Studio apartments consist of a small space that is put together by a bedroom, a kitchenette and a living room all in one. If you are handled the task of decorating a studio apartment, then it will be daunting the first time. However the key to getting it done tastefully is to make use of every single space with a purpose. A small space can be made to look spacious if you know a few gimmicks to trick your eye and by utilizing multipurpose furniture. Here are a few tips that you can make use of when decorating your apartment.
Divide the studio into sub-rooms
As we know that the single space in the studio apartment serves to function as the living, bedroom and a kitchen, it is important to make them look as separate as they can. This is in stark contrast to how a Singapore condo interior design would look like. You can separate the space with the help of couches or armchairs for example to separate the living area. This way is ideal if you are the type of person who appreciates a minimalistic style as it doesn’t require any unnecessary or additional furniture. The use of rugs or coffee tables can instantly make your apartment look more cozy and organized.
Placement of the bed
It is important to place your bed either parallel or perpendicular to the wall in a small space. This is because if you place your bed at the center of the room this will take up too much space. Many interior design experts will even go on to recommend investing in a pull-out bed or a day bed so that you can use the bed only when you need them.
Install moveable room dividers
Room dividers or separators are also an excellent way of helping you divide the studio in to sections. A folding screen or drapes mounted from the ceiling will take up minimal space and can also be removed when they are not been used. Rooms look aesthetically pleasing when they are divided in to ratios of one third or two thirds proportions.
When it comes to storage, it is best to choose shelves or cupboards that are tall and thin. This will help you to store more things without utilizing more space. Moreover, a large bookshelf or a wardrobe can also serve as divider between two sections of your studio such as the bedroom and living area. Placing these types of furniture near doorways and windows will give you the illusion of more space and height.
