Now back to tips for decorating small spaces. One of the foremost things to remember is to use lighter pastel wall shades, as these make small space feel larger, more breathable, comfortable and enjoyable to stay in. This helps to give the room a bigger and wider look. Shades of lighter grey, cream or ivory will definitely be a better option. Moreover, the window curtains, if there is a window should also be of a lighter shade and softer texture. Such a selection will give the smaller room a lighter and freer/fresher look. Likewise, the use of accents in smaller apartments must harmonize with the surrounding furniture and décor. Specially designed smaller unit furniture is widely available and that should assist in the right choice. However, a petite love sofa or a slim upholstered futon with cuddly cushions would fit right. Petite vase or a flower decoration, fresh or seasonal flowers are preferred than artificial ones to add a breeze of freshness to your home. Or you could also opt for hanging flower pots or hanging decorations, which add more depth to your living space. That would help make most of the ceiling and reduce crowding of the floor space as well. On the other hand, having mirrors on the walls placed in parallel or otherwise shapes can act as enhancers of space. In order that a smaller unit looks neat and tidy, importance of the use of storage is vital. It is highly advisable to go for compact coffee table that has at times a little storage capacity. It can be used two ways. One, for putting sweet scented candles coupled with coffee arrangement for two. Secondly, it helps to keep the paper clutter in place, thus reduces the tabletop stuff. Similarly, having a corner side high lamp for necessary light effects adds to the charisma of the setting. Smaller apartment décor is also an art, anyone can grasp, with little skills.
