Small space dwellers enjoy the luxury of close intimate spaces that are easy to fix. I take joy in the fact that cleaning a small messy room takes a lot less time. But there is no point denying it that all of us want to maximize the usable space.
If you are craving for a bedroom makeover but don’t think you have enough room, you have landed at the right place. According to experts, smaller areas need a strategic approach. Using the same space, you can create an illusion of a wider and brighter place. From light paint colors to installing a lot of mirrors, there are several ways to do that. This post is all about bedroom furniture ideas for small spaces.
Use any of these 8 incredible ideas to create a cozy and comfortable place to rest and recharge.
Opt For Slim Headboard And Bed Frame
The bed is the focal point of any bedroom and a lot can be changed about it to fit it in a small space. You don’t always have to compromise on its functionality or looks. Fortunately, there are ways to open up space and one of them is to opt for slim headboards and bed frames. Even a few inches of extra space can make a huge change.
The material for bed frames should be sturdy and durable enough so that headboard or frame takes less space but does not compromise its safety. Metal is certainly the best material for bed frames. Even the thin ones can be strong and stand the test of time.
Design preferences vary for every individual but the minimalist style is something that resonates with almost everyone. Maybe that’s the reason it is one of the most popular design ideas. Part ways with heavy and conspicuous furniture items and décor.
You can add space to your small bedroom by pairing it with the essential items that have been scaled down. Use sleek and contemporary built-ins for effective and clutter-free storage. They can store a lot of items while looking like not being there. Choose leaner tables and wall scones to increase the wall-space as well.
Get A Bed With Storage Underneath
It’s smart to opt for a simple modern platform bed instead of a footboard-style bed frame. What’s even smarter is to get a bed with storage underneath. A bed with drawers underneath can be an incredible choice for added storage.
For the narrow spaces where pulling out drawers is not so convenient, you can use decorative bins that can be used for keeping all those clothes. For adding an aesthetic touch to small bedroom décor try milk crates and woven baskets. I prefer using crates because they give you an additional shelve space that can be used to display your favorite décor items.
This may come as a surprise for you but loft living is still a thing. And rather an important adaptation for small space dwellers. If your bedroom has limited floor space and high ceilings, you can add a platform or loft for the sleeping area. It’s not a suitable option for everyone out there but for those who can climb stairs to reach their bed, this layout is pretty awesome.
Let’s not forget about the added privacy this provides! Make sure the layout is designed by a professional and the installation is also handled by an expert.
Corner Beds Can Help You Save Space
Narrow floor plans and limited space call for different approaches. As you can see, a lot of space-saving ideas are about beds. That’s easy to predict because the bed is certainly the largest piece of furniture in a bedroom.
While central beds look appealing and are very comfortable to use, corner beds can help you save space. Tuck up the bed against a wall or corner in your room. There was a time when I was afraid of corner beds but since I have felt the luxury of cozy corners, I vouch for this layout with all my heart and brain.
Install Floating Desks and Shelves
Cabinetry and desks both take up a lot of walls and floor space. In a small room, you cannot afford to lose even an inch of useful space. The best approach is to find alternatives that can fit in every interior décor.
Open shelving or floating shelves is a tried and tested way to increase wall space. While they need some extra time for keeping them organized, open shelving look quite impressive and sleek in modern bedrooms. The same holds for floating desks. You can tuck your chairs beneath the floating desks while you are not using them.
Choose High Contrast Color Schemes
The color of your bedroom furniture will not affect the usable space but can create an illusion of open or cluttered space. Interior designers prefer using high contrast color schemes for small spaces. The light and bright colors need to be in abundance whereas dark-colored furniture and décor items can be used to outline the features that need to be highlighted.
The best combination is of black and white but that does not mean you cannot throw in some colors. While you are at choosing the right colors, don’t forget about the impact of lighting. Make sure loads of natural light can enter the room.
Bedside Table Shelving
In any room that’s tight on space, multipurpose furniture items are more than welcome. One impressive way is to get bedside table shelving. These floating shelves can work great as nightstands. They come in a variety of colors, materials, and shapes so that you don’t have to sacrifice style.
