If you set up a small apartment, you have to follow some rules. Start with the furniture. Not only small furniture is suitable for small rooms, because they actually make the room seem overcrowded. Choose a few, but comfortable and practical furniture that visually complements the room. A light sofa without armrests and an armchair in the corner are preferable in this case.

Furnishing a small apartment – furniture with storage space and other functions

The furniture in the small apartment has to fulfill more than one function. For example, a stool with a lid or a coffee table with a drawer or shelves. You can also place the TV directly on a dresser instead of buying a TV stand.

Mirrors not only reflect light, but also create a feeling of more space. They create visual depth and can cover an entire wall. Instead of the traditional tile mirrors, you can lay the kitchen back wall with mirrors.

A small room always looks bigger with more light – whether natural or artificial. Do not block the natural light from the window with furniture or heavy curtains. Replace heavy drapes with sheer drapes or blinds. Choose wall or recessed lights instead of table lights because they take up more space.

Use the vertical space

A wall-mounted flat screen TV is probably the best option for small spaces. The floating wall shelves offer space for your books, photos and make optimal use of the space. Do the same in the kitchen. To create more space in the cabinets and on the countertop, arrange the spice and jam jars on the shelves along the walls.

Bringing the chaos under control

Keeping the small apartment in order will make it look wider and more welcoming, no matter how small it is. Decorative storage boxes are ideal for storing all the little things. Often tidy the closets and throw away old and unnecessary items.
