Small Apartment Decorating - Part 2
In the first part of this article we have written something about importance of home decorating with open mind, good measurements and some elements that could make the room and apartment bigger visually. One of these tricks is to use the right color. Which one we should choose in the small apartment?
At first we would say - use bright colors in everything that you can. That's probably the first that would come into our minds cause we all know that lighter color is the bigger something seems (every lady knows that and if she has to much pounds here and there she usually chooses darker colors in her clothes and accessories). But making it all light would destroy our harmony.
The solution in this situation is to use the same color in one room but in different tones. In example the wall with windows can be brighter and the one that is opposite darker what would make a great match. The basic rule when making a composition like that is to make a good dividing direction. If we use vertical stripes we would have a room that would higher.
When we choose colors and decorations we should remember to match the ornament with the surface measurements. That's why hanging a big painting on a wall in small room may make the room look smaller and heavy. That is why it is better sometimes to hand fewer smaller paintings in different colors but with the same motives than just one in dark.
Using big flower motives in whole apartment won't look good. Visually it will also make it look really small as the paintings wouldn't be made for it and naturally didn't match it. Something similar would go with the curtains that in small windows in small apartment would take all the light away. Instead it is better to install window shades and have a delicate hangings.
These are only small tips but makes a better vision and view what we should looking for when arranging small apartment.
