Studio apartments are turning out to be an emerging trend. They are considered to be perfect for individuals and even couples wanting to stay in an urban city. However, one of the most significant problems faced by a studio apartment is the lack of space. That is why in today's article we are going to tell you about 10 ways which you can use to maximize the area of your home.

1. Sliding doors

One of the simplest ways to make your studio apartment feel spacious is by opting for sliding doors instead of the regular ones. These doors can help you save sufficient amount of floor area as well.

2. Hanging shelves

Another way to maximize space in your small apartment is with the help of hanging shelves. Since these shelves are wall or ceiling mounted they free up a lot of ground space which can be utilized for better things.

3. Multipurpose furniture

Multipurpose furniture is ideal for small apartments as they serve two or more purposes without making the home look cramped. For example, here the study desk also extends into a beautiful bookcase.

4. Decorative partitions

A small home should never have permanent walls. Instead, you can use decorative partitions as shown in the picture to divide different areas of your studio apartment. They also allow the light to flow uninterrupted into every corner of the place.

5. Wall mounted TV

Television is the central component of a living room. However, it takes a lot of space if you place it in a cabinet. That is why you should always opt for a wall mounted TV especially if you have a small apartment.

6. Hanging lamps

Floor lamps are a prevalent form of light fixtures these days. But they can take up a lot of ground space which is why a better alternative is to have hanging lamps all over the house.

7. Elevated bed

Storage can never be enough in a studio apartment. Therefore, investing in a high-rise bed can allow you to utilize the space beneath it as additional storage.

8. Minimalist style

The easiest and the quickest way of making your studio apartment feel big is by using a minimalistic design theme. You should always opt for light colours as your base with just a touch of a few bold ones.

9. Sleek furniture

Chunky looking furniture is a big negative when it comes to small houses. It makes the space look congested which is why sleek furniture is highly recommended.

Curtains can also be a great alternative to permanent walls. They allow you to separate the area without having to spend a fortune on building a wall or buying a full-size partition.
