How To: Decorate your First Tiny Apartment
Moving into your first apartment is such an exciting and fun time! Although usually your space is very limited, you still want to make it feel like a home - after all, this is where you will be spending every morning and night. The most important thing you can do is KEEP IT SIMPLE! Read on for our best advice to do just that!
Keep only what you actually wear and use! Those pairs of shoes you haven’t worn in years? Gone! The little knick knacks you save in drawers for no reason? No way! Clutter is stressful. Remember, you have minimal space, so taking the necessities is what matters and will keep you more organized. You’ll be thankful later.
3. Wall Decor
Many places you cannot paint, but if you’re looking for a touch of color or a fun design, check out my latest discovery Tempaper! This temporary wallpaper is like a giant sticker that simply peels on and off your walls, and it comes in tons of colors and patterns. It makes an excellent focal point behind your bed.
4. Floating Shelves
Shelves are necessary in any room due to their versatile functionality. Not only do they function as decor, but also can serve as a statement storage piece. Floating shelves don’t take up any additional counter or floor space!
6. Think Vertical
Save space by using tall furniture. For example, rather than a typical nightstand, a tall shelving unit functions as the perfect replacement. This also applies to storage pieces. You will get more use out it because you are taking up wall space rather than floor space.
