A small bedroom can be the perfect cosy retreat but owners may feel challenged and frustrated trying to fit a bed, desk, wardrobe and more into a small space. However, a small bedroom doesn’t have to feel cluttered and cramped, and with the right design and storage, you can turn your snug space into the perfect relaxing area.
If your bedroom is on the smaller side or if you’re downsizing in the near future, see below for four ways to make the most of a small bedroom.
Raise up the bed
A bed high off the floor allows you to make the most of under the bed storage and open up the space overall. If the ceiling is high enough you could also choose a cabin bed which is raised high enough to allow space underneath for a desk, table or chest of drawers. These are very popular for a child’s bedroom as it includes a comfortable area to do homework or other activities.
Smart storage solutions are key when you don’t have much space to work with; think double hangers in the wardrobe so you can hang twice as many clothes, and high shelving to make the room appear larger than it is. A floor to ceiling storage unit also makes maximum use of the space and can be used to store books, ornaments and drawers for clothes or jewellery.
Adding a large mirror is one of the quickest and easiest ways to draw more light into the room and open up the space. Mirror frames can be as plain or ornate as you like to reflect your individual style; choose a rustic wood for a simple, Scandanavian-style bedroom or ornate gilt gold for a luxurious touch.
Made to measure furniture
Small rooms are often awkwardly shaped, with sharp corners or a sloping ceiling on one side. Having custom furniture made to fit the space is a great investment and ensures you’re making the most of the space. Built-in wardrobes or drawers and custom shelving can all ensure you’ve got the maximum amount of floor and wall space left free.
