20 Ideas How to Make Your Small Apartment More Spacious

Updated: Feb 7, 2020

A high percentage of young professionals while chasing a great success in a big city, very often have to compromise on living square footage. Let's face it - living in a big city definitely comes with a significant price tag. You all deserve a place that makes you happy and you can call home.

Dear creatives, nothing to worry about, there are plenty of things you could do to make your small apartment look and feel more spacious:

1. Paint the ceiling or cover it with wallpaper

Anything that draws your eyes upwards will make space feel significantly taller. Make sure the colour goes with the existing design of the room.

2. Place the furniture away from the walls

Having your furniture a few centimetres away will give you a sense of grand spaciousness. You could maybe add a console table behind the sofa as an additional place to add your plants or decorative items.

3. Choose a lighter colour of the floors and walls

Lighter colours reflect the light and make space feel much bigger. If you want to learn more about colours - take a look at the article Does the Colour of Your Walls Affect your Mood.
