How to make the most out of a studio apartment

A studio apartment is a type of apartment that has only one room that contains all the essential elements that enable it to serve as a home, like a living room, a dining room, a bedroom and a bathroom. When designing this kind of apartment, the key is to make all these spaces coexist in the most efficient way. This is also the reason why they are often referred as “efficiency apartments”.

Studio apartments in Milan are a very effective solution for people who are looking for a place to stay on their own, as they require a lower budget and therefore there are greater chances to get to live in a more central area of the city. Living in a studio apartment can also be challenging sometimes, so here are a few tips on how to make the most out of it.

Keep it simple

When you rent a studio apartment try to avoid to overcrowd it: the more pieces of furniture and possessions in general you keep, the more it will feel cluttered.
Also, choose simple colors (you never go wrong with white walls) and concentrate your frames on one or two walls.

Use mirrors

Consider using mirrors in order to create a greater sense of deepness and openness of your studio apartment for rent. That way you have a perception of having more space available and it also helps reflecting light, making your surroundings brighter.

Use light and breezy fabrics

When you look for a studio apartment for rent in Milan you should also pay attention to fabrics. Heavy materials have the tendency to absorb light. Using lightweight materials, like linen for instance, will increase the feeling of airiness in the room.

Go vertical

As space in terms of square meters is limited, try taking advantage of vertical space: whether it is a tall shelf or a closet it will help you storing your stuff and keep it tidy.

Clean as you go

When you live in small spaces, you have to be strict with yourself: tidy up as soon as you have used your things and clean immediately dishes after meals. One day’s worth of mess will feel like a week!
