I rearranged my apartment. And guys, seriously, it’s really great. Like maybe even life-changing great! My studio feels so much brighter and more spacious now.
I swung my bookshelf around 90 degrees to sit flat against the wall that my bed used to be on. I rotated by bed too and moved it to the adjacent wall–which gave me plenty of room for a night stand on one side and my little desk in the corner.
The rearrange gave me much more “bedroom” space, but took quite a bit of floor space from my “living room.” But that’s ok with me, its so much easier to make my bed–and get in and out of it now! I moved the small white coffee table to the side of the love seat since there’s not a ton of floor space in front. My dining area and entry way arrangements stayed the same. The only change I made was moving the rug from the living area to the dining area. Since my love seat no longer sections off the dining area, the rug provides a nice visual division. And now here’s the awkward spot. I’m pretty sure that no matter how I arrange my studio there will ALWAYS be an awkward corner. It looks like I just slapped this bookshelf here then threw my wrapping paper and yoga mats in the corner–and well, that’s what I did. It needs some work.
I’m working on putting together floor plans of my arrangement and some more studio living tips. Check back soon for those!
