Smart furniture choices
In her 56m2 home, @shoebox.designs knew choosing right-sized furniture was essential. This small sofa in the living room is only 158cm wide, but deep enough so there’s no sacrifice on comfort.
The other elements in the room, including the orange armchair, dark wood accents and stunning gallery wall, prove that even a small living room can be brimming with rich, vintage style.
Colourful and compact
Make a big statement in your small apartment living room with plenty of bright colours, like this example from @the_flat_that_rosie_built.
If your rental agreement prohibits painting the walls or changing the flooring, there are still plenty of opportunities to add colour with throw pillows, furniture, rugs and artwork. The blanket ladder is a great way to store extra throws without taking up too much space.
It’s tempting to limit the amount of stuff in a small space, but that’s not always necessary. There’s no reason your small apartment shouldn’t match your maximalist style.
This bold living room by @thefrankiedlc features dark walls, neon trim, a bright pink sofa and even a mini refrigerator. But thanks to the clever layout, the room feels welcoming and cosy instead of cramped.
