Ideas to make a small apartment spacious and comfortable
Living space is precious and we all know that every extra square is a luxury. Few people today have no desire for additional space - for a separate bedroom from the living room, for a separate dining room from the kitchen, for a dream closet…
The advice of architects and designers for decorating a small space is getting better and more meaningful, but some even professionals keep to themselves. We bring you a few simple and practical ideas that are used by even the best in the profession, and which at least visually increase the space.
1. Curtains - are they really necessary?
If you have blinds or venetian blinds that will provide intimacy in the home in the evening, ask yourself if you really need curtains. Natural light is an imperative of every home, especially a small one. If you still can't imagine a home without curtains, let them be long and richly pleated. There is nothing uglier than bad and small curtains in a small and crowded apartment.
2. Mirrors, mirrors, mirrors…
This is the most common piece of advice that you have probably heard, but probably ignored because it is the least used. Mirrors reflect light and color, and create the illusion of extra space.
3. Transparent furniture
Glass, plexiglass, any transparent material from which furniture is made is welcome in a small apartment. Transparent pieces look airy, light and unobtrusive.
4. Furniture with "legs"
Furniture with "legs" such as tables and sofas, which are simple and minimalist, has a similar effect as transparent furniture.
5. Match the color of the walls and furniture
You like the contrast of colors in the space, and that’s good, just not for too small spaces. A wall and a sofa in the same color are a recipe for simplicity and reduction of visual clutter.
6. When it comes to art - the bigger the better
Although it goes without saying that large and bulky pieces of furniture do not go into a small space, the opposite rule applies when it comes to art and decorations. A huge framed poster, picture or photo on the wall will look unexpectedly great. Of course, in a strictly limited amount.
7. Reduce the number of decorations and group them
We know that decorations, little things and details make a home individual and intimate. But do you need a few decorations on each shelf, dresser, table… Reduce them to a few interesting and favorite pieces and group them in one place and leave free space for books, photos…
