Apartment interiors can teach us much about designing for smaller spaces.  When you conduct most of your living in one room and have to get the most from less area, this teaches you the importance of space planning and editing. Granted, some apartments are quite generous of space.  Here is a selection of stylish apartment interiors to inspire you to achieve a greater understanding of space and how to effectively get the look you want.

Keep the color palette simple to gain visual space and take advantage of wall space.  Contrary to what many believe, a few large pieces of furniture take up less visual space than many smaller pieces.

This space boasts exceptional natural charm, thanks to the combination of an exposed brick wall and elegant wood flooring. Although compact in size, the area exudes a sense of openness and airiness. This spacious atmosphere can be attributed to the thoughtful use of a light color palette, as well as the incorporation of furniture featuring visible legs. Together, these design elements effectively enhance and expand the space.

On the opposite front, there’s nothing wrong with creating a very cozy space, as this one illustrates.  The black background of the area rug defines the space and the floral pattern adds a pop of color.

Don’t be afraid to use bold color and pattern in smaller spaces.  Again, including furniture pieces with visible legs opens up the space.  Dark walls here are accented with white curtain panels so the room still feels open and bright.

Kitchen, dining and living areas are all open in this space and a great flow is created with similar wood tones on cabinetry and furnishings.  Windows are left bare to take advantage of natural light.

There is much to do with smaller spaces typical of apartments.  Blending rooms seamlessly while defining spaces in an open plan can be accomplished with smart furniture arrangement.  Editing your decorative accents and using fewer large pieces versus many smaller pieces of furniture is key to successful space management.  The apartment can be a cozy or airy space that is stylish and comfortable.
