Some people prefer living in a house and some prefer in an apartment. Both can be as comfortable as what has been expected if we consider several important things for the interior. The following are several considerations we should take if we want to create a functional and interesting apartment interior design.
- Needed rooms. Make a list of what spaces you need in your apartment interior, say, a living room, a dining room, a bedroom, a workroom, and a kitchen Since an apartment usually has a limited space, you should make sure that you have multifunctional rooms in the interior design. For example, the workroom can be combined with the dining room; the living room corner can be used as a study space. An open layout between one room and another can also be used as a smart alternative. In addition, the size of the furniture should be adjusted to the size of the entire room. If you have a fairly small room, choose furniture which is not too wide and taking too much space.
- Interior color. Wall colors and patterns are also a key in dealing with a small space apartment. Bright colors would look nice for a small apartment. Color accents can be applied to one side of the wall so that the room can be more attractive and interesting. The use of large mirrors can also help make the room seem more spacious. All of those good effects are supported by good lighting, which can be either natural lighting or artificial lighting such as table lamps, hanging lamps, chandeliers, standings lamp and dowlight.
- Furniture effectiveness. Try not to use and display a lot of furniture, simply choose the functional one. Choose everything thoroughly. In addition, you can optimize several areas as storages spaces, such as the space under bed (under bed storage). The other method is to make cabinets with a full height from the floor up to the ceiling. With this vertical approach, every space can function more optimally.
- Occupants’ characters. The characters and habits of the occupants can affect the apartment’s appearances in terms of the organization, cleanliness, and neatness. If the occupants are very consumptive and a bit careless, the interior design itself would find a difficulty to give its best look.
