When you start off the project of decorating studio apartment, the first thing that you need to do is create proper sections. This basically means designating separate areas for kitchen, bed and living space. In case of compact studio apartments, sleeping space and living room remains the same.

Living area can be well-organized to accommodate the television set and music player. Well, now that the basics are worked out, clean the entire space, de-clutter and sort out necessary and thrash items. Get ready to implement the next set of ideas for decorating studio apartment.

Room Partitions are the 'Must Haves' of Studio Apartments

While studio apartments miss the much-needed privacy factory, you can add the same using partitions. I am sure most of you would love to implement this idea. An opaque foldable partition is ideal pick for your studio apartment. Use this to create a bedroom at one end of the apartment.
A semi-transparent piece can be used to form a separate area for study or relaxing. There is a huge variety available in wood, acrylic fiber, tinted, frosted or clear glass, metal or fabric and metal combo room partitions.
Moreover, most of the pieces have foldable structure so that you can have a larger area to use whenever needed. A piece of furniture can also be smartly used as a room partition. Here's one such idea. Buy a shelf that is as tall as the top boundary of house windows and wide enough to work as a partition.
Now, place this in between living space and sleeping area, so that it works as a room partition and hence, forms a private space for bedroom. Ensure that the doors and drawers of this tall shelf open in the living space. A wide closet, wardrobe, book shelf or a large television stand can be used in the way to create room partition in studio apartment.

Get in Space Saver and Multi-Functional Furniture

One of the important studio apartment decorating tips is 'no excess furniture'. Remember, if you want to divide the area properly, so use the furniture sparingly and smartly. Place a sofa bed in living area, which can be opened up and used as a bed when needed. Add two matching, but lightweight chairs to make a good sofa set.
You can move these chairs to any other section whenever required. Wall embedded closet and a bed with storage space are the most important furniture units for bed area. Fix loft cabinets in the bedroom and enjoy a lot of storage space overhead. Opt for sleek and foldable set of table and chairs for study, if required.
Having your television set fitted right on a wall will save a lot of space. Or have a multifunctional furniture unit with a mix of open and closed shelves that accommodate entertainment center and many other things like, books, show pieces and other household stuff.
Kitchen can have a mix of open and closed shelves overhead and tall pull out trolleys that will look attractive and hold most of the cooking essentials.

Spice Up the Space With Fancy Add-ons

While the entire set up is done, it is time to jazz up the space. Though small, studio apartments can look really amazing with the right decor pieces added to beautify the space. Explore the options in room illumination and grab those classy chandeliers and contemporary pendant lamps.
Colorful pendant lamps are sure to spruce up your studio apartment. Proper illumination is essential to make the area look bigger and brighter. Add pendant lamps over the kitchen island as well. Get in bright and rich furnishings. Add colorful throw pillows to the sofa set. Rugs and tall curtains are the ultimate elements that can be used for space makeover.
Well, thick and opaque, ceiling to floor curtains can also be used as space partition. Isn't it one of the coolest studio apartment decorating ideas?
Follow a soft color theme and match furnishings with wall colors to create a nice ambiance. If possible, have the furniture items, including kitchen trolleys, cabinets, closet, bed and overhead storage finished with colored veneers that blend with the apartment color theme.
Decorating a studio apartment smartly and creatively can make it look better than a proper 2/3 bedroom apartment. Remember, while you work on the same, do not clutter the floor and entrance area so that the apartment looks spacious as soon as you enter in.
