With the dearth of affordable real estate, our homes have been shrinking exponentially. This has led to smaller interior spaces, which are definitely harder to decorate. Bedrooms, especially have grown smaller and smaller with each passing decade. Spaces like the living room and dining area have been merged under the tight-knit open floor planning system, but since the bedroom is a private zone, it has to be enclosed in order to be truly useful. So today, we’ll help you learn all the ways you can make your bedroom bigger and better with a few quality interior design hacks.
1. Platform beds
Platform beds came in fashion with the innovation in industrial style interior design. They are low-height and create a definite boundary between all the elements of the room. A platform bed can now be used in several different styles of interiors designs. Its low-height makes the surrounding space seem more open and airy. To some extent, this is a great way to create an illusion which the small bedrooms looks larger.
2. High gloss textures/laminates
Too many rustic textures and design elements can make a small bedroom space seem overwhelming and extremely cluttered. This is why contemporary materials such as high gloss laminates and smooth paint textures are preferred in these kinds of settings. They have the ability to pry away that constrained feeling from the room, and would definitely enforce a modern style aesthetic to the fullest.
3. Creative lighting
Bright lights can make a small space seem more spacious. This is especially evidenced through natural lighting. So having a large window portal in the bedroom that lets in an abundance of natural light is always preferable. Not only does it make the room seem larger naturally, but also makes the atmosphere breezy.
4. Looking mirror cladding
Looking mirror cladding on a feature wall can create the illusion of double the space. A single mirror leaf is almost 8’x12’ in size. You can clad these on an accent wall or even wardrobe door leafs to make your small bedroom space seem infinitely larger than it actually is.
5. Bare floors
Area rugs, carpets and even shag rugs are full of texture, so they always add a little more weight to the visuals of a room. This is why you should always keep the floor space bare while designing small bedrooms. It will create an airy circulation space that will create a more spacious aesthetic for your bedroom.
