Hot Trends to Make the Most of Apartment Living

Hot Trends to Make the Most of Apartment Living

If you currently live in an apartment or are looking for an apartment to live in, it may seem like there are limited options in terms of decorating and space. However, there are some great trends that are on the rise in the housing industry that can transform the feel of your home. When looking at apartments for rent in Montreal, keep these hot trends in mind when selecting the space that is right for you. 

Miniature Wall Dividers

If you’re living in a small apartment, it may seem as if there is no separation between the different “spaces.” The bedroom, living and kitchen areas can mesh into one another and seem suffocating. Adding full walls can make a small apartment seem smaller but by installing partial walls, you can give the illusion of separation without cutting off the flow of the room.

Merged Living Spaces

Unless you are living on your own, it is unavoidable that you will need to merge living spaces.  For downtown Montreal apartments, open-concept designs that are decorated with clean, minimalistic accents will help to keep the apartment from feeling overly stuffed with multiple people’s belongings.


Apartments are not usually overflowing with space but one way to increase the surface area for decorating is to take advantage of bookshelves. Bookshelves of varying sizes can be added to almost any room to use for storage and décor. The best thing about a bookshelf is how many different types are available – you will find one to fit your space and your personal style preferences.

Eco-Friendly Features

Just because you live in an apartment doesn’t mean you cannot make changes towards living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle. Some easy changes you can make include eco-friendly light bulbs, window treatments, water faucets and appliances. 

Vertical Space

Vertical space can open the possibilities of design and décor in your apartment home. Loft areas are the perfect example of how to make the most of vertical space. These areas can be used as a bedroom or office area to free up living space on the main floor.
