Small Bedroom Decorating Ideas
If your bedroom is so small it makes you feel claustrophobic yet you don’t have the finances to move into a bigger home, well with a just a small amount of paint, a new furniture layout and a little imagination, you can make your small bedroom feel much larger than it actually is. Here are a few small bedroom decorating ideas to help you to give your space that special facelift.
First of all, remove all unnecessary items of furniture, and any clutter from your room. The best way to create extra space and keep clutter to a minimum is by investing in multi-purpose furniture. Storage containers are a great way to store personal items and clutter and can be easily hidden under a bed or in a closet. The general idea is to maintain the larger, necessary items of furniture in the room and get rid of the smaller ones. For instance, one larger dresser instead of two small ones.
Not only will the larger furniture items look more sophisticated, but they can also make your bedroom feel much more spacious. Smaller items of furniture will typically make your room feel more cramped. Having said that, if your queen bed appears to be taking up an excessive amount of space in the room, then perhaps it’s time for a change to a full size bed. If you don’t want to abandon your queen bed then try to to cut back on other furniture pieces and at the same time, make your queen bed the main focal point in your room.
Remember, the more open floor area you have on show, the larger your bedroom will appear. Another good tip to give the feeling of space is to place your furniture at an angle, which makes your eye follow a longer distance, as opposed to the shorter wall.
Stay with paler color shades when considering painting the walls. Pastel shades, like light greens, blues browns and grays are usually a good choice. Patel shades not only have a calming effect, but paler colors will also reflect the light better, which will automatically make the room appear more spacious. On the other hand, darker color shades will tend to make a room feel more closed in, which you definitely don’t want. By painting the ceiling in a slightly lighter shade or even completely white will give the illusion of a much higher ceiling. Another useful tip is to paint any trims and moldings on the wall or around the window, in a lighter shade than the walls which will make the walls appear to be further back.

Natural light is cheap and the best form of lighting available. Replace those heavy drapes with light, ethereal window treatments. If you prefer to sleep in the dark, use window blinds to dim the light while you get some sleep. Come the morning it’s a simple task to roll up the shades and allow the natural light to stream it. You might consider swag curtains for your small bedroom window treatments. They are very fashionable, reasonably priced and look terrific with mini blinds.
Mirrors not only look classy but they will also help reflect any light creating an illusion of depth to a room. Try to position your mirrors so that they are facing a light source, for example, open windows and doors. Mirrored doors on a closet are a great choice for a small bedroom.
