So you have a small apartment. You may wonder, how do I make my small space look comfortable and inviting without looking cluttered? I have your answer. Several solutions start with looking around, noticing the windows' placement and the way the light reflects in the rooms during different times of the day. You do not want to blind someone, which could be visiting, by that stunning sunset. Also, look at your current furniture and the colors that it is or is not. Some colors can make a room look small, clinical, and cold. Good warm-toned colors also make it more comfortable for you to live there. Browns, Reds, Yellows, and Oranges are great colors to open up space and make the room warm and inviting. Use accent rugs to help with the addition of colors, as some Landlords do not allow you to paint. Sofa Covers are a great way to add color and save from wear and tear on your furniture.

When choosing a color scheme, please note that you should choose something easy to clean, i.e., browns and grays. White is not a good choice unless you plan on never really living in your place. Look at the big picture; small living rooms mean you shouldn't get a sectional sofa. Instead, try a small love seat or futon couch. Not only does the futon couch help with space, but it can be converted into a bed for those single-room apartments. If you are on a budget and don't want to get rid of your current mattress and are in a studio apartment, try a bed that looks like a bunk bed without the lower bunk. That way, you can store your dress and other articles under the bunk and enclose it with a curtain, and no one can see your unmade bed up top. This is very useful for bachelors.

Try creating rooms with the use of decorative screens. It can make a single room look like two or more rooms are there. Also, remember your curtains; they should allow the light in; the lighter you let in, the bigger the space looks. Use a small bistro table as a dining table. It is intimate and makes for a great coffee talk spot. Remember to permanently hide your laundry if you are lucky enough to have someone in your apartment. Laundry lying around makes the apartment appear cluttered and small. Plants are a great way to make your room appear bigger. Try hanging them from the ceiling or using hooks on the wall. Don't forget the importance of mirrors. The use of mirrors can make your small apartment look large. Use a focal point and angle your mirror towards it; it gives the illusion of depth. Most importantly, ensure you always have a clean space; it is always more prominent when it is clean.

Ok, so now you have gone and cleaned, you notice that the apartment still looks small. Question your storage. You need some ideas for storage, you say? Well, I am full of them. Look around, and if you notice you have many magazines, get yourself a magazine holder. It is a handy little box that is decorative to your specific likes, and it cleans up your tables of clutter. Get yourself a footrest that has storage inside of it. It is excellent when a surprise guest comes over, and you need to store something quickly. A coffee table with storage underneath it is also a wise choice. The more storage you have that isn't added clutter makes your life easier. Wall shelves help to eliminate tabletop mess. Put your collectible gnomes on a small wall shelf and look at all the free space you have just created for yourself. All of the suggestions presented here are easy-to-do yourself projects. You can get most of these easy-to-use items at your local all-purpose store and hardware store.
