Tips for decorating the small apartment
1. Clear colors
It is not today that light colors are used to visually enlarge spaces, but with the appearance of smaller and smaller homes this trick has become a necessity. So, choose to keep colors clear and neutral in the decor.
The tip is worth both the color of the walls and the furniture. However, this does not prevent you from using a darker or more vibrant color in the decor, but for that you prefer only one wall or apply those shades in detail such as on pictures, cushions or other decorative objects.
The mirrors are unbeatable when the subject is visual amplitude. They are the best friends of small environments and, in addition, are highly decorative. You can use them on a whole wall, for example, or at specific points like the wall behind the dining table or the door of the wardrobe. To make the environment look cleaner, prefer frameless mirrors.
3. Multipurpose furniture
Multipurpose furniture is a hand on the wheel. Convertible sofas, beds with under-the-mattresses, retractable tables and sofas, and other furnishings can help make the home more functional, organized and beautiful. Invest in them to optimize the space of your apartment.
4. Leave the ground clearance
Put everything on top and free, as much as possible, the floor of unnecessary objects and furniture. An example is to opt for a TV panel instead of using a rack. You can also replace shelves, sideboards and buffets by niches and shelves. The coffee tables and side tables can also be discarded from the decoration without major damage. With the floor free the working area of circulation increases and the apartment becomes more comfortable and functional.
5. Sliding Doors
Replace traditional doors with sliding doors as much as possible. They do not take up space and leave the walls free for other purposes. For cabinets, the concept is the same.
Integrate the environments
Integrated environments favor small spaces. Check the possibility of making structural changes in your apartment to achieve this effect. The most commonly integrated environments are balcony with living room and / or living room, kitchen and dining room. There is still the possibility of integrating all of them. If you have any unused rooms consider the possibility of removing the walls and gain even more space for the integrated area. Just be sure to level the floor between the environments.
Planned furniture is the best option for small apartments. Yes, they tend to be more expensive, yet it is a worthwhile investment. With them, you take full advantage of the space and also have the possibility to choose the partitions and divisions of the cabinets in the way that is most appropriate to organize and accommodate your things.
Bet on organizers to make your apartment more tidy. Organized environments are nicer and appear to be larger. Baskets, stands, hooks are all very welcome and may or may not be on display. There are models that are embedded inside the cabinet doors to unlock the environment of objects.
This item is very important to help visually enlarge environments. If you have windows, great, use and abuse the natural clarity they provide. If you have few or no windowless environments, invest in an artificial lighting project that will take care of the message. Remember that the white lights brighten better than the yellow ones, so leave these for environments that need to pass through a sense of comfort and warmth, such as balconies and TV rooms.
Less is more
And, finally, choose carefully and carefully the objects that will make up your decoration. The ideal for small apartments is to reduce the number of decorative pieces exposed, leaving the environments more clean and tidy. Another important detail is to standardize the decoration of the rooms in the same style.
