How to Stage Your Studio Apartment

staging your studio apartment

Enticing people to purchase a small living space can be difficult, but remember it’s not small; it’s intimate! There are ways to make a studio apartment appeal to buyers, especially if the space is properly staged. Many people seeking to buy a home in a city set their sights on studios because they’re reasonably priced. This includes young, first-time buyers, empty-nesters, and older people who want to downsize.

Here are a few tips on staging your studio apartment space for a successful and quick sale!


Step one of any home staging journey is removing unnecessary junk, especially in a studio apartment where space is naturally limited. Go through your belongings and figure out what you want to keep and what you want to get rid of. The goal is to make floors clear of items and closets, and storage space as roomy as possible. Then, consider putting the stuff you want to keep in a storage unit.

Section Off Your Space

To appeal to various potential buyers, you need to section your space into designated areas for specific tasks. A space for sleeping, a TV area, and a spot for working should all be clearly laid out. You can divide sections off with bookshelves, room dividers, curtains, furniture, or whatever is functional and aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

Light Up the Room

If your studio space is lucky enough to have large windows with a view, use this to your advantage! Open blinds and curtains and let the natural light shine through to enhance the visual feel of your apartment. Be sure to turn overhead lights on during showings and if you think your space requires more light, add some decorative floor lamps.
