Maximizing space in a Vancouver studio apartment can seem like a daunting task, although it is a fun challenge. A studio apartment is a cheap option for those who are single and looking to save money, and minimize the amount of things they own. It’s the perfect opportunity to purge, organize and find compact décor.
Lots of Light
Light has a magical way of making everything bright and roomy. If you have small windows, try not to cover them with dark curtains, and if your place naturally gets low light, optimize lamps! If the walls are painted a dark colour, you can ask your landlord if you could paint them all white to reflect light.
Purge & Organize
Now is the time to purge old items you don’t need and organize everything you do keep. This will help you keep everything neat, organized and clean without a lot of effort. You can donate things you no longer need, and buy stylish baskets and containers for organizing the rest of your things. You can also use some things as décor if you don’t have enough storage.
Mirrors reflect light, and space, so that your apartment will seem bigger than it really is. You can utilize a tall, standing mirror or hang up a large mirror on the wall. This is especially great if you tend to get claustrophobic in small spaces.
Maximize Your Bed
Your bed will most likely be the centre of attention. You can buy a couch that turns into a couch, or a daybed that can easily transform. You can also utilize storage space underneath the bed with containers, or buy a bed that already has storage built in. This is the one piece of furniture that can multitask throughout your studio!
Use Room Dividers
Room dividers magically create rooms, even if they don’t exist within a space. You can also use large plants or tapestries to separate a space.
