Small Apartment? Big Deal! Part 1

Living in an apartment has many great benefits, but at some point you might feel like your style is being cramped.

Small Apartment? Big Deal! Part 1

Living in an apartment has many great benefits, but at some point you might feel like your style is being cramped and that you need some space. We have some great ideas on how you can make the most of the space you have available to create a sense of space in your apartment.

Semi-opaque dividers

If you plan on buying a room divider, choose one that is made of a semi-opaque material to ensure that the light can still go through.

Great outdoors

Create an outdoor living area to add space without literally making your house bigger. Build a patio or a porch where you can relax.

They do it with mirrors

Mirrors – in fact all shine surfaces – reflect light which makes spaces seem bigger. Use gloss paint and reflective tiles if a mirror won’t do the trick.

Keep it light

Use large windows and extended skylights to let us much light as possible into you home. The sense of being half inside and half outside makes the room feel bigger.

The white stuff

Decorate an entire room in shades of white, with some neutral accents. White creates an illusion of everything being brighter and more spacious.

Shelf life

Build shelves right to the ceiling to create floor-to-ceiling storage space – this is a great idea especially if you live in an apartment with a slanted ceiling. Store appliances and other things you don’t often use on the topmost shelves.

Curtain call

You can also use curtains to close off certain living areas – this way you can open or close the curtain depending on your need for privacy in that area, plus it’s a great way to add a pop of colour or design fun to the room without too much commitment!

Try these home hacks to create more space in your home and make your apartment feel bigger in the blink of an eye.
