Small bedroom spaces can be a bit of a task to decorate and create into a stylish, relaxing sanctuary for the occupant. If you have a small bedroom space in your home, there are many things that you can do to not only make the space appear bigger, but also ensure that it is decorated and laid out in such a way that it looks stylish and appealing. Small bedrooms are often used as guest rooms, but whatever you use your small bedroom for, we’ve got some great ideas to help you to make the most of it.
Avoid dark and bright colours when it comes to decorating a small bedroom. Darker colours can easily make the space appear even smaller, whereas lighter colours will open up the space and give it a more airy and spacious appearance. You may also want to consider also including a feature wall, as this breaks up the four walls and creates an illusion of more space. It’s also a great way to add a pop of colour to a small bedroom space without it being too overbearing.
When it comes to de-cluttering a small bedroom space, smart storage solutions are the answer. Cluttered bedrooms do not make for relaxing and comfortable sleeping areas, however if a bedroom is really small, it’s often difficult to make enough space for the occupant to store their belongings. Beds with under-bed storage, wardrobes that are built into the wall and other smart storage solutions are the best and most ideal option for a small bedroom.
Certain small bedroom spaces can be a bit difficult to fit a regular bed in, or are a strange size meaning that they’re a bit too big for a single bed but don’t have enough space to house a double or king size. Having a bespoke bed made to fit the bedroom properly could be a great option, as this will utilize the space as best possible and ensure that the bedroom appears stylish. Because the bed is made to measure for the bedroom, it’s easier to work the rest of the design around it. You can get a narrow mattress made to measure if you go down the route of having a bespoke bed design.
When it comes to making the small bedroom space appear larger than it actually is, there are many things which you can do to easily create this illusion. One of the most popular and easiest things to do is to hang a large mirror on the wall, as this will reflect the room and create the illusion that there is more space than there actually is. Keeping windows open as much as possible can also make the room look lighter, more airy and more spacious. Keep the room well-lit, as dark and dimly-lit rooms can also look more cramped and smaller.
