It seems true that fitting your entire life into one very small rectangular space may be difficult but here are some ideas to make the most of your one room studio apartment in Houston...
The best way to solve a studio apartment's lack of a bedroom is to create your own—or at least the illusion of one.
Use a curtain, shelving unit, or traditional room divider to separate your bed from the rest of the room, creating a private "bedroom-like" place to sleep in peace.
In a Houston, Texas studio apartment, your kitchen is probably going to be one of two things: a row of cabinets against one wall of the living room, or a room so small there’s hardly enough space to open the refrigerator door all the way. Here's some tips to help...
Only buy essential kitchen utensils.
Remember that you don’t really need a tofu press, and twelve different knives aren’t necessary. Don’t let your cabinets fill up with boxes of pasta and cans of vegetables that you’re never going to use.
Only buy food you’ll eat within a few weeks.
Whatever you do, do not let kitchen messes build up. Wash the dishes as you use them, throw out expired food right away and wipe down all your surfaces after cooking.
Create a space where you can hang out with friends, watch TV, and work on your laptop. To do this, think multipurpose. Instead of buying a desk, a TV stand, and a bookshelf, install wall shelving that you can use for all three. Instead of buying a huge, bulky couch, get a couple of smaller armchairs. But before you buy anything, think of how you’re going to live in the space.
