Decorating and furnishing a small bedroom can be tough but with some easy hacks you can make it seem larger than it really is!
When styling a small bedroom it’s important not to make it feel cramped and claustrophobic in there. You want to create a relaxed atmosphere in the bedroom which means you need it to be neat and tidy, which can be tough when you only have a limited space to work with. However, there are some simple things that you can do to really open up space and make the room feel a lot larger than it is. If you don’t know where to start when it comes to furnishing and decorating a small bedroom, these are some of the best space saving hacks you can try.
A Smaller Bed
The bed takes up the majority of the floor space in the room and if it’s too large, you won’t have any room to move around it, so the room will feel tiny. But you can easily get around that if you just go for a slightly smaller bed. You can still get a reasonably sized bed that is nice and comfortable but giving yourself a few extra inches on either side will make a big difference to the overall space in the room.
A big wardrobe is fine in a larger room but in a small room, it’s eating up valuable floor space. If you want to make the room appear bigger while still maintaining that storage space, try going for fitted wardrobes instead. You can have them custom built to fit the room so you’re using the space efficiently and you’re only taking up what you need. If you arrange the room in the right way and fit the wardrobes in an area that doesn’t get much use anyway, you’re not wasting valuable space.
The biggest problem that you have in a small bedroom is storage because if you don’t have somewhere to put everything, the room will quickly become cluttered, which isn’t relaxing at all! Try to include some clever storage solutions around the room to add more storage without adding any more bulky furniture. For example, a storage bed with drawers underneath is a great way to do that. It’s ideal for storing things that you don’t use very often, like seasonal clothes that you won’t wear until next year, for instance.
If there isn’t much floor space in the room, you need to start looking upwards and making use of the vertical space in the room. Adding open shelves and tall bookcases is a great way to get more out of that vertical space without taking up too much of the floor space. Putting tall bookcases in the corner of the room, in particular, is a great way to add more storage easily. You can also put shelves above the headboard of the bed because that’s dead space that wouldn’t normally get used.
By using these simple space saving hacks, you can turn a small, cramped bedroom into a nice open space that is perfect for relaxing!
