Design tip: Try adding a decorative component to the exterior surface of the foldout piece. A painted pattern on the back of a closed table or desk would add a visually interesting element to the room.
In a micro space, a generously sized decorative piece can help distract from the size of the room. Look at the large chandelier and the vibrant picture next to the bed: The eye has so much to look at that it barely registers the room’s small dimensions.
Mirrors are your best friend in a small bedroom. A medium to large mirror can be placed just about anywhere — there are no strict rules. You might try one above the headboard or your floating dresser, on a wall that faces the bed, or as part of a mirrored closet door. The mirror will not only make the room appear larger, but it also will reflect whatever natural light you have.
With large furniture taking up floor area in your small bedroom, one great trick for creating space and giving the room an airier look is to float some pieces on a wall. This arrangement makes the furniture seem to merge into the wall, giving your room a more streamlined appearance.
