THE sky is literally the limit when it comes to small apartment ideas, and every inch matters.

Interior design is important due to the aesthetic value it possesses in a given space. It affects the quality of life and increases the value of a home.

A small residence that is well-designed through space-saving tricks can look more spacious than a big home with poor usage of space.

More than just choosing colours, lightings and selecting fabrics, all the details of the home, such as wall paint colours, whether to have blinds or curtains, types of furniture, accessories and room position are given due importance.

For instance, interior designers say to make the most of a small house, install floor-to-ceiling sheer curtains to make the space feel instantly larger and more impressive.

Home owners may want to invest in small furniture to make everything in the house appear harmonious rather than random. Use every surface and go for neutral wall colours.

For instance, a 859-sq-ft apartment unit at Berkeley Uptown Klang with

two bedrooms and two bathrooms can pack a powerful punch in more ways than one.


Play with lights: Track lights in the living room helps add a ton of light with a single install while pendant lights in the dining room provides a focus point and creates a feeling of intimacy.

Colour scheme: Choose colours wisely by going for lighter tones that will “open up” the space. White, cream and extremely light pastels will help create a bigger illusion. Keeping the ceiling and floor in similar colours ensures that we don’t “break up” the space.


Material: For small spaces, use mirrors, glass or transparent materials to give the illusion of more space.

Contrast: Using contrasts in the form of a feature wall or through the use of accessories and loose items, such as cushions and photo frames, adds visual interest and reduces monotony.

Geometry: With small spaces, curved furniture like circular tables and round ottomans can help open things up.

Built-in furniture: Built-in furniture against the wall will give impression of bigger space.
