Arranging and decorating a small bedroom can be a challenge, but by using a peaceful palette, great lighting and simple-yet-smart storage solutions, you can meet the challenge with style and ease.
Create Depth With Mirrors
Using mirrors will add depth and dimension to a small bedroom because of their unique ability to act like additional windows. Hanging several smaller mirrors in a group can add lots of visual interest.
Under Bed Storage
Small bedrooms are often short on storage, so take advantage of every inch of wasted space. Antique dough bowls, large baskets, plastic bins or rolling drawers create easy-to-use extra storage under your bed.
If you need more storage space for your clothing, but don't have room for a piece of free-standing furniture, consider installing a built-in dresser.
Light It Up
Smart lighting choices have a big effect on how a small bedroom feels. Soft light coming from several different directions will blur the edges of your room and, in turn, make it feel larger.
Create the illusion of more space by limiting the color palette. If you use similar hues on walls, furnishings and bedding, the bedroom appears larger. The lines between all the different elements will be blurred, and your eye will move effortlessly around the room.
Double Duty Desk
Using a small desk next to your bed will create a dual-purpose opportunity. Not only does it act as an oversized nightstand, but pair it with a small chair to serves as a work surface, too.
Take Advantage of the Vertical
Making the most of the vertical space in a small bedroom is an excellent way to keep things neat and organized. Floating shelves will hold a multitude of books and magazines.
Bring in Baskets
Baskets are extremely versatile and attractive decorating tools that can add tons of much needed storage space in a small bedroom. Another plus is that baskets will complement virtually any design style, so have fun choosing ones that are just right for you.
