Don’t leave any space unused

In a studio apartment, you will have limited floor space, so it’s a huge mistake to leave any area unused. Now, of course, we know that you can’t cover every square inch because you need room to move and live comfortably, but you do need to make sure that you maximize every square inch. Use bed risers to elevate your bed so that you can store things like seasonal clothing and shoes underneath. These risers are adjustable up to 3, 5, and 8 inches for additional storage space. Consider investing in foldable kitchen table that you can put away if needed or find one with drop down shelving to utilize. Purchase an ottoman that features a hollow inside for extra storage space and use it as your coffee table, as well. Don’t write-off any nook in your apartment and try to think outside of the box. You can make 600 square feet feel like 1000 if you get creative!

Don’t use oversized furniture

The quickest way to make a room feel smaller is to stuff it with large, oversized furniture. A California King sized bed and a sectional sofa in a studio apartment just won’t work. It’s not necessarily that they won’t fit, but that they will interrupt the flow of your home. You don’t want your guests to only see a huge couch and bed when they walk into your place. Look for smaller furniture items that will complement the small space they’re in.

Don’t set up your space like a single, large room

Your studio apartment is technically one big room; however, you can separate areas in the home with special functions. Try hanging curtains from the ceiling to enclose your bed, making it more like a private bedroom. Lay a rug to distinguish your living area from the dining room. Invest in a wider bookshelf that can double as a wall and storage space!

If you avoid these don’ts, our studio apartments in Rowlett, TX will feel and look bigger than they actually are. Come home to The Village of Rowlett today!
