How to Make Your Bedroom Look Bigger

Does your bedroom feel cluttered? A cluttered bedroom is not only difficult to navigate but could actually be negatively affecting your sleep, which in turn could be impacting just about every aspect of your life. This is why it is helpful for those with small bedrooms to be aware of a few tips and tricks that they can use to make their space both look and feel much bigger.

Use Light Colors

One of the most effective steps to take is to use a light, neutral colour scheme in the bedroom. Whites and off whites can help to make the space look bigger and brighter and reflect more light, which should help to create a much lighter and airier feel in the room.

Use Vertical Space

If you keep lots of items stored in the bedroom, such as a book collection, then you may want to look into utilizing vertical space with bookshelves that stretch from floor to ceiling. In addition to helping you to keep the bedroom neat and organized, furniture which stretches from floor to ceiling can also create the illusion of height and make the bedroom feel much bigger. A wall-mounted shelf above the headboard can also be a good use of space – just make sure that nothing will fall off in the night! In addition, you can look here if you are in need of a new headboard that can create a powerful center point in the bedroom while also creating a soft backrest for sitting against and for pillows.

Remove Unnecessary Items

The bedroom should be a space primarily for sleeping, so you might find it helpful to remove non-essential items from this space – if you have a TV, you should certainly remove this as it takes up space but could also be negatively affecting your sleep.

Sliding Wardrobes

Sliding wardrobes from furniture specialists like Hammonds can also be perfect for a smaller bedroom as you do not need to worry about the doors opening out. This will make your clothes much easier to access and take up less space, plus having spacious wardrobes should help you to keep the space clutter free.

Under Bed Storage

Leading on from this, you also need to keep the bedroom as clutter-free as possible. Underneath the bed can be a smart storage space, but you should not simply sweep things under the bed and instead have storage boxes where you can keep items organized and kept out of the way under the bed.

Use Light Blinds

Heavy drapes can make even a large room feel small, so if you are limited for space then you should avoid these at all costs. Light blinds are much better for a small space, but if light coming through is an issue then you could look to blackout blinds which can make a big difference.

These are all effective ways to make a small bedroom look and feel much bigger, which could even positively impact your sleep and overall mood.
