If you have a small room and you don’t know what to do to make it look larger and more stylish, here are 7 little-known but infallible tricks to create the illusion of a much larger bedroom.
It is not just about changing the paint on the walls to a white color. In fact, that is not an essential factor for a room to appear larger. The trick is to choose and combine the proportions of the furniture well and to select the shapes that are most suitable for the space that the room occupies. You can have an amazing bedroom, even if it’s small. It doesn’t have to be boring and it doesn’t have to be white.
Choose a low bed and mattress
It may seem that, when we talk about small bedrooms, the best option is a small bed. But, the really important thing is that it is a low bed. When it comes to small bedrooms, the key is to think about the height of the bed and the height of the mattress. And don’t be afraid to add a headboard: your room won’t look smaller because you add a headboard to the bed.
The alternative to the tatami
The tatami-style beds may not convince you. If you prefer a more conventional bed and have a small bedroom, choose one with small, thin legs. In this way, you will allow air to circulate under the bed, and you will make the room cooler. It is a small detail, but you already know that, when it comes to rooms with a few meters, every detail counts.
Choose a single focal point
Every room needs a focal point. That design element that captures your eye the moment you walk into the room. It can be a lamp like the one in the photograph or a colored element. All rooms (living room, dining room…) need a focal point, but in the case of the bedroom it is even more relevant as it is a narrower space.
