How to make your small bedroom feel bigger

A bedroom should be a place where you can relax, but if you’re living in a small bedroom the crowded space can instead make you feel stressed and overwhelmed. Luckily, there are several tricks you can use to turn your small bedroom into the stylish sanctuary you want! Check out these three easy solutions below.

How to make your small bedroom feel bigger

1. Maximize your wall space

Instead of crowding your room with storage containers, small dressers and bookshelves, mount shelves to the wall so you can keep your room organized and spacious. You can event mount a shelf next to your bed to act as a nightstand. That opens up floor room for items you can’t store elsewhere.

2. Use your ceiling to create visual interest

It’s important that your room looks stylish and matches your personality. Cluttering your room with décor, however, is not the best solution for smaller bedrooms. Along with hanging photos and artwork, you can create visual interest with lighting. A stand-out pendant or chandelier can do wonders for a small room and won’t take up any valuable space.

3. Open up the room with the right colors and mirrors

Part of working with a small bedroom is using your space efficiently, and another part is using techniques to make your room appear larger than it really is. To open up your bedroom, use light paint colors or wallpaper and hang mirrors. If you really like dark colors, you can then add them with accessories like throw pillows and rugs.

A small bedroom doesn’t have to feel small. Use these tips to use your space more effectively and make a room that is functional, relaxed and stylish!

1. Look for dual-functional furniture

The fewer furniture pieces you have, the less cluttered a room will appear. Look for furniture that serves more than one purpose, such as a storage ottoman or a bed with built-in storage. Furnishing your home with fewer pieces will open up your space so you can actually move around and not feel so cramped.

2. Find smarter storage solutions

Dual-functional furniture is one way to store smartly, but you can find other ways to store household items effectively as well. Utilize spare wall or door space and look for items that can be used as décor. For example, instead of cluttering a kitchen cupboard with spices, hang up a spice rack. It will save room and add visual appeal to your kitchen.

3. Install wall-mounted light fixtures

No matter where you live or how small your space is, you’re going to need light. Instead of taking up space with a floor or table lamp, install wall-mounted light fixtures wherever you need task lighting. So if you like to read in bed before falling asleep, add a decorative, wall-mounted lamp next to your bed for light.

4. Decorate with mirrors

Mirrors are a great way to make a space appear larger, and the best part is you can just hang them up on the wall or the back of your door. To get more out of your mirror, hang it up next to the window so that it reflects more natural light.

While it might be an adjustment, living in a smaller space doesn’t have to be a nightmare. Try out these tactics and enjoy your tiny home!
