Designing a studio apartment layout presents a new and unique set of challenges. You’ll want to break up the space in a logical way, but there is also no reason for function to completely override aesthetic. Follow these simple tips to achieve the best of both worlds.

Keep the color scheme cohesive: Overcomplicated color schemes will make your apartment feel choppy and busy. Focus on choosing two or three colors and incorporate them throughout the entire apartment rather than in one section. We recommend your dominant shade be a neutral color to open up the space and the secondary color to be a middle shade and then maybe a pop of more accent/vibrant color.

Define each area: each section of your open-concept layout serves a distinct purpose. You should focus on making each section feel like its own room just without the walls or doors to separate things. Ground each area with a few accessories like a few throw rows or even textiles and décor elements to create a sense that the area is fully furnished as a bedroom or a living area.

Create visual height: When you’re working with a completely open-concept layout like your studio apartment in Channelside, visual height is one of your best tools to make the space seem as large as possible. By purposefully drawing eyes upward, you ensure that people take in the space as a whole rather than tiny sections at eye level. To make this happen, utilize anything that draws eyes upward such as room dividers, sizeable wall art, vertical mirrors, vertical shelving, and creating vertical storage

Due to the open-concept design of a studio apartment, it can be difficult to lay out; however, with a few different design techniques, planning and inspiration, you can easily create a space that is both beautiful and functional.
