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.
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.
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.
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.
