Having a small bedroom may present some challenges, but a limited floor area doesn’t have to be boring! If anything, what you can accomplish with limited space helps you get more creative in choosing your furniture and décor. Here are some tips to achieve a nice and cozy bedroom with limited square footage.
1. Let More Light In
More lighting can make even the tightest space much more comfortable and airy. Don’t be afraid to use windows and keep treatments to a minimum to make the most of the natural light. Windows also offer great light for reading during the day. For privacy, you can simply use vertical blinds.
2. Opt for a Smaller Bed frame
Every inch is vital when you have a small bedroom, so the more you can limit your furniture size, the better. Instead of getting a traditional bed frame with footboard, opt for a simple, yet elegant headboard that you can hang to save more space and draw attention.
For example, this gorgeous chalk-painted queen headboard can serve as your focal point in the room, making it appear much bigger. A smaller bedroom doesn’t mean you can’t be stylish!
3. Rethink Your Bed Entirely
If you live in a studio, you might want to save on precious space by ditching a full-sized bed and getting a daybed that doubles as a couch instead, like this one from Ava’s Attic.
4. Paint Your Room White
White is always a practical choice for small spaces, as it is very effective in expanding and brightening up a place. If you’re worried that the color may lack personality, considering layering your whites by using different shades, textures and patterns. You can also add soft neutrals and metal colors in your décor to create a look that is warm and inviting.
5. Use Oversized Mirrors
This is a classic trick to create the illusion of a larger room that is so simple yet so effective. For best results, position your mirror to reflect the light coming in from the windows and you can easily increase the natural light in your bedroom.
