Decorating small bedrooms and making the most of limited space can be rewarding. Simple design strategies can transform your small space and maximize it so that your bedroom reflects your style and personality. Your design personality and preference is important as small space decorating doesn’t mean compromising on style. Begin your bedroom decorating by choosing an art piece that can be your inspiration for the color scheme and accessories. The artwork can also help you create a focal point for the bedroom.Choose a large, over-scaled painting in vivid colors for your bedroom. The scale of the painting adds a new dimension to your space and gives the bedroom the appearance of a larger area. Hang it above the bed or on the wall behind your desk. The painting serves as an anchor and defines separate living zones such as the sleeping space and work area.Like art, paint and wallpaper are important design aspects of small space decorating. Narrow stripes created with wallpaper or decals along with paint can add visual room to your bedroom. If your bedroom has a low ceiling, vertical stripes create the illusion of height while narrow horizontal stripes across the room make the space feel wider.
Lighting is an important aspect to remember when decorating small bedrooms. Opt for sconces, chandeliers, pendants and ceiling fixtures as sources of task and ambient lighting to save floor space. Sconces on either side of the bed are a great alternative to table lamps and they provide task lighting for reading or working in bed. They maximize side table space by keeping bedside tables clear for books and other everyday essentials. Opt for smart designs such as swivel-arm sconces for changing the focus or plug-in sconces that don’t need much installation for small space decorating.
Select smart furniture that fulfills your needs when decorating small bedrooms. If you will be using your bedroom as a work space, consider using a C-table as a space-saving desk. The frame of this table is shaped like the letter ‘C’ which leaves one side free so the table pulls right up to the bed. The table is perfect for your laptop and can function as a side table when not in use. It’s also an ideal serving surface for breakfast in bed.
