The planning and the thought process that goes behind the design process of the home, the part that is not given a profound thought, is the bedroom. As they are generally not on display, we tend to overlook the design and appropriate size. All you do is choose the wall where you find the bed to suit the best, get a few nightstands along with storage spaces, a dresser, a set of curtains, and the bedroom is complete. That’s a standard setup, and most probably, it works perfectly for someone, but a majority of people will feel suffocated and claustrophobic in it. The bedroom will be the place where you will relax and will spend a majority of your time, it must suit your vibe, and the space should welcome you and should also have proper ventilation. There are various instances where you just put in the items mentioned above, and there is no space left. A full-size bed will dominate the whole area, and it will start looking like a tiny corner. In this blog, we will discuss a few tips that you can follow to give your room a bit bigger look.
The paint job that you have in the bedroom will also significantly impact the feeling of spaciousness of the space. The color you are choosing for this room should offer smoothness, and there’s no need to find one that gives an energetic or bright feeling. Instead of more brilliant shades, you should go for some light and soft shadows.
Too Big Bed
The bed will end up occupying the whole space if it’s too big. Try to find one that’s in sync with the size of your room. If you are not replacing it with a better-sized one, it will remain the focal point, but there will be absolutely no space to maneuver or manage other things. The factor that might be behind the feeling that the bed has occupied the whole room is the headboard. If it’s too big, it will dominate the space.
Get Rid Of Nightstand/Furniture
The pieces of furniture that you don’t usually use should be immediately tossed out. We believe a nightstand is that piece if you have a window with an excellent sill to sit on and scroll through your favorite reader. Also, make sure that no desk is occupying an unnecessary space; move it to the study.
A Multi-Purpose Bed
The mattress is only needed at night, so you should have such an arrangement that it unfolds only in that time frame. In the daytime, it should fold into a sofa set or a place to sit and chill. You can also give it a makeshift working space, all you need to get is a coffee table, and you are done. These are the few tips that you should keep in mind while dealing with a smaller bedroom. You should keep fewer things on the floor as much as possible, it might not add the functionality, but it will make the room less airy.
No Lamps (Table/Floor)
It might sound funny to you how much space a lamp can occupy, well when there’s none, these tiny spaces matter quite a lot, and you must not install these lights in your bedroom. Move these lightings to go on the wall, and it will be a win-win situation. You can show some creativity by adding a swinging arm to be set according to the reading position.
