5 Decorating Ideas for Small Apartments

  1. Add a pop of color. A bright piece of furniture or bold artwork can be a great focal point and actually make your space seem larger by drawing your eye to another part of the room. Pair a bright piece with neutral items to make the space seem more open and larger.
  2. Add mirrors and metallic details. Mirrors make a space seem bigger, so placing a mirror or two in your apartment lets in more light and enlarges the space. You can also play up metallic accessories, like silver lamps or shiny picture frames, to add to the mirrored effect.
  3. Use floating shelves. They are a must-have because they are great for storage but don’t take up floor space like traditional shelves or bookcases. They fit nicely over couches, tables, or beds.
    Consider bringing in some color with plants
  4. Add a plant. Greenery adds life and vibrancy to a space, even in small doses. A small plant on an end table or a windowsill makes an apartment seem lighter and airier. If you don’t have much of a green thumb, you might want to consider a low-maintenance plant like bamboo.
  5. Get creative with storage. Don’t let a piece of furniture slip by without storing something. Ottomans can open and hold blankets, a bench can have a shelf for books underneath, or a coffee table can sit on top of baskets of movies or toys. In a small space, every item should be pulling double duty.
