Handy Hints To Get The Most From Your Bedroom Space

Monday, June 15, 2015

Your bedroom is your inner sanctum, the place where you can relax and unwind even if the rest of the household is going crazy. This space is very personal, very cosy and very cramped? Wouldn’t it be much comfortable if it were bigger than it is now? You may not be able to make it larger, but there are things that you can do to make it seem that way.

Give our top tips for bigger looking bedroom a try, and let’s see if we can put the cosy feeling back in.

● Get rid of all the clutter

We all know there’s clutter, it happens to the very best of us. The more things you have in your bedroom, the tinier it is going to feel. Have a good look around the room - can you see the space where the wall meets the floor? If you can’t, then it’s a pretty good bet that there are too many ‘things’ in here. Consider moving some of the furniture out if you can spare it. Things like stereos and random tables don’t need to be in here, so take them out and put them somewhere else. On entering the bedroom, you want your gaze to move uninterrupted as you look around. This gives an instant impression of space.

● Scale everything according to the bed

Or, pick a bed to match the size of the room. If your room is on the smaller size, your bed may have to be a little smaller too. You need enough space to move around it, and you don’t want the bed to look huge in that little room. It may be comfy, but if it is eating vital space then consider downsizing. This applies to lamps, dressers, bedside tables and anything that has to be in there. Everything has to be to proper scale.

● Consider creating a tray ceiling

To create an illusion of space, you could use plastic mouldings to create a tray ceiling. If there is any job that you are not comfortable with, hiring a handyman could be a good idea. Either way, a tray ceiling painted a light color can open up a room and make it seem much bigger than it is.

● Opt for mirrored doors

If you can, then consider using mirrored doors. This includes the wardrobe, the bedroom door and the closet door if one is built in. Using mirrors to give the illusion of space is an idea that is centuries old. If you can’t mirror your doors, consider putting a floor to ceiling mirror on a wall. The amount light reflected off it will also add to the effect.

● Get creative with your storage

Furthering the decluttering idea, you can use decorative wicker baskets those small items in that don’t have to be lying around. If your children keep leaving their toys in your room. Put them in one of these baskets.

It can be challenging to make a small room bigger, but with a bit of creativity you can probably do it an afternoon or two if you set your mind to. Put your thinking cap on, and see what else you can come up with.
