Decorating an apartment can be a challenge, due to the fact that some management companies prohibit any painting or wallpapering. Most of the time this leaves you with stark white walls which can be drab and depressing! With a little brainstorming and creative ideas, you can turn your small apartment into a decorative roomy and inviting abode.
Selecting Furniture for the room.
Choose smaller well designed furniture, and avoid overfilling the rooms. A small apartment will seem cluttered and smaller than ever if it is wall to wall furniture. Arrange the furniture to keep the rooms as open as possible, and do away with furniture you can live without.
Less is More:
A hodgepodge of wall decor and knickknacks can make a small apartment look and feel cluttered. Downsize your collections, and just add a few of your favorites. Less is truly more when decorating a home.
The Magic of Mirrors:
Mirrors are one way to decorate and make your room more spacious.Mount framed mirrors on opposite walls. They will reflect natural as well as artificial light and make the room appear naturally larger. Decorative mirrors are a great way for adding a touch to bare walls.
Once your small apartment is decorated with attractive wall hangings, strategically placed mirrors, and well place furniture, it will feel comfortable, inviting, and more spacious. Keep in mind that it is not the size of a home that matters. Even larger rentals will not seem as roomy or classy when furniture is poorly arranged and walls are overdone or bare. Use your unique style to transform your small living quarters into a cozy and stylish place you can call home.
