6 Easy Tips  -  How To Deal With Living In A Tiny Nyc Studio Apartment

Living in a studio apartment in the Big Apple means you have the world at your feet, but it also means that space is at a premium. If you are relocating and looking at apartments in neighborhoods like the Upper Westside, you might even wonder how it is possible to squeeze everything you need into a minuscule studio or micro-studio. With a few organizing tips and learning how to maximize the space you have, you might just be surprised at how well you can make use of the limited space available when renting a studio.

1) First tips to keep in mind is the importance of organization. By being as organized as possible, you will find you are able to do far more with the limited amount of space available in your studio apartment. When possible, always try to make use of furniture and other items that serve double-duty. For instance, you could incorporate a storage bench into your studio that not only provides valuable storage space, but also acts as a seating area.

2) Organizing items vertically is also a great way to maximize the amount of space you have available in a studio. One way to do this is to incorporate tall shelves, rather than long horizontal shelves. Try mounting your television on the wall to free up valuable floor space.

3) Try to make the most of the closet space you have available through the use of closet organizers. Well-designed closet organizers help you to make the most of vertical space in your closet. Air-vacuum sealed bags are also a great way to condense larger items that may only be used seasonally into a more compact space. Remember, every square inch is important. With the use of the right closet organizers, it will be possible to fit far more in your closet.

4) Make sure that every available inch of space is utilized for a purpose. This is why many people consider purchasing a Murphy Bed for their studio apartments. A Murphy Bed allows you to have a comfortable resting area, but conveniently folds up out of the way during the day.

5) Starting getting rid of as much clutter as possible. Keep only items that are absolutely essential or which truly mean something to you. Cull everything else.

6) When decorating your studio, use lighter colors. This is a great way to make the apartment appear far brighter and more spacious. Also, remember that less is definitely more. Make wise furniture selections by choosing smaller furniture that will take up less space and also help your apartment appear larger.

Whether you are searching for a studio in Hells Kitchen or anywhere else in Manhattan, employing strategic organization and decorating techniques can help you to make the most of even the smallest studio apartment.
