With the right types of decorating tips and methods, you can turn even the smallest of rooms into an organized and comfortable space. To decorate your apartment with style, use these small room decorating ideas below.

Small Room Decorating Ideas for the Living Room

The right colors and decorating tricks can help to expand the feel of a small apartment living room and bedroom. Small room decorating ideas that will transform the space within bedrooms and living areas include:

  • Using light colored furniture, area rugs and curtains – whites and light earth tones with subtle browns and yellows will make the room appear larger. Darker colors, particularly reds and blacks will make the room appear smaller than it really is.
  • The height of a small room will appear higher when decorated with curtains which stretch from the top of the curtain rod down to the floors.
  • Minimizing decorations will reduce a cluttered appearance. Instead of placing multiple decorations or knickknacks on each wall, try to use only one picture as the focal point of the room. If shelves are in the room, leave plenty of bare spaces on the shelves to enhance the impression of space.

Small Room Decorating Ideas for the Kitchen

As with the living room and bathroom, the kitchen will look its best if it is decorated with light colors such as soft yellows, light greens or pale peach shades. Decorations in the kitchen should be kept to a minimum to reduce clutter – but you can use specific colors and styles of appliances, dishes, and even pots and pans to sprinkle your own style throughout your kitchen. For example – if you enjoy an old fashioned look go for copper pots and pans and vintage styled appliances or for a contemporary kitchen look stick with cool stainless steel appliances and cookware created with clean modern lines.

Small Room Decorating Ideas for the Bathroom

In the small bathroom the ‘light color’ decorating trick to enhance the impression of space is as important as ever. Try to avoid dark colors of any kind – instead go with light cool blue décor, white walls and perhaps a few towels in soft pastels to add a little pop. Additional small room decorating ideas for the bathroom include: using wall hooks instead of shelves to free up wall space, stowing all toiletries in cabinets when not in use to reduce clutter and using bright white lights to stop dim corners from shrinking the room.
