What studio apartments may lack in square footage, they more than make up for in efficiency and creativity. Studio apartment decoration is at its best when it embraces a minimalist mindset and allows you to focus on what’s important, rather than feeling cramped. Fortunately, there are some amazing ways to arrange furniture in a studio apartment to live large every day.

These are the top three studio apartment furniture ideas to make your NYC loft more spacious, accommodating, and timelessly beautiful.

1. Use an Elegant Bookshelf as a Room Divider

Open space layouts provide a unique and refreshing sense of freedom. But sometimes, a little structure can help keep you organized and offer an essential element of privacy. Try utilizing a bookshelf as a room divider to block off some space for your bedroom or home office. This is also an ideal place to display your favorite literary collections and pieces of artwork.

2. Choose Modern Pieces with Hidden Storage

When decorating a studio apartment, you may find that you don’t have room for stand-alone pieces that have just a single function. Fortunately, modern furniture design embraces double-duty furniture that incorporates useful storage underneath beds, coffee tables, benches, and more. Hidden storage will quickly become your new best friend when you’re living in a luxury loft in New York City.

3. Rethink the Size of Your Seating

Large seating areas tend to overwhelm a studio apartment, so consider using smaller and more sophisticated versions of essential furniture pieces. This may mean decorating your space with a loveseat instead of a sofa, with backless barstools instead of full-backed chairs, and a multi-functional bench instead of recliner-style seating.
