Apartment kitchens can be so very small that only one person can be in the room at the same time. Keep counters washed off by putting small appliances, loaf of bread, chips, food and other items away in cupboards or the pantry if is available.
For additional safe-keeping and to keep carefully the clutter away look for cheap storage bins that can be used under the foundation, or purchase a coffee stand for the living room which has drawers underneath. This way you will keep all of those items you do not use often stored away and out of look until you will need them.
When decorating small rooms, you should always keep muddle to a minimum. Display only a few colorful accents and accessories to add depth and interest. Within the living room, a single large vase filled with fresh flowers, a huge candle and an individual print out or painting on one wall are you need to include color while keeping the area wide open and spacious.
