This post has been brought to you by Elma Humphries.

Decorating a small apartment can be a challenge, as you want to be able to live comfortably, but have limited space for appliances and furniture. However, there are some ways that you can integrate appliances and gadgets without causing your home to become cluttered.

The living room can be one of the most difficult rooms to decorate in a small apartment. A living room will normally contain large items, such as sofas and televisions. Fitting these items into a limited space can be a challenge. You will need to avoid buying excessively large furniture, but you should also be careful not to make the room cluttered by having too many small items. A simple sofa can be used for the main seating area, with some folding chairs for additional seating when you have visitors. These can easily be stored when not in use. A tall cabinet can be used to hold your television, stereo and books.

The kitchen can also cause difficulties, as it will need to house large appliances such as washing machine. You can integrate an efficient laundry appliance into your kitchen by covering the front with a cupboard and placing a work surface over the top. This is a good way to hide washing machines and other appliances, as they will still be easily accessible.

Storage can be a major issue when living in a small apartment, one solution is to choose a bed with storage drawers underneath. This could be useful for storing spare bedding and towels, as well as summer or winter clothes when they are not in use. You may want to consider buying some vacuum pack storage bags in order to make the most of your storage space. For the storage of bathroom items, you can choose a sink with a cupboard underneath, or you can buy an under-sink storage cabinet to fit under your existing sink.

When choosing the d├ęcor for your apartment, pale colors may be a good choice, as they can make the room appear bigger. You can also use mirrors to add light and give the illusion of space.

Decorating a small space can be a challenge, but there are design ideas and solutions that can help you to make the most of your living space.
