A rather small bedroom won’t allow too many decoration ideas.The most common classic formula consists of a bed with two nightstands a bed and a wardrobe that is often insufficient. But you can get creative and change things in your room to make it look bigger or to host much more stuff.
A first idea would be that you can replace the classic nightstands with shelves thus capitalizing on height space. You can custom build them so that the lower part takes over the role and appearance of what they replace. And now you will need a closet. One that is as big as possible so that you don’t lose any wall surface. But it’s not that easy. Given your room’s form you may not have an entire wall for that wardrobe. That’s why you should consider having the drawer in front of the bed (unlike the usual — sideways). You can even fit in your TV set. If that’s not an option as well how about a TV stand with drawers? It’s probably the best solution.
A lot of people misinterpret color for something definitely ‘bold’ but that is far from the truth. You can bring a colorful bed frame and headboard into your bedroom without actually splurging on a whole lot of vivaciousness! Pick out a bed frame in orange red or even purple but in a lighter tone and with a matte finish. These chic and smart beds are ideal for bedrooms with styles varying from shabby chic modern minimal and contemporary to something as extravagant as Hollywood Regency and retro. Once again make sure you choose the right headboard as this makes or breaks the look of the room in an instant.
We did already allude to the big reason why live-edge furniture and features like the reclaimed barn door are so very popular again. Many of us want to discover and re-discover our roots and once again find that connection with all things nature-centric. This means bedrooms are increasingly becoming less sterile and more cozy with each one having a personality of its own. Instead of trying to mimic the ‘catalog version’ homeowners now want bedrooms to reflect their personality and to act as relaxing getaways that transport them into a different dimension. Live-edge headboards definitely are a big part of this tranquil image!
If saving up precious square footage in your small bedroom is a priority then it is hard to find a nightstand that is far more efficient than one that is wall-mounted. Floating nightstands with a box-like design are a hot trend this season and you can easily add one to the bedroom without undertaking a major redecorating project. The best part about it is that even the forgotten corner next to the bed on the far side can also now feature a cool nightstand that also adds to the overall aesthetic.
Speak of space-savvy lighting and sconce always tend to spring to mind instantly as they require absolutely no foot space and are incredibly adaptable as well. Sconces in the bedroom trump pendants for when it comes to settings that are specifically crafted for bibliophiles and those who spend an hour or two each night glued to their iPads before sleep. It is flexible arms of sconce lights that make them such a hit and with the wide range of sizes and styles on offer they feel as much at home in tiny kids’ rooms as they do in large luxurious bedrooms.
