Space-saving bedroom design: a secret closet
Shelving and additional rails are always useful additions to a small bedroom's storage options. A smaller bedroom doesn't have to mean a smaller wardrobe. Clotilde Passalacqua, IKEA UK and Ireland's Interior Design Leader, says, "With clever storage compartments like GIMSE, clothes can be sorted and stored away while keeping the room looking tidy." "Make the most of your closet by utilizing SLKTING's storage compartments to neatly arrange your garments. '

Ideas for a small bedroom: accessorize to add color
A white room will automatically feel more open and bright, so try adding splashes of color with throw pillows, throw blankets, and throw rugs. The sweet color palette of this design scheme is based on light, chalky pastels that bring visual interest without overwhelming the room's natural light.

Color scheme for a small bedroom
According to Charlotte Cosby, Head of Creative at Farrow & Ball, "sticking to one color will help create the feeling of more space in a small room, as with no point of reference and no contrasts, you're less aware of where things stop and start."
Darker colors, like Sulking Room Pink or Treron, help make a small room seem larger, so long as the light is coming from the right direction. Use whites that are a few shades lighter than the wall color to avoid making the ceiling seem lower if you're not confident using a single color, like Parma Gray or School House White. '

Bed as focal point, in a small bedroom
It's okay to put a king-size bed in a queen-sized room. It can be arranged with other pieces of furniture, and it can even be used as a foundation for concealed storage. Under-bed storage allows you to have the eye-catching bed of your dreams even if you don't have a lot of extra space for furniture.

Storage solutions for a small bedroom above the bed
If you need more storage but have limited room on the ground, installing an overhead unit is a great option. If you have a small bedroom and need somewhere to store your books, accessories, extra bedding, or towels, look no further than these 42cm deep storage units from IKEA. Putting a slim desk there would make it the ultimate multi-use area, and we love that idea.

If your bedroom is on the smaller side, consider making one wall the focal point.
Create a focal point by painting one wall in your tiny bedroom a striking color. When wallpapered throughout, a room takes on a much cozier vibe, but when limited to just one wall, the space feels more open and dynamic. Experiment with wallpaper or wood paneling in a Scandinavian style.

Maximize your use of window area for small bedrooms.
A brilliant solution for even the tiniest of bedrooms Look to the windowsill if you need to maximize every square foot of floor space. If there is enough room, you could install a shallow shelf there to store your reading materials. Create a window seat with simple upholstery and scatter cushions if you have the space (you'll need at least 16 inches).

Ideas for a small bedroom: a light carpet
When used on large surfaces like walls and floors, light, neutral colors reflect more light and create a sense of expansiveness. Carpets and wooden floors should be a neutral color like beige or a soft blush to avoid drawing too much attention to themselves. One more space-saving trick in this modern bedroom is the use of a cute little shelf as a bedside table.

Tips for decorating a small bedroom with paint
Small bedrooms benefit from having no headboard or having one with a painted 2D effect. Annie Sloan says, "It's a great way to make a statement to use paint to emulate furniture shapes into 2D on your wall." "For optimal results, work within the confines of your bed and build outward from that width." '
Annie Sloan has the paint you need to complete the look, including Old Ochre, Honfleur, and Scandinavian Pink.

Tips for decorating a small bedroom
Decorating a small bedroom calls for some strategic styling. Lighting can be improved by adding mirrors and mirrored furniture. It will make even the smallest bedroom seem spacious and bright. The number of mirrors you use is a variable that should be explored. Whether they are long and flowing or short and round, mirrors are a staple in nearly every bathroom. More can be chosen (within reason) to make the space feel brighter.

Space-saving furniture: hidden beds
What a great idea it is to incorporate storage space, like an ottoman at the foot of the bed, into a compact bedroom! It's important to leave enough floor space for easy movement when furnishing a small bedroom so that you don't injure yourself by stumbling over furniture and other items. Caitlin Price recommends measuring the distance from the floor to the base of your bed in order to determine whether or not a storage bed with drawers or an ottoman lift is feasible within your budget.
