Inspiring Small Bedroom Ideas

1
If you are searching for inspiring design ideas on how to create the perfect small bedroom design layout, we have collected some incredible ideas to share with you. We have published several other inspiring bedroom design ideas, such as minimalist bedroom design ideas and barn style bedroom design ideas as well as a roundup of our most popular bedrooms from 2012, now it is time to give you some functional design solutions for small apartments and homes or even a guest bedroom or attic space that has minimal space but needs some large ideas! Today, we have collected for you 60 images of bedroom interiors that offer brilliant floor plans with clever storage solutions.
If your space currently lacks natural light, smart storage and even the right color palette, it will feel cramped and uncomfortable. With the right techniques, even in the smallest of bedrooms can be more functional and even appear larger. We have some great tips to turn a bedroom, attic, storage space or office area into a cozy bedroom for guests, family or for a personal refuge. Remember that darker colors recede and will make a small space feel enclosed and less spacious. Try using lighter hues and consider painting the ceiling the same shade as the wall to erase shadow lines that visually define a space. If you paint your ceiling white against a dark wall, the space will feel smaller and your eye can gain a sense immediately of the size of the room.  If the walls and ceilings have the same tone, you will trick your eye into not being able to see where the room’s parameters start and end, therefore making the room appear more spacious.

Install wall sconces. Don’t take up precious bedside table space with bulky lamps and oversize shades; install wall sconces or even pendant lighting instead. Installing wall sconces on the wall can create a unique look and create a focal point while providing task lighting on each side of the bed. Just remember to measure carefully and hang them low enough so you don’t have to get out of bed to turn them off.
3
Daybed.This daybed is a clever space saver solution and makes the room look more like a sitting area instead of a bedroom but doesn’t take away from its cozy vibe. Daybeds often have storage built in underneath too — another bonus for a small room.

Let in natural light. While you should avoid blocking natural light in a small room, sometimes the only place that makes sense for a bed is right in front of the window. If that’s the case, try a see-through headboard to make the most of your sunlight.
5
Add built-in shelving. Shallow built-in shelving can help you gain storage and maintain floor space. Stick to shelving that’s no more than 12 inches deep. The units here act as bedside tables, eliminating the need for extra furniture. Recessing the bed in the middle of the shelving prevents it from encroaching on much-needed floor space.

A small room benefits from the same elements as a larger one. The round mirror above the mansard headboard is a fun contrast, while all the textures (headboard, bedding, flooring, curtains) give the room depth and sophistication.
7
Art and wallpaper. Don’t be afraid to hang art or add some wallpaper; just be thoughtful about the type and size.
8
Built-ins. If you go with built-ins in your small bedroom, try taking them all the way to the ceiling to make the ceiling look higher. And paint the back wall a contrasting color to create layering and depth.

Built in storage. Adding built-in storage saves space and is highly functional and aesthetically pleasing, making your space feel more clean and organized. Besides the usual bedside items, you can stash spare linens (two drawer), photo albums, books or even socks and other small items.
10
Corner window. In a small bedroom, no matter what the style is, from traditional to contemporary, a corner window is an effective way to make a smaller room seem much larger than it actually is.
11
Go for mirrored closet doors. Using a mirror to double your room’s visual square footage is a trick that’s been used for centuries. In small bedrooms this often means replacing your closet doors with mirrored ones. The effect tends to work best when you can take the mirrors from floor to ceiling and wall to wall.

Of course, when specifically decorating a kid or a teenager’s room, the use of bunk beds and sleeper couches comes in handy. Look into a reputable retailer such as The Bed King for a wide range of beds, mattresses, single beds and bedding.
