Small bedroom decorating ideas are so easy to come by. What’s more is that they don’t have to be expensive or take over your entire bedroom space. Let me show you how you can bring a few of your favorite small bedroom decorating ideas into your room without spending a lot of money. Here are some great ideas for your storage and nightstand needs.
A great bedroom decorating idea for storage is using a fluffy, cozy area rug to place on the floor under your furniture. Rugs are a great way to soften hard surfaces without adding bulk or losing comfort. Area rugs come in all shapes sizes and materials so finding one to match your bedroom decorating theme should be no problem at all. Area rugs are great because they give a soft feel while covering up surfaces without overpowering them.
Another small bedroom design idea for storage is using curtains and window treatments to make up the empty spaces in your walls. Curtains in darker colors will keep the light out of your eyes while bright curtains will let some sunlight in. Window treatments like blinds and sheers can also help to define the boundaries between rooms. These types of window treatments also help to define each room from the others, giving off a sense of style and privacy.
If you don’t want to pay a lot of money for new furniture, then you can always use what you already have in your home to give your small bedroom a makeover. For example, a large coffee table or end table can easily be turned into an end table or night stand with some coordinating artwork. You can then add some coordinating throw pillows on either side of the coffee table. This will give your bedroom a cozier feel while still keeping with the theme of having just a bedroom. It’s not too much to have a nice comfy chair in the middle of your bedroom facing the window. Add soft pillows on top of your favorite throw pillow, and voila – you have turned a simple bedroom into a bedroom that will make you want to spend every waking moment there.
Natural lighting is another way to help create the perfect atmosphere for your bedroom. Having natural light shine on the walls of your room will help create a cozy feeling that will stay with you all day long. Having a skylight or stained glass on the ceiling can also help create the feeling of a larger space. And, if you have a fireplace, cozy little wood burning stoves can create a cozy atmosphere as well.
Instead of shoving all of your furniture into your small space, you should try to utilize the limited amount of space you have by utilizing bold colors and bold decorating ideas. One of the best ways to create more of a bold look is to use furniture that has a unique shape. A rocking chair or bookshelf that has a unique shape can add some interesting storage options.
Extra storage is also an interesting topic. You can utilize the extra surface space you have by using shelves, hooks, and drawer organizers. By adding shelves to your bedroom you can store everything from linens to books to clothing. If you’re going to go this route, be sure that your wall surface has adequate support so that your shelves don’t buckle or fall.
Adding built-in storage to your bedroom is a great idea. You can find built-in storage anywhere. They are usually small and unobtrusive. Many have shelves that are built right into the wall and have open shelves that are the perfect height for books and other reading/knitting/crafting items. So, instead of looking for extra storage units to put in your bedroom, why not consider putting in built-ins?
