Consider replacing ordinary door hardware with more stylish options. Handles and knobs in Lucite, modern brushed brass or polished chrome could give the room an updated feel. For a more cohesive, intentional look, coordinate your door hardware with your drawer pulls.
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.
Unless you’re going for an ultra minimalist look, bare white walls in a bedroom can feel more stark than luxurious. Embrace a little paint or wallpaper to give your bedroom a warmer, more designed look.
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.
