How to Furnish a Studio Apartment

I recently moved into to the 500-square-foot studio apartment I lived in when I first moved to Washington, DC. I was in my own early 20's in the past and single. NOW I AM pushing 30, no longer one and I have a much better sense of how exactly to decorate and furnish a studio in a way that actually works.

I'm finding the experience of furnishing and decorating my small space liberating and exciting. After all, I went from a large two bedroom to basically 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 little studio residence and speaking from a previous failed attempt, I found a solution that works.

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

Exactly what is a studio apartment?

A studio, also sometimes referred to as efficiency is an apartment that's between 300 to 600 square foot with essentially one room. The one room functions as a full time income room, dining room, bedroom, and kitchen. Even your kitchen usually doesn't have an actual wall. My kitchen for instance, has a sliding partition. One plus that I've observed in studios here in DC and in my hometown of New York are foyers, aka dressing locations leading into the bathroom. I love those little rooms because they're like awesome stroll 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 simple site and virtually touching the family room space. Or worse yet, be a combination of both and dead room. I know I don't so I'll share some tips with you about how exactly you too can have just a little personal privacy in your intimate little area by choosing the right furnishings and partitioning spaces based on their functionality.

To start off

  • Take a look at your studio apartment's floor-plan (or sketch one if you don't have one readily available) and start playing around with different layout choices that may work for you. Is your room big enough to split it into sections and make it more functional? Consider things such as whether you plan on having friends over frequently (in which particular case you'd would like a guest-friendly layout) or you plan on doing the entertaining outside of your home and you will be using it simply for some 'me period' and sleeping. 
  • Remember that you have limited space so every piece of furniture will have a significant impact.
  • Get your innovative juices flowing and begin thinking about how you can use the furniture pieces you need to buy to function double-duty and putting 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 room set in the back again. The trunk of the couch can be the separator you have to designate your dining room. So there you already have two different rooms. After that toward the end of the area, you could have your bed.

Ways to Separate a Room

Although some may disagree, I think 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 understood that separating a studio area adds functionality as opposed to having your bed and liveable space back-to-back.

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

  • Bookcase room divider. That one is my preferred route, particularly with bookcases which have both sides finished. Not merely does a bookcase separate a room, in addition, it does double-duty as storage space and book display situation. It could 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 come in all different sizes (short/tall, wide/narrow) and styles. They actually work as even more of a symbolic divider, necessary since we all need some privacy. Screens may also be an easy solution to completely conceal your mattress by using two of them. You additionally have the option of getting a shoji, a Japanese-style area divider.
  • Curtains. This is an easy way to go - who needs walls when you're able to have a curtain? Well probably if you would like some privacy and quiet time but otherwise, curtains are inexpensive, easy to install, and easy to remove. It's a excellent temporary solution!
