Make Your Tiny Studio Apartment Feel Bigger

Size DOESN'T matter if you've got the right furnishings. With small studio apartments being something of a trend these days, smart decorating tips and techniques to make them feel more spacious have grown aplenty, and even more creative and resourceful. Check out what you can do for your digs:

 

Paint with light colors

Stick to subtle and light colors for your ceiling, your wall, and your floor. White is the standard: since it reflects a lot of light, it makes the space appear bigger, and bright and airy to boot.

 

Install mirrors

Mirrors add depth to a room. They can double the size of the space, even if only visually. They can also seem like additional windows, especially if you place them across an actual window. Also, they reflect a lot of light. The bigger the mirror, the bigger the room will seem.

 

Use double-duty furniture

From the term itself, double-duty furniture duke out more than one function in the home. A folding sofa bed, for instance: it's a staple in many tiny studios and flats.

 

Opt for transpareny

Whether it's made of glass or plastic, see-through furniture create the illusion of more space, looking as if they were barely there. Use a glass coffee table instead of a wooden one, for instance. And do away with big, bulky, and hulking furniture. Opt for sleek modern shapes with clean lines and simple design.

 

Paint a border on your ceiling

Using the same color as your walls, paint a border around five inches thick on the edges of your ceiling. It will draw the eye upwards and create the illusion of higher ceilings in your tiny flat.

 

Accentuate with stripes

Vertical stripes will likewise make the ceiling appear much higher. Horizontal stripes will, on the other hand, make the room seem wider. Accentuate a wall in your home with stripes to achieve this effect.
