16 Interior Design Ideas for Your Condo

With people flocking to the cities, condos are popping up everywhere, day-by-day. Being smaller than single-family homes, decorating condos can be tricky since there is less space to work with. Here are some simple condo interior decorating tips and design ideas that can take your condo from boring to utterly your own!


There's a good chance your condo in the city lacks access to trees, plants, and nature as a whole. To bring a little bit of country into your city condo, invest in plants for your patio and indoors. If you're not big on keeping plants alive, look for succulents or plants that don't need watering often. You can also invest in artificial plants, so you have those little bursts of green around your condo without the hassle of watering. Fresh flowers from your local farmer's market can also do the trick!

Using a new pair of drapes or curtains can make your condo stand out. There are tons of styles and patterns of drapes, like embroidered, patterned, elegant, and eclectic. Dark-colored drapes can block sunlight when necessary and also add a stylish look to the home. Before purchasing, make sure the color of the drapes complements the wall color. Curtains shouldn't be the focal point of the room, but merely a nice addition.thick drapes in a living room

Furniture Accessories

Accessories can step up your style game in a condo. Space is the main issue, and the key to solving that problem is finding the best layout for your furniture and accessory items. Creativity is your friend when it comes to accessory styling.

Large wall mirrors can help make your condo look bigger when placed on walls that have good natural light. Mirrors also add a look of sophistication into a room.

Other ways to save space can be hanging bookshelves, that still allow you to display your books and accessories while also preserving floor space. Additionally, you can mount your tv to the wall or above the fireplace. Entertainment centers can be huge and bulky, take them out of the equation, and you have a lot more room to work with.


Paint can be another element that broadens the space of a condo. Soft and vibrant colors can give a warm feeling. Painting your ceiling a darker shade to provide a sense of height. Vertical stripes on wallpapers and curtains will also give off the impression of taller ceilings. Windows will also make or break a room. You can add space and match the colors of your walls with the curtains to help them blend and create more space. The continuity in color will enlarge the look of the room.


Natural lighting and an airy feel can have lots of added benefits in your home. Starting your morning in a bright and sunny room can already lift your spirits before you even leave the house.

Utilizing Space with Furniture

Keeping your small space clean is, above almost all decorating ideas, the best way to make your condo look good. You will feel better when your home is clean, and it will look better, too!

When picking out your furniture, make sure to have specific reasons for your pieces. You want to avoid having too much furniture, especially if it isn't functional. Simple designs with dark colors have been known to make the room feel bigger. Minimalistic decorations are always suitable for small rooms. White and soft pastels are vital to your decor elements like paint, furniture, and accessories. Another tip for your living room furniture is to pull your pieces away from the wall a few inches to give off a look of more space.

Translucent materials will also help with openness. Glass coffee tables and side tables give off the illusion of more room. Wood or marble-like materials will make the room feel more weighty. Metallic or mirrored pieces also will reflect light and bring in space.living room with large sliding glass patio door and glass coffee table with lots of natural light


An element to step up your decor game is wallpaper. A wallpaper accent wall or wallpapered hallway can be precisely what your condo needs. You can add a touch of extravagance in a smaller space without it feeling as overwhelming as a larger space. Do an accent wall in the living room or bedroom behind the couch or bed, respectively. A hallway is a great place to experiment with fun styles because they are a smaller area that you don't spend a lot of time in.

Wallpaper can express more in one item than a whole gallery wall. Choose a pattern or design that best suits your room, theme, color palette, and personality. Limitless Walls provides you with removable wallpaper that can be removed and applied easily.
