Planning a Small Bedroom Can Be Fun (Honestly)
With the right design tips and techniques, you can turn your snug room into a dreamy retreat. From clever storage solutions to multitasking furniture,
these great ideas will breathe new life into your compact scheme.
Stick to a limited color palette.
If all white isn't for you, bring in your favorite colors, but in a thoughtful way. The brights are limited to reds and oranges - which work beautifully
with the brick wall and wooden furniture - and are teamed with plenty of white for an airy feel.
Let the light in.
Keep window treatments to a minimum in a small space to make the most of the natural light and keep the look unfussy. For privacy add plain roller blinds
or hang flat panels of lace or voile.
Maximize your storage space.
A floor-to-ceiling fitted unit makes the most of every inch in this bedroom. It cleverly incorporates room to display treasures, shelves for books, drawers
for more personal items, surfaces that act as bedside tables and reading lights. Talk about multitasking!
Don't be afraid to use windows.
There's no rule that says you can't push furniture up to a window. This bed is tucked neatly at the end of this small loft, rather than blocking the center
of the room. Vertical blinds have been made to measure for privacy and to block daylight, and the window offers great reading light in the mornings.
