Small Bedroom Ideas

A small bedroom doesn't have to be a cramped space. These small bedroom design ideas will make you feel like your room is a castle!

Small Bedroom Ideas that Save Space

If your bedroom is accommodating just one person, consider a loft bed. Raising your bed off the floor will give you lots of space underneath for a desk or dresser. If you have two children sharing a small bedroom, a bunk bed is a great way to take advantage of that ceiling space. You'll save in square footage by stacking the beds on top of each other rather than side by side.

Get creative with your headboard

Instead of a conventional headboard, try something that takes up a bit less space. We love these ideas:

  • Hang an area rug or gorgeous fabric behind your bed.
  • Place a room divider behind the bed—preferably one that includes storage space, too!
  • Artwork, wallpaper, mirrors, or a picture gallery can create a focal point behind the bed.
  • Paint a headboard on your wall.
  • Upholstered headboards are slim and elegant.

Decorating tricks

There are a number of easy decorating ideas for small bedrooms. Each will make your room seem a bit more spacious. 

  • Hang your window treatments close to the ceiling. It will make your bedroom seem taller.
  • Mirrors reflect the available light so the room appears spacious. 
  • Paint or wallpaper your ceiling. This will draw the eye upward.
  • Dark colors are cozy, but they also absorb light. Stick with lighter colors for an airier feel.

Dual-purpose items

Look for furniture that can pull double duty as a storage solution. Benches that open to store your books, clothes, or linens also provide you with a place to sit. Opt for a nightstand with drawers rather than an open nightstand. Choose a bed with built-in drawers or one that can accommodate storage underneath to free up more space. 

A small bedroom isn't a bad thing; it forces you to cut down on clutter and ensure that everything in your room has a purpose. For more ideas on how to decorate and furnish a small bedroom, talk to the experts at the Bassett Furniture!
