A small room can be challenging to decorate. It can feel impossible to incorporate furniture, storage and decorations into one tiny space. You will need to think carefully about the space and spend a little more time considering measurements. Smaller rooms can often take longer to decorate than the larger spaces in your home.
Here are a few ways to make a tiny space into a dreamy bedroom.
Natural light can open up the room and make it appear bigger. Utilise the windows in the room and try not to drape them with heavy dark curtains. Use a lighter colour palette in the small room to welcome more light in. If you don’t have a big window in the space, you can use ceiling LEDs to add light and save on headspace.
Choose smart furniture
Multifunctional furniture is a fantastic solution for small rooms. You could opt for a bed with storage underneath or vertical shelving to save floor space. Think carefully about the purpose of this room. If you are using it as an office and guest room, a sofa bed will work perfectly.
If it’s a full-time bedroom, you will need a comfortable bed and ample storage space. Install fitted wardrobes to minimise floor space and customise them to the exact shape of the room. With sliding door wardrobes you can save a lot of space in your bedroom as their doors slide from side to side, they don’t require much space in front of them.
Create a focal point
You need to draw the eye to one focal point in the room. You could use a standout piece of furniture, like a bed frame, or a decorative piece, like a painting. Keep the rest of the room organised and plain, so the standout accent has maximum effect.
Consider what does and doesn’t belong
You don’t need to store all of your clothing in one location. Store your out-of-season clothing under the bed to create more room in your wardrobe. It’s much easier to keep a wardrobe organised when there’s less clothing in it. Use the wardrobe for clothes you are currently wearing and use storage for the rest. You could store your bulk coats and winter shoes outside of the room on a coat rack.
You can make your small bedroom beautiful and cosy with a few simple hacks. Think about each piece of furniture and storage in the room, and only keep what you absolutely need.
