When decorating an apartment, general knowledge can only get you so far. Whether you're moving into a new home or changing up your current one, the process should be creatively fulfilling and enjoyable. For that, you need some design tips that go beyond what you've heard on TV.

Replacing Furniture

Time to get rid of all of the junk you've accumulated over the years. Especially as a young person, it's important to swap the old furniture and d├ęcor that you've been using since you moved out for some new stuff. Additionally, you need all the space you can get.

Know what you use

Do you actually eat at your dining table, or does your kitchen bench get all the use? You need to be realistic about what you are getting out of your furniture, this way you can make the most efficient use of each room.

Colour schemes

If you only have a few rooms in your apartment to work with, give each one its own distinct personality. Start with picking colour schemes, so when you move from one room to the next, each space feels clearly defined, from the walls to the furniture.

Furniture sizing

This is where experience really comes in handy. Buy furniture that is the right size for a small space. This requires a lot of measuring, planning and an understanding of how to create a flow within a space. You want to fit enough into the space, but you also want to avoid overcrowding it.

Multi- functional pieces are the key

You've heard it time and time again when talking about space efficiency, invest in furniture that has multiple functions to save space. There are a few ways to do this by working with what you already own. One of the best ways to do this is to ensure that you take advantage of vertical space. The use of pieces such as shelves will give you more space to work with.
