Finding furniture for your studio apartment in Melbourne is essential, but there are other ways that you can give your studio some panache.
Paint each area a different but complementary colour. This is a visual trick that expands the room to the viewer. If you want to have one area coloured differently, try the living room space. It will help set it apart from the private areas of your studio apartment.
Think about using portable walls to separate areas. This can be something as simple as shelving unit or as high-end as a panelled glass wall. You can use a bookcase open on both sides for the same effect. It separates the space but still lets light through. It’s a cool way to both separate areas in a small space yet allow light to expand it as well.
Always be thinking up. Use your walls to create levels. It’s one way to make a compelling use of space. Hang lights or plants from the ceiling there’s no sense wasting all that space up there. It will leave more room below for storage and larger pieces that might otherwise need to be smaller.
