Limited space is clearly one of the major concerns when it comes to decorating an apartment. Ideally, when it comes to decorating, maximizing the amount of space available would need to be one of the first priorities, with adequate storage solutions running a close second. Apartment decorating ideas which are able to incorporate both space saving and storage solutions would clearly be worth their weight in gold. Part of the problem, when it comes to the majority of apartment complexes, is the number of units that are packed in as close together as possible in order to maximize rental potential.
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.
Apartments that need decorating may be limited in size but never forget they also have height and this is something that can be very successfully utilized when it comes to furnishings such as an entertainment centre, or a desk for your home office equipment. Drop leaf tables, or tables which have additional leaves that drop into the middle of a dining table, have been around for generations. There are now many dining tables on the market which can be fitted against a wall, with a drop-down leaf that can be released when not in use. Conversely, another innovation is the dining table into which two chairs can be slotted when not in use - certainly my choice if I was in the position where I needed to conserve space.
