Decorating the home is not an activity limited to large palaces or sweeping mansions. Apartments often need the love and attention that can be given by decorating and should not be overlooked. The problem many have with decorating apartments is size as most standard apartments are small in floor space. You do not have to live a cluttered lifestyle if you understand and employ the principles of decorating small spaces.
Several tips will give the small apartment the appearance of space while giving it style and flavor. Floor space is essential and gives a sense of freedom and flow, and while this may be hard to achieve in small apartments, it is not that hard to emulate. Buy furniture that will fit in the apartment without overwhelming the rooms. Couches without skirts will give the illusion of more floor space. Closets & storage is also essential for smaller studios.
There is an alternative to large bookshelves that will take up much-needed space. Another trick is that, if you must have a center table, either dining or coffee table, purchase one with a glass table top. Being able to see to the floor and not having this obtrusive metal or wooden item.
The impression of the room is open and free-flowing with furniture and shelves that take up as little space as possible while still providing comfort and style is the key. Color is also an important item and can bring together the room and the apartment.
Upholstery for the furniture, the curtains, and even the carpet or rugs should be a light color and in a monochromatic color scheme to make a visually unobstructed appearance. Using the furniture to create illusions of more floor space, along with lights color and mirrors can make any apartment trendy and beautiful.
