When you're looking at condos, you may feel that you're not getting enough space and wish that some of the rooms could be opened up. Fortunately, there are quick and simple ways to create larger spaces out of smaller ones through smart decorating. Here are some easy to implement and quick decorating tips that you can use to create larger spaces.

1. Look for multi-functional furniture

Less is more when it comes to decorating a condo. Ignore the bulky furniture pieces and look for multi-functional items that can serve more than one purpose. For example, a coffee table can also serve as a storage compartment if you find one that opens up. You can also purchase storage benches that have a multi-functional design. These benches come with a wall panel so that you can sit down, store items and make use of existing wall space.

2. Ignore dark colors

Dark coloured furniture or paint will tend to make the room look smaller. Search for light colours that will open up the room naturally and will also help to keep your mood on a high note.

3. Limit your accent pieces

The less clutter you have in a room, the more spacious and open it will seem. Try to keep the clutter to a bare minimum and only put out your favorite accent pieces. When you put pictures, statues, clocks and any other type of knickknacks on all of the horizontal open spaces on your furniture, a room can almost seem to cave in on itself. Limit the number of accent pieces in every room and you'll see an immediate difference.

These days there are great decorating tips available for people that choose to live in condominiums. As more and more potential home owners look at the possibility of purchasing a condo, interior designers are putting a lot more attention on creative decorating for smaller spaces.
