Small Bedrooms

While we all want a dreamy house on top of a mountain hill, one that is preferably facing a beautiful lake, reality is far away from that.


In the urban capital, most of us have to settle with a posh apartment with small bedrooms and even smaller verandahs. Additionally, there is no mountain top and you may not be able to get a lake view (unless you are one of the few lucky ones with your bedroom facing Dhanmondi Lake, Gulshan Lake, Uttara Lake and so on). However, life is not all too bad. To turn your snug bedroom into a dreamy retreat, use these sophisticated small bedroom ideas and decorating techniques.


Create A Focal Point

Every room needs a focal point, an eye-catching spot that establishes a hierarchy so you don't see just a jumble. Many times, the focal point is the head of the bed, which you can amplify with an arrangement of bold pillows. When organizing small spaces, your eye might also be attracted to the window. Rather than let these two strong elements compete for attention, place the bed in front of the window to meld cohesively. Or, dress one element - the bed or the window - neutrally, so that it recedes and the other can take center stage.


Keep Things Open

It might be tempting to buy the biggest bed possible to feather a luxurious nest. But doing this in a small space tends to cause a more cramped feel. Instead, choose a bed with small stature that won't choke the room. Or pick a bed with no footboard at all, such as a platform or storage bed. Doing so will keep the middle of your room open, making it feel larger.


Go For It

There are two ways to organize a small bedroom: you can make it dark and cozy with saturated colours such as bright reds or chocolate browns. Or, you can boost daylight with barely dressed windows and a light-bouncing colour on the wall, such as cloud white or sunshine yellow. Either way, don't take a weak approach. You can be bold in a small space without risking too much money or effort.


Sneak In Storage

When decorating small bedrooms, every square inch is potential storage. The boxes under the bed could be extremely helpful to store things up. When it comes to organizing a small bedroom, make the most of your closet with an organizer system. And look for wall space where you can hang a bookshelf.


Seize Opportunities In A Small Bedroom

Look for ways to make your small bedroom special. Decorate a bedroom with punchy fabrics and expressive patterns. Choose interesting lighting, such as a charming chandelier or sculptural table lamps. For a small bedroom idea that makes a statement, try an unusual headboard: pick one that is extra tall, brightly upholstered, or curvy. And use artwork to show off your personality. It doesn't have to be pricey - framed snapshots will do. Remember, this is the most personal space in your home, so decorate a bedroom with what makes you happy.
