If you live in a studio apartment, you know the challenges that come with having a space that’s only 200 to 450 square feet. In order to maintain a tidy home, not only should you focus on maximizing your storage solutions, you should narrow down your items to only the most important multi functional pieces. Whether you’re downsizing, moving into a new place, or all about that minimalist lifestyle, below are a few tips to help make the most out of your small space.

               — Dining/Kitchenette Area —


Don’t forget to create a small space to sit down and enjoy meals, even if your kitchen doesn’t have a dining area. Our Carly 3-piece triangle dining set is perfect for a romantic dinner date, or to enjoy your early morning coffee.

                                — Bedroom —

You can create a private sleeping area by separating an open space with large room dividers. The vertical storage makes for an additional place to display your books, home décor + necessities. To maximize storage space for clothing, use a dresser instead of a TV stand in the “living room” area.
                                 — Living Room —

Make the most out of the space you will spend the most time in. If you really enjoy having a few friends over, don’t let your small space limit you. Leather storage ottomans not only maximize the space used in the center of the room, but are comfy enough to sit on, play games on, and set down your drinks and snacks on. By adding a swivel chair in between the kitchen/petite dining area and living room, you can bring the two spaces together because it faces both ways. If you occasionally host overnight guests or have a young child, a sleeper sofa is a perfect solution to accommodate an extra person in a small space.
                                 — Entry Way —

It may be a small space, but it doesn’t mean you can’t create a special place to welcome you home every day. By selecting an entry table that can be used as a workspace/desk, or even a vanity area, you’re maximizing a corner of your small space to an all-in-one destination.
