Make the most of your small bedroom with our simple decorating tips
Sometimes a small canvas can give you the most inspiring ideas. So, if you have space constraints in your bedroom, take up the decoration as a challenge.
Start by deciding the colour combination – lighter colours give the impression of more space. Next, think of the size of the bed, whether you want a king or a queen sized one, this will determine how much space you have left in your room to add a bedside table, chest of drawers, etc.
Work with monotones, so that everything seems like a contiguous space. Or if you want to highlight a certain space, say like the bed, then opt for bed linen in a dramatically contrasting colour.
Work with streamlined furniture as it helps to give a decluttered look, is visually light and occupies lesser space.

Work a single colour in your small bedroom. Don’t be afraid to work several shades of it. This makes it appear like a single continuous space, with the different shades providing some visual relief. If you want to add pops of colour, introduce bright soft furnishings such as drapes, cushion covers and even headboard.
When it comes to small spaces, use mirrors for the illusion of a larger space. Place them such that it reflects the entire width of the room. Here, the cupboard doors have been covered in mirrors. This serves the two-fold purpose of masking the cupboards as well as making it look like a wider space.
