10 Tips to successfully design a small bedroom

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Designing a small bedroom can be difficult; you might have too many objects or furniture that can make the space feel like it has filled its capacity. However, nothing is impossible. There are a few things that you can do to make a small, cramped space look bigger and more spacious:

Use horizontal stripes

If you use horizontal stripes the room will look higher and more stylized. You should keep in mind that the lines must be of the same thickness and have to be at the same distance of one another. You might think that vertical lines are the ones that give the illusion of a higher space and it might be truth, but this will only make space visually shrink and look smaller than it already is. If you want this pattern on your walls then you could paint the stripes yourself or use wallpaper if you want something readymade.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”24940″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Add mirrors

Using mirrors is a great way to give luminosity and amplitude to any space. You can place them above the headboard, on the sides of the bed or you could clad the closet doors with the mirrors (if you have one). Using a rectangular or square mirror is the most common thing to do, but you could also have various mirrors with different shapes (like circular mirrors) on a wall that needs some decoration.

Use curtains

Curtains are used to cover windows, but you could also use them to cover some spaces in your room. If the size bedroom does not allow you to have a proper closet door or a principal door, then use curtains to cover that closet or the main entrance of the space. You could also have curtains as the “door” of a small furniture piece that is storing something that you do not want to show.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”24941″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Use furniture with multiple uses

Try to avoid using furniture that does not have a variety of uses because you are only filling up the space with unnecessary objects. If you have a working table, you could place it near the bed and use it as a night table as well; or you could have a trunk in front of the bed with the purpose of having a spot to rest or sit down.

Add a focal point

If you do not want people pointing out how small your bedroom is, then add a focal point. This will cause the people to forget about the size of the space and direct their gaze towards the focal point. The focal point could be the headboard or a painting placed above the bed.

Light colors

The best option to paint the walls (or furniture) of a small room is a light color. You could use neutral colors like white, beige, light grey, etc. Light colored walls will give the illusion of a larger and spacious bedroom. If the room gets a lot of sunlight during the day the light color that you choose will multiply the illusion of a bigger space. You may think that white walls can be a bit boring, but a light color is ideal if you want to have a colorful room because it gives you the chance of including whatever color you like on the decoration.

Floor-to-ceiling curtains

With horizontal lines on the walls of the bedroom you will make the room look wider. However, you will also want the ceilings to look higher… To achieve this effect use floor-to-ceiling curtains. This works because the continuity of the fabric will trick the human eye making the space look higher.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”24943″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

The lighting

Try to avoid using floor lamps because these will take up space that could be useful for a night table or another piece of furniture. Instead use ceiling lights, pendant lamps or wall lamps. You can also have a table lamp for more lighting. If you do not want to have wall, ceilings or pendant lamps the best option for you is to have recessed lights.

Built-in closets

Having a built-in closet will make you save a lot of space in a small bedroom. This type of closet will give you more storage space than a conventional closet. Folding or sliding doors for a built-in closet are a must for a petit bedroom.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”24944″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Beds with storage

Change your bed with one that already has a built-in storage. This type of bed has two purposes: it is made for sleeping and it is also made to put away the things that you do not know where to keep. You could put away bed sheets, blankets, towels, toys (if it is a kid’s bedroom), books, and anything small that you do not want to show inside the bedroom. Another positive thing about beds with storage is that you do not have to clean under them. You could opt for a bed frame with drawers and a headboard that also has some space on the sides to hide things or a flip up bed with storage underneath it.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”24945″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
