Small apartments are often dreaded, but they undeniably provide interior designers with the opportunity to get creative with less risk. However, they also require a lot more thought when choosing furniture and décor.
Most Americans aren’t comfortable living in a small apartment for the rest of their lives, but then again, times are changing. With new trends like the Tiny House Movement, homeowners are learning there’s a lot more to work with within a small space.
Take these tips into account when furnishing your small home in a Mid-century Modern style.
One accent piece per space
For each different space in your home, choose an accent piece to decorate around. A Saarinen table is pleasing in the kitchen or dining area, while the living room area would look great with a Knoll-style couch or an Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman combo along with a Noguchi or Barcelona Table.
Don’t forget the bedroom
The bedroom is a great room for trying new decor ideas. If your bedroom doesn’t have enough space for an armchair or lounge chair, you can also consider a floor lamp, a desk, or small mid-century modern cabinetry.
Have fun, enjoy your home
Don’t be afraid to try out different ideas while furnishing. If designers are always keen on the idea of having fun while doing it, you should too. A certain degree of play is required to create a great interior design.
