5 Design Tips to Make Small Bedroom Feel Cosy and Spacious

If there was only one place that we could choose to make cosy in our homes, it would just have to be our bedroom.

A bedroom doesn’t need to have soaring ceilings or huge square footage to feel luxurious. In fact, small bedrooms often have a cozier, more intimate vibe, which can help make the space relaxing and personal.

Getting the most out of a small bedroom can be challenging, but there are a few tips and tricks that you can employ to make the most of what you have. 

Paint Your Walls Light Colors

Light colours reflect more light than dark colours, making a room seem brighter and more spacious. Dark paint absorbs light, which may make a room feel smaller and more constricting.

Make mirrors your friend 

Mirrors can be a fantastic way to get the most out of every inch that you have. Not only do they look great, they also give you the opportunity to create an optical illusion that will make your room seem far larger than it actually is.

Play with lines

Elements of lines in your bedroom design can dramatically change the overall look and feel of the interior space.  Using a roman blind not only adds privacy and reduces sunlight from entering the room, the horizontal fabric segments can also make your bedroom appear wider. If you want your room to look taller and more spacious, you can use wallpaper with vertical lines or fluted feature walls. Adding these vertical elements help to add the feeling of height in a room.

Be sure to scale

Make sure that all furniture is scaled correctly. The relative size of a piece of furniture should generally be proportionate with the rest of furniture in your room. For example, a 2-seater sofa bed can fit into a small bedroom as long as its overall size does not overpower the other big furniture item in the room and should not take up more than 60% of the overall bedroom space. 

Be creative with storage

Leave some areas purposefully blank to give the illusion that there is more space. Clean lines without excessive clutter makes the area feel much more spacious. A clutter-free room is key to the perception of space and will make a small bedroom seem bigger. 

Experiment with creative space saving furniture for your bedroom to maximise bedroom space. From the hidden wall bed concept to loft style beds, there are many ready made or customised furniture options available in the market.


Remember, small layout, outsized opportunities

Having a small bedroom doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style. There are plenty of room design ideas that maximize efficiency while elevating your room.

The key is to find options that works best for your personal taste and space.

Instead of stretching to fill a massive space, tiny rooms let you focus on a few perfect pieces and special touches.
