Got a small apartment or studio? Organizing a small apartment or studio for both living and sleeping can be challenging. The key is to carefully plan where things will go and how it will be used.
Consider buying furniture that can serve more than one purpose — such as an ottoman that has a hidden storage area, sofa beds or futon sofas. Look for desks, coffee tables and other furniture pieces that have multiple storage options.
Bedroom and Bath Products
Find ways to hide blankets, pillows, towels and beauty products, such as corner shelving units and storage tubs that fit under furniture and laundry bags.
Put It on the Wall
Maximize space by purchasing a flat-screen TV that can be mounted to the wall, thus eliminating the need for one piece of furniture.
Use screens or hang curtains from the ceiling to divide your bed from the living area. Buy a room divider that has shelving on both sides so you can store items or use it for decorating.
The brighter an area is, the larger it will appear. Mirrors on the walls will reflect light and make the apartment seem larger. Keep drapes open at all times to allow as much natural light in and use light fixtures throughout the apartment at night.
