With a very limited space in your apartment, it is necessary to make as much use of what you have. Especially for the living room, which is usually the space that has the most functions, from gathering with family and friends to even eating. Although it looks difficult, with a little creativity it is actually very easy to optimize space in a small apartment living room.
Playing with colors is the easiest way to manipulate space. Dark colors will make your living room even tinier. Use white as a dominant color because it creates an airy feeling. Natural colors such as grey and earthy tones also work. To create accent, you can add bright colors such as green and red.
For a small living room, your choice of furniture is very important. Rather than a huge couch, pick sleek, slim chairs and tables. The slim frame will make them look tall and saving space. Alternatively, use multifunctional furniture. For example, ottoman stools which may double as storage or function as side tables. So, you do not need much furniture to fulfil all your needs.
Decorating a small room can be challenging. But the trick is using decorations that are functional. For instance, you can never go wrong with decorative hanging shelves. Their attractive design will brighten your room, and they also function as storage space. Plus, they do not take up much space but instead you are using the vertical dimension of your room. Generally, opt for decor that are hanging or put on the wall. That way, you draw the eyes upward, so the room appears taller.
As you can see, it is not difficult to create a stylish and space-saving living room design. The most important thing is being smart in choosing furniture that optimize the available room.
