Design tip: For a cost-effective bold statement, use your throw pillows as the centerpiece of the room. A curated collection of patterns and textures that are distinct from the rest of the room can really steal the show. For example, in an all-white room, a collection of brightly colored pillows grabs the eye. Similarly, in a room with a dark wall and bedding, try an assortment of either colorful patterned pillows or metallic hues for a dramatic palette.
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.
Another way to enhance the function of the doors in your bedroom is to replace them with light-filtering or reflective materials. A frosted glass pocket door can make a small room feel less closed in. Similarly, a mirrored closet door could make the room feel larger.
White reflects maximum light, making any space look bright and welcoming. Even the tiniest, most claustrophobia-inducing rooms will seem more spacious with white walls, ceiling and bedding.
