In a small bedroom it is essential that you do your homework on the type of bed you want. After all your bed will be the main focus and you need it to work hard for its space. Unless you’ve already got copious amounts of storage, we would highly recommend looking at our range of storage beds. These beds basically utilise the space underneath the bed to maximise on available storage. Our storage beds come in two forms. You can chose from either a bed with drawers or an ottoman bed. The advantage of an ottoman bed over a bed with drawers is that it utilises the entire space beneath. In fact, an ottoman bed offers up to four times the amount of storage as a standard four drawer divan! Our storage beds come in a multitude of styles. To create a modern feel then you should look for a bed that has clean lines and simple good looks.
Fitted wardrobes can be a game changer in a small bedroom. As opposed to free standing wardrobes, fitted wardrobes utilise space much more efficiently. For example, fitted wardobes are often designed to go from floor to ceiling. This means as far as storage goes you get a lot more bang for your buck.
Modern schemes favour an uncluttered look so it is essential that you strip back your bedroom to the bare essentials. If a piece of furniture isn’t required then banish it from the bedroom. Try to only have pieces of furniture that offer high levels of functionality. As regards ornaments try to only have a few prized possessions on display. Remember less is more! What’s more, an uncluttered bedroom is more conducive to a good night’s kip so it’s a win- win situation.
Paint can have a transformative effect in any room. If your aim is to create a bedroom that feels more spacious than it actually is then light neutral colours are a must. However, if you feel a little daring then you could create a room with a cosseting feel. To do this then you should to go to the dark side and use colours such as a deep navy blue.
The oldest trick in the book for making a room look bigger is by using mirrors. Because mirrors reflect light they trick the eye into thinking that a space is much bigger. Mirrors can be utilised in several ways. For example, mirrored wardrobes are a great way of adding impact to a small space. Or perhaps you could place a mirror behind a table lamp to reflect more light back into a bedroom. Being clever with mirrors might seemed cliché but it works a treat and should always be considered in a small space.
