It can teach you to keep your space tidy, as well as prioritize something functional instead of something that’s just pretty.

What you should keep in mind when creating a homey studio apartment is to make sure that the areas are defined. You can do this by either putting up a divider like a bookshelf or a console table, or use an area rug to visually break up the spaces. Another great trick by some interior designers is to make use of varying heights, so your space do not look too crowded.
If you have the funds, especially if you want to invest in your space and plan to sell it later on, you may also want to look into working with an interior designer and custom-fitting your unit to certain specifications.
