Small bedroom ideas to steal

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.
