Having an attractive interior to your home does not always require the help of a professional. However, when dealing with small spaces, such as a small apartment, styling can be a challenge. Small spaces can make a room look cluttered even without much furniture, and the wrong color choices can even make the space feel cramped.
If you’re living in a small space, you don’t have to feel cluttered in your own home or assume there is no cute way to decorate your area. Instead, use one of these five interior design tips for small apartments to help you maximize space and create comfortable, beautiful home.
- Stick with lighter colors.
Darker colors will make a room look small, so it’s very important that you use a lighter color scheme to enhance the size of your apartment. Stick with neutral or light colored walls to make them appear bigger. You should also use light colored furniture throughout your home too. Consider whites, grays, or neutral colors for items like couches, chairs, rugs, curtains and any other larger item you may have in your home.
- Put curtains to the ceiling.
You can greatly make your apartment seem bigger by adding curtains all the way to the ceiling instead of at the top of the window. Curtains draw the eye up, and if your curtains go to the ceiling, it will make your apartment look much larger than it really is. Be sure to buy curtains that will reach from the floor to the ceiling in your apartment, and try to opt for those that are lighter in color. This will make your apartment seem taller, which will make it feel less cramped.
- Opt for hardwood when possible.
Hardwood floors can make your apartment seem bigger. Even darker colors such as beautiful Brazilian cherry flooring can make a small apartment seem larger by running the hardwood vertically. This will trick the eye into thinking that the apartment is much longer than it really is, especially down hallways. If you are installing the hardwood, be sure to install it vertically instead of horizontally for a maximum spacious effect.
- Choose clear when possible.
When decorating your home, be sure to choose clear items when possible. For example, having a glass kitchen table and glass end tables will make your apartment look larger because you can see through them. You can also choose clear décor, such as clear vases and light fixtures or even mirrored picture frames too. If you are adding shelves, a clear plexiglass shelf can make your home look much bigger too than some dark, boxy shelving unit.
- Use shelves.
Shelving units can be a lifesaver for small apartments because they provide both décor and storage. Instead of cluttering closets or cabinets, or instead of using large, boxy furniture, open shelving units provide a cute, attractive, and space-maximizing way to store your items. You can place your shelves in an organized fashion, or you can zig zag them throughout your walls. Just remember to keep the shelving units void of clutter, and you will see a great space improvement throughout your home.

If you’re desperate to update your master bedroom but don’t exactly have the budget to achieve your dream new look, there are lots of ways in which you can give the room a face lift without breaking the bank.
With a bit of insider know-how and a few careful tips, you can easily update your master bedroom on a budget. Here are a few tips to get you inspired!
Work with what you already have
Repurposing items that you already have to give them a new lease of life can provide you with the perfect alternative to buying a load of new stuff. Get creative and look to the internet for inspiration regarding repurposing household items and you’ll be surprised about how effective it can be! Giving items you already have, such as wardrobes, a makeover with a coat of paint can be really useful for transforming them instead of replacing them. You could even just change the knobs!
Why not try doing it yourself?
Instead of hiring professionals to do the work for you, such as painting the walls or installing new carpet, you can save an absolute fortune if you do it yourself. There are even DIY tutorials online which give you a step-by-step guide, so it’s never been easier.
Make changes to the bed
The bed is the focal point of any bedroom, especially the master bedroom. Therefore updating this aspect of the room can be really useful in terms of giving the whole room a new lease of life. Get a bright new duvet cover and invest in new throws, cushions and pillows. You could even DIY your own headboard too.
Consider a rearrange of the layout
Changing the layout of the room can be the perfect way to alter the atmosphere and update the feel of the room. Give it a go; change the position of big items like the bed and wardrobes and see how the difference impacts the whole space. Keep the room’s natural light source in mind when changing things as you won’t want to impact and compromise this too much as this will have a negative effect on the room.
Create a new focal point
Instead of transforming the whole room, why not just transform certain aspects of it? For example, creating a new accent wall or feature corner can completely change the room’s dynamics. Go bold and brave with a pop of colour on a wall, paint a piece of furniture a statement colour or invest in new curtains to change the room’s natural light.
Look for thrift store finds
Avoiding stores that you usually go in or stores that seem to have all the stuff you love in but with a price tag you’re certainly not a fan of in favour of going to cheaper stores is a great idea. Head to charity shops; car boot sales and discount stores for some surprisingly good finds. Shopping online can be great too; you can even get curtains online at sites like www.onlinecurtainfabrics.com.
