Looking for inspiration on how to decorate a small bedroom? Big city apartments, vintage home layouts, and modern space downsizing all call for design that expands the possibilities of small. If you need a bedroom makeover but don’t think you have enough bedroom to work with, you’re in the right place. We’ve got some lovely small bedroom ideas to prove small spaces can be stylish.
While modern and luxurious design ideas often tell you that you need to have a sitting area, small office, or a king-size bed in your bedroom, don’t forget that a bedroom’s main function is to be a place to rest and recharge. And you don’t have to do much to create a beautiful space to do so.
Your small bedroom may be a blessing for a better night’s sleep. The American Sleep Association recommends keeping stimulating activities out of the bedroom. They warn that distractions like the TV, internet, and work can disrupt your sleep patterns. So, the less there is to do in your bedroom, the more sleep you set yourself up for. How’s that for smart design?
Here are some tips to keep in mind:
- Light colors enhance the feeling of space, while darker hues tend to close in; lighten up your walls and furnishings.
- This may seem obvious, but ditch the king-size (or even queen) bed and use space-saving furniture. If storage space is an issue, under-bed storage containers such as this one can free up a lot of space.
- Visually expand the room by using mirrors.
Here are savvy small room decorating ideas to help you create a bedroom space that may be small in square footage, but is big in style.
