7 tricks to decorate a small room

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.

Choose between headboard or painting

If you have opted for a bed with a headboard, forget about putting pictures or paintings in the room; it’s too much information. Everything revolves around the idea of not feeling overwhelmed when you walk into the bedroom; after all, it is a place to relax… If you have a headboard and add a painting on the same wall, you will make it feel too heavy. If, on the other hand, you have a room with a “light” bed, a painting can become the best option, even acting as an improvised headboard


The bedside table that suits you best

Night tables should accompany the bed, never dominate it. A good option is a round nightstand or a small bench. And if it has the same texture as the legs of the bed, all the better. The nightstand is a secondary item, but make sure it’s neither too flimsy nor too small because in that case it can feel like an apology.



Two or three objects maximum

In a small room it is convenient to maintain order, so we recommend that you do not have more than two or three objects on the nightstand. It is preferable to have two or three large pieces than many small ones. A lamp, the book you are reading and a box for jewelry. The rest (photo frames, travel souvenirs…) are better to take them to a more spacious place.

Sophisticated yet understated bedding

Small rooms require less bedding. In a small space, a bed full of pillows will give a feeling of heaviness. Instead of creating a serene and harmonious place, you will be creating a suffocating environment. Consider something relaxing yet luxurious, in pastel shades and/or soft prints.
