If you live in a small apartment, you encounter every day with two big problems: how to increase the space and where to store things. Often the problems are exacerbated by the fact that not always have the opportunity to do a complete redesign. But do not despair! Little apartment – it’s just a challenge to your imagination and creativity.
Use the floor.
If you live in a small apartment or house, you can not ignore any part of your house, including the floor. Using furniture on high legs, you visually increase floor space.
Create a “focal point art.”
Each room needs its “focal point.” Focal point is characteristic features or elements that focus around, setting the overall style and character of the interior.
For example, it may be a decorative fireplace, a expressive windows or a bright sofa. “Focal Point” allows room look more spacious than it actually is.
Eliminate unnecessary things!
Almost every house has the things that have never been used and are unlikely. Try to get rid of anything that is not used! You like it and it is not difficult. It makes no sense to turn your apartment into a warehouse.
Regardless of whether you live in a small studio, or you have a few small rooms, try using furniture with several functions. Sofa bed, a bed with storage drawers, folding kitchen table. Today, this furniture can be found in almost any store.
Even the walls have storage space.
Sometimes the walls can be a great alternative for storage. Bulky coat rack in the hall can be replaced with wall hooks, hangers, and too large wardrobe or chest of drawers – Wall shelf or rack.
