Condo living is awesome for so many reasons: it’s convenient, usually close to civilization, and relatively affordable. But that doesn’t mean that living in a small space doesn’t bring its own set of challenges — especially when it comes to decorating.
Configuring your studio apartment in a way that feels cozy, yet still spacious can be tough, but there are plenty of decorating hacks you can use to your advantage so the space flows. Here are 10 tricks for decorating a one-room apartment without breaking the bank.
1. Use mirrors to your advantage
The benefits of mirrors when it comes to maximizing the usable space in your condo can’t be stressed enough. They trick the eye into believing the room goes on forever, and depending on the frame you choose, they can really add personality to a home. Add a few decorative pieces in varying sizes to your walls and watch the space grow before your eyes.
2. Use light, airy colours
Decorating your room in a palette of whites, greys and light blues will give the room an open, relaxed feel, which will make your studio apartment feel much less tight and cramped.
