5 tips for organizing a small bedroom
Do you have a small bedroom? Do you want to make sure you get the most out of every inch?
We like to think that small spaces are full of enormous opportunities. Here are five ways to make the most of yours.
1. Dock the layout of the small bedroom
Start by putting your bed in the middle of the most visible wall. (It's usually the wall in front of the door.) You'll have enough room to jump under the covers on both sides. Add in two nightstands, if you can.
Designer's Tip: Framing the bed or not, lighter walls make the rooms more spacious.
2. Hide your chest of drawers in the closet
Large furniture can put juice on small rooms. If you have space, roll up your chest or dresser in the closet. You will free valuable space from the floor, enlarge your room and clothes in a comfortable place.
3. Put the carpet carefully
Is your carpet an afterthought? It should not be Can help you make a smaller room bigger, add softness and introduce colors or patterns that combine your design.
Follow the guide of your bed to figure out which rug you need. If the bed is centered, slide the carpet down about 2/3 of the street below. If it's in a corner, put the rug next to it or under another piece of furniture. Learn more about choosing the right size carpet.
4. Become creative with storage space
When it comes to small spaces, storage is essential. Being creative. Use the case under the bed to store off-season clothes and custom shelving for storing items such as shoes and books, for example. You can even put a pouf for storage at the foot of the bed and get an extra seat.
Designer's Tip: Storage beds are another great way to get extra space without sacrificing style.
5. Design your layout
Now that you know the basics, take a pencil and a piece of paper and draw your ideas. Even easier, use our online room planner to organize your space without spending a lot of sweat. You will find it here.
Play until you are convinced that 1) will work or 2) you have to go shopping.
