Living in a small apartment can create a real decorating challenge. You hardly have enough storage space, and making the rooms look spacious is a difficult task. Even if you have a tiny apartment, you can make it appear twice as large with a few easy tricks. In this article, you will find some simple ideas for making your small apartment look bright and spacious.
A few well-placed accessories add vibrant color When decorating small rooms, you should always keep clutter to a minimum. Display only a few brightly colored accents and accessories to add depth and interest. In the living room, a single large vase filled with fresh flowers, a large candle and a single print or painting on one wall are all you need to add color while keeping the area open and spacious. Apartment kitchens can be so tiny that only one person can be in the room at a time. Keep counters cleaned off by placing small appliances, bread, chips, dishes and other items away in cabinets or the pantry if one is available.
Furnish the rooms sparingly In a small apartment, all that is needed in the living room is a sofa, chair and coffee table. You may want to place a small bookshelf in a corner to hold books, and magazines with small lamp on top. Keep furnishings against the wall so that the floor space in the center of the room is wide open and easy to walk through. A brightly colored accent rug in this area adds texture and additional color. The bedroom may be small as well; furnish it with a twin or full sized bed, a nightstand and chest of drawers. Keep clutter in this room to a minimum as well, and add color with large wall hangings.
