Even a small bedroom can be stylish, cozy and functional. These simple ideas and ¨lifehacks¨ will help you create such interior in a small area.
The small size of the room is not a reason to give up comfort. Of course, you have to make a little effort to make it functional and beautiful. But if you think creatively, using every square centimeter wisely, and sometimes applying different tricks that visually increase the space, creating a stylish, practical and cozy interior is not so difficult. These 7 decorating solutions will help you in this matter.
1. Alternative storage
For any small bedroom the storage problem is especially relevant, so any free surface should be used to the maximum. Hooks on the walls, shelves, a compact hanger – all this is welcome in small rooms. A practical solution is a decorative staircase: it needs a minimum of space on the floor and at the same time uses the ceiling height to the maximum, it can serve as a clothes hanger and as a wonderful decoration of your interior. The black staircase will look good in a bright room, acting as a graphic accent. It can be supplemented with hooks and hanging containers for storing small items.
A hanging bar with hangers for clothes can also be a good option for a small room, and a beautiful dressing gown can simply be hung on the door and it will be a stylish decoration of your interior.
2. Shades of grey
Light shades create the illusion of air and space, even if the room is not too big. But if you are not a big fan of white, with the same success you can use light grey shades. The main thing is to choose matte paints which reflect daylight better. Complete the interior with grey details and a couple of color accents – and you will get a spectacular bedroom, where you will enjoy spending time and relax.
3. Additional storage
In a small bedroom sometimes there is no place for a spacious wardrobe. But even if you do have a wardrobe, additional storage space is always a good idea. Therefore, be sure to use the space under the bed, using a podium or a frame with drawers.
In one-room apartments, the bedroom is often combined with the living room. But there are a few tricks that will help zoning the space and create an isolated bedroom, without any major redevelopment. The best alternative to walls is a glass partition that is easy to install and allows light to pass through. To create an intimate atmosphere in the room, you can hang the curtains from the ceiling to the floor and pull them if necessary, completely fencing off from the rest of the world.
5. Multifunctional furniture
A folding sofa bed can be a good alternative to a regular bed in a small room. But from a regular bed you can make a kind of sofa, if you just put its long side against the wall and decorate with beautiful pillows (they will serve as the back). Of course, this option is more for a narrow single bed, however the option with a double bed is not so bad too?
Zoning the space is possible without partitions. It is enough, for example, to install a high rack: it will create a clear border between the bedroom and the rest of the space, but at the same time it will let in light and will not “burden” the interior.
Good old trick, visually increasing the space – mirrors. The game of reflections makes any small room bigger. In addition, mirror glass reflects daylight and makes the room brighter. To achieve a greater effect, place a mirror in front of the window.
