Every home is unique and special in its own way, and a small apartment is no less special than a three-bedroom house. You don’t have to have a large living space to fully express yourself.

How to Decorate a Small Apartment

Less space requires more creativity. Thankfully, we’re here to help. The first, and perhaps the most difficult thing to manage, is the amount of stuff you have. Keep in mind that just because an apartment is on the smaller side does not mean it’s okay the clutter. The last thing you want is your guests feeling overwhelmed by their surroundings or stepping over something just to get to the restroom. If you have an apartment floorplan, start by roughly drawing in where the major furniture pieces will be. Once you feel like the flow is right for your square footage, begin arranging your furniture. A great way to get the most out of your space is to define separate areas, which is even more important in an efficient apartment. Your living room, bedroom, and dining areas should not feel like they’re overlapping. Room dividers can also be helpful in accomplishing this. For another decorating idea, try utilizing your vertical space! Search for wall-mounted cabinets or bookcases to provide more storage space

Making a Small Apartment Look Nice

While the square footage may be limiting, there is no limit to your imagination, allowing you to make any apartment look nice no matter the size. To help spruce up your living space, we recommend painting your walls white since lighter colors make spaces appear larger. Another way to improve the visual appeal of your apartment is to use bold splashes of color. Whether it’s bright curtains or a desk lamp that draws your eye, this technique has been proven to make small spaces feel more open since it provides many alluring focal points. Quality also counts when making small apartments look nice. Make sure you choose fine furnishings to elevate your living space.

Other Great Small Apartment Decorating Ideas

Living in a small apartment? You don’t need to be an interior designer to make your apartment feel bigger. A small space may feel restricting, but there are always ways to transform a space into a comfortable living area. Check out a few of these helpful tips!


Get Inspiration from Decor Stores

Some decor stores provide miniature examples of a designed space. Not only are these aesthetically pleasing arrangements, but they’re also perfect for gathering inspiration for your own apartment. Next time you visit one of these stores, bring a camera or notepad to gather ideas.


Multi-Purpose Wall Decor

Some wall decor like hanging shelves or similar pieces allow you to stack books or other objects. While looking great they also free up floor space and can instantly define any given space. Get creative with them! There are many styles and arrangements you can play around with to artfully express yourself.


Store with Style

When you have the right kind of objects and space, you can sometimes display objects that would typically be stored. In the kitchen, try hanging your pots and pans in a way that’s aesthetically pleasing. In the bedroom, a nice clothing rack can turn a normally drab looking room into a colorful expression if your clothes are worth showcasing.
