A small bedroom does not have to be a problem. It can become a spectacular, beautiful and functional space. After all, your room is the temple of rest; therefore, you deserve it to be comfortable and well conditioned, but without leaving style behind, since the more beautiful and welcoming it is, the better you will feel in it.
It’s not just about changing the paint on the walls, it is also about choosing and combining the proportions of the furniture and selecting the shapes that are most suitable for each element in the room.
Follow these simple tips and you will see how your room grows in metres and in style.
Choose the correct colours
Say yes to white. Contrary to dark colours that take away potential of your bedroom, neutrals give a room more depth, and are therefore ideal colours when it comes to decorating a small space. White walls reflect light, making your bedroom look much larger than it is, giving a sense of freedom.
Play around with lighting
A small, well-lit bedroom will immediately seem larger, provided you have the right lamps. The ceiling lamp, for example, will spread the light harmoniously throughout the room much better than a halogen directed towards the ceiling, which will only narrow it down, reducing the feeling of space. The ideal is to choose two identical wall or ceiling lamps, placed on both sides of the bed. Another good idea is to install a mirror, which reflects natural light and, by optical illusion, enlarges the room.
Within the confines of a small bedroom, the size of the bed becomes crucial as does the accompanying furniture or bedside tables. Don't try and squeeze these in, minimise…that’s the key. Do you really need a King Size bed or does a Queen fit snugly in the room? Along with the bed, the rest of the furniture should also be purposeful without being intrusive. Pieces that are too big will not only prevent you from moving easily, but they will also appear disproportionate.
Choose the ideal place for the bed
The position of the bed is very important. Placing it at the end of the room, for example, frees up space or placing it near the window will make the room seem less cramped, giving you the opportunity to enjoy the views and expand the metres out. Another good idea is to lower the mattress to the ground (tatami mats are an alternative), so that it increases the height and therefore gives the impression of having a larger room.
Every corner counts
Every free space in your bedroom is important. Keep in mind that when we have a small bedroom we should not waste any millimetre. Therefore, if you have a space under the bed, it is time to take advantage of it. You can put the suitcases full of clothes from another season, the shoes that you are going to wear the next day, or whatever you think will help you keep order.
You can have an amazing bedroom, even if it's small. The metres might be scarce, but never the style.
