Making the most of a studio apartment

This being my first studio apartment, I looked at blogs and design sites for ideas on how to maximize my space. I didn’t want the feeling of living in my bedroom, so I had to arrange furniture to best fit the space.

Before moving in, I measured all of my furniture pieces and every corner of the new apartment. Then I spent one Saturday afternoon with a large roll of masking tape to figure out where I should put my furniture. This trick worked really well and allowed me to visualize everything without having to physically drag a bed or a couch around the apartment.

Here’s what it looked like with tape:

And initial stages with furniture:
