6 Big Ideas for Small Spaces - How to Decorate a Small Apartment

If you call an apartment, studio or loft home, you know size matters. Making the most out of your space is a challenge, but there are a range of clever design and styling ideas that will make your apartment feel spacious.

 

1. ELEVATE YOUR FURNITURE FOR A STREAMLINED LOOK

Choose tapered legs on your furniture to give it a lift. This creates a roomier look because bulky furniture placed on the floor makes a small space look even smaller. 

If you’re installing a wall-mounted media bench or similar, consider floating it entirely off the floor. Not only does it take up minimal visual space, but you also create a storage nook underneath.

 

 2. MAXIMISE YOUR LIVING SPACE WITH SMART STORAGE

Smart storage is all about your furniture doing double-duty. We’re talking about things like ottomans with storage, and consoles where things can be stored out of sight while acting as a media bench.

 

3. UP, UP AND AWAY – GO VERTICAL

Make the most of your wall space and use height to your advantage. Tall shelving is quite streamlined by design and doesn’t take up too much space physically or visually. A tall cabinet can be a great storage solution too. A clutter-free space is a roomier space.

 

4. SMALL SPACE GARDENS

Just because you’re in an apartment it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the cheering, lush goodness of indoor plants. Hanging baskets are a great option in empty corners – just use a strong adhesive hook if you’re nervous about taking a drill to your ceiling.

 

5. CREATE ZONES IN YOUR OPEN PLAN

Apartment dwellers are veterans when it comes to creating zones in open-plan spaces. Bookshelves are a dream solution and have long been moonlighting as screens to divide rooms. The open sections of shelving means there is still plenty of light getting through, and the shelves draw your eye in and give the room depth.

 

6. CREATIVE SOLUTIONS FOR APARTMENT ART

You have plenty of options when it comes to hanging art in your apartment. A favourite design trick is to stack art vertically, which lengthens the appearance of the wall. Another creative option is to use thin frames with large borders, which prevents a small wall from looking too cluttered.
