If you live in a studio apartment, the open space could be intimidating. It may look almost too big to make sense of or too small to do anything with it. However, the key to decorating a studio apartment is as simple as being creative and looking beyond the intimidating walls and floors.
The way you angle your furniture can create the illusion of space. Big furniture items such as desks, shelves and the bed are pieces that can provide that new perspective. A slight tilt here and there can give you not just the space you need, but also a more interesting look to your place.
This is the big idea behind loft apartments. Reach for the sky, or in this case, the ceiling. Make more out of your space with bunk beds or see pieces you can pile on top of each other to create more floor space.
If you have the time and budget, see if you can create shelves that line the ceiling for storage and decorative purposes.
Open up your shelves, even your closet. A recent trend in small apartment interior design is open space, where the covers and doors are taken off shelves and closets to create a more transparent and open look.
For more delicate possessions, these can still be hidden in a covered basket or storage box.
Wall dividers can be found at any outlet store or secondhand home stores . You can also make use of shelves or even the edges of tables and beds to define spaces.
