A studio unit space has its own set of challenges - the primary concern being the limited space and privacy. However, it still still has a number of advantages, particularly the low price or rent, which makes it a popular option for many home buyers and renters. Here's how to make the most of studio unit living...
Keep clutter at bay
Clutter can make any space, no matter how big, look small and disorganized. Constant cleanup and organization is key to creating a lovely home so don’t leave your plates unwashed and groceries unsorted. If you’re lacking storage space, it may be time for reorganizing your cabinets and closets.
Living in a studio unit means storage space is a luxury, so you'll need to starting shopping accordingly. Don’t stock up on too many groceries or acquire too many personal items such as gadgets or shoes. Acknowledge the amount of storage space you have, and don’t buy any more than you can afford to store.
Choose smart storage
Installing flexible storage systems is a must as smart storage systems have adjustable shelves and racks, making it easier to adapt to your surroundings. There are also pullout mechanisms for corner spaces as well. Take advantage of the space behind cabinet doors where you can hang items on hooks.
Employ effective dividers
The lack of partitions in a studio unit makes it less functional in terms of privacy. Use screens or creative dividers such as art pieces to divide your private and public spaces this way, you can have guests over without sacrificing your personal space.
