Just because you have a small bedroom doesn’t mean you have to settle for a cramped space with blas? decor. After all, your bedroom should feel like an oasis, no matter how tiny it is. With the right small bedroom design, you can make any space feel larger and more welcoming.
That said, the more limited the space, the more careful you must be with how you fill it.
Here’s a list of small bedroom decor tips that’ll turn your bedroom into a cozy haven.
Go for Light and Bright
The colors you choose for your bedroom are powerful. Dark colors will make your space feel closed in and even cramped while lighter colors create the illusion of more space. So, opt for colors that emphasize a sense of airiness and spaciousness.
If you’re jonesing for a pop of color, consider an accent wall in a rich shade or wallpaper design. But make sure the rest of your hue choices work to counteract the effect of the accent wall. The predominant colors in your small bedroom layout should be light and bright.
Bedroom Furniture for Small Rooms
It shouldn’t come as a shocker that a king-size or queen-size bed will make your bedroom look smaller than it is. You need to consider furniture proportions when outfitting your tiny home’s bedroom. Besides chucking the oversized bed, look for innovative furniture designs that can help you conserve space.
For example, look for a bed with storage drawers along the base or use under-bed storage containers to free up extra room. If you must have a desk in your room, opt for a corner piece near the bed that can serve the dual purpose of a nightstand.
Other great pieces include built-in bookshelves for extra storage space, a set of nesting tables, and a daybed, which can do double duty as a couch during the day. There are even bed raising systems that can be installed allowing you to raise and lower your bed above a living room sectional that can also be converted into a second bed for guests.
Visually Expand Your Space
From mirrors that create the illusion of space to trompe l’oeil-inspired wallpaper, you can expand your room using simple visual tricks. Strategically placed mirrors not only give you a place to check your appearance, but they instill your bedroom with an expansive, open quality. There’s no faster way to feel like you have more space than by installing a few of them.
Trompe l’oeil-inspired wallpaper can also do wonders for a small space. And you don’t have to convince people there’s a meadow extending from your wall or angels flying down from the heavens of your ceiling to achieve this look. It can be as simple as purchasing and installing some “fake books” wallpaper to create the visual impact of bookshelves extending along a wall.
Small Bedroom Design
Small bedroom design doesn’t have to look boring or feel crowded. In fact, you can work with space constraints to craft a cozy space that exudes personal style.
