No matter how small or cramped there may have been a time when you wondered if there was a way to get the most out of your space. How do I make my apartment bigger, without paying for a larger space? Listed below are some inexpensive tricks and tips you can use to help organize and make the most out of your tiny space.
Bold color and Neutrals.
Whether it be neutral walls and bold furniture or neutral furniture and a bold wallpaper, having a spotlight in the room helps the eye settle. While the you eyes settle on that popping point in your space, you will slowly recognize the rest of the details in the room. Helping your space to feel much larger and fun.
Believe it or not, there is no rule no lawsuit waiting to happen if you leave kitchen stuff in the living room or combine your bedroom in the family room. A living room/ family room is ment to be lived in! It is ment to express yourself beautifully. And sometimes the best way to do that is by showing your taste in daybeds, or kitchen accessories. By combining rooms you not only add interest and spark conversations with your guests but you are allowing the other room to be less cluttered.
Baskets & Storage Ottomans/Benches.
A simple go to design tool is to store any towels, blankets, sheets, shoes and more in well made baskets. Use a lid or not, you are able to create an organizational feel by allowing your stuff to be gathered in an attractive piece of decor.
Correct Proportioned Lights and Headboards.
When paired with style, color, and size in mind a bedroom decorated with a nice headboard and lamps can be enough to make your room feel like a master suite. A light should be placed or hung enough to display a wide span of light on your surface or room and be easy enough to turn on and off from a standing posture or sitting/laying down. While a headboard should be based on the architecture of the room, a small room should typically call for a shorter headboard, whereas a tall room gives you more leeway. If you are unsure try testing out what looks best on a piece of paper, or measure the desired height for your headboard and stick to your goal.
