Tips For Decorating Small Bedrooms

Nov 12, 2007
Making your small bedroom look big can seem like a challenge, but you'd be amazed at the decorating tricks that can be employed to do just that. Below are some tips you can use for decorating small bedrooms.

Pick out a design approach which you will love, but also a design which can help to make your room appear larger. You may also want to make sure to design in a lot of storage space so you can quickly put things away as clutter will make even a bigger bedroom look small.

Think about keeping your furniture and accessories in the small size range. One method to make good use of space is to use underbed storage, in lieu of bureas which will make the room look bigger but still allow storage of clothing. All small scaled items might be monotonous and you will want to break that up by using a few bigger pieces, so even though you may choose to go for the underbed storage, include a big cheval mirror, which not only gives a bit of drama and interest, but also gives off the feeling that the room is larger than it really is.

Another trick for decorating small bedrooms is to give some thought to where the accessories and furniture are going to be placed in the room. Even though a lot of people reject the principles of Feng Shui, the principle behind it could still be applied when setting up the furniture and accessories in your attic room. Furniture ought to be positioned away from the doors to allow easier access to the rooms as well as make it look more spacious. If you can, direct the eye from the open doorway to a bigger piece like a and this can help divert the eye and give the illusion of a larger room.

Designing a room with a distinct theme in mind may also help to make good use of the space. A sleek modern decor can be best as this de-emphasizes clutter and is likely to emphasize space. Because this should be a cozy, comfortable space picking a design style you like and can live with is a good idea.

Pick out the color palette for the attic room with care since just the right colors will help make it appear more spacious. You don't have to just use white or off white paint when making up for a small size in a room. You can throw away that boring white and make use of a monochromatic color scheme, or try colors that have identical intensity and still not make the room look small sized. So you should plan to go for all blue gray, or bright colors in red and orange. You can additionally add unique interest and depth to a room by painting an opposing wall a deep, intense hue. A blue gray paint color is really nice for decorative appeal and for also making the walls appear to recede, hence making the room seem bigger. If you want something a lot of colorful, cool colors like purple, green and blue will have the same illusion.

When decorating small bedrooms, it's a good idea to keep in mind that sometimes less is more. Having an uncluttered space that has a lot of style will make any room appealing no matter how small it is.
