Feeling like you are getting a little claustrophobic in your small apartment? It seemed like a bigger space when you have just moved in. Well, FurniturePick has to reveal, that there’s nothing bad going on. You’ve only broken the rules of the small space living code. And we know how to fix it, don’t burn it down.
❶ Small spaces are easily vulnerable to clutter. Keep it under control all the time. No hesitation or excuses during the week, as you might eventually face the snowball effect. Moreover, once you have made all well-organized – keep it the best way you can. This will save you time and make your home comfortable with no stress.
❷ Double-duty furniture is a must! Think about the under-bed storage, kitchen islands, storage ottomans and benches, chests. Still, go easy on saving-space furniture in order not to make it a doll-house. Mix it with the few larger and relaxed pieces. And don’t forget about the walls! (see paragraph ❺ for details)
❸ Take care of the visually airy style of your furniture. Preferable use of the light furniture will help your space look less cramped. Modern furniture with hairpin legs and straight geometric lines will serve you good.
❹ Careful with colors! As well as visually light in furniture style, as we mentioned before, your small cave has to be light in color too. The good amount of light colors and mirrors will make it visually more spacious. The smart decision is to use one accent wall with the bright dominant color in order not to make the apartment too dull and pale.
❺ Utilize the wall space, take the burden off the floor. Shelves, cabinets, hutches, cup racks – a touch of imagination and you will make it a useful spot. Keep it organized and not too overstuffed. And don’t forget to leave space for a wall art or memories wall.
❺..& ½ And, stay positive! Believe it or not, but still small space apartment takes less effort to take care of, than the several-room house! Spend time outside your home in public parks, coffee shop, go for a picnic to a city garden, go jogging or for any other activity you like. A change of scenery is always a good idea!
