Thoughtful decor will create an impression of spaciousness in a small apartment.

There are some clever tricks that are very useful in this regard.

For example, using large mirrors will make the rooms appear larger.

Use Smaller Furniture

One of the best ways to make a small apartment look neat is to use small, light furniture. Avoid heavy, dark-coloured furniture at all costs.

Smaller furniture allows for more space for movement.

Choose low seats over traditional heavy sofa sets. This gives the illusion of a spacious room with a casual look.

A good idea is to use wrought-iron furniture. They come in many forms and are quite versatile based on the layout of your apartment.

Wrought-iron furniture does not look heavy.

Using large mirrors will help the room appear larger visually. Placing mirrors opposite windows will reflect light and the room will appear bright and large.

Mirrors with trendy designs can be style statements too.

Use ample lighting along with the mirrors so that the room appears dazzling.
