Define the Space. Defining your space will make each area private and a sense of space. This will help you manage and utilize the limited space and make separate functional living areas. Bookcases, open shelves, blinds, or even sofas are great room dividers.

The Size of Furniture. Measure the assigned space for each room. Avoid choosing big pieces of furniture. Keep in mind that the room will appear larger if more floors are visible. So, pick furniture that has legs. Choose furniture that is appropriate to the size of each area but do not fill your space with small pieces of furniture. It is better to have one big modern sofa than have four or five chairs.

Furniture Design. Keep it simple and striking. Make use of multipurpose furniture to prevent clutter. With a limited space, you cannot afford to have items scattered on the floor or pile up on top of the other or other furniture.

Pick furniture that offers storage space. Modern furniture designers have introduced practical, dual-purpose, and space-saving furniture.

Establish a Focal Point. A focal point is important in small spaces. For example, a red modern couch is a perfect focal point in the living room or a melodramatic bed in the bedroom. Again, make sure that the size of your accent furniture is appropriate for the size of the room.

The secret in having an efficient, comfortable, and attractive studio apartment lies in the furniture layout. Place furniture appropriately to avoid blocking traffic through the space. A better method to keep your area functional is having an “L-shaped” layout. This allows good traffic preventing people to bump into each other or knock the furniture.
