Designing Small Bedrooms

Small bedrooms can be suffocating at times. The best thing to do for a small bedroom is maximize all the spaces. Choose the right furniture and do not put so many things in one room to avoid suffocation to the owner and guests. There are a few things that you can do to have a sophisticated and relaxing bedroom for only a small space.

Create an eye-catching spot to establish hierarchy in your room. Usually, the focal point of the room is the head of the bed. But in a small space, your eye would be fixed into the window. So for a better eye-catching point, put the bed in front of the window. Keep things open by having a small bedroom. It is smarter to have a storage bed. In this manner, your bed would have multiple functions. Keep the middle of the room open to make it feel bigger. You can have a dark bedroom but a cozy one or a bright room where you can boost the light entering your room. It is best that you keep your room tidy and have storage to keep your things.

1. Choose a charming lighting

By adding a mirror to your bedroom, it will create a trick that can expand the room visually. For a more intimate and enclosed space, close the curtains and hide the mirror. The tall mirror makes the room appear to be much larger.

8.  Patterns
