Small Bedroom Space Ideas and Tips

These days the trend often tells you that modern and luxurious design ideas mean a sitting area, small office and a king size bedroom. Don’t forget that a bedroom’s main function is to be a place to rest and recharge and for that you don’t need to have a king size bedroom to create a beautiful space to do so.Is it getting difficult for you to find furniture that can fit your home? If you’ve got small space but still want to give it your own personal interior design touch, YOU CAN! We’ve got beautiful small bedroom ideas that can make any small room look so spacious.

In fact, having a small bedroom might be just ideal for a good night’s sleep. The American Sleep Association recommends keeping stimulating activities out of the bedroom. They warn that distractions like TV, internet, and work can disrupt your sleep patterns. So, the less there is to do in your bedroom, the more sleep you set yourself up for. That’s perfect for designing a small bedroom!

These are ten small bedroom ideas and tips that can help create that perfect space for you and make it still feel roomy.

1. Keep Colors Light and Bright

Color white is the perfect color to choose when decorating small spaces. It is an expansive and practical choice for a small bedroom. The color helps the space from not looking too busy or boxed in. Using white or lighter colors combats the absence of large wall space or windows to brighten up the space.

Are you worried that your room will look to plain or with no personality? Well don’t let the color stop you from choosing white. An interior design trick is to layer those whites with different patterns or different shades of white so it doesn’t look too plain. In the bedroom above, the simple addition of a patterned throw and chrome bedside lamps transforms the room for sterile to stylish.

2. Push Your Bed Up Against a Corner

Usually the pictures you see of bedrooms the bed is centered but a tip for you is to move that bed to a corner. This move creates a bigger space and does not make your room feel so crammed.

Do you think you’re back in your college days when moving that bed to the corner? Easy, just add a two headboard corner system. This tip makes your room look more stylish!

3. Skip the Bulky Bed Frame


A few inches of extra space can be vital in a small bedroom. Part ways with your footboard-style bed frame and replace it with a simple modern headboard to finish the look of your bed. You can get rid of your bulky bed and find comfort and more space with a simple bed frame. If you find it too simple you can always decorate the space above the headboard with are or pictures to fill up that side of the wall.

4. Embrace Minimalism

Add space to your bedroom by paring it down to your favorite essentials. The focus of this space is undeniably the bed, so keep furniture pieces and accessories down to a minimum.

Even better, use sleek, contemporary built-ins for additional storage. A good built-in around your bed creates a cozy sleeping nook while adding plenty of storage. Remember that in a bedroom you need just the essentials and no more for a good night’s sleep.

5. Add Storage Under the Bed

While small bedrooms can make it difficult for you to have dressers or chest there are many beds that come with a storage at the bottom. That extra storage that normally would be on one wall and take up so much space can be underneath your bed. If space is so limited that drawers may not open easily, use decorative bins under your bed for additional storage. We love milk crates and other woven baskets that hold up well and look great doing it.
