A small bedroom doesn’t have to limit your decorating abilities. There are so many ways you can turn that small bedroom into a stylish retreat. Whether you create an accent wall or choose the right furniture, the room can be just as beautiful as a large master suite. The following are just a few tips on how to make a small bedroom stylish.
Create an Accent Wall
A great way to add interest to a small bedroom is to create an accent wall. This is easily done by placing the bed’s headboard on that wall, but to jazz up the wall, you’ll want to paint it another color or add high-quality wallpaper that makes it stand out. Because you’re decorating such a small room, you can afford to spend more money on high-quality, unique touches.
Add Trendy Colors and Finishes
Colors and finishes make the room. In a small bedroom, chances are you will only need one gallon of paint. To make the process easier, choose a paint that has the primer and paint all in one. This ensures you’ll only need one coat. Decorators recommend neutral colors in small bedrooms, but don’t be afraid of dark colors. The myth is that it makes the room appear smaller, but a color cannot change the size of a room. In fact, dark colors can be very cozy. Adding a bright white trim can also make the room more stylish. When it comes to metallic finishes brushed bronze or brushed stainless are very hot right now.
Buy Furniture That Fits the Room
If you can afford to purchase new furniture, purchase pieces that fit the room. Furniture that actually fits the size of the room will instantly make the room feel larger because you’ll have more space. While you may want a king-sized bed, a queen will probably be a better fit. Of course, you can always keep the king if you’re willing to omit extra dressers and storage pieces.
Make the Room Inviting
A small bedroom doesn’t have to be a turn off, by adding an accent wall, you’re already on the way to making the room more inviting. By adding a few of your favorite accessories, fluffy bedding, and different types of lighting, you can make the room truly inviting.
Cut the Clutter
Last, but not least, as you put the room back together, take the time to cut the clutter. Place items in three piles donate, throw away, and keep. Remember, the fewer things go back in the room, the more inviting and stylish the room will be.
Don’t overlook decorating your bedroom because it’s small. Take the time to add the perfect touches so that the room is stylish and inviting.
