Having a small bedroom interior does not mean you cannot design it properly. There are various designing ideas you can come up with to make your small bedroom appear larger. If you fail to design it properly, it will start appearing cluttered over time. Fortunately, there are many smart designing solutions that will ensure the maximum utilisation of space. Besides making your small bedroom design appear more appealing, they help increase the functionality of the room as well. So, if you have a bedroom that feels very small, here are a few tips that can help you to style it up and make it appear larger:
01 of 06 Declutter the space
You must always declutter the interiors if it gets cluttered. Although it may sound like an easy task, it can be a little difficult for many. This is because people often end up accumulating various items over the years that they consider ‘important’. These items can occupy a lot of valuable floor space in the room and cause clutter. To avoid this from happening, experts suggest being very careful while adding anything new to the home decor. Try to opt for minimalistic items that will help to keep the room organised and tidy. Before discarding the items from the room, make a list of all the items that you have not used in the last few years. This will help you to narrow down your choices.
02 of 06 Use white for the ceilings and walls
Painting your small bedroom interiors is slightly tricky. You need to be careful while choosing the colours of the paint. Experts suggest choosing neutral colours on the walls, floor, ceiling, furniture, etc. Shades of beige and white help to reflect more light and make the room appear brighter. Further, light colour walls recede more and hence, create the illusion of a larger space. Hence, they are considered ideal for small rooms. Since dark colours absorb more light, they make the room appear smaller. However, using only light colour in your bedroom design can make it appear bland and boring. Consider introducing a few pops of dark colours to give the interior design a more interesting look.
03 of 06 The magic of mirrors
Almost every expert uses this technique while designing a small bedroom. Hanging mirrors is one of the easiest ways to make a space appear larger. Mirrors reflect more light and make the bedroom appear brighter. Further, the reflection formed on the mirror helps to make the space appear twice its original size. As a result, any room appears much larger when you hang mirrors. Also, you must keep in mind that placement is crucial. Strategically positioning it near a window will certainly be more beneficial. Depending on your preferences, you can either hang one large mirror or lots of small ones. Try making a beautiful gallery on the wall by hanging groups of mirrors together. Besides mirrors, you can opt for glass, stainless steel, and other reflective options as well.
04 of 06 Choose floating storage solutions
When the furniture pieces occupy too much floor space in your small bedroom design, the interiors start appearing cluttered. Hence, you should try opting for options that do not occupy floor space. There are various types of floating furniture pieces that you can opt for. Depending on the strength of the wall, you can mount a desk, cabinets, shelves, and even beds. As a result, you will be able to free up a lot of valuable space and the bedroom interiors will look clutter-free.
05 of 06 Choose multi-functional furniture pieces
Besides choosing floating furniture pieces, you can choose multi-functional options as well. There are many furniture pieces available in the market that can be used for more than one purpose. For instance, you can get a bed that comes with storage drawers or a bookshelf that can be converted to a desk. These furniture pieces will reduce the requirement for other furniture pieces and hence, your bedroom does not get cluttered because of too many items.
06 of 06 Choose light window treatments
It is always advised to avoid heavy curtains in small bedroom designs. This is because you should allow as much natural light as possible to enter indoors. Further, heavy and bulky window treatments can occupy a lot of space and cause visual clutter. Instead, you should opt for lighter curtains that will allow sufficient natural light to enter indoors even when the curtains are drawn. Further, experts suggest matching the colour of the curtains with the colour of the walls. This reduces contrast and helps to create a seamless design that makes the room appear larger.
