20 Easy Interior Design Ideas for Small Apartments
Small apartments deserve the respect that any other interior design project would warrant,
but many individuals don’t know where to begin the process. There are many different ways to go about
improving upon the interior of your small apartment, but only a few of them are going
to feel “perfect”. Take it from someone who owns a small apartment
themselves – there is a lot of stuff you can do! #1. Drapes! When you add drapes to your rooms, make
sure that they match the colors of the walls. This will allow a feeling of continuity to
take place, letting the space feel larger. You should always be looking to match your
color schemes, as it’s one of the more typical things to be considered in within interior
design. #2. Natural light. If you have windows, make
sure you’re making ample use of the natural light present in your home. The more natural light you can see, the bigger
things will appear. Natural light is also cheap, and doesn’t
cost a thing! If you have the right windows in place, you
can use as much natural light as you’d like. #3. Sofas and Armchairs – When it comes to
your sofas and armchairs, you’d be better off with the raised variety. When they don’t touch the ground, it creates
a bigger sense of space. The space underneath the furniture might not
seem all too important right away, but once you see it all come together, it’s a wonderful
feeling. The furniture that you implement within your
small apartment is going to be responsible for a good chunk of how spacious your apartment
feels. #4. Clean your clutter! Clutter can be a big problem, especially
when it comes to smaller apartments. When you keep things clean, the clutter won’t
make you feel closed in. Clutter can be unhealthy in certain ways as
well, so ridding your property of it quickly is a useful process. #5. Neutral colors – When you’re looking
into the palette portion, try and pick colors that are going to come off as being neutral. Your space will not only appear larger, but
clean and well-lit as well! Beige, gray and tons of other colors could
be deemed perfect. #6. Fabrics/Rug selections – When you’re
looking at these items, make sure that they are smaller prints; try and strive for plain/unified
colors as well. When you can match colors correctly, a room
will be much more appealing visually. #7. Multi-functional furniture – This is a
given, as anybody with a small living space will tell you that multi-functional is a big
deal. When you can sleep on your bed, but also store
hundreds of pieces of clothing underneath it, you’re going to be better off in regards
to your space usage. #8. Mirrors! Mirrors are a given, as they reflect the
rest of your apartment and give it a larger feeling. This is important, as it’s a mind trick
of sorts; when you have mirrors in your home, you can’t just stick hundreds of them up. You need to place them strategically, so that
your entire apartment is benefiting from the light being reflected. #9. Large pieces of furniture? They say that smaller pieces are always
going to be your best bet, but larger pieces of furniture can actually turn out to be quite
beneficial. When you implement a relatively large piece,
it can co-operate with the rest of your apartment perfectly; giving it a spacious feeling. Test it out for yourself and see what kind
of results you’ll be working with! #10. Small accessories – When it comes to the
accessories you’ll have placed throughout your home, you’ll want to keep them smaller than
usual. If you have a vase or table that’s incredibly
large, it could take away from the space available in the apartment itself. Take a risk and work with small accessories,
even if it’s something you’re not used to, you may fall in love with the results. Small scale accessories turn into larger than
life interior designs. #11. Group together your art pieces – if you
have a lot of art to hang on your walls, try and group them together. When you keep them spaced out, you may feel
like it’s allowing your home to appear larger, but it’s the opposite. You see a lot more of the wall, and if it
isn’t matching in regards to color (alongside the rest of your drapes and other accessories),
it’s going to cause problems. #12. Mix and match patterns – Patterns, like
squares and lines, can be your best friend. Much like a pair of striped pants will make
your legs appear longer, striped accessories will allow your house to appear longer/larger
as a whole. It’s a neat trick that many people implement
with pillow cushions and such, and this is one opportunity you have in order to create
a contrast of color. #13 Foot traffic – When you live in a tiny
space, there is bound to be an abundance of foot traffic somewhere throughout the house. If this is the case, try and identify these
problem areas beforehand; this should allow you to prepare for the things that will go
on. Create spaces for hanging out, eating and
everything else; but also have a specific “high-traffic” area. Smaller apartments are much easier to destroy
with a house party! Not that you’ll be having any, of course. #14. Storage out in the open – Storage that
is implemented alongside your typical furniture items (like a bed or couch) is always sought
after, but open storage will be ideal as well. Have a few baskets that separate different
types of items, and use them effectively; it will help keep your small interior organized
at all times. This also has to do with the clutter portion
of smaller apartments, and keeping yourself free from it. #15. Picking proper “Staple Pieces” – Staple
pieces are the ones that bring together most living rooms, like coffee tables or a sofa
of some sort. Keep those pieces neutral in color, but introduce
some variety with your accessories and accents. For example, have a light gray sofa, but use
a few different shades of blue for the pillow cushions! It will not only feel comfortable, but spacious
as well. #16. Light fixtures – There are many unique
light fixtures on the market that are appealing not only visually, but also emotionally (as
weird as it sounds). There are some creative designs out there
that could keep your small apartment lit up in style! #17. Vertical storage – Since you’re already
short on space, there are a few ways to get the most out of your small apartment. When you make use of vertical storage, you’ll
notice that there are tons of different places to have shelves built. Shelves can not only look nice, but they will
allow you to store more items in your small space. Go vertical and you’ll never need to worry
about having enough storage room to work with. #18. Don’t block any lighting opportunities.
– If there are ample opportunities for letting in natural light, make sure that you aren’t
blocking any. If you have a bookshelf or anything that is
an integral piece to your home, but it happens to be blocking a natural light opportunity,
you’ll have to figure out a new place to put it. Light is always going to be the key component
to making your home appear larger, as that’s the most ideal thing to be using it for. Blocking light opportunities could be compared
to refusing a free shot at making your small apartment appear larger. #19. Use some plants! Plants will not only bring some fresh air
into the mix, but they will also just look appealing as well. Plants aren’t too large, and can add to
the home-style atmosphere that so many small apartment owners are trying to achieve. It’s hard to create comfort in such a small
space, but when you use plants and other proper accents, you’ll notice a huge difference. If you have a specific kind of plant/flower
that you favor, you can work with that choice; there isn’t any specific kind of plant that
will make your house appear bigger (just avoid large plants!). #20. Kitchen cabinet knobs – Although this
may seem out of context, the knobs that you’re sporting on your kitchen cabinets can play
a big part in the spaciousness of your home. If it’s all one color, go with an alternative
choice this time around – this is good for people who have landlords that despise renovations
(or refuse to renovate properties on their own terms). Knobs are relatively easy to swap out, and
if you’re under a lease, you can remove them and take them with you in case of a move. Done,

    I like what I see here! Especially the multi use furniture, #7!!! But the link just shows the same clip a little slower. I went to the utube link and the embedded link at the link. I slowed the credits down so I could see who makes the USB shelf unit. I got nowhere. This is a cool unit for a small living room or bedroom, but I got nowhere trying to get info about it. I will check out a few of the other ideas but am disappointed there is no info on these shelves.

    If I were shopping…YES! I would buy everything in my closet again and again…even stuff that I still have tags on from a year or two or seven ago 😀 Solution, I stopped driving to the mall and stores without a list and cut up 99% of my credit cards.
