Prettying Up a Small Apartment With the Right Home Decor

Prettying Up a Small Apartment With the Right Home Decor
  • Opening Intro -

    If you are a city person who loves living right in the middle of all the excitement, then you have probably made peace with the fact that your home will look like a doll house compared to someone who has given up city life and chosen to move far, far away.


The property prices are always the highest, where all the action happens. Also, the chances of your humble dwelling appreciating at a sky high rate are way higher than someone’s home with a back yard and swing set, two train rides away. But a small house, though compact, can be made to look extremely tidy, pretty and personalized.

How to make sure that you are making the most of your space while doing up your home? Simple, choose the right home decor! Read on to know more:

  1. Nothing adds the illusion of space like the colour white. It looks chic, it looks crisp, it looks inviting yet no-nonsense at the same time and it makes the space look bigger. A two-seater white couch will look great in a small or medium sized living room. Opting for an acrylic centre table will complement the white and make the space look even bigger. You can also choose two petite side tables in white or acrylic instead of one centre table, depending on how the space is planned. If white couch is asking for too much hard work, especially if you have children or pets, choose white roman blinds, and white dining table chairs, which would be easier to maintain.
  2. Adding angular mirrors or mirror work to some walls of the house is a good idea to make the place look bigger than it is. While choosing mirrors for compact places, try not to go with too many busy designs, choose more of rectangular and square shaped mirrors. A glass dining table or a work desk can be added to make the place look less cluttered and more organized.
  3. Refrain from too many dark colours – be it on the walls, in the furniture, or with accessories. You can paint one wall in a pop colour or use a bright coloured statue, artefact or rug. This will break the monotony of glass, whites and acrylic. But adding too many different shades of bright colours will make the place look too chaotic and cluttered.
  4. A wall mounted dining table, a pull out sofa, moveable floor cushions are great space savers. This way when you have overnight guests or when you are entertaining, you have the extra space, and when it’s just you and your family, your home can be spick and span and spacious.
  5. Choosing a queen size bed with a smaller headboard is a great space saving idea to make the bedroom look roomy. Buying organizers and pretty looking storage containers is an awesome idea to store everything from costume jewellery to handbags to makeup to shoes and children’s clothing. You can neatly stack hard top boxes and soft boxes with zippers to keep as many of your belongings in closed cupboards as possible.
  6. Portable and foldable wooden desks (now available in myriad colours), can used in place of a dining table or a study table. You can work on your laptop using this table or even have breakfast in bed.
  7. Stay away from bulky TV sets, laptops, heavy duty ovens and giant refrigerators. Choose gadgets and appliances and do more and look sleeker so that they take away less space and make your home look contemporary.
