Peaceful Sleep in Small Spaces

November 30, 2015


Top Tips for Decorating Small Bedrooms

If the kitchen is the heart of a home, then the bedroom is surely the brain. It is where we go to recharge, to find peace and to reenergise after a long day. A bedroom should be a haven of tranquillity, a place where the day’s stresses and troubles just dissipate and disappear.

But, for some of us our bedrooms are not these spaces, as much as we want them to be. They are small, cramped and over cluttered. Fear not, because we have some top tips to make the most out of a small space so that you can create a sanctuary to retreat to at the end of each day.

Lighten up. Dark colours tend to make spaces seem smaller, so opt for light colours when choosing paint and furnishings. Don’t go for too many colours – stick to two tones so as not to make the space too busy. Mirrors also help create a sense of space. It is important that your bedroom has personality and is a reflection of who you are, so use one or two statement pieces to create your own style. A piece of art, a well placed throw on your bed or bold patterned scatter cushions go a long way to adding your own individual style.

Clever storage is also a necessity when considering small bedroom spaces. Instead of bedside tables consider floating shelves. This way you don’t lose space on the floor, and the lack of bulky furniture adds to the illusion of space. If you have a window in your bedroom, consider using the window sill as place to store books or decorative items, this not saves space but once again adds personality to the room. It is also a good idea to wall mount bedside lights – this is a real space saver and looks great.

Perhaps the best way to maximise space in a small bedroom is to consider a wall bed. Available in any size – single, double, queen and king – wall beds are modular systems so you can add a desk or wardrobe so that when the bed is folded up you can get the most out of any small bedroom space, or try bunk beds in children's rooms. Your sleeping area can be transformed into a study and dressing room, and then back into a retreat of peaceful slumber. Wall beds are available at Bed King, so contact us for more information.
