Ideas For Taking Advantage Of Small Rooms

Ideas For Taking Advantage Of Small Rooms

Do not think that a bed is enough, rest is something much more serious than lying on a mattress until the next day. If your bedroom is mini with these basics you will take advantage of it.

1. BET ON THE SCONCES

Just because you don’t have nightstands doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a pleasant read. The solution? Place a couple of sconces on the headboard or wall. Not only will you be taking advantage of the space, you will also take care of your eyes!

2. TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE VERTICAL SPACE ON THE WALLS

Whether it’s with a built-in bookcase or a few shelves, if you have a small bedroom you’d better take advantage of the vertical space on the walls. To make it even more functional, you can distribute several boxes or small baskets along the shelves, and store in them everything you do not want to keep in sight, leaving the rest of the space to display beautiful things such as vases, plants, paintings or even books.

3. CONSTRUCTION HEADBOARD? OF COURSE!

When it comes to taking advantage of the square footage of a mini bedroom, the headboards of work take the jackpot. You do not believe it? Well take a look at the image: not only have a couple of niches been won as bedside tables, there is also a wooden shelf in the upper area as a support to add decorative elements. All this together with the direct lighting of the two sconces!

4. MAY THE WHITE BE WITH YOU

As a general rule, light shades always help to make spaces appear wider and brighter, which is essential when it comes to small rooms. So if you are thinking about painting the bedroom, you know … go for white!

5. USE HANGING LAMPS

HANGING LAMPS

Earlier, we showed you how useful sconces are in mini bedrooms without bedside tables, but the pendant lamps on both sides of the bed will also get you out of trouble (with the addition that they will add extra style and elegance to the room).

6. DON’T FORGET TO ADD A MIRROR

Based on the fact that mirrors duplicate visual space, what are you waiting for to add one in your room? They come in many shapes and sizes: standing, wall-mounted, dressing table … And you can place it on the headboard, leaning against a corner of the room, on top of the chest of drawers … Do you find few options?

7. WHENEVER YOU CAN, OPT FOR SLIDING DOORS

If you want to squeeze all the useful space out of that small room, prioritize sliding doors over traditional doors. The key? Choose a timeless model in a neutral color like white. In this way, you will never tire of them, and they will not collide at any time with the style of the decoration. All are advantages!

8. CREATE VOLUME WITH WALLPAPER

Another great option for decorating bedrooms with tight spaces is to use wallpaper wisely. We refer to using it to exclusively cover one of the walls (for example, the headboard), painting the rest in a tone that matches the motifs on the paper. The ones that succeed the most in mini stays? Plain, floral or geometric patterns, preferably in light tones.

9. USE FRESH TEXTILES LIKE LINEN OR COTTON

The choice of bedding and textiles that accompany the decoration of a small bedroom is of utmost importance. Our advice? Opt for fresh fabrics such as linen or cotton, especially on these dates close to summer. You can always opt for neutral tones for the duvet cover and sheets, and give it a touch of color with the cushions or with a plaid at the foot of the bed.

10. A TABLE AS NARROW AS POSSIBLE

NARROW table

We have already explained to you in other reports how on your surface you only have to deposit what is strictly necessary, so a 20-centimeter width will suffice. The upholstered headboard with studs is from Or moss, the bedside table and lamp from Better & Best, and the wallpaper from Coordinate.

11. OR, BETTER, NO LITTLE TABLES

When the rooms are very narrow, it is preferable to gain those centimeters to place a slightly wider mattress. The lamps can go as an appliqué on the headboard (these are from Pinto Luz).

12. A BENCH AT THE FOOT OF THE BED

It will serve to dress and undress, but also to place the breakfast tray or the extra blanket in case it cools. The bed and headboard are from Carrillo, the wooden table from El Globe, the wooden bench from Natalia, the blanket from Zara Home, the curtains from Ikea, the fringe lamps from Value, the carpet from tail and the blinds, in danced.

13. A BUILT-IN WARDROBE

It fits almost anywhere and is the most appropriate way to avoid missing dead holes or nooks and crannies. The Dane model headboard is by Luca and the mirror and lamp in Acevedo Errol.

14. A BRIDGE-BOOKSTORE

BRIDGE-BOOKSTORE

It will be the solution to the excess of books by inveterate readers, those who find in bed the ideal moment to allow themselves to be trapped by literature. The interior designer Aurora Monastery designed this for the main bedroom of her house. The Peking bench and bedside tables in La Nave Home, the lamps are from Ikea.

15. A (BLESSED!) COUCH

It would have to be among the best inventions of the 20th century (this is from Kabul). Thanks to it, seasonal wardrobe changes are much easier. Of course, inside, everything must be perfectly ordered in boxes. The bench is from Ikea.

16. WHITE CURTAINS, YES OR YES

You will have time to innovate with textiles or with the color of the walls. In this bedroom with a built-in bed and bedside tables, the lamp is from Cottage Little House.

That the bedrooms are for sleeping is clear, but do not settle – for lack of meters – to create a space in which to close your eyes until the morning of the next day and to not return until the night falls again. You have to live them, enjoy them and make the most of them, because in them we like to have breakfast on cold winter days; arranging ourselves for an important date or abstracting from the world in which it is, without a doubt, a space designed for privacy, but also for the company.

So write down these tips with which to make yours look bigger or, at least, not lacking for anything: work cabinets in the recesses (even work commodes), very narrow tables whose surface will be enough to support the indispensable and white curtains with which to create a more spacious effect. That yes, that a bed could be enough (in Sparta the floor was), but it would not be a bedroom. And less a bedroom in El Mumble.
