Apartments of 20, 30, 40, or 45 m2 have certain advantages that larger ones can’t offer: lower rent, they are usually in more centric areas, they do not require a large budget to decorate them and, above all, they possess an undeniable cozy charm.
If you have made the decision to start a new life in one of these mini apartments, here we introduce you several tips and ideas to turn your little house into a great home.
1. Functionality or Style?
The first doubt that arises when we move into a mini apartment is: functionality or style? This question can’t be further from reality. You don’t have to choose just between those two options. The key is to merge both and get the most out of the available space in your home, while creating corners with style and full of personality.

2. Soft and Light Colours
To create a sense of spaciousness in your home, we recommend the use of soft colours such as white , light gray , or beige as the predominant tones in your decoration. The clear walls will attract natural light and will fill the room with clarity, creating an effect of visual amplitude for small-sized rooms.
If you want to break the homogeneity of the space, you can create a very original contrast using furniture in pastel colours or accessories such as cushions, blankets or paintings in darker tones.
Storage is one of the main issues when it comes to small spaces. If you have high ceilings, make the most out of them by placing shelves or drawers, which will allow you to store objects that you may not use regularly, such as a beloved book collection or simple decorative elements to add an original touch to your decoration.
In case you don’t have enough space for a normal-sized closet, you can use a small chest of drawers beside your bed, which will serve both to place decorative objects and to store clothes. Open cabinets or coat racks are a very trendy solution, which allows you to keep your clothes well organized and give a personal touch to any room.

4. Room Separation
Although your apartment is a loft or has only one room, you can always choose different elements to separate environments and create cozier spaces. Screens , curtains, shelves, even interior windows, will help you divide your space and create corners with style where you can enjoy a little more privacy.
