Bedroom can often become the graveyard for random items and it can easily become an overcrowded room. But keeping your bedroom tidy is really important since it is the room where you sleep and relax.
You can make your bedroom appear more spacious by trying out these five simple ways to increase space in the room.
1. Trick The Room To Appear Bigger With Colours And Mirrors
If you have a small bedroom then you might be quite limited with your options to increase floor space and make more space available. But you can try a bit of optical illusion and make your bedroom appear more spacious than it is.
First, it is important to choose light colours for the walls and main décor to give the room a more spacious feel. Dark shades often make a space seem smaller and you should avoid picking them in your bedroom.
Another great way to make the room look bigger is to add mirrors in the room. You should for example go for big mirror doors or adding a slim mirror that runs from the floor to the ceiling on the wall.
2. Add Only Essential Furniture
It is also a good idea to de-clutter the bedroom. This doesn’t just mean going through all the wardrobes and drawers and getting rid of all unwanted items but you should also see if you have too much furniture in the bedroom.
You only really need the essentials in a functional bedroom and these include the bed, bedside tables, a chair, small table, wardrobe and a possible drawer. For instance, when you are choosing the chair go for a simple chair instead of a large armchair.
3. Utilise The Space Under Your Bed
Your bed will take up majority of your floor space in the bedroom and it is important to fully utilise all the empty space under your bed. Make sure your bed either has in-built storage underneath or is high enough from the floor for you to add your own boxes.
Martha Stewart’s website has a nice idea of a box with wheels that you can make yourself and store underneath the bed.
4. Add Shelves Onto The Walls
You can save floor space by limiting the use of bookshelves and tables in the bedroom and instead opt for shelves on the walls. This is a really simple way to add space to the room without really giving up on storage space.
You can place shelves around the walls and include your favourite books or picture frames to add personality to the room. You can also place a shelf on top of your bed, which really utilises the space efficiently.
5. Smart Wardrobe Solutions
Make sure your wardrobe is making the most out of the space available and learn how to fill it with clothes efficiently without making it seem crammed.
A great way to utilise space in your room efficiently is to get rid of conventional wardrobe doors and choose sliding wardrobe doors for bedrooms instead. You can look for more information at the Superglide website.
