Small bedrooms often look congested and crowded, as they lack floor space as well as storage space. Bedrooms are meant to be cozy, comfortable and relaxing, however, the clutter caused by over-sized furniture gives the room a suffocating feeling. How we wish our bedroom was bigger!
Most of us pay little attention to proportion and purchase furniture that fits into our bedrooms, not realizing that proportion also plays a very important role. Nevertheless, there are several ways in which small bedrooms can be made to look more spacious and bigger. With proper lighting, wardrobes, bed, mirrors, etc. the small bedroom can be decorated in a way that makes it look very appealing and elegant.
Purchasing the right kind of furniture for a small bedroom is crucial, because the furniture purchased can either make or break the look of a room. Because the room is small, it is important to remember bulky furniture, no matter how gorgeous it looks, will just make the room look cluttered. So, while considering bedroom furniture, it is important to purchase smaller units. Then again, it is important to remember not to fill the room with lots of tiny pieces of furniture. This will again give a cluttered look. Thus, it is essential to purchase a few pieces of furniture, whose size is in proportion to the size of the bedroom, so that it will balance the look of the room.
Go Queen-size
In general, we are to limit the pieces of furniture in a bedroom, however, a bedroom cannot do without a bed and closet, so these come under the non-negotiables. Nevertheless, what has to be taken into consideration is the size. You cannot have a king-sized bed in a small bedroom. It would just make the room look smaller. The more floor space a bed occupies, the smaller the room will look! Allowing the sheets to fall off the sides will also give a more spacious feel to the room.
It is also advisable to use beds made of thin metal frames for small bedrooms. This is because thin metal frames provide more visual wall space and give the feeling of a spacious room. Bulky beds take up more of the floor area and reveals lesser wall area, giving a feeling that the room is crowded. You could also go for the Hind's bed which can be folded into half and bolted. However, before purchasing any bed, check if the bed fits properly into your bedroom.
Folding beds or murphy beds are common space-saving alternatives, which fold away into the wall. Varieties of murphy beds are available, which when folded resemble parts of closets from the outside. However, if you are the kind who doesn't want to do away with your double bed, then you could go for a 'platform bed'. Platform beds are beds which are low in height and appear to be bigger in the room. They also come with storage space, and are good options for small bedrooms.
Built-in Closets or Wardrobes
As far as the closet is considered, it would be best to have in-built closets, which save floor space. If you choose to have standalone wardrobes, it's best to use tall ones, which not only use more vertical space, but also provide more storage space. Using taller cupboards or closets, helps utilize space well. Sliding doors for the wardrobes will also be a good idea. Having mirrors placed on the doors of the closets will help make the room look more spacious.
Kid's bedrooms have to done-up creatively. As far as beds are concerned, bunk beds are ideal if you have two or more kids. Bunk beds save a lot of floor space and also provide storage facility. You can also get loft beds, which have desks below them. This saves space. Then there are futon beds, which appear like sofas throughout the day, and can be extended to form a bed at night. To save floor space, you can be creative and construct shelves around the bed itself. This will not only give you storage space and floor space, but will also give a stylish look to the room.
