When it comes to decorating your bedroom, any ideas that you choose to incorporate should take in mind the kind of bedroom that you’re decorating in the first place. To that end, you can’t decorate a small bedroom as you would a large one. You’re not going to have enough space for many of the options and everything can end up feeling cramped and uncomfortable. Instead, here are a few small bedroom decorating tips you might want to keep in mind.
You are not going to have a lot of space for bedroom furniture, so you might not be able to fit your room with the whole kit of a wardrobe, ottoman, bedside cabinet, mirror, chest or drawers, chair, blanket box, dressing table and so on. Instead, you should find one major piece of furniture that can serve as the piece that dominates the look of the room. For others, you can opt for more minimalist approaches, as featured below.
For other pieces of furniture or features, you can make sure that you float as best as you can. This includes, for instance, shelves that you can install onto the wall rather than erecting a shelving unit. You can then tuck other kinds of storage under the pieces that you’re floating, whether it’s a clothing rail beneath your shelf or a wicker basket under a floating bedside table. This way, you can make sure that you’re meeting all of your needs without taking up too much standing room.
In a smaller room, your bed is already likely to dominate a lot more space than it would, otherwise. To that end, there are steps that you can take to help streamline its profile or to at least make sure it doesn’t take up more space than it should. This can include using fewer pillows and aiming for slimmer, denser covers to keep it warm and colourful. You might also want to skip the headboard, instead painting or putting a different patterned wallpaper on the wall at the head of the bed to make it distinct without the board.
You might not have a lot of real space to make use of, but there are ways to help create the illusion of space. Using reflective surfaces, such as shiny wall coverings, mirror wardrobes, as well as the smart placement of a mirror can help the bedroom look more spacious than it is. Similarly, you can break up the room aesthetically with a well-placed splash of colour where the room is at its most open, which helps to segment the room, making it look a little bigger, as well.
