Create separate zones for your daily activities like relaxing, eating, and sleeping. These zones specified for a particular task can make the space feel larger. A room with the capacity to provide space for various tasks can be organized using curtained bed or a smartly placed table and chair.
Utilize vertical and hidden space
In a small apartment the vertical and hidden spaces can help organize the daily use items. Tall display storage can be used for storing books, collectibles, and decorative items. Shelving throughout the apartment can give it a spacious look. Hidden storage under beds, vertical storage used in modular kitchens can maximize your storage capacity. Add shelves in your closet to get the most of your closet space.
One of the most effective way to utilize the space in your apartment is by getting multi-functional furniture. These not only look elegant but also give your home a rich look. For instance, a convertible sofa that can be transformed into a bed when required, or you can also get a sofa bunk bed that you can install in your kids room. A fold down table can be used as a work surface. You can also get collapsible chairs that can also be used as wall art.
Reduce unnecessary things or the clutter. Discard the things you think are no longer needed and increase the open space. There is no point in keeping your storage full of things you don't use and are occupying space without any reason. Reducing the unwanted clutter reduces stress and gives you a clear idea of how the extra space can be used.
Use Light Colors
To give your apartment a larger and spacious look, allow light to enter as much as possible. Using the right color on your wall can create an illusion of ample space. The best choice is to use light colors, that helps in reflecting light to every corner. Light colors such as white, light blues, and cream can give the impression that the walls are further away. The light reflected by these colors makes the room look wide. Also use a unifying color throughout the apartment or your home or if you wish to use the variations of the same color.
Bring Less but Eye-Catching Furniture
Having a small space doesn't mean it can stop you from decorating your space. The best part of a small space is you don't need a lot of furniture. You can invest in some new furniture or arrange the ones you already have in a special and eye-catching manner. Decide a focal point of the room you want to transform, and keeping that focal point in your mind as the center arrange your furniture and other decorative items.
