2. A glass partition in a studio apartment gives a very open and airy feel. Even though it takes away some of the privacy, it gives off a trendy vibe. It gives the room an ultra modern and classy look. Also, having a large mirror can also help create an illusion of a whole lot of space in the apartment. A flowy white curtain would do too if you don’t like the idea of a glass partition. A light curtain would be just as stylish.

3. A sofa or couch does not always have to be the first go to especially if you do not have enough space, you can always just try having two comfy chairs instead.

9. When choosing a window blind or curtains, it is preferable to go for something that blocks out a lot of light when the room is being used as a bedroom. That doesn’t mean it should not be stylish at the same time.

10. For people that would love to have a work area in their studio apartments, (which basically depends on the space available), keep shelving for work items directly above your desk space so as to keep your work area organized. You can also mix in decorative accessories to reduce the office-like feeling a tad bit. A homely frame, a desk lamp or a scented candle can do just that. Remember to pick a work area furniture in theme with the rest of your apartment. You can also add a pinboard to the wall to keep your sticky notes and clutter off the desk.
