Large rooms with a lot of space are great for interior decor. There’s potential to add more furniture, experiment with design accents, and most importantly, enjoy the airy ambience. But, most people aren’t as fortunate to have the luxury of owning a house with a 300 square feet bedroom.
However, this doesn’t mean that you can’t design a beautiful space for yourself. If you can figure out the right elements and put creative thought into it, chances are you could make your bedroom look larger than it actually is.
Here are six smart ideas to make your small bedroom look bigger.
Do Not Paint Your Room With Dark Colours
Dark colours such as black or maroon tend to absorb light. If you are looking to provide your room with a larger outlook, we recommend that you opt for lighter tones such as lighter shades of olive green or turquoise blue. Not only that your room will feel airier, but it will provide you with a fresh and pleasant vibe.
Use A Suitable Headboard
The wrong headboard size can ruin the look of your bedroom. If it’s too tall, it’s going to stand out in an off-putting manner, and if it’s too small, there’s no point in having a headboard at all. Even if you have a headboard chesterfield style, one of the most in-trend styles today, it won’t compliment your room if it’s not the right size or texture.
Of course, you could also remove the headboard altogether and replace it with shelves or built-in shelf panels around the bed. This will create the illusion of depth in the wall, which you can use to place books, keys, photo frames, etc.
Get Rid Of All Superfluous Items
As much as a bedroom can be someone’s cosy spot, it also often becomes that place where people dump unwanted things, making it messy and cluttered. Also, many people tend to overload their bedrooms with unnecessary items and useless furniture. One of the best ways to maximise the space is to avoid clutter. Make a checklist of things you actually use in your bedroom. You’d be surprised to see how much you can leave out.
Go For Low Height Furniture
If you want your small bedroom to appear bigger, it is always a good idea to stay away from large pieces of furniture that might be too bulky for your bedroom. Keeping furniture low to the ground will make the ceiling appear higher.
Also, you can consider a platform bed. Keeping the bed on the ground helps the ceiling look taller.
Adding mirrors is another trick to make your bedroom look bigger and more spacious. Mirror reflection generally creates an illusion of a larger space. This is why mirrors are widely used in commercial spaces such as gyms and large hotels, where you expect an airy ambience. As for your bedroom, you could use a corner floor mirror or circular vanity mirror that you could neatly place on a shelf or on the wall.
Of course, the colour and texture of drapes matter. But the length helps your room look bigger. Long drapes that go all the way down to the floor add depth and a layer of texture, giving it a larger and more dynamic appearance.
That wraps up the six tips that can help you transform your small room into a neat and airier space. We cannot stress enough how clearing clutter can do wonders with home interiors. With a little bit of creative touch and minimalism, you’ll have a cosier space that looks larger than it actually is.
