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. Hi Wendy! Color palette and lighting plays the biggest role in the perceived size of a room. One technique that is a bit contemporary and risqué is glossing the ceiling. I just wrote something up on it last week!

    My focus was a bit different than yours but I think the two can complement one another. In my post, I was focusing on how to make ceilings feel higher but both concepts intersect one another.

    Also, I don’t think people should be overly concerned with making their rooms seem bigger. Contrary to popular belief, bigger is not always better! Smaller rooms hold certain qualities that large rooms cannot replicate. They are homely, cozy, and quaint so I encourage clients to use this to their advantage!
