How to Maximize Space—and Style
Small bedrooms do not have to be small on style. Here are our top bedroom design tips for transforming a small space into a comfortable and relaxing retreat:
Organization is Key
Clutter in your bedroom will make it feel substantially smaller. When purchasing your bed, look for one that has storage drawers built into the base. If you already have a bed you love, purchase rolling under-bed storage containers and hide them with a chic bed skirt.
A Bed that Serves a Dual Purpose
If there’s not enough space to have a separate seating area in your bedroom, invest in a tufted headboard or lots of throw pillows to lean against when reading or watching TV.
Not only will tall, narrow dressers take up less floor space, they’ll also create a stylish bedroom design that draws the eye up. The same goes for tall headboards, floor lamps and floor-to-ceiling drapes.
Keep It Light
Keeping the major design components in the lighter color spectrum will help create a small bedroom design that feels airier and bigger. Consider adding a mirror above the headboard or opposite a window to bounce natural light around the room.
