20 of the Most Excellent Small Bedroom Ideas

Bedrooms come in all sizes, and it’s the small-sized bedrooms that can be the most difficult to decorate and figure out how to utilize the space to its optimum. Small spaces are always a challenge to decorate and make the space feel bigger and inviting. Knowing some key points on decorating, can help you not only create a space, and bedroom, that is functional, but is equally as beautiful. Today, more furniture and decorating ideas are geared around small spaces since more people are intentionally moving toward a smaller scaled lifestyle. If you have a small bedroom that you need ideas for, keep reading to learn the top five tips for decorating it.

1. Create a focal point

Every room needs a focal point, and using that focal point to the advantage of the room is key. A focal point draws the eyes in to it and whatever you choose to use as the focal point should be eye-catching. You can choose to use the bed’s headboard, a picture, window, or chandelier. If you use the head of a bed, try enhancing the headboard with bold-colored throw pillows to draw the eyes in even more. If you choose a window, add eye-catching draperies to make the window pop and make it the center of attention.

2. Smaller scaled furniture

Small rooms look cluttered fast, especially if you put large pieces of furniture in the room. It might be tempting to get the biggest desk, bed or dresser, but large furniture eats up floor space and leaves the room looking overwhelming, unusable and crowded. Furniture ideas that create the look of a larger space are a bed with a see-through headboard and no footboard give the appearance of openness. Small night tables with smaller table lamps leave more walk-room, as well as it gives the room more visual square footage.

3. Use of lighting

Lighting plays a big role in any room. The use of natural light can instantly make a room feel bigger and airier. If your room doesn’t have much natural light, try using lighting on different levels, from a small hanging chandelier over the bed, wall sconces, floor lamp and table lamps, to increase the look and feel of the room.

4. Creative storage

Storage is usually tight in a small bedroom. You will want to be creative with your storage if you are lacking. Ideas for storage in a small bedroom include, use a decorative chest for a nightstand to store items or clothing, or place an ottoman under a window or at the foot of the bed for seating as well as holding winter clothes. Storage, or sweater boxes can be slid under a bed. If the bed is too low, try setting the frame up on risers and add a bed skirt that flows to the floor, to hide what’s underneath.

5. Choose your color palette

When it comes to a small bedroom, you can choose to create a room that’s either dark and cozy, or bright and airy. Your color scheme will set the tone for the room and can add visual square footage. For a bigger, more open feel, choose light colors for the walls and use the features of the room, and the furniture for adding a burst of color and boldness. Bold and bright colored throw pillows and draperies can add flare to the room. For more color, add a brightly colored piece of art deco on the wall to give your room character.
