Does your small bedroom make you wish you had a larger bedroom? We all have that one room (or maybe two) in our homes where we wish we could push back the walls and make it larger. Bedrooms should be our retreat, our sanctuary at the end of the day, but if you have a small bedroom, it can be difficult to turn the space into a dream escape. There are a lot of myths out there for decorating small rooms. Here are some tips that will debunk some of those myths while opening up some new decor possibilities in the creation of your dream bedroom.
How to Make Your Small Bedroom Feel Larger
Small Bedrooms Don’t Equal Small Furniture:
One of the biggest mistakes that most people make when decorating small rooms is to clutter it with lots of small pieces. By filling a small room with lots of tiny side tables, skinny little lamps, and small dressers – you are creating a room that feels crowded and even smaller than before. A small room of any kind needs one or two large pieces of furniture that act as a focal point and make the room actually feel larger! A large armoire is one of the best furniture items to add to your small bedroom space; they give you tons of storage and their height and size draws the eye in and up, making the space feel large.
A small bedroom needs plenty of colors:
Color is your friend no matter how small or large the room is. The key essential to keep in mind when choosing a color for a small room is to keep your color choices down to one or two main colors for the room – you can’t have a rainbow of colors in a small room without overwhelming the eye. The good news is that you can choose whatever color your heart desires! Choose that vibrant blue or red paint; coat every wall and piece of trim in the color (or two hues of the same color) to make a serene room that your eyes float over. Bright red walls with white trim can be pretty but is better left to larger rooms as it causes a disjointing and makes a room visually smaller.
