Organizing Your Studio Apartement
A studio apartment consists of a single room plus a bathroom. The single room of the apartment must function as the kitchen, living room and bedroom. If you already have a studio apartment, and want to organize it, then here are several tips for you. Separate your sleeping area in a studio apartment with freestanding screens or bookcases. Paint the back of the bookcase with chalkboard paint and use it for messages and brainstorming, or cover it with fabric and use it as the headboard for your bed. Buy a bed that’s designed for small spaces: a loft bed, Murphy bed, sleeper sofa, daybed or futon. These let you reclaim the sleeping area when you’re awake. Also look at beds that have storage drawers under the mattress instead of a box spring. Look for home office furniture that can fold up and roll out of the way when not in use. If you already have a favorite worktable or desk, put it on easy-rolling casters
Get a drop-leaf table for your studio apartment. Fold out one leaf and use it as a desk, fold out both leaves for dinner parties, or fold up the whole thing and push it against a wall when not in use. Group most of your belongings in one or two areas. More floor space will make your place seem larger.
