If you are live in a studio apartment you understand space is at a premium. Your bedroom is your living room and vice versa. So, how do you have friends over during the day without inviting them directly into your boudoir?
Obviously, you want your apartment to look like a nice, well-kept living area so that having people over is never an issue. With these small steps you can have a beautiful living room and then unbeknownst to anyone else have it turn into a fabulous bedroom at night.
A small wardrobe in the corner of the room is the perfect hiding spot for those items you shouldn’t fold. Dresses, slacks blouses can all be stored in a wardrobe and during the day the wardrobe will look like an entertainment center.
A beautiful Bombe chest can double as a chest of drawers and will look stunning as a piece of living room furniture. This is a perfect place to store all your undergarments, socks, and t-shirts.
A day bed is still the best choice for a studio apartment. It can be used as a couch during the day. Place on the couch a few colorful, fun throw pillows that match the room’s décor. At night simply adjust the day bed and turn it from couch to bed. And if you are wondering where you can keep the sheets and blankets? Why, keep them “hidden” in the chest that doubles as a coffee table during the day. Perfect.
Need a place to store small items such as makeup or jewelry? Purchase side tables that have small drawers and put them on either side of the day bed.
Under bed storage is still a great idea especially for bulkier items such as jeans, sweatshirts and pajamas. Slide those boxes right under the day bed and no one will be the wiser.
These are just some of the smart decorating ideas we have come up with so that your studio apartment will be a fantastic place to unwind and entertain friends after the work week but then turn into a cozy, comfortable sleeping quarter for you at night.
