sweet dreams for small spaces…
big impact in little bedrooms

Even larger homes can sometimes have small bedrooms, and with the trend to building smaller, bedrooms have shrunk even more. Just getting a bed into some of the more diminutive spaces can seem like a challenge, but small bedrooms can be charming and very restful. All it takes is a few tricks.

  • Make use of built-ins (or fake it)
    Built-in cabinets, bookcases and nightstands can help free up space by keeping small rooms clean and uncluttered.
  • Dispense with the nightstands
    Try wall-mounted shelves as a space-saving nightstand alternative.
  • Keep the lines simple
    Stick to clean, uncluttered lines of furniture that take up less visual space.
  • Don’t forget the drama
    Small doesn’t mean forgotten. Add mirrors or bold accents to make a small room really pop.
  • Add seating
    What? Seating in a small room? Yep! Try a simple bench at the foot of the bed, or a small cozy chair in the corner.
  • Let in the light
    Get as much natural light into the space as possible, use mirrors to reflect and maximize the light. It creates a more open feeling.
  • Sneak storage wherever you can
    That may mean under the bed, or “hidden in plain sight” thanks to colorful boxes (great to store sheets and blankets).
  • Make your bed a star
    In a small space, you can keep the bed as clean-lined and simple as possible for a modern look, or go ahead and pile on the pillows and make it into a luxurious nest.
