Utilise unused space and make your home a lot more comfortable. The area beneath the stairs is often forgotten, so include extra shelving for storage, or place your TV in this surprising corner.
A studio apartment doesn't mean everything needs to be cramped. Take advantage of the vertical heights and plan your bedroom high above the floor. You will free up some space for extra seating or even create a lovely walk-in closet. How's that for necessity?
If your apartment is small and narrow, then taller, slimmer furniture is perfect to brighten areas and allow freedom of movement. Think minimalist furniture and less is more design for a contemporary interior.
When upgrading your kitchen cabinets, go for doors that reach all the way to the ceiling. This incorporates more storage for those items you don't need every day, keeping the counters neat, tidy and appliances out of sight.
Walls limit space in small apartments, so instead, opt for moveable partitions to designate areas. Consider floor to ceiling cabinets and shelving and designate areas with practical style.
