How to Decorate a Small Bedroom

Most examples of great interior design take place in cavernous rooms with huge panoramic windows and acres of floor space. Unfortunately, most of us aren’t lucky enough to be blessed with such massive houses. The UK actually has some of the smallest houses in the world on average. This is especially true of our bedrooms which can get really cramped, with many families now having to partition one bedroom into two. This can lead to frustrating attempts at choosing furniture and layout for a bedroom. If you have been having problems with trying to decorate and furnish a smaller sized bedroom, here are some great tips to help you create a paradise for sleep no matter what the size.

Create a Focal Point

Cantering your design around an eye catching piece in your room establishes a hierarchy, making the room look less jumbled. A more organised room will give the room a larger appearance, rather than a muddled mess which will make the room look smaller. A good focal point is usually above the head of your bed. Either putting the bed in front of the window or placing a striking piece of art above is a great way of drawing the eye and establishing a centre point.

Buy the Right Sized Furniture

That new king sized bed and giant chest of drawers might seem like a great idea but it is always best to plan what sort of furniture can actually fit in your room. It is always a good idea to leave some open floor space in your room and don’t try and cram in as much as you possibly can. A good idea is to draw out a floor plan of the room and mock up a few ideas of what size furniture you can place within the room. This will give you a good idea of what sizes you are looking for when you go out furniture shopping.

Make Sure You Have Enough Storage

It can be difficult to find enough storage when space is limited, which is why you need to come up with a few ways to sneak in extra storage. For instance, a storage bed is the perfect way to maximise storage space in a small area. Lloyds Storage Beds offer a range of beds which hold a great deal of space inside, from double and single storage beds to fabric storage beds. Investing in a bed from Lloyds is a great way to make the most of a small bedroom.

Don’t Over-Decorate

It’s easy to go overboard when adding embellishments and colour to a small bedroom. However, this can actually make it feel claustrophobic. When choosing colours, it is best to focus on one primary colour and one secondary as this will keep your aesthetic simple and clean. Don’t buy too many ornaments or pieces of art, as this will definitely just make the room feel cramped.
