HOW TO MAKE THE MOST OUT OF YOUR SMALL APARTMENT
4Pin It!
You’ve finally moved into your first very own studio/apartment. Yay! The question is, how to furnish that teeny, tiny space called ‘home’. Living in a studio or small apartment is not exactly ideal, but luckily, with the right interior pieces and a good eye for furnishing, you can definitely make it work. Here are a few keys to success:
Use every corner of the roomThere are always hidden spaces, no matter where you live. Try to find those spaces and use them to your advantage. There might just be enough space for a small closet, perfect to stack tiny boxes with all your stuff.
Make your apartment look bigger by using mirrorsMirrors are perfect for making your apartment look bigger than it actually is. They create space and make your apartment brighter too. A typical win-win situation!
Hang your clothes on a rack instead of in a closetA closet is nice and all, but it also takes up a lot of space. If you hang your clothing on a rack instead (beauties like these ones), you’ll have some room left for other items. Plus, it’s a great way to display your new cut out boots or Kenzo sweater.
Create different rooms by placing a closet in the middleIf you live in a studio, you might want to create different rooms. A great way to do so is by placing a closet – extra storage space – in between the two spaces. It’s still one room, but it feels like they’re separated. Divide the living part from the sleeping part or create a cozy corner to relax in.
Put shelves on the wallShelves are a great replacer of small closets or side tables, without taking up too much space. If you own a lot of books, here’s some inspiration.
Make little cornersBy making little corners where you stack your favorite things, like magazines and picture frames, you can personalize your room without making it overcrowded.
