A small bedroom doesn’t have to look cramped and cluttered. It only takes a little imagination and some innovative storage ideas to make a small bedroom look spacious and stylish.
The bedroom is place to relax, rest and sleep, and many of us with smaller bedrooms don’t make the most of the space left around the bed area. If you have a small or even tiny bedroom, there are easy solutions to give it a little personality and even make it a place you want to spend more time in.
Smart storage for clothes
If you have a small bedroom then storage space can often be a problem especially when it comes to wardrobes. Forget bulky units and go for the slim line options that can be designed around the space you have. You can go online at many furniture websites and enter measurements to get a wardrobe to fit the space you have. Make sure to consider corner wardrobes that are designed specifically to fit snugly into corner wall spaces, or choose a wardrobe with a mirror will create the illusion of space.
Shelving is another good solution for those with smaller bedrooms and little storage space. For a more stylish look consider the many vertical shelving units that extend from floor to ceiling. Also consider built-in shelving instead of a bed headboard, which is a practical and stylish solution for smaller bedrooms. Shelving units can also be placed against the wall either side of the bed head to make the most of empty space.
Consider a folding sofa bed
Sofa beds are one of the best ways to save space in the bedroom and today’s designs now come with storage space included. Sofa beds offer great versatility when it comes to creating adding space to a small room, especially for those who do use their bedroom as a work area. A lot of thought has been put into the design of the latest sofa beds and you can now buy stylish and comfy futons as well as designer sofa beds that wouldn’t look out of place in an upmarket hotel.
The best approach to a small bedroom is to utilise every inch of space – whether it’s under the bed, over the bed, beneath the window or built into the walls themselves. Plan it well and you could end up with a bedroom that is less of a cramped after-thought and more of a cosy den!
