Making the bed wall the star of your bedroom can be fun for any size room. However, it’s especially helpful in a small bedroom because doing so gives the room personality and draws attention to the design feature, rather than the room’s diminutive size.
Highlighting something eye-catching in a small room will not only radiate personality and style, but also take the focus off the size of the room. So make a bold choice in your bedroom. You could select a distinct paint color for your bed wall or opt for a distinctive wallpaper like grasscloth. Other details to spotlight can be a special furniture item, a large piece of art or a standout light fixture.
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.
A bedroom should be your sanctuary. Ideally, it should have enough room to store personal items and give you space to relax, dream and feel your most comfortable. But when you’re faced with limited square footage, creating a bedroom that does all these things can be challenging. Oftentimes the need for storage and functionality overshadows the desire for style. The result can be a bedroom that feels unloved, cluttered, even lackluster.
