Decorating in small spaces means weighing your choices carefully
Apr 20 2011
If you've recently moved into an urban apartment, you're probably coming to terms with the lack of space. Interior designer Tessa Roulston has decorated her fair share of small apartments and she believes that the best way to create a homey space is to blur the line between where the home begins and ends, according to the Melbourne Leader.
Choosing the perfect furniture and window treatments will help to open up your apartment's traffic flow.
Roulston believes that the repurposing of everyday materials such as ottomans and dinner tables is an efficient way to save space.
"We have to think of other things such as having the dining room table double as an island bench," Roulston told the news source.
While clever use of furniture is essential, Roulston thinks that healthy amounts of natural light can be truly beneficial for a space. Window treatments, draperies and curtains are cost-effective improvements that will help control air leakage and instantly improve the apartment's aesthetic.
Wood blinds offer a timeless look that have the ability to work in any setting. The grainy design will provide warmth to your living space and will help to cut down on glare and air leakage.
