Have you just moved into your first flat? Decorating your home is one of the most exciting parts of moving in somewhere new and if your flat is small and cosy, then you will want to try and make the most of the limited available space that you have. A beautiful living space does not need to have extremely high ceiling and a tonne of bedrooms and you can make even the tiniest of flats great when you are thoughtful with its design. Here, we are taking a look at how you can maximise the space in your small flat with interior design.
An easy way to create the feeling of more space in your home is to add mirrors. Mirrors create the illusion of more space and this is exactly what you will be looking to achieve in a smaller flat. Mirrors trick your eyes into thinking there is more space than there actually is. Add mirrors to bedrooms, hallways, living rooms and even on kitchen cabinets to create a bigger living space.
Bigger is Better
When you are dealing with a smaller space, it is a good idea to invest in a few larger pieces of furniture, rather than lots of smaller pieces. For example, instead of opting for several smaller chairs, why not instead get one large sofa? This will ensure that the space feels larger and grander than it really is!
Add Artwork to Your Walls
A great way to make the most out of your smaller flat is to add in some gorgeous artwork. Adding in some bright and colourful pieces can really open up a room by acting as the focal point and is a great conversation starter. Artwork provides that finishing touch to a home and adds your personality to it.

Add Clever Storage Space
Storage is one of the biggest things that can quickly take up room in what is already a limited space and so for this reason it is a good idea to add clever storage space. This is essentially creating storage space but without adding all of the extra bulk to the room. This can be opting for tall shelving units instead of wide shelf sets or purchasing furniture that includes hidden storage under it.
When you are working with a smaller space, it is important that you keep the same flow of consistency throughout the home. In a smaller space, you won’t need to sacrifice your personal taste, but you should try and ensure that it is more concise. Consistent themes throughout a small flat add calm and uniformity to a room and can make tiny space seem much more open.
