SMALL SPACE DECORATING IDEAS: A DREAMY SWEDISH APARTMENT IN STOCKHOLM
We have been living in our tiny home for over 10 years, therefore we know a thing or two about how to decorate a small apartment!
It’s so easy to clutter your space with unnecessary items, but when you have only 40 square meters (430 square feet) like in this flat in Stockholm to live in, you really need to be careful about what you buy.
But what if I told you it was possible to live in a wonderful small space without compromising on life quality?
This dreamy Swedish apartment has the perfect balance between design and functionality.
And in this post, I will show you exactly what tricks they have used to do just that.
How To Decorate Small Spaces
Avoiding curtains or using light shades really helps to maximize lighting, making the room feel bigger.
Choosing larger rugs really helps to make a room feel bigger. Unlike smaller rugs, this large size rug doesn’t visually break up the floor. Large rugs also help to make the space feel warmer and cozy.
Choosing stackable stools that you can just leave in the corner of the room, give you plenty of seating options for when you have friends around.
Go vertical: use your walls for storage as much as you can. Go for high wall cabinets for your kitchen and utilize extra tall units as much as you can.
Choose lighting that can be attached to the walls (like with this beautiful wall-mounted lamp) or hung from the ceiling to save room on floor space.
Turn window sills into usable space. Here they have been used throughout the apartment to hold table lamps, without the need for extra furniture on the floor.
Mirrors create the illusion of more room and they are great in small hallway to give you the sensation of more light.
A little trick to make your room feel as big as possible is to hang your curtains as high as you can. This will make the room feel taller, giving you the sensation of a bigger room.
Smart furniture always helps with decorating small spaces. Make sure you have plenty of under bed storage. Don’t leave all the space below your bed unutilized!

Having a consistent color palette will really help a small apartment feel bigger. Try to keep things light, and if you like bold colors, use them in furniture.
This is a perfect small living space, don’t you think?
Interior design is one of my biggest passion. I really think living in a place you love, helps your happiness. But for me, having a beautifully designed home doesn’t mean spending a lot of money on it. I will never suggest you to over-spend on a furniture item. You can still achieve beautiful design on a small budget.
