Clearing the clutter is not just for the end of the season! 

The simplest way to maximize the space in a studio apartment is to clean it often. De-clutter the space often to get rid of the things you do not need any longer. Believe in that less is more, so do not purchase items that you do not need. The less stuff you have, the bigger your apartment will look. Start by de-cluttering your studio apartment and then start planning a layout for your space.

Choose a Light Colour Palette

Choosing a light colour and creating a cohesive colour palette for the entire apartment will pull together the entire studio apartment. Moreover, a unified colour palette will make the apartment more spacious. Moreover, a coherent colour scheme will also complement each element of your apartment including your furniture, cabinets and countertops and door. 

Keep the paint colour light, which will make your studio apartment look bigger. Also arrange all the furniture items and other décor items such as rugs and curtains in accordance with the colour palette, to pull the theme together. And just by doing some basic and budget-friendly upgrades, you can increase the value of your home.

Choose Compact Furniture With Storage Solutions

When it comes to living in a studio apartment, choose compact furniture designed for small spaces. Always pick furniture items carefully, as more items will make the space cluttered and crowded. Therefore, furniture items must be multifunctional, compact and offer a lot of storage space. Invest in sofa cum beds and coffee tables with storage options, which will resolve the storage problem of studio apartments. You can stack several items including your books, and day blankets without cluttering the space. Several furniture studios design furniture items intended for smaller and studio apartments. 

Design An Accent Wall in Your Studio Apartment

Decorating a studio apartment can be an enticing yet equally difficult task, because you have a limited space to decorate. Create an accent wall to put emphasis on that space. Add a pop of colour or pick a wallpaper for that wall space in your studio apartment. It can be anywhere behind your bed, behind the kitchen counter, behind the sofa or right in front of the entrance door.

If you have not bought this property for sale in Dubai, you may have to take permission from your landlord to make any significant change in your apartment. If you cannot paint the wall, use stick-on decals or wallpapers.

Use Mirrors to Open Up Space

A well-placed and beautifully designed mirror will open up your small studio space. Mirrors have the ability to create a great illusion, which can give a look of increased space. You should pick mirrors of different sizes and mix and match them in any way you want. For instance, you have picked a full-size, gold-rimmed, statement mirror but you can mix and match it with a mirrored chest of drawers or a mirror TV unit. 

Similarly, you can add a large floor mirror for your studio apartment and create a gallery wall of mirrors to complement it. You can also hang a window-style mirror above the chest of drawers to look like another window. Nowadays, you can find a variety of mirrors in the furniture design showrooms in Dubai, from where you can pick according to your choice and apartment requirement. 

Choose Creative Storage Solutions

Space can be limited in a studio apartment, so get creative with your storage options. That is why, we suggested investing in compact and practical furniture items. Container beds and coffee tables with storage options are great examples. You can also add cabinets above the crown of the bed and use these boxes to store items that you do not need on a daily or regular basis. 

This type of storage option will be practical and make an apartment look and appear bigger. According to interior designers, cabinets must be in the same colour as your wall and they will instantly make the space appear bigger, according to a similar theme. 

Opt For a Room Divider

Room dividers are a great way to make your studio apartment look bigger and keep it bright and open. Moreover, these room dividers offer more privacy by compartmentalizing the studio space. You can create a room divider yourself as well using pallet walls, hanging curtains and glass room dividers.
