Figuring out how to design a condo can be challenging, especially if it’s particularly small. Finding storage for all of your belongings, arranging furniture and decorating all of the rooms may seem overwhelming. Fortunately, there are many ways to create the interior of your dreams without making your small apartment look cluttered.


Accept The Floor Space That You Have

One of the issues of having small square footage is that there is less space available for things. It’s incredibly important to embrace the available space of your room and design your decor around that. After all, it’s impossible to add more room to your apartment, no matter how badly you may want to.


Save Small Space With An Island

In condo interior design, a kitchen will typically flow seamlessly into a living room. While this is great, it can minimize a dining area. If your condo has a kitchen island, we recommend that you stick to using that as your dining table instead of purchasing one. This will help your area feel spacious instead of crowded with pieces. Similarly, an island is very functional. It can serve both as a food-prep station as a central area for guests to gather around. Simply purchase some barstools to make your island the perfect spot to eat.



Design A Functional Living Space

The main goal of decorating a tiny space is to design it for living efficiently. This means selecting your living room furniture with great care. The living room is the one room that should be designed to be beautiful, cozy and have practical use.


A key way to balance use and comfort is to buy multi-purpose furniture. Multi-functional furniture like a sofabed can afford you a guest bedroom without the bigger real estate. A pull-out sofa bed is a good condo interior design hack for someone who hosts visitors often.



Another option is to skip the large sectional and buy accent chairs instead. Chairs take up little room and can be easily moved, allowing you to easily fit a coffee table, floor lamps or other items in the room. 


Tip: If you have white walls, feel free to choose a bold colour instead of natural/light colours for your pieces. This will contrast the paint colour and draw focus to your interior design - not the small room. These are great decorating tips to add depth and style to your interior design.



Feature Wall Space

Many renters forget that they have a plethora of untapped space in their small spaces: the walls! Floating shelves can add more space to your living area and provide the extra storage you desperately need. They can also be stylish when they are decorated with books, accessories, plants, mirrors and other items.

Don't be afraid to go all out. Wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling shelves are a great way to save space and create space for items that would otherwise clutter your condo floor space.
