How to Furnish a Studio Apartment

I recently moved into to the 500-square-foot studio apartment We lived in when I very first moved to Washington, DC. I was in my own early 20's in the past and single. Now I'm pushing 30, no longer individual and I have a far greater sense of how exactly to decorate and furnish a studio in a manner that actually works.

I'm finding the experience of furnishing and decorating my tiny space liberating and exciting. After all, I went from a sizable two bedroom to essentially one long room. Needless to say, not only have I found storage space in short supply, walls as well! So I am faced with the dilemma of furnishing this small studio apartment and speaking from the previous failed attempt, I came across a solution that works.

Keep reading for tips on decorating and furnishing your own studio apartment... and hopefully some inspiration from my furnishing and decorating experience.

Exactly what is a studio apartment?

A studio, also sometimes known as efficiency is an apartment that's between 300 to 600 square feet with essentially one area. The one room functions as a full time income room, dining room, bedroom, and kitchen. Even the kitchen usually doesn't have an actual wall. My kitchen for instance, has a sliding partition. One plus that I've observed in studios within DC and in my hometown of NY are foyers, aka dressing areas leading into the bathroom. I really like those little rooms 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 would like their sleeping space in plain site and virtually touching the living room space. Or worse yet, be a combination of both and dead room. I understand I don't so I'll share some techniques with you about how you too can have a little personal privacy in your intimate little space by choosing the right furniture pieces and partitioning spaces based on their functionality.

To start off

  • Check out your studio apartment's floor-plan (or even sketch one unless you have one readily available) and start playing around with different layout choices which will work for you. Can be your room big good enough to split it into sections and make it more functional? Consider things such as whether you intend on having friends over frequently (in which case you'd wish a guest-friendly layout) or you intend on doing the entertaining outside of your home and will be using it just for some 'me period' and sleeping. 
  • Keep in mind that you have limited room so every piece of furniture will have a major impact.
  • Get your creative juices flowing and start thinking of how you can use the furniture pieces you want 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 sofa in the middle of the room, a TV stand in the front as well as perhaps a cute three piece dining room set in the back again. The back of the couch can be the separator you should designate your dining room. So there you already have two different rooms. Then toward the end of the area, you could 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 up space' route, I quickly realized that separating a studio area adds functionality as opposed to having your bed and liveable space back-to-back.

There are a number of ways you can separate a room - here are the major options you have.

  • Bookcase room divider. That one is my preferred route, particularly with bookcases that have both sides finished. Not only does a bookcase separate an area, it also does double-duty as space for storage and book display situation. It can even double as a night the stand by position placing your lamp using one of the shelves. I love 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, wide/narrow) and styles. They really work as even more of a symbolic divider, required since most of us need some privacy. Screens may also be an easy way to completely conceal your mattress by using two of them. You also have the option to getting a shoji, a Japanese-style area divider.
  • Curtains. This is a simple way to go - who needs walls when you're able to have a curtain? Well maybe 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!
