Living in a tiny apartment is tough, especially when your decor choices are limited by landlord laws and rental rules. And just because your home looks like a box that doesn’t mean you have to neglect the decor. There are so many decorating ideas on the Internet that will make your home look bigger, brighter and airier.
And unless you are a proud owner of a big country house or penthouse, or you just enjoy living in a clutter, it’s time to make some changes and learn how to decorate your apartment. Let these ideas, trick and tips that I gathered for you inspire you to make the space you were dreaming of.
When decorating, most homeowners concentrate too much on what can be easily seen, making space look cluttered and smaller. It is very important to use the height of the ceiling if you want to maximize the proportions and elongate the space. You can do that by installing shelves or other storage solutions right to the ceiling or by refreshing the room with soft sheer curtains that go from the ceiling to the floor.
Choose the Furniture Wisely
Your small space needs smaller scale pieces and open storage units, so I advise you to go for minimal furniture. The multi-function designs are always a great choice for this type of spaces. If you want to have a larger scale furniture, such as a triple seater sofa, that’s fine, but make sure that you have enough space to move around it.
Get Smart about Storage
In order to make your space look functional and clean, you need to maximize your space by adding extra storage. As I said before, you need to purchase multi-functional and space-saving furniture, like ottomans, tables with drawers, folding chairs, etc. Sofas that transform into beds are ideal for homes that don’t have bedrooms. Think about using the space under the bed, cabinets, drawers, etc.
Play with Colours and Prints
The truth is that you can easily make your tiny space appear bigger with mirror, but this trick can date your space really quickly. So, you’d better play with colors and prints. When mixing and matching prints and colors, it is important to keep within same color palette. Choose small in scale prints as they calm the eyes. If you want to add some dark colors in your home decor, keep it lower to the ground.
