Small Bedroom Designs
Functional small bedroom designs can make a room look larger and create a great space for a guest or childs room.
You can use a few simple design tricks to make the room look bigger, keep the décor simple and eliminate clutter.
When planning your small bedroom design, make sure you put in only that which is necessary. Don't clutter the room with extra furniture or accessories as this will only make the room look smaller. If you already have stuff in the room, take a good look at what you have and toss out those things that are not necessary.
Small bedroom designs call for small furniture. I don't mean that you want to get miniature furniture that no on will fit in, but consider the scale when buying furniture. You might want to go with a full or twin size bed instead of a queen and nix the head and foot boards. You can draw a great stencil on the wall as a head board or hang a piece of art. Use lingerie chests as bureaus so they don't take up as much floor space, or better yet - organize the closet so that you don't even need a bureau at all!
Using a light colored wall paint and avoiding wall paper can help your small bedroom design seem larger. If you have sliding closet doors, cover them in mirrors which will help to hide the ugly old doors while making the room seem a bit more spacious. Keep the flooring 1 color - if you can install hard wood or tiles that can be laid on a diagonal this will help draw the eye across the room and create the illusion of even more space.
Use simple curtains, lampshades, wall art and accessories. In a small bedroom design, plain is better as too much pattern makes the room seem cluttered. Creating a simple open feel will make the room seem more airy and larger.
Make sure you have adequate lighting in the room as this will help eliminate that closed in feeling that small rooms can have.
