The bedroom should be a private space where you can relax and unwind after a hard day’s work. It should be comfortable and cozy. Problems arise when it comes to lack of space, especially in the bedroom because cramped space can be quite limiting. The lack of space in the bedroom can cause problems. In a small bedroom, everything can look more cluttered than it really is. Narrow bedrooms in particular have this problem. The design of the bedroom can greatly contribute to the lack of space. The wrong kind of design can make the space look even more cramped. Thankfully, there are some ways to make a narrow bedroom look wider and larger. With a few simple tips, you can decorate in such a way as to make your bedroom look like it is twice as large.
Here are a few simple tips on how to decorate a narrow bedroom:
- Before anything else, clean your bedroom. Because it is a narrow room, all the clutter can be accentuated. If your room is really cluttered, this can make the space even more cramped. You need a place to relax and unwind, and this is almost impossible in a messy bedroom. Take the time to clear out the mess. Organize your things so you can move more freely. You should also throw away or sell the things you don’t use anymore. This will free up a lot of space, and will instantly make the room look bigger.
- Use mirrors to create the illusion of width. Hang a lot of mirrors on the walls where your room is narrow. You should place them in such a way that they face each other. This will create the illusion of width as they mirror the space. It also brings in a lot of light into the room, which makes it appear bigger.
- Paint the walls in light shade to bring more light in. Colors like cream, beige, light blue and other cool, light colors will help make the room appear bigger. Yellow is also a great color as it is bright and sunny.
- Choose a color palette and incorporate this into the room. A single color palette will help synchronize the design of the room. This is a trick used by many professional interior designers to help make any space look bigger. If you chose pastel colors as your color palette, for example, your entire window blinds or curtains, linens, comforters, pillows, walls and furniture will have to be in varying shades of that color. However, you don’t have to be afraid to add a little pop of color every now and then. Surprising colors like red, blue or green can come as accent pieces, to add more interest and personality to your bedroom.
Show your personality in the decoration of your bedroom. These are guidelines to help you create more space, but you still need to be creative and imaginative. These tips will help you decorate a narrow bedroom to make it look more spacious.
