If your kids have left home and they’ve left their rather bijou bedroom behind for good, you might be thinking about redecorating and reclaiming the space, but you don’t know how to make a tiny bedroom look good. Don’t worry because even the smallest of bedrooms can be transformed into a beautiful tranquil space with a little bit of thought.
Here are some tiny bedroom design tips you might find useful:
Make it Plush
Have you ever noticed that the tiny bedrooms in boutique hotels never feel all that small? That’s because they make the room so plush and inviting that guests simply do not notice the size. Take a leaf out of their book by adding a plush padded headboard, lots of comfy pillows and snug throws, and anyone who stays in the bedroom will have such a good experience that the size of the room won’t even come into the equation.
If the space for bedside tables is almost non-existent, consider attaching small shelves to the wall instead. This will be better than having no bedside tables at all and ensure that you or your guests have somewhere to place your glass of water, bedtime and bedtime book.
Add a Large Mirror
The space may be limited, but it’s worth placing a large mirror on the wall opposite the doorway or window if possible. This will reflect the light and the room, giving the illusion that your tiny bedroom is bigger than it really is.
Paint it Light
Painting your tiny bedroom in light, natural colors will make it feel more spacious than using dark, dramatic colors. You can always add hints of color and points of interest by using colorful bedding from Vaulia Home Collection and adding a painting or two to the walls so that the room doesn’t feel too bland, boring or impersonal.
If you don’t have a lot of room for lights and lamps, adding ceiling mounted spotlights is a great way to ensure that the room is fully illuminated and that you are able to see what you’re doing at any time of the day. Used in conjunction with wall-mounted reading lights, they will be more than adequate for the average person’s needs.
Don’t Be Afraid of Accessories
Many people think that because a bedroom is tiny, they should keep the accessories and those little design flourishes that bring a room together, to a minimum, but this just makes the room look unloved. Don’t be afraid to bring in rugs, pillows, and trinkets if you can.
Source Slim Furniture
Obviously, every bedroom, no matter how big or small, needs a place for the occupant to store their clothes and accessories. It can be tricky to fit furniture into small rooms, but in recent years, more and more furniture companies have started offering slim furniture, which is much easier to fit into tight spaces than the average. Source slim drawers and you should have no problem providing the required storage space in your room, but if you can’t even fit these in, consider buying an under-bed storage drawer instead.
