Make the most of your space

Living in the city has its advantages. Not only is it cheaper and more convenient, especially if you have a lock-up-and-go kind of lifestyle. However, it does also mean smaller living spaces which will require you to be smart when decorating so that you make the most of the space available without compromising on life’s luxuries.

Dual-purpose furniture

To really thrive in a small apartment or flat, you have to find intuitive ways of inventing storage space and then making it disappear into the background. There are plenty of ottomans and coffee tables that can provide extra storage space. Furniture retailers like Kist Company have many clever options when it comes to dual-purpose furniture that can stylishly fit into your living space.

Mount your TV on the wall

We all love a big screen TV, but at 40” and above they can become quite cumbersome. If you’re attached to your TV, then consider firmly attaching it to your wall with a proper mounting bracket. You can find these wherever TVs are sold or visit to Takealot will reveal a wide range of TV brackets to fit your needs.

Don’t be a hoarder

When you’re living in a small space, life should be about experiences and memories. The more stuff you own, the more stuffy your apartment is going to feel. At least once a year, the best thing you can do is gather up what you can live without and donate to those in need.

Your kitchen deserves the right fridge

If there is one appliance that dominates the kitchen it is the fridge. If space is a challenge, you need to find a brand of fridge that perfectly balances style with function. A combined fridge and freezer is the way rather than having two separate coolers.

Mirrors are magic

The key to more spacious living is the illusion of more space. Put a mirror on the wall or on a door and you will feel the room expand immediately. The trick is to angle your mirrors to give off the illusion of depth. Not only this, mirrors are good at reflecting both natural and artificial light, which will brighten up your apartment during the day.
