When decorating small rooms, you should always keep clutter to the very least. Display only a few colorful accents and accessories to add depth and interest. Inside the living room, an individual large vase filled up with fresh flowers, a huge candle and a single print or painting on one wall are you need to include color while keeping the region available and spacious.
Any room looks larger when it's filled with day light. Most apartments come equipped with mini window blinds, but if you would like to make the room look bigger there is a simple trick that actually makes windows show up larger. Hang a curtain pole that is about twice the width of the window; use light or brightly colored sheers that are taken back to both sides. You might hang the rod near the roof to give the impression of a tall window as well.
For additional storage area and to keep the clutter at bay look for clear plastic storage bins you can use under the foundation, or buy a coffee table for the living room that contains drawers underneath. In this manner you can keep all of those items you do not use often stored away and out of sight until you need them.
