Utilizing Space for the Best Apartment Decoration
Intelligent space and inventive storage solutions are key to the functionality of a small space. It is important to be aware of the limitations of decorating a small home even before moving and purchasing furniture. So measure the space of a small dwelling, draw a floor plan and scale your furniture to the right size on paper.
But the sole is not the decisive factor in decorating a small space. Also consider e.g. furniture shapes, materials, functional factors, room height utilization, storage solutions, light and shades. You can also ask a home decorator to help you.
Door opening directions in a small space
Often opening cabinets and doors to the outside takes up space while making interior decoration more difficult. Sliding doors are a good option. There are also hinges on the market that allow you to lift the cabinet door upright from the bottom to the top to save room. In case of the small apartment decorating ideas this is important.
Not all cabinets need to be deep
At least not all wardrobes need to be 60 cm deep. Think about what you are going to keep in the closet. For example, a 30-40 cm deep wardrobe will work well if you keep, for example, crocheted shirts or shoes.
Consider the small space also in the elevation direction
Take up the entire space also in the vertical direction. Think of cubes, not just squares, and calculate the floor area in addition to the floor area. If the room height is high, you can build a loft below the normal Stand height. Nor is it a crazy idea to build a bed on, say, 150 cm high cabinets.

You can also set the cabinets from floor to ceiling. They hide a lot of stuff but take up little living space. Place the bookshelves to rotate above the door for a lot more shelf meters.
Multifunctional household appliances and fragile appliances
Today, combined machines, such as an oven, are also on the market and are also available for microwave operation. You can buy a mini coffee maker or maybe you can turn on a nut pan.
Choose furniture that can be stacked, concealed and light
Choose from graceful, lightweight, stackable and easily movable furniture. Glass or otherwise transparent tables and chairs bring airiness. However, do not fall for furniture that is too small, if you do not want to give the dollhouse impression.
How about a raised bed? A sofa bed is also a good option. In a small home you may not need a bed and a sofa. A table or sliding table and wall-mounted folding bench are also space-saving furniture.
Utilize almost every centimeter, but not exaggerated
While a small dwelling must take every centimeter into account, do not be guilty of filling every centimeter with goods. A small amount of space gives the feeling of space. Space is also saved if you, for example, harness a stair base for storage. Laurie’s 15.5 square meter studios have a stylish cabinet under the stairs.
