In the present scenario, where the real estate prices are constantly rising, it is not always possible to buy a large home. Hence, most people have to adjust and compromise on the space available at a small apartment. However, with proper decorating tips, you can make your small apartment seem larger.
Use light colours:
Go light on everything you use. From choosing the colour on the walls to choosing the curtains, the furniture and even the cushions and bed covers – use only lighter shades. The lighter is the shade, the larger it will appear.
Use multipurpose furniture:
It is not just the decoration of the room that you have to be careful about, but also the utility of the space and the articles that you use and have kept inside, that needs to be taken care of. In that case, using multipurpose furniture is a great idea. Use the chest of drawers as a table top or a folding sofa that can be turned into a bed, to make use of the space.
Use a mirror:
This is an amazing way to make the room look larger. Hang a mirror on the wall that receives maximum light and this will reflect the light, making the room larger.
Corners are very useful. You must not block them by putting a sofa or a bed or even a cupboard there. Stack a bean-bag and a reading lamp and it can be turned into a reading corner.
Make bigger windows:
This is a great way of faking the space. The larger or bigger windows give you an impression that the space is large. However, it reality it is otherwise. Not just the windows, but be careful about the placement of the curtains as well. If you hang them a few inches below the ceiling and not from right above the windows, it will give the room a larger appearance.
Storage plays a very important role in small apartments. You should carefully pickup storage systems that can be hanged behind the doors, under the bed or even in front of your eyes, without making the clutter look clumsy. Nowadays, vertical storage is very much in trend. You can make vertical storage spaces right around the doors and utilize this place in storing your books and crockery and other such elements.
Every space is unique in its own way and every individual has unique choices and preferences. Decorate your home as you like, just follow these principles for a better appearance.
