Colors always give an illusion of space or lack of it and, in order to make the most of apartment decorating ideas, the last thing you want is to choose the wrong color or wrong shade, with the result that your lovely, newly-decorated apartment appears to be much smaller than before you started. Stick with pastels, or pales hues, which will catch any available light and give the space you do have a lift. Carrying on with this theme, place mirrors around the apartment to reflect as much light as possible. Use mirrors as accent pieces and you will be pleasantly surprised at the success of your apartment decorating ideas and the warm vibrancy of the resultant finish.
Once you have your basic furniture selected and youve decided where it looks best, you can go shopping for any new pieces of furniture you need. Each apartment has a different layout and will end up with odd spaces that are begging for the right furniture to fill it. If youre on a budget, shop the sales. Get the best piece of furniture you can afford and resist the temptation to buy a cheap piece of furniture. It wont last and it will just cost you more in the long run when you have to replace it with something new. Theres always a temptation to forego decorating because you dont own the space. That may sound logical, but it means your house will never become a home. If you have a good relationship with your landlord, see if you can do a little painting. Otherwise, add artwork to the walls to make them less sterile. Youll be amazed how a little lighting, art and accessorizing will not only make your walls warmer, but make your furniture look more inviting to visitors.
So, how do you make it all work? Well one of the major keys to apartment living is to look into the market of the small table. You are going to need a table in most every room of the home.

A key when you are shopping for apartment furniture is to make sure you get a small table for each of these rooms. Here are some tips to make sure the table you get is a small enough table for this space:
