Small is a very subjective description. What is small to one person can be big to another.

If you happen to feel that you condo in Destin may be a little snug, no need to worry! There are many way to make it feel bigger.

Consider these tips for decorating your apartment in Destin to make it feel more spacious.

  1. Vertical Storage

When space is small, storage room is necessary. Whether we like it or not, we need to store some things just in case they will be needed, especially essential items like food and clothing.

When space is limited, you can opt to go vertical by purchasing furniture like book cases or installing shelving. This will not only give you more floor space but allow you to store more things.

2. Go Monochrome

It is better to go monochrome for your color scheme.

Multiple colors in a room can make the room feel smaller but colors in the same color palette can create the optical illusion of more space.

3. Install Mirrors

Mirrors bounce light around a small room making it look larger. They also reflect the space so it seems like you are seeing double the area.

This type of furniture is ideal if you want to make your Destin home look bigger. Plus it multitasks (see #5) so mirrors are a definite plus.

4. Same Flooring

Link the different rooms of your beach condo with the same flooring. This will produce a more cohesive effect while making rooms look adjoined and therefor bigger.

If possible, choose 1 type of flooring for your condo in Destin.

5. Multi-Tasking Furniture

When you don’t have enough space, you may not have enough room to put in all the furniture you want.

If you’re going to use the floor space for furniture, you should consider multi-tasking furniture. For example, your ottoman can double as storage for your books or knickknacks.

You can opt for a sofa bed that can also be used as a guest bed so that you can have friends over in your condo in Destin.


  1. Switch To Floor Lamps

Table lamps can take up precious table space while floor lamps can sit in corners or behind furniture.

Light from floor lamps shine upward and not downward, thereby creating more light and will help to visually expand your room.

  1. Customize

You can’t always expect that your large furniture will fit into your Destin condo unit.

For your furniture to fit properly in a small space, it may need to be customized.

Customizing furniture will also help you maximize space.

  1. Conceal

A small space can feel claustrophobic if you can see everything.

To prevent this, you can conceal storage spaces to make your Destin apartment look neat and cohesive.

You can invest in lidded bins and baskets to store things under the bed or use curtains to conceal shelving.

  1. Minimize

For a small beach house in Destin, you need to think like a minimalist.

Remember that less is more so if you don’t need it, it probably should not be there.

  1. De-Clutter

A small space should look neat to make it look bigger. Don’t let clutter get ahead of you in your small house in Destin. Always de-clutter and pick up after yourself. Ask yourself if you used an item in the last 6 months. If not then minimize, de-clutter and get rid of it.

Considering these 10 techniques can make your Destin home or condo seem bigger. Remember that you don’t need to feel cramped inside your apartment. There are many solutions to making your space feel roomy and comfortable. All it takes is a bit of research and patience to get the look you want.
