Good quality bedding and a calming, neutral color palette are key to creating an inviting bedroom environment. We like to layer accessories as well with throw blankets, pillows and, of course, a delicious smelling candle.
There are numerous ways to get creative with a bed wall. A mural, a featured paint color and even wallpaper can be cost-effective if you choose economical options. Creating a gallery wall above your bed can also be a way to add a personalized touch. Another idea is to showcase a cool headboard.
To maximize limited floor space — especially because the bed typically takes up much of this valuable real estate — incorporate flexible furniture that folds up to the wall. You might try a foldout desk that doubles as a makeup table. A wall-mounted pullout shoe organizer in the closet can free up space on the closet floor for a small chest of drawers, adding needed storage.
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.
