Planning a small seating area can be pretty exciting. By applying simple design techniques, it can turn into the room of your dreams. Multifunctional furniture and spacious storage spaces are the right solutions for compact living spaces.
We tell you how to design a bedroom to be ergonomic and comfortable, and stylish.
1. Stick to a limited color palette
Bright accents in the design of a small bedroom
If an all-white interior isn’t for you, use your favorite colors, but don’t overdo it. Only red and orange hues have been introduced to this bedroom, which blends beautifully with the brick wall and wooden furniture. Such bright accents united the room into a single airy composition.
2. Let the sun into the house
Curtains on rollers in the bedroom
Make the most of your windows by avoiding heavy curtains. Only natural light will make your environment light and unassuming. Well, since no one has canceled privacy, hang simple curtains on rollers made of lace or veil.
3. Increase your storage space
Full wall shelving in the bedroom
Buy multifunctional furniture. For example, I was shelving on the entire wall. It will be a shelf for books and drawers for various things and trinkets, as well as a night table.
4. Don’t be afraid to use windows
Large window in loft bedroom
There is no single rule that says that you can not move furniture to the window. In this case, they did the same with the bed, thereby leaving more free space for movement. Vertical blinds, hide the room from prying eyes, and every morning, this window wakes up the owners with gentle sun rays.
5. Bring more mirrors in the interior
Mirror wall in the bedroom
Creating the illusion of more space with reflection is a classic trick that always works—ideal for small bedrooms where mirrored walls are conscious of the effect of a large room.
In addition, this clever trick gives the atmosphere a unique style, and the antique mirror looks very elegant.
6. Buy innovative furniture
Bedroom in the attic
The money and time spent ordering furniture suitable only for your non-standard interior is worth it. As you can see, this bed fits perfectly into the attic floor, leaving most of the room free.
Convenient placement of drawers, a hanging night table, and a transparent chair visually unloads the space, increasing the free area of the bedroom.
7. Accentuate the walls

In this narrow room, attention is focused on the far wall with unusual wallpaper. They connect the pale blue furnishings and furniture into a whole interior composition.
8. Decorate your headboard
Shelving at the head of the bed
This is a relatively simple and ingenious way to organize a small sleeping area. Made to order, such furniture can be a bookshelf, a bedside table, and a decorative element. But that’s not all, its design is not so simple – on the other hand, a spacious wardrobe continues.
9. Make bold decisions
Study in a small bedroom
This bedroom in the attic highlights its main advantage – sloping walls. A neatly fitting bed and work area in an avant-garde style makes a teenager’s room individual.
10. Flawlessly white classic
Agree. This interior is incomparable in its whiteness, which resembles space. Attractive wall decorations draw the eye to the window, forcing you to look somewhere far away. Laconically built-in drawers give the overall mood of order and tranquility.
11. Blue, gray and… yellow
What colors are ideal for a bedroom? Today, different shades of blue and light blue are winning by a margin. They promote calmness and relaxation, so you can’t go without bedding, bedspreads, throw pillows, or rugs in this palette. There are so many shades that you will find the perfect one: indigo, azure, aqua, sky.
Another popular color for the bedroom is gray. It can go into blue, beige, and pink shades; therefore, it is considered universal. Yellow accents – decor and textiles – will help make a gray room cozier and livelier.
12. Laconic headboard
The headboard of artsy forms with a carriage coupler this season gives way to laconic wooden or textile headboards. Attention is now on the design of the bed (bedspreads, decorative pillows) and the walls. Since the headboard does not hide it, you can arrange an art gallery, hang decor, or paste wallpaper with a print.
13. Metal lamps
Shiny materials are welcome in the design of the bedroom. Copper and brass elements are present in almost every Scandinavian-style interior and are often found together. Do not be afraid to combine different metals in the same room: the old rules can be broken.
14. Non-standard bedside tables
The usual identical bedside tables are the last century. Today, designers offer to use a wide variety of furniture: put a colored chair on one side of the bed and a chest of drawers on the other (we are sure you will need additional storage space). In place of the bedside table, there can also be a rack, several wooden boxes, a stool – everything on which you can put a lamp and put a couple of books.
Velvet will make any bedroom more comfortable and luxurious. A bed with a pile of soft pillows and a chic bedspread will become the center of the room and possibly the whole house. If the bedroom has room for additional furniture, put a comfortable chair with velvet upholstery – the perfect place to relax is ready.
16. Gentle loft
Traditionally, the loft-style has been associated with rough textures, brutal interiors, and not very cozy spaces. Times are changing, and today, it is one of the most popular styles for decorating a bedroom. Light brick, shiny metal, many textiles – and here it is, an ideal place to relax.
