Whether you live in a studio, a BTO, an HDB or even a landed property, the one common factor between all these types of homes is the need to make the most of your space. Sometimes, your space is simply too small. Other times, you have a large family that needs clever accommodation in the existing space. These constraints usually apply the most to bedrooms, which is why today we’ve compiled a guide on how you can design a fully compact modern bedroom interior.
1. Compartmentalize your space
If you’re done successfully compartmentalizing your space, the job is already half done. It’s not really that hard. All you need to do is make a list of all the things that you need in your bedroom – e.g. a bed, a desk, your wardrobe, some extra storage, etc. – and then plan out where you want them to be. Then you can decide a way on how to compact them if the space is too small.
2. Pro tip for maximizing height
Maximizing the height of the bedroom can definitely create the illusion of extra space, which can in turn give you lots of leeway to experiment with different storage systems and other compact furniture. You can use low-height platform beds to make the ceiling look high. You can even dress your room with full-length window treatments to make it seem taller.
3. Bunkers and desks
If you’ve got a growing family with kids and not enough space, then this idea is definitely going to attract you. This image shows a ‘parallel’ layout where the extreme sides of the room have been utilized to create a compact set-up. The bunk beds on one end are great way to accommodate sleeping while the horizontal study desk can be easily used by more than one occupant.
4. Under the platform bed
Platform beds are the perfect design element to subtly enhance your storage space. The are under the platform can be customized to cater hidden drawers and storage areas. The style of these compartments totally depends on your needs and aesthetics. You can even use the stairs to create hidden drawers.
5. Using continuity
Continuity is a great way to design beautiful compact areas. Take the example of this bedroom. The step-up platform bed is seamlessly integrated into the study desk, which makes for a highly smart and efficient design.
