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.
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.
Wallpaper is a transformative way to create a statement in a room. This deGournay wallpaper with 12-carat white gold and aluminum accents is striking and serves as the foundation of the room, but its neutral colors allow for the freedom to add accent colors such as the moss green and magenta chosen for this space. Choosing neutral colors for a big-ticket item such as handpainted wallpaper will give you more versatility because you can always switch up the other colors in the room quite easily.
The foremost strategy for making a small bedroom seem bigger is to cut down on the clutter. Discard things that no longer serve any purpose, and always remember to keep your clothes folded, your shoes stored away and your accessories neatly arranged on shelves and in cupboards. The messier a room, the more cramped it looks.
