You may be wondering exactly what to do to make your apartment or home. There are certain elements of design that need to be present to achieve the modernized look you are going for. Modern apartment design ideas consist of sharp and clean lines, certain fabrics or materials for furniture and of course the area being organized. The following design tips will help you to modernize your space efficiently.

Clean: With modern apartment design the area is very clean and organized. There is no need for clutter and everything will have a soothing, calming and relaxing feel. Your apartment or home is your castle and should reflect as such. There will be a clean look but should also be kept clean and tidy. Nothing is worse than having great accessories and pieces to make up the modern apartment but it is unkempt and untidy.

Spacious: Studio apartments even have the ability to look spacious, when laid out in the right manner. Avoid excessively large furniture in small spaces that will crowd the apartment and make it appear smaller than it actually is. Minimal furniture can be placed in rooms to make the room appear more spacious. Also furniture can be placed against walls and not in the middle of the room. These apartments are all about have space to walk around and also to look at everything that is on display. If the room is laid out well, even the most minute pieces and details will be seen and appreciated by guests.

Glass: Glass is one thing that is commonly found. While traditionalists may prefer wood coffee tables and other pieces, a modern apartment will have glass pieces. Glass makes the apparent feel clean and bright. The sunlight reflecting off of or shining through the glass of various objects gives the modern apartment an aesthetic appeal. Colored glass can also be used to match certain color schemes throughout the room. The colored glass can be in contrast to the colors or match it and still appear modern and up-to-date.

45 Cool Tiny Apartment Design Ideas With Bed Disappears To Try Asap

When you live in an apartment, it’s important to manage your space well. Beds have a large footprint, so it makes sense to focus on them when managing your space. There are many types of beds that give you extra space and make your apartment more functional.

Gaining Privacy

If you live in a studio apartment or share a bedroom with roommates, you don’t have a lot of privacy, and people are always sitting on your bed. With roommates, it can be hard to coordinate sleep schedules, and often times your roommate keeps you up. And in any small space, light from electronic gadgets and noises from the building can create a less than ideal sleeping environment.

Freeing up Space

Beds take up a lot of floorspace. We only sleep in them for part of the day, so most of the time the space that the bed occupies is wasted. Luckily, you can squeeze additional use out of that space with storage beds. Storage beds have built-in storage. They can have drawers under the bed, shelving built into the headboard, or both. This is great because they take what is usually dead space and make it usable.

Even More Space

Even with storage beds, much of the space that your bed occupies will be wasted. Luckily there are styles that reduce your bed’s footprint significantly. Loft beds are like bunk beds, only without the bottom bunk. They are raised high enough for you to fit other furniture under them. Loft beds are great for saving space, and they add a unique style to your room. With lofts, the footprint of your bed is basically reduced to zero because the area can still be put to other uses.

When first starting an apartment garden, there are several factors you must take into consideration.

1) Do not pick well shaded areas – This should be done for obvious reasons. As any gardener should know, plants need plenty of sunlight in order to grow to their maximum potential. Without the proper sunlight, the photosynthesis process will not happen.

2) Do your research on what type of seeds to plant – You need to know which type of plants will grow successfully in your climate zone and which ones will not. Most vegetables have different growth rates, depending on the time you have for your garden, you should definitely plan which seeds to plant.

3) Examine the soil content-If you plan on potted plants in your apartment, then buy the proper potting soil. When growing plants outside of your apartment, examine the soil to see if it is suitable for proper plant growth. If not, then just buy the necessary potting soil and do the necessary work to replace the old soil with the new. Of course, check the apartment rules first, about planting outside of your apartment.

4) The proper planting procedures-Before starting the planting process the proper planting supplies need to be obtained. These include, but are not limited to, seeds, shovel, bucket, and fertilizer. The soil is the single most important aspect to a successful apartment garden. Remove all debris throughout the area to be soiled. This can be done with a rake.

42 Brilliant Dorm Room Decor Ideas With Small Space Hacks

When I helped my daughter move into her first college dorm room,
I wasn’t prepared for how tiny her room would be! Floor space
was definitely scarce, and it was obvious she would have to come
up with some creative storage solutions.

Decorating a dorm room can be tricky, because obviously your
roommate will want to have a say in how the room is decorated.
Whether you are moving into a dorm room for the first time or
you are looking to re-decorate your existing dorm room, hopefully
these decorating tips will give you and your roommate some
creative ideas to give your dorm room a great new look that you
both will love.

Vacuum sealed space bags are great for transporting clothing to
college. You can purchase these inexpensively at Walmart or on
eBay. You won’t believe how much you can get into these bags. I
don’t recommend the extra large bags, because they are quite
heavy when full and difficult to carry. These bags can be stored
under a bed or stacked in the closet.

Small storage ottomans or benches can provide seating and storage
areas, and are easy to move around and fit into small spaces.
They are great for storing blankets, pillows, hats, gloves, and a
great place to stow away book bags or back packs.


Charming Living Room Design Ideas For Small Apartment 43

45 Charming Living Room Design Ideas For Small Apartment

Living in a studio apartment may limit you physically, but it doesn’t have to cramp your imagination. What you can or cannot do with your living room design is entirely in your hands. In fact, if you want to turn your living room into beach front property, that is entirely possible.

If you already have an aquarium, why not take advantage of that and turn it into a theme? A potted palm tree is surprisingly affordable and looks great inside. If you lay down a large section of artificial turf, the effect of the tree is enhanced ten-fold. A huge backdrop in the form of a beach painting will turn your studio apartment into a tropical hideaway. By the way, you don’t have to spend a thousand dollars at an art store for the painting. A search of the local thrift stores will usually turn up wonderful paintings, photos or prints for no more than twenty dollars. If you want to go all out on this beach theme, you may add a child’s tiny wading pool. Fill it a quarter-full with water and put play sand in the middle for a sandbar. Place a colorful pail of sand on top for an added touch.

One of the great things about living room design in a studio apartment is that if you can paint the apartment or wallpaper it in one day. If you are lucky enough to have hardwood floors, why not go for the Stockholm look? Paint three of the walls and the ceiling eggshell white. Apply a seal brown, or taupe-pattern of wallpaper to the fourth wall. Add curtains with a design similar to that of the wallpaper. A circular straw matt in the middle of the floor, and set off by a large floor vase of dried flowers will complete the look. By the way, this is an excellent design to use with a room divider.

In most cases, simple elegance is what gives an apartment studio a feeling of both charm and space. You can paint your central room old lace, and lay down a white sheepskin throw rug. A small, stately dining room set works well. You don’t have to buy a Hans Wegner set. A simple, well-polished oak table with matching chairs works just fine, especially if you top it with tall, white candles. A clock with Roman numerals works great in this setting, as does a stand with wildflowers.
