When you have a small bedroom, itís hard to envision bringing many styles to the space. You have whatís necessary for your room, trying to cram everything in one tiny space. Just remember one key point: Every room needs a focal point. This means that your bed will most likely be that eye-catching spot in the room. Namely, the head of the bed will be what catches your eye. Below, youíll find some more tips to make the most use of your small bedroom. 


Think Open


While it can be tempting to try and cram things into a small room, making the most use of every inch of space possible, you want to actually do the opposite. This means placing beds against the walls or near a window, buying a smaller sized bed, and finding furniture thatís not overwhelming. Other tricks are to eliminate the headboard and footboard or use more see-through options for the furnishings. 


Keep It Bold And Unique


Just because you have a small bedroom doesnít mean that the space needs to be bland. Donít be afraid to either make the room bold with color or rich with texture. Choose your color palette wisely. Donít be afraid to express yourself or whoever the resident of the room is. Is the small bedroom a nursery? Keep it light and fun. Donít make the room too stuffy. If the bedroom belongs to a sports fan, hang lots of favorite sports memorabilia photos. Often, if a room has a lot of expression, it distracts from the small size of the space. The idea is to make your bedroom special, no matter what size it is.   


Everything Is Potential Storage 


In a small bedroom, storage can be a problem. Thereís many creative solutions to solve this space dilemma. You can put the bed up on blocks for more under bed storage. Use a storage chest as a bedside table. This will help you to have the furnishings you need, yet they will double as storage units.


Combat A Low Ceiling


The brighter a room, the less attraction will be drawn to a low ceiling. Slanted ceilings are often a problem in smaller bedrooms, but bright colors can combat the closed in feeling and leave the bedroom feeling more open.             


Furniture Tips


When shopping for furniture for your small bedroom, try to find pieces with rounded corners. This will help keep your limited walkway space in the room clear, as it takes up less space than traditional angled corners. You can really add character to a room using rounded nightstands, ottomans, and more accents.
