How to live in a studio apartment: tips and tricks 

Studio apartments offer a comfortable and affordable solution to living in the middle of a large city or expensive area. The tiny apartments offer many benefits, such as affordability, easy cleaning, and less maintenance involved.  

However, it can also get cluttered, and the small size can get frustrating. Luckily, there are a few tips and tricks to make the most of living in a studio apartment, giving you the space you need without the extra cost.  

Take advantage of bed storage options 

There are several ways to take advantage of the space available around your bed. One example is an ottoman bed that offers hidden storage for linen and bedding. Other options include platform beds with built-in storage, over-the-head shelf storage, a storage headboard and using a footboard for a TV stand. 

Get a room divider with storage 

Room dividers are an effective way to create the illusion of separate rooms in a studio apartment. While there are several options, investing in a room divider that doubles up as storage is smart. For example, repurpose an old bookshelf or get a divider with built-in storage. 

Create the illusion of more space 

There are a few things that you can do to create the illusion of space in your studio apartment. For example, you can paint your walls a light colour to make the room feel larger. You can also hang mirrors on opposite windows or on opposite walls to create the illusion of space. 

Take advantage of corners 

It’s easy to overlook the corners of the apartment as a possible storage space. Consider adding shelves to the corner to keep books, place a small desk in the tiny space, or create a makeshift closet! 

Declutter regularly 

Creating a decluttering schedule and regularly removing unnecessary items will give you more space to live comfortably and provide a space of peace and relaxation. As a bonus, regular decluttering prevents pests, reduces dust and offers an improved lifestyle and well-being! 

Do you need a safe and secure space to keep your extra household belongings? Storage World has a storage unit for you, whether you’re relocating from a larger home in the suburbs or you need somewhere to store seasonal items that take up too much space.

A Quick and Easy Process

Quick and easy to reserve and simple sign up process when I arrived. I had under estimated my load size and needed more space which the guys on site quickly arranged for me. Very helpful and friendly staff. A recommended company

Same Day Move In

Fantastic experience. Needed storage quickly and the staff were on hand to help get everything sorted as fast as possible – was in the same day. They even helped to make sure I got the right size unit so I didn’t over pay – they could have sold me a far bigger one but wanted to make sure I got the best deal and was happy – that doesn’t happen very often! Well Done!

Extremely Helpful Staff

Extremely helpful staff, talked me through everything, gave me a tour of the facility, the sign up process was very straight forward, and most important excellent value for money.

Trolleys and Good Lighting

Great storage with lots of trolleys and good lighting. Lots of parking bays so it is easy to park close to the storage unit entrance. A friendly and helpful team (Anthony and Nick) that get back to you quickly by email or phone.

Business Self Storage

Can’t praise the guys enough, Tricia initially found me a unit over year ago and patiently kept me up to date on availability as I was unable to move my business as quickly as I’d hoped. All the staff are friendly and helpful. A safe and clean place to work.
