Hello, friends! It’s been a long time we haven’t talked about small bedroom decorating ideas in particular, but this is an important question for many readers.
Today, I want to continue this topic and share still few effective techniques on small bedroom decorating.
First, I want to briefly remind you those recommendations from the previous article, and examples can be found here.
1. Uncluttering and good storage organization of your belongings
2. Built-in cabinets and shelving, suspended shelves above the bed
3. Cabinets from floor to ceiling with mirrored doors
4. Walls and ceiling of the same color
5. Low bed
6. Hanging lamps instead of table lamps and floor lamps
Dark walls in a small bedroom
Dark wall color is actually a very effective but underrated technique. Usually people are afraid to use saturated colors in general, and they are considered to be completely unacceptable only for small bedrooms. And that’s a good reason! Dark room disguises corners, and the boundaries of the room seem to dissolve, and you create a wonderfully cozy and intimate atmosphere, what more do you need in the bedroom?
You can definitely use dark grey, rich blue and brown tones for the bedroom walls.
If you are hesitant to paint in a dark color all the walls, you can always choose one wall to become a contrast. Dark side wall is a great way to lengthen the long narrow room. Contrasting wall will bring interior dynamics and depth into the bedroom.
Bright and colorful Wallpaper prints may also serve as contrasts. Use them behind the bed to spice up the interior.
Wall murals for small bedrooms
Stylish and unusual wall murals is an excellent solution that we have discussed many times. Choose a picture of a peaceful forest, mountains or a rushing metropolis for your small bedroom idea, and the room visually becomes more spacious.
Large paintings and posters in a small bedroom
Same as with the previous techniques, using large paintings in a small bedroom is meant to distract attention from the area of the premises. Put a large, preferably very large painting or poster on the wall above the bed and it will become the main focus in the room.
We used this trick when working on our latest project – a two-level apartment in Moscow, where the bedroom area was only 10 meters.
The element of surprise is a great way to divert attention and to deceive the sight.
Mirrors in a small bedroom
Small bedroom decorating ideas necessarily imply usage of mirrors. Whether it’s Cabinet doors, a large mirror, an arrangement of mirrors on the wall, or that kind of wall decoration with mirrored panels behind the bed.
Multi-level lighting as a small bedroom decorating
Lighting, both natural and artificial, is very important for small rooms. In a small bedroom be sure to plan a variety of light sources: main fill lighting, decorative light from bedside lamps and floor lamps, working lighting from table lamps. Put some lighting in niches and shelves to create intricate game of reflections, and the interior of the small bedroom will not seem so flat and lifeless.
Bed position in a narrow small bedroom
Very often we get questions from readers and customers, how to place a bed in a long narrow bedroom. For some reason, it is believed that a bed should stand against the wall, and no one considers bed location near a window. Actually this is a good way to save a lot of space and getting up in the morning on the bed, bathed in sunshine.
A four-poster or canopy bed in a small bedroom decorating
Another common myth is that a canopy bed is only good for spacious bedrooms. Even if you have a very small bedroom, you can put a bed with the supports under the canopy. It does not matter if it visually takes up half a bedroom. Does it matter how other items will look in the bedroom, when there is such a luxurious bed in the middle of the room?
I wish you always sleep and Wake up in a good mood! Small bedroom decorating is an individual matter and is not bound by rules. The main thing is to create a comfortable environment, how? – you decide!
