Floor-to-ceiling shelves

Dedicate a space in your studio condo unit for storing all of your belongings. It becomes easier to organize all of your favorite home items when you have a dedicated space for them. If your ceiling is particularly high, invest in a sturdy stepping stool to make the most of your new shelves.

A sofa bed

There are many comfortable choices on the market now, and having this convertible bed allows you to turn your studio from a homey space for entertainment to a comfortable and private bedroom with little adjustment. If you find sofa beds a bit uncomfortable, go for a very good single bed. It sort of acts like a sofa bed but with better lumbar support.

This saves you money on buying a dryer, and because these clotheslines are collapsible, your bathroom stays clean and uncluttered for most of the week.


You can use simple dividers like curtains to give your home more dimension and privacy. When you have guests over, tuck your personal items like your mattress or wardrobe behind your divider just as you would a separate bedroom.

Collapsible Storage

Make use of your space in a fun and smart way.

If you really want a dining table in your unit but you have no more space or find it too bulky, why not settle for a foldable dining table. A very clever idea for this is to attach a sturdy painting to the wall, add hinges to the bottom of the painting and let it down once you need it.

Loft beds

Washer Dryer Combo

Open bottomed furniture

Open bottomed furniture

A great tip for making a small space look bigger is to have open-bottomed furniture. By open-bottomed, we mean furniture which is elevated from the floor small and have small stands.

It’s easier to clean as well because your vacuum cleaner won’t get stuck underneath.

Mirror wall

An almost fool-proof way of making a compact space look bigger is to install a mirror wall. Mirrors reflect parts of the room which makes the space look bigger. When looking at it, you will see a reflection of the unit instead of another wall. It won’t make the space bigger but it would certainly feel like it.
