In fact, your small bedroom may be a blessing for a better night’s sleep. The American Sleep Association recommends keeping stimulating activities out of the bedroom. They warn that distractions like TV, internet, and work can disrupt your sleep patterns. So, the less there is to do in your bedroom, the more sleep you set yourself up for. How’s that for smart design? Here are ten small bedroom ideas and tips to help you create a bedroom space that may be small in square footage, but is big in style.
The effect will create a sleep area that feels cozier. If it feels too much like a college dorm? Add a two headboard corner system to create a finished, designer look to a bedroom. A few inches of extra space can be vital in a small bedroom. Part ways with your footboard-style bed frame and replace it with a simple modern headboard to finish the look of your bed. Or, opt for a hollywood-style frame that supports the bottom of the bed and extends no further than the perimeter of the mattress. You can decorate the space above the bed with art, or add a headboard later. Add space to your bedroom by paring it down to your favorite essentials. The focus of this space is undeniably the bed, so keep furniture pieces and accessories down to a minimum. Even better, use sleek, contemporary built-ins for additional storage. Built-ins maximize storage while looking like they’re not even there. A good built-in around your bed creates a cozy sleeping nook while adding plenty of storage.
If saving up precious square footage in your small bedroom is a priority, then it is hard to find a nightstand that is far more efficient than one that is wall-mounted. Floating nightstands with a box-like design are a hot trend this season and you can easily add one to the bedroom without undertaking a major redecorating project. The best part about it is that even the forgotten corner next to the bed on the far side can also now feature a cool nightstand that also adds to the overall aesthetic.
