Eight great ideas for your tiny apartment

If you’re living in a small home, you need to think twice about everything you buy. Is there enough space for it? Where does it fit? The good thing is: You’ll be less tempted to gather things and more tempted to declutter. Read on to find out how to make to most of a tiny apartment and give the illusion of more space.

1. Furniture and storage

Anything that offers shelf space and drawers is a wise choice when it comes to furnishing small rooms. What’s even better is if you find furniture that’s multifunctional and doesn’t take up much space.

2. Sticking with your colour concept

A wild mixture of colours makes small rooms look cluttered. Before you start furnishing and decorating your new home, think of two or three colours you’d like to stick to. Here’s a trick: Pick or paint shelves and cupboards in the same colour as the walls. This makes your furniture blend in with the walls, leaving your room look calm and airy.

3. Getting your cupboards and drawers right

Large cupboards and drawers are great, but not suitable to keep things in order, especially if you cram them full. Baskets and boxes are great to divide storage spaces in small and tidy units – be it in your kitchen or in your wardrobe.

4. Making use of high ceilings

Maximise your space by using the heights of your rooms. Wall shelves, hanging shelves and ladder shelves are great to keep your floor empty. But don’t fill your shelves up to the top; only place a few items on them and your storage space will double as decoration.

5. Finding nooks

They appear awkward at first, but nooks are perfect to hide away things. Behind the door, underneath the bed, under a sloping roof or a staircase – every nook can be turned into storage space. DIY shelves and modular furniture systems are ideal, as they can be made to fit any shape and size of nook.

6. Bathrooms

The bathroom is the one room in almost everyone’s home that’s full of loose items – cotton buds, moisturising cream, jewellery, shampoo, hairspray and so on. This often looks messy. When it comes to your bathroom, there’s only one thing: keep it simple. Go for plain-coloured towels and keep toiletries in baskets. Rotating shelves and under sink storage solutions don’t take up a lot of space and make sure you have everything you need to hand.

7. Fold-up, extendable and stacking solutions

Small furniture that can be folded up is ideal, as you can store it away after use. How about a sofa bed for your office, living room or guest room? Anything that can be stacked up, as storage boxes, chairs, shelves or even beds, is ideal to keep as much floor space as possible free.
