When decorating a small bedroom, every detail must be precise and space should be used to its potential. Making a small space feel bigger is always key to décor because the bedroom is, after all, a personal space; its comfort should not be limited by its size. Here are five small bedroom design ideas to make the most out of your space.
Leverage Light Fixtures
Showcase personality through funky lighting fixtures that set the mood of the space. Think about where each fixture should go and customize it to your personality.
POP of Color
Accent walls and color pop pieces are two ways to add color to liven up any room. While it is good to keep muted tones in smaller rooms to make it feel larger, a pop of color can go a long way to make a space stand out.
Accent your headboard with a red foam board. Paint your floating shelves different colors. Accessorize with a chevron striped lampshade, or houndstooth throw pillows.
Storage is the number one design conundrum of a small bedroom. Add storage without compromising on space by raising the bed. With the added space, you can install built-in drawers or under-the-bed storage totes. These hidden storage containers are a great place for shoes, seasonal clothing and linens.
If you want to make a living/play area in a small space, using a bookcase for multiple purposes can help to distinguish areas. Use baskets on shelves to add storage, while keeping books, framed photos, and movies on other shelves.
Create Depth with Mirrors
Accenting a wall with mirrors will help create the illusion of more space. To do this, purchase mirrors in different shapes and sizes, with interesting frames, and hang them in an asymmetrical pattern on one wall.
Put the Bed in the Closet
If all else fails, and you still need space, put the bed in the closet, or a wall unit. This will create the illusion of a room within a room and open the existing area. Raise the bed to include storage space underneath and purchase a small boudoir for hanging clothes as well as curtains and holdbacks to frame the bed space.
Making the most out of your space is key to successful small bedroom design ideas. Do not be afraid to try something out of the box to reclaim space and make your small room the ultimate relax zone.
