Improve Your Small Bedroom with Designs That Think Big!
When it comes to smaller bedrooms, there’s often a fine line between feeling comfy or feeling crowded. That’s why you have to take special care with the furniture pieces you select Fortunately, there are a handful of design tricks that can make your small bedroom seem big!
How to Make a Small Bedroom Feel Spacious
You want to organize and style your bedroom with items that fit your own design sense, but they also need to physically fit with your bedroom layout. This advice can help you find some common ground—and fall in love with any smaller bedroom.
- Start at your bed
As the essential centerpiece of your room, considering your bedframe is often the first step. If you think your room won’t work with both a bed and a dresser, you might be able to find a great storage bed to address both functions and store extra bedding.
- Go with a neutral palette
Color can add a ton of personality to your room. It can also be used to trick the eye. Sticking with pastels or an off-white paint color for your walls usually helps the area feel larger and slightly more “luxe.”
- Choose smaller patterns
When you want to add a rug or pillows for the bed, it might be better to stay clear of big and bold patterns. Those designs can easily overwhelm a smaller room.
- Let in natural light
Opening your curtains and letting in the sunlight might be one of the simplest ways to make your room feel bigger. And if you don’t like your view? Try working with a collection of smaller light fixtures instead of a single overhead lighting element.
- Check your curtain colors
Of course, you’ll probably want to use curtains too. The same rules apply here. A neutral color or small pattern will help. It’s also a good idea to hang your curtains slightly higher for a grander effect.
- Find “less solid” furniture
This technique is great for adding more depth and interest to your room. Look for furniture pieces that have taller, thinner legs or are missing sides. A little height with your accent chair or a bookshelf with a more open design will benefit that spaciousness you want to create.
- Add a new mirror
Placing a mirror over your dresser or as a statement piece on one of your bedroom walls will help reflect light. It’s a quick way to persuade the eye that your room is larger than it really is!
- Work with a professional
While anyone can find inspiration from these small bedroom design tips, sometimes it helps to call on the professionals. Getting a new perspective on your space and having someone work with you to find the exact right furniture pieces can make your redesign project a breeze.
