Size does matter, as we all know, but there are ways to make a tiny bedroom feel big enough for your needs. Hide away your mess under the bed. Create a faux closet with a beautiful curtain. Set the bed against the wall to free up the center of the room. And make the most of the light and size available to you. Here are four easy ways guaranteed to make your tiny bedroom feel a lot roomier.
Tuck Away Your Mess
Even if your small bedroom comes without a closet, you can keep it tidy and spacious. At a storage store buy plastic lidded bins for storing your clutter under your bed. Tuck away your shoes, coats, school work, DVD's and books. You can buy a series of small containers and stack them in one big one to keep things organized.
Create a Fake Closet
Add extra closet space to your tiny bedroom by hanging a beautiful curtain from the ceiling about a foot and half away from the wall. Install $1 closet rod support brackets along the wall and hang your clothes on rods. When you close the curtain, replacing the wall with a fluid, beautiful fabric, no one will see your makeshift closet behind it.
Position the Bed Close to the Wall
Even a queen sized bed can fit in a small bedroom, if you set it flush against a side wall. Keep one nightstand on the open side of the bed, to lend comfort to both users of the room. If your bed is smaller, pull it away from the wall, but only enough to create an easy passage. This will leave the center of your small bedroom wide open.
Make Use of Reflections and Light
Decorate your tiny bedroom with mirrors, light and pale shades. Paint the walls white or in a sandy hue. Hang a large mirror opposite a window or lamp, to reflect the light and space in the room. Choose pale colored bedding and add brilliance with bright, colorful pillows.
Combine these four ideas for making a tiny bedroom feel roomier to bring harmony to your decor. Match your pillow colors to your curtain closet. Or use a tall, lidded wicker basket as both a nightstand and extra storage space. By multitasking your designs you'll find that your tiny bedroom has grown roomier.
