The bedroom should be our shelter of everyday problems and stresses, and we should feel comfortable in it. However, sometimes this pleasure does not exist and we feel bad in that room. Why is that so? There are several things that you should pay attention to, to make comfortable and pleasant bedroom. You should consider if the space has lack of natural light, if the color palette is not compatible, if space is small and overcrowded, etc … All these are a reasons for dissatisfaction, but with proper arrangement you will make even the smallest bedroom to look bigger and more functional, than it is in reality. Here are some professional tips on how to decorate a small bedroom to be functional, cozy and relaxing.
1. Use mirrors
By using a mirror, you will visually double the room size. It’s an old trick that has been used for centuries. In small bedroom mirrors are most often placed on the door of the closet. If possible, position some full-size mirror, from the floor to the ceiling.
2. Set built-in shelves
Built-in shelves are an excellent storage solution. They should not be deep, no more than 20 inches, enough to store books. These shelves also have the function of nightstands so, it is another positive side.
3. Opt for small bed
If the room is exceptionally small, you shouldn’t have a large bed that will completely close the space, but use a folding sofa or couch for sleeping. That way, the room will look bigger and more spacious.
4. Paint the walls in the same nuance
If the ceiling is painted brighter than the walls, the room will seem smaller, but if the ceiling is in the same color as the walls, the eyes will not be able to find sharp dividing lines, so the space will seem bigger.
5. Set hanged or wall lamps
Do not occupy the valuable space on the nightstand with some bulky lamps. Place wall or hanging lamps, and they will give you a precisely directed light, and will visually represent an interesting décor.
