Living in snug quarters has its challenges, I can speak to that with authority – I reside in a 500 square-feet apartment. But to do it comfortably there are certain things we can't do without. The trick is to organize, organize and organize. There must be a place to conceal everything and you must own pieces of furniture and accessories that have dual functionality. For those compact dwellers my advice to you is to edit down your belongings and keep only what's most essential. But I know the hardest test of all is trying to fit all that you need (and want) without compromising style or comfort. These outstanding finds will help you conquer this battle. BTW, remember to use furniture proportional to your space, don't cram it in just because.
The all-in-one concept from Matroshka (below) is a perfect ticket for a studio apartment as it maximizes storage without compromising your needs.
There's never too much storage when living small. These two bed options, the Calligaris Swami Bed and the Muir Headboard Accessory, will definitely help you solve the problem. My bed is similar to the one above and it's a great solution.
No one says you can't have fun. You can also customize your storage pieces like the one above designed by Ellen Seegers from BeeldenBouwers.
