Now that you are out on your own, whether in your first apartment after college or moving into your own studio after sharing with roommates, you will have to decide how you want to decorate your new bachelor pad. Studio apartments are, by their very nature, small and lacking ample storage. For bachelors, that can translate into piles in a mess and hubcaps used as car metal wall art. To get a better start on decorating your bachelor pad, try some of the easy tips below.
In a studio apartment, the most beneficial furniture pieces you can own are those with multiple purposes. For example, a sofa that is also a bed or an ottoman that also doubles as storage for blankets and linens, are ideal because they provide two functions. While you may not want to sleep on a sofa bed every night, having an extra spot for guests to sleep is ideal. Multi-purpose furniture tends to be a bit more expensive than other pieces, but in a studio you do not need to buy many pieces. What you save from not having to buy in quantity, you can put toward purchasing the perfect pieces of furniture.

Attic renovations are not in a lot of people’s favorites lists. The unusual angles make it really hard for one to come up with furniture ideas that would fit in weird places and sometimes maintenance can raise more problems than in a usual apartment.
Every single room in this chic apartment amazes due to its great design and modern furniture approaches. Even though the space (240 sqm) is not as large as we got you used to here on Freshome, the two bedrooms, living room, two bathrooms and kitchen are more than enough for a great living.
