Small room decorating ideas
Paint the walls in light colors
A common point in almost all the images is that the walls are painted white or light colors. It takes a lot to paint the rooms in bright colors, or paint a wall in a dark color, but to decorate small rooms it is not a good idea.
To have greater feeling of spaciousness we need to “not see the walls”, as if they weren’t there, and for that the best color is white.
Lighting a small bedroom is key
If the room has large windows, take advantage of them, do not cover them with blackout curtains. If you don’t have too much natural light, light up the room well with white light lamps. Well-lit spaces appear larger.
Don’t be afraid to put a big bed
As you see in the photos, large beds are a good option in small rooms, contrary to what it may seem. A large bed takes up more, but gives the feeling of being in a larger space, if a large bed fits, the room is not so small.
Place mirrors to make it look older
The big mirrors They are another resource widely used in the decoration of small bedrooms. They make us have the feeling that the space is twice as large, in addition to increasing the luminosity, so it does double duty.
Decorate the small room in the minimalist style
Add more space to the room by reducing the decor and furniture as much as possible. The bed is the most important element, everything else the less the better. I know that cabinets are essential in a bedroom, so in the next tip we will see vertical storage ideas that take up little space.
Put a trundle bed underneath to store things, or directly place it on a large chest of drawers. You can also take advantage of the wall to make an open closet, if you have it tidy it is super nice and does not subtract visual space like traditional cabinets.
Glue the bed to a corner of the bedroom
Most double bedrooms choose to place the bed in the middle of the wall, but this takes up a lot of space for passage. Try to glue the bed to a corner and you will see how you get more space, both visual and functional.
In the example below we see that it does not follow the rule of painting the walls white, but it compensates for it by putting many lamps. My advice to decorate small rooms is do not risk and play it safe, white walls and lots of light, so it will appear bigger.
