How to Decorate a Studio Apartment


Decorating a new home is always a ton of fun, and comes with its fair share of challenges. Designing the interior of a studio apartment is even more difficult. You have to decide what deserves to fit in the limited space you're allowed, and what theme really speaks your personality to your guests. At Rustic Kitchen and Bath we take pride in our ability to give our guests and customers the resources to create their dream home. In this blog, we will give you every tip you need to know how to decorate your studio apartment.


Hide Your Bed

How to Decorate Your Studio Apartment

Most studios don’t offer the space for a bed and a sofa for guests, so what do you do? You surely don’t want to sleep on a couch, and you don’t want your guests to feel uncomfortable sitting on your bed. Consider purchasing a trundle bed! A trundle bed is a bed in a hidden compartment on wheels under either a sofa, wooden platform, or another bed to make something similar to a bunk bed. This will create more room for socializing with guests, and make your bedroom seem less personal and more like a common area! 


Use Small Kitchen Appliances

In studios, most people will make the mistake of choosing larger kitchen appliances because they don’t believe small appliances offer the same functionalities and aesthetics as they do. We’re here to debunk that theory. ZLINE’s Studio Collection is not only super affordable, but they are created with the intention of giving you the most out of your kitchen space. Our favorite appliance is the RA24 24” freestanding dual fuel range, which is sleek in design and equipped with Italian burners and a porcelain cooktop, so they’re super easy to keep clean. Included in the Studio Collection are 24” Range Hoods, 18” Dishwashers, and 24” Microwaves, all created to fit seamlessly into your studio kitchen! Not only are they affordable and fit really well, but these stainless steel appliances also add more value to your home.


Use One Paint Color

We recommend using a single paint color throughout the studio. Too many colors can create an invincible divide in your home, making you and your guests feeling crammed. Dark colors usually do the best when trying to create the illusion of having more space in a room. Using the same black or gray paint throughout the studio makes it feel cohesive and put-together. The pops of color among things like your furniture or kitchen makes those specific areas distinct. 


Make it Your Own!

One thing that makes a living space unique and comfortable is making it something you enjoy! Without creating a comfortable space for yourself to live, you’ll feel more like a visitor and less like a resident. Whether it’s filling the walls up with art, hanging colorful curtains, or altering the lighting, describe your personality to your guests however you’d like! Usually furniture pieces that involve self-expression are the smallest types of objects like pictures or wall art, so you don’t have to worry about them taking up too much physical space.

We hope we were able to give you the resources to feel like you successfully know how to decorate your studio apartment, and that you’re excited to begin transforming your new space! Every week we always look forward to passing on our experiences and expertise to our readers, and we hope you enjoyed reading!
