Small and cramped bedrooms can sometimes create the opposite of the calming, restful space you need to sleep. While oftentimes you have no control over the size of your bedroom, the good news is that there are ways of making your room look and feel beautiful, organized and comfortable. With this in mind, I’m here today to share with you a few tricks for how to design a small bedroom.
We’ve reached a point at the beach cottage that it’s time to finalize the first floor bedroom and this room has proved to be a challenge. The bedroom is tiny and we weren’t able to fit a traditional closet. Because this room will be our room to start and then serve as the guest room, we knew we needed a large enough bed to accommodate a couple but that complicated things even further.
It was my planning for this small bedroom that gave me the idea for today’s post so I’m excited to share with you the very tricks I’m using to make our small bedroom look and feel comfortable in the hopes that it can also help inspire you with your small bedroom.
How to Design a Small Bedroom
Go Big with Personality
Don’t get sucked in by all the popular myths about small rooms. In fact, if your bedroom is short on space, I actually encourage you to pick a detail and go big (and bold) with personality to really make an impact. Consider adding a bold pop of color on a feature wall or creating a focal point with a patterned wallpaper.
Instead of making your room look even smaller, it can actually make it feel cozy like a cocoon. Wallpaper can even make your room feel like a special little jewel box.
Going dark on the walls doesn’t necessarily mean your room will look smaller. If fact, some dark colors can actually make a room feel more expansive. Similarly, if you go all white from top to bottom, the appearance of a light and airiness can make your bedroom feel much larger than it is.
The point here is that you should experiment with color. Don’t be afraid to go dark but know that going super light can also help.
