Many people own big houses as their homes; however they have arranged the contents in their houses so badly the space in the house looks small and cluttered. On the contrary there are a number of people who own small houses/ apartments but pay special attention to even small things so that the house looks decent and orderly.
Irrespective of whether your house is big or small you can still live in an apartment/ small home in a decent manner by intelligently arranging your home decor.
In order to decorate your home in the right manner you should take the assistance of a qualified interior designer; alternately, you could look at books on interior decoration for homes. Either of these methods will give you the design of furnishings that will fit into your apartment properly and also ensure that there is no wastage of space. Furniture such as sofa-cum-bed can be used for multiple purposes such as sofa in the day and bed in the night. A book case with horizontal doors can also act as a coffee/ study table.
The colors used in an apartment/ small homes assume more importance than the colors used in larger homes. Always use lighter colors for the ceiling, walls, floors and also furniture; this will help in giving a feeling that the home is roomy. Try to avoid using colors that are dark in the small home because they make the rooms look small. While selecting the furnishings for decorating a small home as well as an apartment you must opt for compact and uncomplicated items. It is essential that you make better use of all spaces that are odd by locating your bookcase/ lampshades.
It is absolutely essential that you keep your home neat and tidy; every item you own should be placed in the right location so that the house appears organized and clean. This is very crucial because all your attempts to decorate your home using a lot of creativity will go waste, if it is cluttered. Every member in the family must be made responsible for keeping things clean and in correct location instead of depending on one individual to do this job. Children normally scatter items inside the room; discipline them to place things in the right location. Ensure optimum utilization of the space available.
