Apartment hunting can involve a lot of settling, and many people decide to rent an apartment that’s a little smaller than what they’d prefer. But there are ways to make even the smallest, most cramped apartment floor plans feel more spacious than they are. Here are just a few:
1. Zone Your Space. If you have a studio with very few rooms (or even only one) it can feel like your whole life is just piled in one place. To keep from getting overwhelmed, try to break up your apartment into separate areas. Create spaces to sleep, eat and hang out within your limited space, and consider separating them with light curtains or decorative dividing screens. Finding clever ways to alter apartment floor plans without altering the apartment itself is a great way to create a comfortable space.
