The foremost strategy for making a small bedroom seem bigger is to cut down on the clutter. Discard things that no longer serve any purpose, and always remember to keep your clothes folded, your shoes stored away and your accessories neatly arranged on shelves and in cupboards. The messier a room, the more cramped it looks.
Extend the headboard. In this bedroom, the white headboard’s embossed pattern adds texture and subtle contrast to the overall design scheme. And its dimensions make the entire bed area seem larger than it actually is.
Designers often advocate for incorporating storage under the bed and using built in pieces as classic space saving solutions. But there are many more ways you can make your small bedroom not only functional but also chic. We offer seven small space problem solvers that can help you create a functional haven without sacrificing style.
This finished bedroom, with planning and execution, took four months. The nightstands were custom, the wallpaper handmade, the bedframe, furniture, rugs, lighting and accessories took months to arrive from our vendors. Then we had to consider the electrical work, painting, application of the wallcovering, and the installation of the furniture. The takeaway is that a well-done room takes time, planning and patience, but the outcome is worth waiting for.
