A small bedroom can feel claustrophobic, be less than ideal and can make you feel like you can’t decorate your space the way you would want to. But with a bit of strategic styling can completely change the space without having that “stuffy” feel most small bedrooms are known to have. Here are design solutions that will bring your small bedroom back to life.
Built-in shelving or bedroom furniture is perfect for added storage without taking up much space. Pair with simple décor for the maximum coverage of the space while still having sensible decorative pieces. It also creates a simple atmosphere.
Skip the headboard
We are all well-aware of how beautiful a headboard can be. However, for a smaller space skipping having a headboard could be just what the room needs to feel bigger. Instead of having a headboard consider working on creating a bed that flows with the space to create a seamless decorative feel.
Choose a Daybed
If you live in a small apartment or your bedroom is smaller than you would like, you may want to use a daybed that transforms into a couch when put together. Doing so creates a multitasking effect that also works for saving space.
Bright, bold colors can make a small bedroom have a grander impact. Doing so brings that daring effect that also allows the room to make the impact it would if it was a lot bigger. Stay away from darker hues as they have a shrinking effect.
Sconces are smaller and can be placed anywhere. Which is exactly what you want to use instead of lamps. Lamps take up a lot of space which is not as great when you have a smaller space. Consider using mount lights on your headboard or even close to the bed to allow light to come in without any use of lamps.
We love mirrors for any room, but especially in smaller rooms due to their ability to draw in light f rom multiple different angles. Add them around for that brightening effect that brings everything together while still providing a visual expansion.
Amp up the cozy appeal for a well-rounded aesthetics that brings about a grand effect. Use a darker hue on the walls for that symbol of cozy and pair it with lighter hues for a cozy feel that does not take the life away from the room or make it look smaller.
Take your space and have a pattern that is repeated throughout the space, multiple different times from the walls, to your décor. Bringing that common denominator in the room to make a big impact without taking away from the space.
Keep it Simple
Keeping it simple is an excellent way to avoid over cluttering the space and taking away from the square footage. Keep it simple by only using the décor pieces that you need not addition furniture that will only take away from the space. Furthermore, you want to add pieces that brighten up the room while still keeping it versatile.
Use wallpaper as a bold feature. Instead of just using one shade on your walls for a pop of color, use a daring wallpaper that brings personality without taking away from the size of the room. Furthermore, a bold wallpaper brings that focal point to the room.
Place your bed against a window
Lighting is important. Therefore, taking as much natural light as possible is great to keep your bed right against the window to bring a more well-rounded environment. Skip the headboard to create an airy space.
A small room doesn’t mean you can’t have what you want in it, it simply means you will have to readjust the space. Which of these ideas will you be using in your bedroom? Share with us below.
