Small bedrooms can be as fabulous as their larger counterparts, as long as the homeowner know the best way to pump the charm out. If you happen to transform a small bedroom interior into a gorgeous little hideaway, there are designing tricks you need to tackle. The important key is maximizing every square inch in your small bedroom in order to avoid cramped feelings.
If you don’t know where to start, don’t worry we’ve got your back! Here are some interior designing hacks for a charming small bedroom:
1) Think vertically
Take advantage of your walls and ceilings. You can hang a pendant lighting fixtures from your ceiling, or opt for wall sconces to save floor spaces. Decorate your little retreat with something that flows from ceiling to floor, such as long curtains, wall tapestry, long painting, and more. That will bring the eyes from top to bottom, thus creating a taller feeling in the bedroom.
2) Swap the besides table
Speaking of besides tables, they didn’t really built for small bedrooms. You can opt for a small bedside drawer instead, so you don’t miss beside table function and even got a bonus of additional storages to organize anything, from books to undies. Besides those in the cupboard, you don’t need other space-consuming storages. Except if that’s a smart storage system.
3) Install smart storage systems
Add custom made shelving unit to add more storage space to the room. A floor-to-ceiling wardrobe will do (try to use sliding doors), or just a few shelves and cubby holes which are really handy for storing books and other items will also do.
4) Paint with colors within the same tone
Just as basic interior design for small bedroom suggests, you can paint walls, trims and ceilings in the same color. Another option is painting in lighter shades of the one hue. This way, you can create optical illusion of bigger room, make the ceiling looks higher as the color continuity draws the eyes up. Lighter tones also known as the best shades to paint small bedrooms, as they reflect the light and bring airy feeling into the room.
5) Discard the bedhead
Okay that maybe only free a few inches, but when you experience shortage in space, every inch counts. You can also choose a bold artwork or print to frame the bed. A large statement artwork, such as tapestry, wall rug, or big painting, are better than the smaller ones, which tend to make your small bedroom looks cluttered. Murals and wall arts will also do.
