It’s often impossible to increase the actual area of the room, but changing the visual volume is a real thing. If you want your small bedroom to look bigger, these tips are for you.
- The bed zone: an oversized headboard, a mirror wall, an accent wall or a horizontal decor above the headboard. An oversized headboard or accent wall draws attention away from the bed, which often dominates a small bedroom. A mirror wall or just covers always visually expand the room, and a horizontal strip visually expands the room.
- Less decor. Luxury is in the details, but don’t be over the top, just a little for windows and bed decorations.
- Light shadows. White on white, neural colors and white hidden lighting make your room look bigger. Apply this rule to everything from the linens to the wall and floor coverings.
- Little color. If you want to spice up the decor a bit, just add a few colorful accents – don’t overdo it.
- Floor-to-ceiling cabinets and windows. Not only do the wardrobes hold a lot of things, but your ceilings also look higher, just like windows.
Hidden storage locations. Use the space under the bed or under the windowsill as the hidden storage space looks smaller.
- Sliding doors. Every common door needs some space to open and close, sliding doors don’t. So the choice is yours.
- More free space. If there is little free space available, the room looks smaller. So solve this problem with hanging and wall furniture.
