Rugs add pattern to your bedroom floor

If your bedroom flooring is looking a bit tired, and you’re looking for a simple solution to add a little bit of style to your bedroom floor then a rug is the answer.

Beyond just adding warmth to an interior, rugs are perfect for boosting a room’s style and flaunting your personality. You can go ahead to relate rugs to shoes worn with a great outfit. You wouldn’t go through the trouble of selecting the perfect outfit for a night out only to leave your home barefooted.

So just like shoes, rugs bring out the beauty of your bedroom design, they can be a game-changer on how your room looks and feels. They can also be used to hide annoying carpet stains and protect your solid floors from being scratched by a heavy bed frame.

If your current flooring is not making your bedroom come alive, then we recommend bringing it to live by adding a patterned rug to your small bedroom space.

Play with scale

Consider scale and proportion when decorating your small bedroom. Scale refers to how your furniture looks next to each other and how they fit in a room.

The furniture in your room can’t all be of the same size, they need to vary in order to create a balance and spark interest. And in the case of a small bedroom consider going for a mixture of slim, tall, low and compact bedroom furniture.

Variation in scale throughout a room is important. But, drastic differences can be unsuccessful. An oversize table lamp on a small table or a small piece of wall art above a large sofa creates unbalance.

You can also create an illusion of more space with scale, an example will be going for taller storage headboard. Doing so will make the room feel taller while giving it great focus.

A storage bed is better

Getting furniture for your small bedroom space can be tasking but the trick is to use furniture that serves more than one purpose wherever possible.

In a bedroom, one of the best multipurpose furniture to include in your small space is a storage bed. This is because besides giving you a comfortable and stylish bed to rest and enjoy a goodnight sleep, it also provides you with a storage solution for things like clothes, bedding, files or any other thing that could possibly clutter your small bedroom space.

Get a beachy look with an all-white bedroom

Your bedroom should be a reflection of your personality and your values. Most importantly, a bedroom should be a place where it is easy to relax.

And after a hectic day, an all-white bedroom is a soothing getaway; serene expanses of white walls, white furniture and linens invite you to clear your mind and relax without distractions.

Some people may prefer to splash colours on the walls while others will tend towards something a bit simpler. If you’re into something simpler then a relaxed beachy look is definitely one to go for and this works so well with an all-white scheme.

You can throw in some greenery a few cream or grey accents to soften the look.

A mini home office in your bedroom

The world is changing and everyone is adapting to the situation of the world. With the pandemic, most people are already learning to work comfortably from home.

But if you live in a small space and don’t have enough room to create a home office, then a corner in your bedroom can be the perfect place to put a productive workspace.

Curate almost a mini home office in the corner of your bedroom with a corner desk, a folding office chair and a table lamp. To store your file and avoid cluttering your bedroom space with papers and documents you can go for storage corner tables or wall-mounted storage.

If you are renting and basically only have a room to your name, this is a great way to zone your space to make it feel like you have separate areas for different activities.

Stylish and space saving bedroom storage

Storage is a must-have in a bedroom, but trying to squeeze in a place to keep all your clothes, bedding, shoes and more, can be tricky.

And for this reason, we say keep your storage as space saving as possible so your small bedroom space isn’t just overwhelmed by furniture. Pick bedroom storage furniture that are compact, stylish and practical.

On the other hand, bedroom storage doesn’t always have to be practical, you can use it to add some personality to your bedroom too. Try out storage that have both open and closed options so you can hide clutter behind doors and keep your prettiest things on display.

Swap out bulky nightstands for floating ones

If your alarm clock still sits on a nightstand with its legs firmly plotted on the ground then you’re not alone. Lots of us still use them, but times moving fast and perhaps now is the time for a change.

These nightstands can be bulky thereby compromising your space, you can swap them out for floating nightstands, with the same colour to match the wall behind.

What’s neat about floating nightstands is that they create a lot of space underneath, which can be used for storage, or kept open for a super tidy look.

For more functionality go for floating nightstands with storage so you can hide clutter away and still find a good spot to place your alarm clock.
