8 Stunning Decorating Tips to Furnish Small Homes
With more and more small apartment coming up, moving into one could be a challenge in selecting the suitable furniture. Here are some tips that will help you save money and buy furniture that looks spectacular in a small apartment.
Never buy anything for your apartment before measuring the area first. If you’re planning on putting a couch against a wall in your living room, measure the length of the wall. This way, you can figure out how much space you’ll have remaining.
2. Multipurpose furniture
When selecting a couch, look for designs that serve more than one function. For instance, search for a coach that has a pull-out bed. This feature will come in very handy when you have overnight guests.
3. Furnishing arrangement
Be sure you’re arranging your furniture in a way that makes it easy for you and your guests to move about the room. You don’t want to have to climb over your coffee table in order to get to the kitchen.
4. Install floating shelves
Floating shelves offer storage space without the bulkiness of chest, bookshelf, and drawers. You can even swap out your nightstands for floating shelves.
5. Colour selection
Use light colours on the walls and floor. Softer colours can make a cramped room feel bigger and brighter.
6. Make use of corners
Corners can be a great spot to squeeze in an extra accent chair or a corner bookshelf, making your area more livable. Or tuck a cozy chair in a corner to create an instant reading nook.
7. Opt for airy furniture
Instead of a solid-wood table, which can weigh down a space, choose a see-through acrylic one or a table with an open metal base.
8. Wall as display
Hang up your jewelry, or pretty cutting boards and trivets, to clear out valuable drawer space in the bedroom or kitchen.
