- rule Set up # 1 for small rooms: Make the most of space
There are places in every home that are difficult to use. For example, directly in front of the window or in a niche, above or below the stairs, etc. You have to focus your attention on such places and decide what to do with it. Can you put a sleeping bed there and create a corner for reading and lazing around? Or do you have little space next to the kitchen, where you can only put a dining table and a few chairs. Or in the small kitchen, it would be best to get hold of open shelves. You can arrange a lot of things there and have them always at hand.
Open shelves are a must in the small kitchen.
- rule Set up # 2 for small rooms: Order and clarity are very important here
A lot of problems are avoided when there is the best order in the home. Create enough storage space in your small apartment and make sure that the unusable stuff is stowed away there. Do not leave items of clothing and shoes lying around, as they disturb the view and create a feeling of dissatisfaction and in many cases even anger. You first have to accept that you don’t have a lot of living space and keep trying to make the most of the small spaces.
Sufficient storage space is the basis for the best order, even in small rooms.

- rule Set up # 3 for small rooms: design individual zones
In a 1-room apartment you should first consider your needs and priorities and only then move on to furnishing the room. Our tip is: design individual zones that fit into a common living concept. When designing them, you can think about room dividers that separate the individual areas from each other visually and functionally. So you don’t have to forego anything and treat yourself to cosiness even in a small area. It is best to get multifunctional furniture that can be easily moved or converted. An armchair on wheels, for example, that turns into a bed in no time at all.
There is always space for a home office, even with an open living concept.

- rule Set up # 4 for small spaces: light color must be your first choice
When designing small apartments, colors play a crucial role. It is well known that light pastel shades visually enlarge small spaces. In this regard, you have a wide range of options to choose from. The classic would be to design the small room entirely in white, which gives you a sense of space. Then the room doesn’t feel cramped and overland. To help you overcome the monotony, you can allow yourself some color accents. These are always useful because they are eye-catching and bring a personal flair to small rooms.
Follow the rules outlined above for setting up small spaces and you will create a cozy home on a small floor space. The Trendomat editorial team wishes you a lot of fun!
