Luxury living at Banner Hill comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. Our studio apartments in Baltimore range from approximately 533 to 588 sq. ft. and come in five distinct layouts. When considering renting a studio (AKA: “efficiency” or “micro”) apartment, potential residents may wonder how to package their life into a space less than 600 sq. ft. Here are some helpful tips on how to make the most of our studio apartment spaces for rent:
Tip #1: Multi-Purpose Furnishing
To maximize space and avoid clutter, make sure that your furniture can be used for multiple purposes. For example, while it may not feel like there is space for a separate work desk and a vanity in a studio apartment, it is easy to combine the two. Just add a decorative mirror above your desk and presto – a dual use space! Another trick is to choose side tables that can easily be used as extra seating if needed. A pull-out couch is another option to explore if renters really want to take full advantage of their studio space.
Tip #2: Avoid Separating Spaces
Most of our studio apartments in Baltimore have some separation between the bedroom and the other living spaces. For those used to traditional living spaces, it may feel more natural to divide a studio apartment into designated spaces. However, be cautious when trying to create divisions within a studio layout. It is easy to make a relatively smaller space seem even smaller when chopping it up with curtains, bookcases, moveable walls, etc. It is preferable to create separation visually with color scheme (like neutrals with different accent colors) and furniture arrangement.
Tip #3: Control Clutter
In a studio apartment, it is important to control clutter. This can potentially be the most challenging aspect of studio apartment living for some renters. Create more storage and organize by making use of the vertical space in our apartment homes. For belongings that are not needed very often, use shelving and bins to keep them off the ground and out of the way.
Keep the apartment picked up and clean. If the bedroom is visible from the living areas make sure the bed is made. The good news is that it will take less time to declutter since there is less space. Maintaining clutter on a daily basis will keep your place looking neat and spacious.
