One of the most challenging aspects of having a small bedroom is arranging the space in a way that feels comfortable, stylish and uncrowded. As an expert remodeling contractor, we share handy tips below on how to make the most of your small bedroom.
You need to take advantage of all the free space you have. Decluttering is an efficient way to reclaim room space. It may sound easy, but it actually is one of the most difficult things to do, as many people have trouble letting go of even the smallest things. But once you see the results, you???ll be stunned by how much more space you have, and how much more open your room feels.
Choose a Simple Layout and Practical Furnishings
You need to be efficient with your use of room space in home remodeling, especially in small bedrooms. Forget about doing something clever like diagonally positioning the bed from a corner. Instead, position the bead with the head ??? not the side ??? against the main wall. The space around the bed allows easier cleaning and space for nightstands on either side. Stick to normal-sized furnishings and avoid mini-furniture. Double-duty furniture, like an ottoman that functions as a footlocker, is ideal.
Maximize Natural Light Entry
Well-lit rooms tend to look bigger than they really are, so lots of natural lighting is always a plus. Choose window styles and window treatments that allow more natural light in. Slim window frames and glazing with coatings that block UV rays help you enjoy daylighting without the negative effects of the sun. They also give you more flexibility when it comes to room colors, including dark finishes.
Use Accents to Add Color
If you opted for a light- or neutral-colored bedroom, you can always use accents to add color, from small framed prints and colored vases, to rugs and comforters. The best part about such items is that you can change the combination as often as you want without having to repaint the room. And with small rooms, you’ll only need a few pieces to achieve the desired effect.
