Small bedroom ideas – Adding layers of texture and experimenting with different color choices to turn your cozy bedroom into a dream haven need not be a challenge. From shelving to corner beds and clever furniture pieces, here are 13 small bedroom ideas to help you create the illusion of a bigger room.
1. Contrasting Colors to Open Up the Space
To add an elegant and sophisticated touch to your cozy bedroom, use black and white decoration as the classic color combination. White is a neutral color that serves as a solid backdrop, and as you can see in this image, it works very well for opening up the space, thanks to the matching bedding and wall accessories as added layers.
2. Opt for Bunk Bed with Storage for Kids’ Bedroom
Children’s bedrooms are always smaller than other rooms. In a household of 2 or more children, opting for a double bunk bed under a single bed in a shared room would mean your kids will have more space to play with. The bedroom in this image shows a chest of drawers for storing clothes, but there is also additional storage space under the bunk bed.
3. Lack of Bedrooms? Just Add a Corner Bed For your Child
The matching bedding of the double bed with the child’s corner bed makes this minimalist bedroom feel cozy. What’s more, the double-size wardrobe means there is plenty of storage room for all. There are also two matching side tables for the child and the parents with a large and small window as the perfect additions.
4. Go for the Unconventional Look
The white walls and tall windows take the focus away from the messy, unmade bed. The lack of storage in this room hasn’t proved to be a problem as the wall is used for hanging the essential items and the floor is used for the decorative pieces.
5. Create a Corner Work Space
In this bedroom, a small corner desk provides a working space with just the right amount of lighting from the small window. The mounted TV is positioned in a way that makes watching TV from bed very comfortable indeed.
6. Make the Guest Bedroom Functional with Built-in Wardrobe
This small but functional guest bedroom with wall decals is the perfect picture of how to use the space wisely. The integrated shelves in the wardrobe provide adequate storage.
7. Accentuate the Wooden Floor with Natural Materials
This image shows how the hardwood floor is the focal point of the room. The surrounding decoration consists of plants and a wooden bed as the perfect complements to the natural flooring. Even the shelving is made from real wood and other natural materials.
8. Adopt the Same Style as Small Hotel Rooms
This bedroom is overly furnished and feels almost too suffocating. It’s the classic example of a budget hotel room, but there are some things you can do to lessen the claustrophobic feeling: open the balcony door to let air and natural light flood the room.
9. Floor-to-Ceiling Mirrors For an Illusion of Space
Covering an entire wall with floor-to-ceiling mirrors is a great way to fill the wall space and create the illusion of spaciousness in a small bedroom. Paired with a classy chandelier and a series of recess lights on the ceiling, this bedroom looks and feels bigger than it really is.
10. No Space for a Wardrobe? Use a Storage Bed Instead
A quick lifting of the mattress reveals the ample storage space underneath the bed. This idea works in tight bedrooms that have limited space for a wardrobe.
11. Match the Wooden Ceiling with the Bed Frame
The white dormer wooden ceiling is a perfect complement to the brown wooden bed frame. The side tables are also made of wood to match the bed.
12. Employ More Space with Built-in Wall Cabinets & Shelves
All built-in furniture on the wall has saved much space for the room. Moreover, this teenager’s functional bedroom has incorporated purple and blue color schemes that blend perfectly with the divan bed, wall cabinets and shelves.
13. Even the Narrowest Bedroom Can be Transformed
This before and after image of a teenager’s bedroom is proof that even the most compact bedrooms can be turned into functional rooms. The built-in wall cabinets and wardrobe are beautifully matched with the rest of the room’s decor. There is even a study desk fitted in front of the small window.
