Congratulations! Finally, you've moved into a place of your own. So what if it's the size of a shoe box? Use these studio apartment furniture ideas to transform your tiny place into a comfortable abode.
Studio apartments belong to the recent crop of space-challenged, yet sleek, modern homes. Students and young working bachelors are the main inhabitants of this type of dwelling. Unfortunately, they may or may not care two hoots about decorating their apartment. Their homes often resemble a post-burglary site.
You do not intend to live there for the rest of your life, but you can at least take efforts to minimally decorate it to make your stay comfortable. If you are one of those who wish to give their studio apartment the status and respect of a true home, then these interior design ideas are for you.


A studio apartment is essentially a large room without separate areas for the kitchen, bedroom, or living. You can hardly think of buying the usual home furniture. Furniture for such apartments must be extremely space saving, multi-functional, easy to maintain, and lightweight. With all these constraints, finding right appliance can become a daunting task.
If you know exactly what you need, buying the right stuff can become a lot simpler. Firstly, it is best to build imaginary walls to get an idea regarding the space that can be allotted to each section - cooking, dining, living, and sleeping. This also helps in proper arrangement. Measure these sections, and only then, get ready to scout the shops.



● If you have a small corner with a cooktop as your kitchen, use creativity to convert this into a cozy working area.
● Don't opt for kitchen cabinets that take a lot of space when pulled out. Use wall-mounted shelves or cupboards.
● Get some open hooks to hang your pots and pans.
● Buy chairs and kitchen tables with storage space, to accommodate plates, glasses, and cutlery.
● You can also use this space to store sauces, salt, pepper, and ready-to-cook foods.
● Since you won't be cooking for a large group very often, you can do with sleeker, smaller kitchen appliances.

Living Space

● A convertible sofa cum bed is used as a couch during day, and a bed by night.
● A small folding table to serve food when you have visitors can also function as a coffee table. Fold it, and put it away when not in use.
● If you still have those sturdy boxes you used while moving in, then transform them into a makeshift table. Arrange them in desired height and width, and throw a nice table cloth over them. Or decrease the height and add a few more boxes, throw a futon on them, and invite a couple of friends for sleepover.


● If you can afford the luxury of having a separate bed, then opt for a Murphy bed, which goes inside a wall when not in use.
● A floating bed or a ceiling bed can also be a space-saving option.
● If possible, divide the sleeping area with curtains or other room dividers to have some amount of privacy.
Thus, furnishing your studio apartment shouldn't be a problem anymore. Using these ideas, you can easily create a comfortable living space for yourself.
