Indeed, it can be tempting to neglect a small bedroom because you don’t know what to do with it. However, we’re here to tell you that there is hope! There is lots you can do to make the most of a smaller bedroom. Here are top 5 tips on how to make the most of small bedroom.
If you’re tight on space, then it makes sense to invest in furniture that is multi-functional. The type of bed that you invest in will be dependent on your requirements. For example, if the bed is to be slept on regularly then it’s primary purpose should be that it is comfortable and suitable for daily use. After this you might want to look at a bed that offers storage to ensure that your space is being maximized to its full potential. To get the most storage possible then an ottoman bed is the perfect solution. These beds offer up to four times the amount of storage space as a conventional 4 drawer divan. In a small room, every square inch counts!
However, if you want to use your bedroom primarily as a study then something like a sofa bed may be more practical. This way you can free up valuable space and have bed when required.
Often Children’s bedrooms are on the smaller side and there are some great solutions out there for them too. We have a fantastic selection of both mid and high sleepers that have an array of furniture with them. For example, some come with drawers and a desk whilst others come with wardrobes.
If you’re constricted on space in a bedroom, then it may be worth considering a small double bed. These beds are 6 inches narrower than a standard double bed. Although this might not sound much, you’d be surprised at the difference this can make. For example, it may be the difference between you being able to maneuver comfortably around the room. It may even free up some space for other furniture that you want in a room.
If you are trying to keep the dimensions of your bed to a minimum, we recommend looking at our range of divan beds. Because the mattress sits directly on top of the base, these beds take up the least amount of space possible. This is as opposed to framed beds that can be considerably wider than the mattress.
When decorating a small bedroom, most people assume that everything needs to be kept as diminutive as possible. However, a bed with a tall headboard can help to create the illusion of space. If you opt for a headboard with vertical stitching this can draw the eye upwards and trick the eye into thinking the ceiling is higher than it is.
If the idea is to create a feeling of space then painting your walls in lighter colours can help to push the walls out. Whilst pure white can feel stark, there are lots of shades of white that can feel more welcoming. If you can’t stand to live without colour then you can bring some in with your soft furnishings.
