Do you sometimes feel a little cramped in your apartment? Are you thinking it is too small? Get those thoughts out of your head. Most of the time, we have more than enough space in our apartments, but do not utilize them correctly. This leaves us feeling cramped and uncomfortable. I am going to show you how to use your space the correct way, so you can turn that small, cluttered apartment into your place of liberation and comfort. Follow these tips to free yourself from a small room.
- Get Rid of the Clutter – Now is a perfect time to do some spring cleaning. If you have not used an item in a year or two throw it out or donate it. There is no need for your coffee table to be stacked with old magazines. One or Two magazines are enough. Your living room should be 100% clean no papers, toys, blankets, or other knick knacks should be lying on the floor or on your furniture.
- Use the Light – Light colors open up a big room. Most apartments are painted with neutral and/or light colors and some allow you to paint. If painting is an option, paint one wall (accent wall), but keep it neutral or light. Also, let the natural light come into your apartment. The natural light reflects off your wall giving the appearance of a bigger room. If you have window treatments keep them sheer to avoid blocking the natural light.
- Add Glass – Having glass in a piece of furniture, for instance a coffee table with a glass centerpiece expands your floor space. A Mirror will expand the overall space of the room, too. If possible place the mirror at a location where it can reflect more of the natural light.
