Whether you’re downsizing from a large home or just starting out in your own apartment, the size of your home should never limit your interior design possibilities! We’ve gathered a few ways that you can transform any small space into a welcoming and unique home environment.
1. Use floating shelves
These can be found at almost any hardware store, and also easy to install. Set up a few in your living room and add decorative objects like picture frames and other mementos to brighten up the walls.
2. Dress up your windows
You don’t have to stick to boring blinds, so add a dash of color to any room with some curtains. Either make your own if you’re feeling crafty, or find a good deal at a local store.
3. Re-purposed furniture
The summer is a great time for yard sale finds! Take an old dresser or chair and re-paint it for a very cost-effective way to add splashes of color to any room.
4. Invest in a good floor rug
You’d be surprised just how much one large area rug can really transform a space. Whether it’s for your living room or bedroom, this can be a great way to experiment with fun patterns to tie a theme together.
5. Make use of mirrors
This is a decorating trick that can really work wonders. Mirrors reflect light and can make a space look bigger. If it’s in a prime location, the mirror will receive natural light and reflect back into the room.
6. Time to entertain
If you mount your TV to the wall, before doing so you can hang some panel art behind it to make the entertainment center the focal point of your living room.
