Small Studio Apartment Decorating Tips – The next topic that is available to discuss today is Small Studio Apartment Decorating Tips. It is indeed that there are many people who live in smaller spaces today. It might because of economics or personal preference. This decision is indeed often pays off financially. Besides, decorating a smaller apartment also provides its own challenges in terms of how you use the space. You can make a small space more user-friendly by using furniture that serves double duty or that hides clutter. When putting together an apartment like this, planning how you will decorate and use the space saves you both money and space in the end.
First thing to note, couches or chairs without armrests make a small space look bigger. It is because this type of design makes the piece of furniture look wider and also open. It somehow gives the appearance of openness to the objects and room around it. If you find that you somehow need to put an armrest couches, you can put a heavy end table next to the end of your couch and place some colorful throw pillows next to the table for comfort as well as a splash of color.
Second things to note is about the positioning of your furniture. When you do it correctly, it will help you to minimize the look of a small room. In addition, you also need to plan the layout of your room carefully. For example, you should place your largest piece like your couch or maybe a piano against the longest wall. This allows you to utilize the space and avoid the stubbed toes that happen when people round the corner too quickly and bump into the furniture.
The most brilliant ideas is to add some mirrors. Mirrors are somehow enhance the openness of a space if you use them to reflect the light in the room instead of reflecting the space itself. So instead of positioning a big mirror to face your couch and thus reflect back your couch, position it in such a way that it catches the afternoon light or the soft light from the Japanese lantern you have hanging from your ceiling.
