Small Bedroom Layout Ideas

Apartment owners may wonder, why the room that is expected to house large furniture like bed and storage can be so small. So, our options would be squezzing the size of the bed and using small storage and maybe, not using a nightstand. Is that true?

However, there are plenty of benefits for small bedroom. We don’t need any furnishing and adding seating in the room that we don’t really need. We also do not need to decorate the space for any accessory we actually don’t need.

And now, some tips from designers on how to make a small bedroom cozy.

  • We can put the bed at the middle of the room

Pushing the bed againts a wall is good. But placing the bed at the middle of the room can make the flow of the room feels better. We can access the bed from both sides.

However, there’s one thing to remember:

  • Bring plenty of natural light

Natural light is a key to make a room feels fresh. It is the easiest and most comfortable way to make a small bedroom far from feeling dark. Painting dark wall doesn’t mean that the room has be felt like a cave.

At night, we can use chaldelier and pendant lamp to make the room bright. Also, we can add task light or accent light to create and ambience.

If the small room is painted dark, we are sure will need more light. Dark paint willl make the room feels darker and at night, we need a little bit more light.

  • Bring color accents

Some people just can’t stand having a neutral-only bedroom. All white bedroom looks terrible and we need to bring some color accent into the bedroom.

And, it shouldn’t be that difficult. A colorful wall art can help as well as colorful rug. Well, if you are not sure yet, start with black and white combination first. We can start from the rug and add more colorful layers later.

Having colorful bedroom can give more fun than having only white or black colors. Vibrant colors make the room vibrant too. And, we can add colors by adding colorful wallpaper and rug as well as other accessories.

  • Bring normal-sized furniture

The point is, we can have a bedroom with full functionality. That’s a comfort. We can have a space with full functionality that gives us some freedom. Small table would add another restraint in small bedroom. Small chair also is not comfortable. We need a table to get our job done and we need a chair where we can sit comfortably for hours.  Another restraint will be just irritating.

  • Bring large accessories

Area rug is one of the most important in a small room. We can use area rug that fits all the floor and even a large bed canopy. The unexpected design would look wonderful.

  • Bring outdoors in

We can use small plant and pot for a small bedroom. The bedroom would be more fresh to look at and feel.

Also, we can store vertically too anything we have in the room.
