Creative tricks for small apartments
A small apartment is not the reason for us not to want something brighter, more airy and more beautiful. The area can be visually expanded in several ways and here are the three main rules:
- Remove all barriers or at least those that are not necessary,
- Use bright furniture in the apartment,
- Point at some piece of furniture that creates a sense of spaciousness and freshness.
Apartment designed in this way gives feeling that is outside of the city. There are many additional possibilities to relieve or completely neutralize limitations of small apartment in addition to these basic rules. Here are some of the most practical tricks for small apartments
1. Cabinet combined with the sofa
This is great way to use the most from the area. The cabinet is combined and well incorporated with the sofa that can be used as bed too. If cabinet is white or bright it could “open the area”. This piece of furniture would not stand out too much and apartment could look more spacious and more organized. It is recommended for the white cabinet to be combined with white wall on the opposite side or with some relief bricks.
2. Curtains and small details
Curtains and wallpapers are extremely important details in every room especially in a small one. Pleated curtains are recommended for small apartments. Floral materials provide an appearance in rural style and that atmosphere makes the small space more pleasant.
3. Wallpaper in bright colours
Very effective trick in small apartments are bright wallpapers. This is particularly evident if the wall against the windows has bright wallpapers, like the green printed trees in this apartment. If you place two mirrors from floor to ceiling in your apartment, the illusion of an extra room will be even more intensive.
4. Original solutions for unused places
You are going to need more originally solutions in order to use every corner in your apartment. One of them may be wide shelf on the wall below the TV which could make the place more interesting and more practical. Chairs and other details will convert the place into social corner which is not case with bigger apartments.
5. Small dining room
The corner between the living room and the kitchen could be always used as a dining area. This could save for you few precious squares because you used completely an area of the apartment that usually does not have any function. The area above the dining table and between two windows is an ideal place for small shelf with lamps, candles, books and other things.
6. Lots of colours in the bathroom
Every small apartment includes small bathroom too, so we suggest one of the most effective tricks in that case. Different coloured objects give lively atmosphere in this area that does not have any daylight. Best of all is that you could make this change with small amount of money.
