Decorating small apartments are about light colors and functionality. Small apartment ideas emphasize an airy feel with light decor and wall painting. White walls or painted light neutral color, combined with open windows, help you to give that sense of bigger space and create a lovely background for showcasing antique wood ceiling beams and posts. Light paint colors and white paints are great for decorating small apartments and homes with old architectural frames, wooden ceiling and posts.

The small apartment ideas can increase the distance between the floor and the roof with vertical decorations. The wooden posts raise the ceiling, creating more spacious and airy rooms. Large furniture pieces are ideal for decorating small apartments and homes.

A large bed and a living room sofa make small rooms look bigger, comfortable and inviting. If you fill your small spaces with many small furniture pieces, it will result in the tiny, cluttered and busy rooms. A big piece of furniture that perfectly suits your small space, decorated with small accessories, compliment a small room and visually increase small spaces.
