There is no room in the home that is more important than the bedroom. This needs to be a space where you can completely unwind and it should be a reflection of your personality. This can be challenging if you do not have much space to work with so here are some small bedroom design tips.
- Eliminate Clutter
The most obvious step to take is to get rid of anything that you do not need in the bedroom. This means that you need to get rid of unnecessary furniture, old clothes and anything else which takes up space. Find storage solutions so that you can tuck items away and keep the bedroom neat and tidy at all times.
- Use Mirrors & Natural Light
Natural light can make any space look bigger and brighter. Maximize natural light with windows and a skylight if possible with minimal window treatments and then use mirrors around the room which can reflect the light and make the space brighter.
- Tidy Away Cables
Cables can look unsightly and make a room look messy, especially if it is small. Tidy your cables by hiding them where possible and use cable ties from places like RS to keep cables neat and tidy.
- Light Shades
When it comes to the walls, lighter shades can make a room appear bigger and also help to reflect light. Light shades will also create a relaxing atmosphere which should help you to get to sleep at night. You can add colour through the bedding, artwork and other decorative touches.
You can also create an illusion of space through the use of straight lines. This could include wallpaper with stripes from the floor to the ceiling or a carpet with lines which stretch from wall to wall. Additionally, a wardrobe that stretches from floor to ceiling can create the illusion of space and provide ample storage space.
- Have Pieces Made to Measure
When you have limited space you may find it difficult to fit certain items of furniture in the bedroom. A terrific solution to this problem is to have items made to measure – this will allow you to get the items that you need into the bedroom and it can also create a smart, professional interior design look which will help the space to be warm, cosy and welcoming.
Interior design is challenging in the bedroom when you do not have a huge amount of space to work with. Fortunately, there are a few effective solutions to this problem with the above all working well to create an attractive, welcoming and practical bedroom. This should mean that the space will be somewhere that you take pride in and find it easy to relax and drift off to sleep each night.
