Smaller homes often mean multifunctional open plan spaces, which is why it is vital to have cohesion between your decor and design in this room. It often means included your living, dining and kitchen into one zone, and it may also mean incorporating laundry appliances into the layout. Light colours and sophisticated design is the perfect fit.

2. An accent colour

Neutral colours can be paired with an accent shade for a dramatic and quirky design that fits the personality of a young professional. This living room definitely has an eye-catching and eclectic decor element.

3. Lighting placement

Just when you thought all is lost for decor in your small modern apartment, you thought about the best lighting to upgrade your home. Light up each and every corner with some stylish hanging globes and double the illumination with a magnificent mirror.

4. Custom-made

Include furniture that serves more than one function into your decor and you'll always have enough space to store your essentials without impacting on the free flowing floor plan. This may just need to be custom-made so you get something to suit your exact needs.

5. Ceiling height

A high ceiling has a dramatic elegance that best suits a modern home, so whether it be a suspended storage or even unique lighting, you have a lot more scope than the ordinary low ceilings that contemporary homes generally include. 

6. Functional space
