Clever Furniture Layouts for a 21 sqm Studio Unit
A home comes in different shapes and sizes. The good thing for studio condos is that you have more creative options due to its open layout. A studio-type condominium unit features a design layout where the open-plan room serves as the living, dining/kitchen, and bedroom. This small space will not hinder you from having a luxury home, in fact, a free-flowing and functional design is all that matters.
If you are looking for a studio unit design that works for you and your lifestyle, keep on reading. No, you are not limited to a small bed, a small table, and probably a floor lamp in a corner. Your place can be as cozy as you want it to be. Here are efficient ways to arrange furniture and ways to make the most of studio-type condo spaces.
USE DOUBLE DUTY PIECES
Since we’re all about open living space, space-saving furniture or appliances is needed to be applied. Remember that in buying furniture pieces for your studio unit, think about how many things it can do to your space. Can your table be doubled for dining and work? Do you wish to have an air fryer and a steamer? Why not have a multi-cooker instead. Buying more double purpose pieces will make your studio unit feel bigger.
Additionally, place them according to function. If you have a desk for office work, keep it close to a bookshelf and a couch where you can easily lay down and read a book. Keep the dining table close to the kitchen. Despite having a limited amount of space, your studio unit will be guaranteed cozy.
MAKE YOUR FURNITURE FLOAT
We are not talking about how to defy gravity here. Since you’re already living in a vertical living, why not take your furniture to new heights. Common options include mounting your TV on the wall instead of setting up a bulky home entertainment center. You may also float the speakers, DVRs, and movie collection. Instead of traditional shelves, get floating shelves for your books, office supplies, and frames.
You may even hire designers to have creative storage settings in your studio unit. You would be surprised at the wide array of furniture specifically designed for small spaces. Other than that, custom furniture is way sturdier.
A limited condominium space is never a hindrance in creating your perfect abode. In fact, there are a lot of interior design factors that are best created in a condominium unit.
DEFINE YOUR STYLE
Buying is easy but making your furniture work is easier when you have a specific style in mind. Whichever you opt for, starting from the design in your mind or inspiration from your travels can be very helpful because you can easily weigh down the pros and cons. If you have nowhere to start from, you can always hire a licensed designer, making things easier for your studio unit.
One of the challenges of designing your studio unit is how to identify clear traffic paths. When there’s too much going on in a rather tight space, you seem to not know how to move around. When arranging your furniture, it is important to create a path for traffic and the flow of people. This can be made possible by directing traffic to a center rather than through it. If your “center” is the living room with the sofa as the starting point, traffic from the door should be directed towards it.
Never let the actual space limit your imagination of what your home can become.
