How to Decorate a One Bedroom Apartment – Solutions for Small Spaces
Small space is always a challenge in interior design. But that does not mean a small house has to necessarily be an impediment to your desire to tastefully decorate the apartment and create a feeling of spaciousness through some tricks easy to put into practice. Limited space suddenly gets bigger proportions and the small dwelling receives a note of freshness that will change the spacial perception. Below are some ideas about how to decorate a one bedroom apartment.
An initial response to the need for space is installing a folding door that takes up half of the space needed for a standard door. The saved space can thus be used to place new furniture, a table or a wall mirror that always gives the feeling of spaciousness.
In this case, to open up the floor space, the designer chose a corner banquette with storage spaces underneath, giving the small sofa more than its initial purpose.
Use the walls to store things and save the rest of the space in the room. A floor-to-ceiling bookcase makes full use of the height to get as many items between its shelves.
Because we mentioned walls, suspend as many shelves as the space allows you because they are ideal for arranging decorative items that will personalize the camera. Also, hanging mirrors on the walls will help you achieve more natural light, besides an increased feeling of space.
A chest or a dresser can receive multiple roles in a small house. In this case, the owner uses it for a desk, a bar and even as a diapers changing table. In the bedroom, you can give up bedside tables and replace them with floating shelves.
We’ve said it many times: use light colors on the walls and floor. Softer hues can make a cramped room feel bigger and brighter. On the other hand, bringing a little color to a small bedroom also helps, like in the picture below, where the owner chose to paint the furniture instead of walls, giving the room a touch of vitality, hiding the sensation of limited space.
Speaking of colors, hang a curtain by installing the rod close to the ceiling, making windows seem taller. If the curtain match the walls chromatically, then you have the illusion of uninterrupted space in an otherwise small room.
