One of the most important rooms in the house is the bedroom. The bedroom is a private space where you can express yourself, rest, and pursue your interests. Having a large bedroom allows you to easily arrange the layout of your belongings as you see fit. However, if the bedroom is small, you will need to pay special attention to how you arrange things so that the room does not feel cramped.
When it comes to arranging a small room, having limited space is often a challenge. The key is to avoid cramming too much furniture into your space; instead, select furniture that serves your needs. The size of the furniture can also influence how comfortable a small bedroom is.
1. Use neutral colors to be safe.
The first consideration in making a narrow room more comfortable is the choice of wall paint colors. Choose and apply a light-colored wall paint, such as white, cream, or pastel. These light colors are the safest basic colors to use and are simple to combine with other furniture colors and textures.
White or neutral colors can also give your room a broad impression because light colors reflect light broadly and evenly, making the bedroom feel wider and brighter. Instead, stay away from black and other dark colors that absorb light. Dark colors will make the bedroom appear smaller. Furthermore, bright colors have a soft impression and are appropriate for those of you who do not dare to put a lot of colors or pictures on the walls of your home. Furthermore, the color will improve the mood.
Aside from the color of the wall paint, it’s also important to consider the color of the floor or carpet you’re using. Neutral colors and small line motifs that repeat are very effective at making the room appear larger. You can make the bedroom more visually appealing by using ethnically patterned rugs.
2. Select the Appropriate Bed
A mattress or bed is the focal point of a bedroom. To avoid the appearance of being cramped and claustrophobic, you must choose the right type of bed frame. A bed frame in a classic style can be an appealing option for those who appreciate small details like rounded edges and striped interior patterns that create a classic and timeless impression. In addition, you can select a bunk bed with free space at the bottom. Particularly for children’s rooms, which are typically smaller than the main room.
Place the mattress against one wall to create more space and make your bedroom appear larger. Utilize the space under the mattress to store items such as shoes, bags, and other equipment to maximize space. However, to create the illusion of harmony in the color selection, store these items in a storage box or basket with colors that match the rest of your bedroom.
In addition to the bed, the choice of bed linen can contribute to the overall feeling of comfort and calm. Choose neutral and bright colored products, just like you did with the wall color.
3. Maximize Your Multifunctional Wardrobe
A multifunctional wardrobe may be a solution for storing all of the items in the room. Instead of traditional cabinets, multipurpose cabinets with headboards can be used. Closed cabinets for wardrobes and headboards are common, as are shelves to store items that you don’t want to be seen, or to serve as a display area for bedroom accessories and decorations.
Increase the height of the walls in the bedroom to make more storage space. The key is to select the type of cabinets and shelves you want to use and to customize them to the shape of the room space and the number of items you have. This wardrobe’s color scheme can also be customized to match the color of your bedroom walls.
4. Wall Lamp with Playing Light
Lighting is critical in a small bedroom. It is critical to be able to present a comfortable bedroom atmosphere. During the day, take advantage of natural lighting. Alternatively, ensure that your room has a window that receives sunlight.
In the evening, a lamp attached to the roof or wall can be used. Forget about table and floor lamps. Consider a wall lamp if you want to add lighting to do activities before bed in a small bedroom. Wall bed lamps are ideal for bedrooms with limited space because they reduce the amount of space available for lighting. A beautiful wall lamp can be used as a decoration as well as a source of light at night. Remember to select a night light that can be dimmed so you can adjust the lighting level to your activity.
5. Decorations that Add Color to the Room
You can also add decorations such as ornamental plants as a finishing touch to give the impression of a fresh and comfortable bedroom. Choose small ornamental plants that don’t take up much space but can be a practical choice to make your bedroom look more fresh and beautiful. Place the plant in a corner of the room or on your work table to boost your enthusiasm for activities.
You can also hang some items or decorations on an empty room’s walls. Use wall shelves sparingly, as this can make the room appear cramped and claustrophobic.
A mirror is another decoration that can be used in a small room. Mirrors, when strategically placed, can give the impression of a larger room. There is no need to place numerous mirrors on the walls of the room; instead, place a large mirror facing the room’s door or window. This works well for creating an optical illusion that makes the room appear larger. Have fun decorating!
