Living in a small apartment becomes problematic when you try to decorate. Things look crowded and overbearing if not placed well. Whether it’s a small kitchen, bathroom, bedroom or laundry room, decorating a small space takes a delicate touch. Here are a few ways to decorate without suffocated the room.
Use a gallery shelf. Layer your artwork on the shelf above your bed or living room couch. By mixing larger and smaller pieces on a shelf, you add character to the room without losing much space. If you have a large wall, you can add multiple shelves and include vases or mirrors. Another option is adding a thin table with layered art. This works for a living room or hallway.
If you don’t have enough space on your wall, pick some unexpected spaces to display art. Hang art on a mirror or door. Hanging an image without a frame will give a clean aesthetic to the room, and keep both the door and the mirror functional.
Hang art as a high boarder around your room using matching frames for the pieces. If you have colorful walls, try black and white art – this will help the room appear more spacious. This trick works in different spaces like the kitchen and the bathroom.
Use large pieces of art in small spaces. Larger pieces are great for rooms that are predominantly white. Either over your desk or your bed, large art adds color and activity to the wall. If hanging a large piece is not an option, leaning a piece on a headrest or desk can add character and depth to a room as well.
Don’t forgo art, just get creative. Use these tips to help bring art into your space, and enjoy the new additions to your walls!
