Decorating a small bedroom can be quite a challenge. Unlike in a room where space is abundant, it's more important than ever to be strategic about what items you include and how you display them in order to make the space feel as bright and open as possible. Fortunately, you can make your small bedroom feel spacious and inviting with a few simple tricks. With these tips from Thomas Lee Sheets, you can effortlessly make even the smallest of rooms feel bigger.
Utilize Light Appropriately
There's nothing worse than a poorly lit room. After all, when a room is darker than it should be, it can feel tiny, drab, and closed in. Fortunately, this is an easy problem to avoid. To ensure that your bedroom feels as big and bright as possible, be sure to layer your light sources. Along with an ambient light source, such as a ceiling fan, distribute a combination of accent and task lighting around the room to meet your particular needs, such as reading. Likewise, prioritizing natural light can play a tremendous role in opening up your small bedroom. To optimize the sunlight in the space, avoid positioning furniture in front of windows and choose light window treatments.
Strategically Position Mirrors
Mirrors are a small room's best friend. Hanging a mirror
or two in your bedroom is a great technique to trick your eye into thinking the space is bigger than it is. To get the most out of a mirror in your bedroom, be sure to position it across from a light source, such as a window or a table lamp. This approach will maximize your room's light, making it feel bright and open.
Be Selective About Your Furniture
In terms of helping your bedroom feel more open and spacious, it's important to be picky about your furnishings. Along with choosing pieces that are the appropriate size and scale for the space, remember that it isn't always necessary to bring in an abundance of furniture just because they're available or you like them. On the contrary, it's best to choose a few pieces that don't just look great but serve a specific purpose. If a piece of furniture isn't earning its keep by contributing to the overall style of the space or making your bedroom more practical, it's time to let it go. You're sure to appreciate the extra walking room and how much bigger the space feels with less clutter in it.
Pick the Right Colors
When it comes to making your small bedroom feel bigger, the colors you choose to incorporate matters. While bright neutrals, such as white, can certainly make the space feel more spacious and open, don't think you must avoid color. Sticking with soft, understated, and muted colors
, such as pastels, is a great option to not only give the illusion of your bedroom being bigger than it is but also helping it feel tranquil and relaxing. Another option to effectively use color in a quaint bedroom is to choose a monochromatic color scheme. Having walls, window treatments, and bedding in the same shade can instantly open the room up. If you take this approach, however, be sure to choose fabrics with plenty of texture to provide warmth and dimension to the space.
