5 Ways To Make The Most Of A Small Bedroom Space



It can be challenging to make the most of a small bedroom, if you add too many decor items everything looks cluttered. On the other hand, a lack of decoration can leave a small room looking dull. Luckily, there are lots of ways that you can make a smaller bedroom feel bigger. To start making improvements today, try a few of these ideas.

1 . Space Saving Furniture

To make the most of a small bedroom it’s important to choose space-saving furniture items. Whether it’s your free standing wardrobes or your bedside cabinet, choose items that are small, functional, and with maximum storage space. Here are a few simple ideas:

  • Under Bed Storage: Choose a bed with drawers underneath, to save floor space and conceal personal items from view.
  • Transparent Furniture: Try transparent furniture, such as desks and chairs, and these can create the illusion of more space.
  • Floating cabinets: These cabinets are another great option to help you create the appearance of space in a room.
  1. Mirrors To Maximize Space

Adding mirrors is another great way to make a small bedroom seem bigger. You could use traditional mirrors, mirrored furniture items, or a mix of both. You should measure out how much space you have, before choosing your mirrors and furniture. It’s advisable to choose a large feature mirror, as opposed to a few smaller ones.

  1. A Low-Scale Bed

Choosing a low-scale bed can create the appearance of more space, helping to improve a small room. As well as maximizing space, these beds are very on-trend. For other ways to improve your bed try a memory foam mattress and extra cushions for comfort. 

When shopping for materials, look out for organic cotton, this is more eco-friendly and soft when compared to traditional cotton. From your decor to your furniture and your paint, it’s best to go earth-kind as much as possible.

  1. Throw Out The Clutter

When you’ve got a small bedroom, every bit of clutter stands out and looks messy. To improve the look of your room, it’s best to have a good clear out. Try to only hold onto items you actually need and use frequently. If an item has no use or sentimental value, then it’s time to find it a new home! You can dispose of your items by selling or donating them, to keep things eco-friendly.

  1. Choose Minimal Decor 

Last up, to maximize space in a bedroom, it’s best to use minimal decor. You can do this in the following ways:

  • Neutral colors: Try to use neutral colors that enhance light and space, while providing a calming effect.
  • Functional objects: Ensure that you only choose a small number of functional objects, avoid an excess of furniture or ornaments.
  • Avoid patterns: Too many patterns can make a room look cluttered and small. With a simple decor scheme, you’ll keep things looking open and bright. Minimalist decor will continue to be a leading interior design trend in 2021.
