Having a small bedroom can be frustrating as a homeowner as this is an important space where the occupant needs to feel relaxed and able to get off to sleep each night. Fortunately, there are a few highly effective decorative tips which can make a small bedroom both look and feel much bigger.
1. Maximize Natural Light
Natural light will make any space feel larger, brighter and airier so this works particularly well in small space. You can maximise natural light by adding new windows/skylights, making sure that windows are not obstructed and by using light colours within the room. You can also use mirrors to maximise natural light which works well in small spaces.
2. Eliminate Clutter
Clutter can make any room feel cramped and untidy. In addition to making a room feel smaller, this will also make the space difficult to relax in. Throwing out what you don’t need and using vertical storage solutions like a bookshelf should help to keep the space neat and tidy at all times.
3. Built-In Furniture
Built-in furniture is intelligent to use in a small and/or uniquely shaped room as it allows the furniture to work with the shape of the room. This allows you to make the most of the space and avoid having bulky furniture taking up space. You could even build your own furniture when you have the right tools – places like SGS will have everything that you need to get started. Additionally, furniture that has legs can make a room feel airier while also providing you with a space for small storage.
4. Use Light Window Treatments
Light window treatments, such as drapes or blinds, will make the space seem bigger and brighter unlike heavy curtains. Additionally, if you were to match the window treatments to the wall colour it can also make the room look bigger than it really is as it will keep your eyes moving across the room in a constant motion.
5. Keep It Basic
Finally, you will want to keep the bedroom basic in order to maximise space and help the room look bigger – this could also help you to sleep better each night. The bedroom basics include a high-quality and sensibly sized bed, a bedside table, a wardrobe, a chest of drawers and a mirror.
If you have a small bedroom then it can have a huge impact on your life. Taking these steps will help to transform the space and make it look and feel much brighter, airier and more attractive. This could help to create a space where you find it easy to relax and get off to sleep each night. It can take some work and creativity to transform the space but it is certainly worth the effort because it can help with so many areas of your life.
