Most apartments have a living room with no windows, so they only get natural light from the front and back rooms. So, if you want to set up a separate room, please consider a design that doesn’t block natural light.

Then, to make it look more attractive, you can add a long sofa, a small round table, a wall shelf, and a television. With the addition of furniture like this, your small apartment design will look more attractive.
Create a contrasting apartment design
The simplest way to design this one living room is to use an accent wall and large glass windows. If you can’t paint the walls of your apartment, look for removable wallpaper to change the color of the walls without damaging them. However, if you don’t want to change the look of the walls, design them with attractive wooden decorations.
To appear brighter, use window film on the glass window. That way, the sunlight will easily enter the room. Then, add a sofa set, a dining table and chairs, spotlights on the ceiling, and decorative lights to beautify the living room design. That way, your living room will look neat and bright.
Choose furniture with dual functions
Every inch of a small apartment deserves consideration. Maximize the space in your tiny apartment by choosing multifunctional furniture that can play a double role. For that, please choose modern furniture. That way, you can save a lot of space in the small apartment.
We recommend applying double-role furniture that can be used for sleeping. To organize it, you can start with a bed that can be folded into a seat.

Vertical storage concept
When you choose furniture for storage, you must choose a vertical shape or extend upwards. The vertical storage model is the best space-saving solution, especially for small apartments that lack space. Then, maximize the walls of the room with the ceiling by building wall shelves in the apartment. Don’t forget a few touches of cozy apartment-style decor, such as warm and attractive wicker baskets, wall hangings, and ornamental plants. That way, the interior design of your room will look aesthetic.

After that, make sure you also create a habit of returning things to their original position. In this way, you will get convenience when you need the item.
