With these tips to decorate a small apartment you can face a series of problems that arise many times when planning the areas of the home and the organization of each space.

Currently we find a trend to build apartments and flats of reduced dimensions, since the price of land has skyrocketed and it is one of the few ways we have to access a home. Therefore, due to the lack of space, it is difficult to decorate it as we had planned.

If you find yourself in this situation and want to know some tips to decorate a small apartment, we encourage you to continue reading. You must be flexible and have one goal in mind: maximize any available space

Choice of color to decorate a small apartment

Light colored walls will make a room appear larger than it actually is , while on the other hand, painting it a dark color will create a feeling of overwhelm. In other words, the color we choose for our walls is going to have a decisive influence when creating a wide range of spaces. White and other light colors are best suited for this.

Decoration in the apartment

Although it is something very personal, the types of decoration that best suit our purpose are minimalist , modernist styles and all those that require little furniture and save us space. The idea is that we use only the furniture that is totally essential and always forming very simple lines. If it is too modest, we can use some purely decorative elements, but taking care that the final result is uniform.

Sunlight in the small apartment

Like the color, the clarity of the light will make any small space in your apartment appear larger. Whenever our economy allows us, we must place glass in windows that have natural light throughout the day. The advantages of sunlight are many, on the one hand we save energy (good for the planet and for your pocket) and on the other, this type of lighting is not as harmful to your eyes as artificial lighting can be. If you have to change the windows and always thinking about saving space, it is better if they are of the sliding type.

Artificial light in the apartment

Among the types of artificial lighting that exist, we are left with halogen light , which is capable of projecting a lot of amplitude and helps us to reach those spaces that are very far from the natural lighting of our apartment. A good alternative is the portholes, which allow us to focus the light to the point we want and that, when glued to the walls or ceiling, hardly take up space.

Maximizing the apartment space

We will have to take care of every little detail , deducting centimeters from here and there so that when we add them all we notice how our available space has increased . In this sense, buy a bed of 90 or 100 centimeters, which are known as “individual” instead of those that have 105 or 120, which are “body and a half.” To make the most of our bed there are some box-type bed bases that are located just under the mattress, so you can store your things while saving space.

With this idea in mind we can change our lamps and bedside tables for light fixtures, avoid traditional furniture and bet on drawers and built-in shelves or even change our bathtub for a shower tray. If, in addition to giving our home more space, we create a place to store things, as in the case of the box-type bed base that we mentioned earlier, then we are doing doubly well.
