Having a small apartment doesn’t mean you can’t feel good there when you stay at home. One of the easiest ways to find comfort in your own space is to redecorate it. For starters, it’s good to have a strategy on colors, style and functionality. To successfully decorate a small apartment, we advise you to follow a simple three-step strategy. First, choose a color scheme based on one main color and two additional colors that will be used for the decorative accessories. On this point, we advise you to choose at least one vibrant color with slightly lighter shades to create an optical illusion of larger space. Second, make a vision board on Pinterest or in a folder with inspirational, deco-style photos you like the most. It will help your imagination and your creative power, while staying away from the kitsch. Third, dedicate different corners for your favorite activities. For example, plan a corner with an armchair under a window where you will cocoon with cushions, blankets and light garlands for the hours spent reading..
A golden rule is not to stress too much about the decor. It is not at all final, nor so difficult to achieve and then to change. This is normally the most interesting part of fitting out an apartment or renewing the one you have. And the decoration can change for different reasons, such as not to get bored when you are locked in your home. Simply rearranging things can give you a new perspective, can save you space, and may even give you unexpected satisfaction. For example, the idea of decorating by corners of interest can open up the space by giving you motivation to move on the sofa which is sometimes so inviting, especially when the TV connected to Netflix is right in front. But it’s better to have diversity to feel good. Below this page you will find tips and tricks for creating your areas of interest, how to decorate a small apartment to save space and inspiring images to find the best small apartment decorating ideas..
Small apartment decoration – tip 1:
Start from the beginning. It’s time to purge all the garbage you’ve collected and brought from apartment to apartment. Especially as a youngster, it’s important to trade in some of the furniture and decor you took with you to college, for better quality pieces. Plus, you need all the space you can get. It is much easier to start from scratch than to keep unnecessary things that do not make a beautiful decoration or a good functional part of the apartment.

How to decorate a small apartment – tip 2:
Be realistic about your daily routine to make good use of the space you really need. Do you actually eat at your dining room table, or is your breakfast bar used more often? You need to be practical about what your lifestyle really is, so that you can make the best use of each room. First, I walk through space and imagine myself living there to begin the floor planning process before I even consider a piece of furniture. If you like hammocks for example, why not install one in the living room, like in the photo above ?

Small apartment decoration – tip 3:
The key is in the multifunctionality of the room. Like in the photo above, you can try to divide the different spaces in your living room. This is very easy using the rugs that will mark a small resting area, a space with a small round dining table to invite more people if necessary, an office area that you can decorate and separate with the vertical decoration, with photos and paintings that inspire you. Well, take advantage of the vertical space. That means adding shelves, hanging that painting you don’t want to get rid of, and even swapping out a floor lamp for wall lighting. Bonus: it also adds character to your apartment.
