If you have a big house with a big bedroom, then you are lucky but if you have a small house with smaller interiors, you are still lucky because we are here to tell you how to develop a clever layout that makes it look bigger! We have some very simple, practical and mostly inexpensive tips for bedroom décor that will make it seem more spacious.
For starters, the most important thing to keep in mind is that painting a wall in a lighter shade will allow a feeling of more space, unlike deeper shades which make spaces seem smaller. So, it makes sense to opt for lighter shades for your bedroom walls. After the walls have been dealt with, focus on your bed and though you may love the idea of a king size, it will end up taking all your space. Be practical and reduce the size of your bed as much as you can, so that you can save some space for the basic furniture required.
Now that we've tackled the bed, we suggest you go in for built in shelving which will provide you with smart storage spaces without encroaching floor space. The extra advantage of inbuilt shelving is that if you recess the bed in the middle of the shelves, then the units on the side can serve as bedside table.
Also ensure that the built in shelves extend all the way to the ceiling, which will make the ceiling appear higher. To add more depth, paint the back wall of the shelves in a darker colour so that it gives the illusion of them being deeper than they actually are.
We hope you can use these basic ideas to make your cramped space appear spacious and cosy, without having to make too many changes!
