So, when it comes to apartment decorating ideas, space is paramount - even down to the size of the furniture and any patterns used when decorating: it all matters and nothing should be left to chance. One way of making every inch count is to combine furniture with multiple utilities: buy a desk which, when you need to sleep, easily converts itself into a bed. This isnt as far-fetched as it sounds. The 2009 Ideal Home Exhibition at Earls Court, London is currently advertising a piece of furniture which does exactly that. At face value, it certainly isnt a cheap option but, when you consider how effective and efficient it is, it is actually an economic solution. This particular piece of furniture is manufactured in a wood composite for durability, cleverly veneered for a lovely finish.
When the bed is folded away, the piece of furniture looks exactly as a desk. When the function needs to change and the bed needs to be used, you simply pull down the bed which folds down, and the desk slots back into the recess previously occupied by the bed. The charm of this system is that the bed is packed away readily made up for use and, when the desk needs to be put away, it glides backwards so that any items currently in use on the desk can stay exactly where they are: they will not be disturbed. The whole system runs on a cleverly hidden hydraulic unit so that you only need to use one hand to pull the bed down or push the desk backwards. For apartment decorating ideas, this piece of furniture, and others like it, is absolutely ingenious.
After you figured out what your essential activities are, you are ready to start going furniture shopping. Try to find pieces of furniture that serve two uses. Storage ottomans are a terrific example, because you can sit on them, use them as a coffee table, and also store things out of sight. Wall shelves and containers are very useful because you may be tight on shelf space and youre certainly tight on floor space. If you are buying a bed, seriously consider the kinds of beds but you can store things under. Finally, try to go for height -- floor-to-ceiling shelving has made the difference in many small apartments and dorm rooms.
