Studio apartments that are small in size but huge on style are found in most urban areas. Indeed, urbanites choose studio apartments for lower rents. The tinier the apartment, the lower the rent. Therefore, urbanites can live close to amenities on a small budget.
In fact, the small studio apartments represent freedom for their tenants. They’re free from long commutes. They have more time to spend exploring the city. In fact, they have more free time in general. They hardly need to spend their time cleaning.
Do they sacrifice style? Absolutely not! Most certainly, small doesn’t equal shabby in a modern studio apartment.
There are two main ways to arrange a studio apartment. Some tenants choose to keep the space wide open. This gives an airy, spacious feel. On the other hand, other tenants visually divide up the space. This gives a cozy, warm feel. Either way is right, it’s a matter of personal choice.

Finally, design with storage in mind. Find clever, creative solutions. Waste no space, don’t allow clutter.
This clean feeling is what gives style to modern studio apartments.
