How to Furnish a Studio Apartment

Not long ago I moved into to the 500-square-foot studio apartment I lived in when I first moved to Washington, DC. I was in my early 20's back then and single. NOW I AM pushing 30, no longer single and I have a much better sense of how to decorate and furnish a studio in a way that actually works.

I'm finding the connection with furnishing and decorating my small space liberating and exciting. I mean, I went from a large two bedroom to basically one long room. Needless to say, not only have I came across storage space an issue, walls as well! So I am faced with the issue of furnishing this small studio apartment and speaking from the previous failed attempt, I found a solution that works.

Keep reading for tips about decorating and furnishing your own studio apartment... and hopefully some motivation from my furnishing and designing experience.

What is a studio apartment?

A studio, also sometimes known as efficiency can be an apartment that's between 300 to 600 square ft with essentially one area. The one room functions as a full time income room, dining area, bedroom, and kitchen. Even your kitchen usually doesn't have a genuine wall. My kitchen for instance, has a sliding partition. One plus that I've seen in studios within DC and in my hometown of New York are foyers, aka dressing areas leading into the bathroom. I love those little areas because they're like awesome walk in closets.

Effiiency Apartment Furniture Placement

The open floor plan of a studio apartment can make furniture placement quiet tricky. Who wants their sleeping space in basic site and virtually touching the living room space. Or worse however, be a mixture of both and dead space. I understand I don't so I'll share some tricks with you about how exactly you too can have just a little personal privacy in your intimate little room by choosing the right furniture pieces and partitioning spaces predicated on their functionality.

To start off

  • Take a look at your studio apartment's floor-plan (or even sketch one if you don't have one on hand) and start experimenting with different layout choices that will work for you. Is your room big sufficiently to split it into sections and make it more functional? Consider things like whether you plan on having friends over regularly (in which case you'd would like a guest-pleasant layout) or you plan on doing the entertaining outside of your home and you will be using it simply for some 'me time' and sleeping. 
  • Keep in mind that you have limited space so every furniture piece will have a major impact.
  • Get your creative juices flowing and start thinking of how you can use the furniture pieces you would like to buy to function double-duty and placing your furniture in unconventional ways. Who knows, if your area is wide, maybe it'll seem sensible to place the couch in the middle of the room, a TV stand in the front and perhaps a cute three item dining area set in the back again. The trunk of the couch could possibly be the separator you have to designate your dining area. So there you already have two different rooms. After that toward the end of the area, you can have your bed.

Ways to Separate a Room

Although quite a few may disagree, I believe separating a studio apartment, which is simply one room is a must - particularly the bed from the rest of the room. Having gone the 'open space' route, I quickly realized that separating a studio room adds functionality as opposed to having your bed and living space back-to-back.

There are many of methods for you to separate a room - below are the major options you have.

  • Bookcase room divider. This one is my preferred route, particularly with bookcases which have both sides finished. Not only does a bookcase separate an area, it also does double-duty as storage space and book display case. It could even double as a night the stand by position placing your lamp on one of the shelves. I really like how it keeps the area airy, while partitioning off the bed-area from the family room and looking so chic!
  • Folding screens. These can be found in all different sizes (short/tall, broad/narrow) and styles. They actually work as even more of a symbolic divider, required since we all need some privacy. Screens can also be an easy solution to completely conceal your mattress by using two of them. You additionally have the option to getting a shoji, a Japanese-style room divider.
  • Curtains. This is an easy strategy to use - who needs walls when you can have a curtain? Well probably if you would like some privacy and quiet time but otherwise, curtains are cheap, easy to install, and simple to remove. It's a great temporary solution!
