Color is one of the most important elements in any room for a small bedroom use light colors on the walls, floor and on your furniture. It’s a generally known fact that light colors make a room look bigger and brighter.
A room with light colors feels bigger and brighter because the walls are more reflective, making a space feel open and airy, which helps maximize the effect created by natural light. Dark colors, on the other hand, tend to absorb light, making a room look smaller.
Using light colors will make your walls appear to recede creating a bright feel. The favorite colors for a small bedroom are white, light gray, neutrals and cool colors like blue or green but in a very light tone to make your bedroom fresh, brighter and calming.

Positioning a mirror to reflect the light of a window is also the only way to up the natural light in your space. There are different ways to place a mirror in your bedroom, for example: Find a body-length mirror and lean it up against the wall you can cover an entire wall with modular mirrors, or cover the sliding doors of your closet or use a big one as a focal point above your bedhead.
Also, incorporating some mirrored furniture is a clever way to reflect light, Don’t be afraid to play around with more than one mirror but be sure that they don’t have overloaded or detailed frames.
Remember that in small spaces clean lines are the best choice. Push your bed up against a corner. Most bedroom styles feature the bed placed on the center of the wall with a nightstand on each side. However, narrow floor plans and limited space often call for a deviation of this.
To maximize the floor space and to have a comfortable way to circulate or just to place other furniture into your bedroom, like a desk, dresser or a vanity table, tuck your bed up against a corner in order to have only one circulation area instead of two to arrive to your bed and to save the most space possible to be used for other furniture and activities.
Be creative with your nightstands If you want to maximize every inch and be very stylish, a wall mounted solution is the best way to store your nighttime essentials without using any floor space. It’s clean, contemporary, inexpensive, and very, very easy to install.
This levitation acts as a trick to the eye by freeing up visual space and making the room feel larger, and it also leaves floor space open for even more storage. Also if you have a nightstand for both sides you can break the symmetry with two different styles shapes and to have night tables with a different kind of storage or use.
Because you’re always asking for it, remember that I always leave a link below in the description box with the furniture that I mention in this video this way you can get inspired to incorporate something similar into your space.
Use your walls, use the vertical space. The space is three dimensional, we have more than the floor, so don’t forget that you have vertical space at your disposal to incorporate some pieces like bookshelves, wall mounted desk or storage.
Take advantage of your wall space: liven up vacant walls and give purpose to underutilized areas Remember that vertical storage gives the illusion of a more spacious room. In a small bedroom make your walls work every time.
Hidden Storage In order to organize a small bedroom setup, storage is key. Be creative. Use under-bed storage to stash out-of-season clothing custom shelving hidden in your walls to store things like shoes and books or a mirror with a hidden storage for your jewelry.
also use an ottoman with hidden storage at the foot of the bed and get extra seating. Multifunctional and Light Furniture In a small bedroom multifunctional and smart pieces are essential to maximize every inch.
Look for multiple uses in your furniture pieces for example use an ottoman as a sitting for your vanity table but with a hidden storage and it will work as the same piece when you’re needing a footrest.
Also there are a lot of multifunctional bed choices in the market, which, at the same time, will work as storage. if your bedroom is too small, you can use a sofa bed. This way, you have more versatility to play with your space depending on your needs.
Remember that in a small space everything needs to be functional. Another recommendation about incorporating furniture in your bedroom is to use transparent pieces made by acrylic or glass, maybe this transparent piece can be the chair that you will use for your work station desk or for your vanity table or nightstand or shelves, this way you will trick your eyes and brain into thinking that the space is bigger that what is really is because the transparent furniture takes zero visual weight.
I know that I always share this recommendation in all my videos about small spaces but it’s because it’s very very useful and easy to incorporate it in any room, remember that designing a small space is all about visual manipulation and with transparent objects you can trick your mind like the best.
High Curtains As I said before that the Furniture that extends up to the ceiling can visually open up the space and gives the illusion of a more spacious room well, We can achieve the same visual effect with high mounted curtains.
Accentuate tall windows with high curtains. Curtains make a room look more spacious when you mount the curtain rod close to the ceiling instead of at the window frame. the floor-length curtains draw the eye upward along the entire length of the curtains, creating an illusion of height.
So at the time of incorporating your curtains as a functional element you should use it as a visual effect to trick your mind and make your bedroom feel larger and airy. Lighting has the greatest impact on interior design.
In a bedroom I always recommend to have different layers of lighting setup what does that mean? Well that means that you will need to have an ambient or general lighting combined with task light source such as table lamps for your desk or wall lamps for reading at your bed But In a small space you need to be clever at the time of incorporating your lighting pieces.
For an ambient light use ceiling mounted lights or architectural lighting mimicking the led strips in your ceiling wall or furniture to define volumes and to provide the necessary ambient lighting. As I said, make your walls and your ceiling work For a task lighting source instead of using a table lamp in your nightstand, you can have a hanging lamp with a simple design or a wall lamp to take up zero space in your nightstand this way you will have more useful space for you and your furniture.
Wallpapers Patterns are a small space’s best friend because they add big personality without encroaching on precious square footage. Just because your bedroom is small doesn’t mean it has to be dull.
Add a bold wallpaper pattern to a focal wall, like your headboard wall. Wallpaper can also make a room feel smaller, so it’s crucial that patterns are executed in just the right way So, when selecting wallpaper, choose a large-scale pattern with organic and soft shapes over a small and busy one.
Remember that a light and calming color palette is the best choice for any bedroom Specially for a small one. Don’t forget to create a cohesive look by coordinating your bedding or pillows or some accessories with your new wallpaper.
