Tips On How To Furnish Your Single Apartment

Living alone is pure freedom and independence. But when choosing a single apartment, many doubts can arise when it comes to furnishing and decorating.

That’s why we brought in this post many valuable tips and ideas for you to have the single apartment of your dreams. Come and see.

How to furnish and decorate a single apartment

Multifunctional furniture

Since single apartments are mostly small, then the first tip is: to invest in multifunctional furniture. And what does that mean? Multifunctional furniture is furniture that has more than one function. That is a sofa that is also a bed, a bench that can be a table, a counter with a built-in closet, and so on.

This type of furniture optimizes space since you don’t need to have one for each function.


The more you can integrate the environments of a bachelor’s apartment, the better. This helps to gain space and make better use of the layout of the rooms, in addition to favoring socialization, as it is possible, for example, to cook while friends are in the living room.

Bespoke colors

Plan well the color palette of the single apartment, especially if it is a studio or loft type, where all environments are integrated. Colors have a strong sensory and psychic effect, helping to relax and unwind, but they can also cause unpleasant sensations, such as anguish, tightness, or discouragement.

Therefore, tip number 1 is to think about the use of colors based on the size and natural light that enters the environment. The lighter the room receives, the greater the possibility of using dark colors, for example. On the other hand, poorly lit and small environments can easily give the feeling of being claustrophobic, if they are decorated in dark colors. In this case, the tip is to use neutral and light colors. The colors also indicate the style of decoration you intend to bring to the environment.

Neutral and soft colors favor classic and sophisticated decorations. Already the use of bright colors refers to a more modern and stripped decor. Light neutral colors mixed with dark colors are ideal for contemporary decorations, such as those in the minimalist style.


Verticalization is another trick to expand and optimize the space of a single apartment. This means betting on the use of shelves, niches, and overhead cabinets to remove furniture and objects from the floor.

In this way, the free space for circulation increases and the decoration becomes more harmonious and functional.

A green touch

Plants are always welcome in any type of decoration, especially in a single apartment. This green touch brings harmony, calm, and relaxation to everyday life, as well as is great anti-stress therapy.

You can bet on the urban jungle wave or just have a vase in the room. The important thing is to feel good in the presence of the green ones.
