Help me furnish and decorate my new small studio apartment.
My new apartment is a small (22.5 m²~ 240 square feet) studio apartment. Pictures and floorplan here.
The living area is approximately 260cm by 430cm. The fixed cabinets are both 60cm wide and the gap between them is 140cm wide.
What I need is a decent sized bed, preferably at least 120cm wide (I'm not picky; I could sleep on a sofa bed IF it's good enough), a good desk and some chairs for the kitchen table. What I would also want is enough room to occasionally seat about 4 people in comfort and possibly for watching movies from the computer screen. The table could also fit just enough chairs to also seat 4. Storage-wise I should be good with the existing storage with the exception of a bookcase and possibly some desk drawers. If there was enough room and a place to hide away a gaming table that is 120x180cm and is disassembled into a package measuring 120x60 plus some legs, it would be perfect, but that is not really necessary.
And since the apartment is new and shiny, I'd like the furniture to also at least not be ugly so something that fits the apartment would be nice.
My budget is basically big enough for Ikea stuff or any alternative at a similar price point. (Note that I am in Finland). I already have some Anssi bar stools
suitable for the table and an black Expedit bookcase.
The rest of my old furniture is either something I'm looking to replace or is just too clunky for this place and I'm not married to the bookcase either.
Any tips, tricks or input are appreciated. How would you decorate this place given these requirement or without them?
