Small Bedroom Ideas

Don’t Fret a Small Space for Your Bedroom…Make It Work!

I watch home buying and remodeling shows on TV, and so many people balk at small bedrooms, but you really don’t have to worry about a small space, if you design it properly. After all, most of us only sleep in our bedrooms, anyway, so why do you need a huge room?

Don’t use bulky or oversized furniture in your bedroom. This will make the room look and feel smaller. Use the smallest bed possible, as long as it’s comfortable for the person or people sleeping in the room. If you decide to add other furniture pieces, consider tall and narrow pieces, and anything else that takes up minimal space. Wall shelves will hold books, clothing, toys, or other items, and help keep your room clutter free and organized.

A fold-down wall bed stores up against your wall when not in use, and gives you more room for other tasks, so that might be a good option for your bedroom.

Bookcases and cubbies offer storage along with dressers and chests, and can often be stacked to optimize your space.

Keep your decor simple and unobtrusive in your small bedroom, too, and you’ll have a lovely space that you will enjoy.

Make Your Small Space Work Well for You!

There is only one time in my life where I had a large bedroom, so I have learned first hand how to make a small space work well.

I have slept in twin, 3/4, and full sized beds, and of course my favorite is a full size. If your space is too small to accommodate a full sized bed, consider a futon that will fold out into a full bed.

If you’re dealing with a small space for two children, then consider bunk beds, trundle beds, or a futon on bottom with a twin bed on top (or something along those lines).

Other small furniture might include a dresser and/or chest, a side table, etc. Some spaces might even accommodate a small desk. One bedroom I had was a 10′ X 10,’ and I had a full bed, small desk, 5-drawer dresser with mirror, filing cabinet, and smaller 4-drawer chest. This didn’t leave much room for anything else, but I was able to sit comfortably at my desk with my office chair, and I had a walkway down the center and to the small closet. My bed even had a headboard, which was a bit large for the space, but it offered more storage, which I desperately needed.

Get creative and you can do wonders with any small space in your home!

Furniture Ideas for a Small Bedroom Space

Remember to keep things streamlined and simple in your small bedroom. Leave room to walk around freely, or for kids to play, if possible. Furniture should be small yet offer storage for clothing and other items whenever possible. You might consider a bed with bottom storage drawers, too!

If you have small bedrooms, then you know the importance of utilizing your space wisely. Furniture that serves a dual purpose is the way to go in your small bedroom. The ottoman featured here allows you to store at least 8 pairs of shoes while offering you a seat to relax or get dressed. Use it at the foot of your bed, against a wall, or in your closet.

Optimize your small space with storage bins and other furniture that can hold clothing, toys, books, etc. Over door storage keeps shoes, jewelry, scarves, and other items neat and in one place, and can be used on the back of entry doors or closet doors.

Under bed storage keeps things organized and out of the way, and you can get bags, boxes, or other bins to store clothes, blankets, purses, and more in when not in use.

Storage Ideas for Small Bedroom Spaces

Rolling carts, under bed storage, over door storage, and more, are all great ways to optimize your small space. If you’re anything like me, you have lots of items that you prefer to store in your bedroom such as neck scarves, jewelry, handbags, and other treasures. I like a neat home, and I enjoy having a place to keep my items neatly out of sight. I have a 3-drawer rolling bin by my desk that holds office items I use regularly. It fits nicely in a small space next to my desk, and I keep my phone and calculator on top of it. That is just one idea of creating more storage in your small bedroom.

When decorating a small space, keep things simple and uncluttered. Wall mirrors will make spaces appear larger, and you can find some very pretty ones that look good over a dresser or over your bed.

A table lamp shouldn’t be too large, and figurines should be minimal. Wall decor is a great way to add interest and design to your bedroom, and decorative pillows will also spruce things up nicely.

A pretty bedding set adds a lot to your rooms decor, too, and you can add matching accessories to create a themed look or cohesive color scheme.

A large wall clock will create a lovely focal point over your bed or on any empty wall, too.

Bedroom Decor Ideas for a Small Bedroom

Create an elegant or eclectic space depending on your choice of decorative accents. Consider a painted feature wall or wall mural for grandeur, too. Add your favorite pieces to a dresser or nightstand, and consider wall sconces rather than table lamps to save your tabletop areas for other items, if needed.
