Making the most of a small space requires a certain amount of design. Here are a few steal style ideas for your studio apartment rental.
- Go in for fewer, larger pieces of furniture instead of many, smaller pieces.
- Try adding a wall-to-wall bookcase. Not only will it expand how high your ceilings look but also be a great way to add storage. It will also turn the focus upward and make you forget about limited floor space.
- A mirror placed opposite a window will instantly make a room feel bigger.
- Declutter. Reduce, discard and then enjoy your spacious, mess-free space.
- Place a curtain around the bed. It’ll give you a feeling of a cozy bed tucked into a cubby.
- Let the colour of your drapes match that of your walls. Also, having some of the furniture in the same colour as your walls, will help your space look wider.
- Create multi-functional spaces. Use your couch to watch TV and the pull-out bed inside for when you have guests over. Let the ottoman serve double duty by functioning as a coffee table and storage for your throws or linen.
- Throw in a few see-through furniture pieces such as glass tables and acrylic pieces. They’ll trick the eye into thinking there’s more space than there actually is.
- Go big. Dramatic art pieces that are slightly oversized will make the space feel more open.
- You don’t have to fill up every square inch. Leave some blank space – be it a wall or just room on the floor.
- Nicecycle: What’s lingering in your closet? Take a good look at what you have that has some visual appeal. Be it a travel souvenir, a collection of family photos, books or perhaps even an old kimono, they’re great ways to add colour and elevate the mood of the room.
- Upcycle furniture: Don’t give up on that battered old chair or footstool just yet. Reupholster them! Repaint or replace door and drawer knobs or apply a coat or two of paint to your table, chairs and dull alcove shelves for a fresh, new look.
- Rearrange décor: Moving furniture around can be an instant lift-me-up. Try placing the desk by a window, the couch by the television or move art to different walls to change the mood.
- Paint: It’s one of the cheapest tweaks you can make to switch up a space. Instead of repainting the entire room, try painting just the insides of bookshelves or just one wall.
- Wall stickers: Choose big, bold designs and use them to accentuate features such as a painting or mirror. Not only are they affordable, they’re also easy to apply and easy to take down if you fancy a change.
- Change the frames: Decorate a wall with frames of varying shapes and sizes or unexpected wall fixtures such as a glass vase filled with flowers or coloured pebbles or just left as is, to make the room interesting.
- Roll out the carpet: A small, printed rug can add a warm, decorative element to your living room and is a great way to decorate on the cheap.
- Throws: Throws add a dash of colour, are perfect to snuggle under and instantly refresh a tired room.
- Go green: Buying fresh flowers can add up, so pick up realistic faux florals – they make any room feel livelier. Better still, plant some aromatic herbs and place them in a colourful window box for a quick update to your studio apartment rental.
- Change the lighting: Replace an old lampshade with a bright one. Or just clean the ones you’ve got! If the lamp you have doesn’t match the décor, hide it behind a piece of furniture so that your studio apartment rental can still enjoy the light.
