Often, when we decide to redecorate an apartment, we spend a lot of time trying to decide how to use the space correctly, which colors to choose, and what furniture to buy. And it becomes even harder if you have a small apartment that you want to make cozy and beautiful.
Today, Bright Side will tell you about some interesting tricks to decorate a small apartment.
1. Choosing light furniture
When choosing furniture for a small apartment, make sure it looks light. It should be transparent, with thin legs.
2. Light colors
No matter how much you love bright colors, if you live in a small apartment, choose lighter colors. The most appropriate ones are blue, light green, light pink, creme, and light grey.
3. Don’t buy small furniture.
One of the most popular mistakes people make when decorating a small space is choosing small furniture. It actually has the opposite effect — it makes you feel as if you live in a dollhouse. Add several massive pieces to keep a balance.
4. Use the right light.
In order to light the room correctly, don’t buy huge chandeliers. Choose small lights on the perimeter so that if you don’t have a high ceiling, it won’t feel like it’s pressing down on you.
5. Multifunctional furniture
Here is another tip about furniture: it’s best when the same piece of furniture has several purposes. For example, a bed can also be a shelf and a couch.
6. No borders
Try not to separate the floor in other rooms. If you have a single floor, it will make the space look bigger.
7. Use corners.
Few people use corners even though it’s really convenient. So, if you place some storage systems in corners, you can hide a lot of things there.
8. Use the space correctly.
In order to make the ceiling visually higher, get high cabinets or shelves. In order for them not to look too big, they should be of light colors.
9. Use very little decor.
A high number of accessories that are useless will make a small space look even smaller. You should put away photos, statues, vases, and souvenirs. Keep some of the decorations in beautiful containers.
10. You don’t need too many rugs.
If you love rugs, you should choose ones that don’t have too many colors on them — otherwise, they’ll look ridiculous in a small apartment.
