Don’t let a small space discourage you when looking for your next apartment. Additional space means nothing if it provides little function, which is why you’ll be amazed at what creative potential can be found in smaller living spaces. Even if your decorating options seem limited by landlord laws and rental agreements, here are some ideas that might make you rethink a space’s potential.
1. Consider Open Storage
If “limited” is a nice way of describing your kitchen storage space, opt for metal shelving units to give off a cool, industrial finish to your apartment. While it’s great for essentials like olive oil, fruit, and wine, a few decorative embellishments will really make the storage units serve both functional and decorative uses.
2. Mirror, Mirror on the Wall
Mirrors are a basic trick for any interior decorator to add more size and dimension to a room. Mirrors reflect light and make spaces feel bigger. Hang large mirrors across from windows in your apartment’s living room, dining room and other rooms so it’s in an ideal position to reflect light back into the room.
3. Mount your TV to the Wall
Maximize your space by hanging your TV from the wall. This allows you to use your console for more entertaining or storage space, in the area where your TV would have normally sat. This move also makes the TV area look less bulky.
4. Chic Dining
If you’re working with a really cramped dining nook, clear furniture and glass tables can make the space look less crowded. To visually expand the space even more, hang up some artwork and add wall-mount scones for lighting. Minimizing the amount of furniture and lighting on the ground space will maximize the room’s space.
5. Divide and Conquer
While this may seem counterintuitive, dividing up floor space into different zones may actually make your apartment seem larger. Use your sofa or consoles to act as “dividers” within a room and create different living spaces within one general room.

You Won’t Regret That Tattoo is a short doc by Angie Bird that “explores the meanings and memories behind the tattoos of an older generation, and challenges the belief that ink is something we will come to regret.”
In a scene usually reserved for TV, that one police officer described as “pretty gruesome,” three rival motorcycle gangs broke out the chains, knives and guns, and went to war Sunday afternoon in the parking lot of a Hooters-type restaurant in Waco, Texas. When the dust finally settled, nine bikers had been killed and at least 18 people had been taken to the hospital with a variety of gunshot and stab wounds.
