4 ways to realise the potential of a small bedroom


Posted 28th June

A small bedroom can lead to some serious teeth gnashing, but we have some good news for you - it doesn't need to be the end of the world.

Instead, you simply need to think in a way that helps you maximise both your style and space potential.

If you don't know what this involves, we've spoken to the experts at Spaceslide who are explaining exactly what you can do. It's time to get smart and act in a practical way...

1. Clutter elimination

In a small bedroom, one thing that's crucial is simplicity. Tidy away anything that shouldn't be out, whether it's an unsightly knotted phone charger, a pair of shoes or a screwed up t-shirt. If you're really pushed for space, you could always try using storage boxes - these can then be hidden beneath the bed or wardrobe and before you know it, you'll have clear surfaces.

2. Clever storage

A way to maximise your storage will be by making the most of an empty space. A great solution to try will be a built-in wardrobe with sliding doors. It's not only minimalist in style but provides you with a lot of extra storage too. Sliding doors creates a more spacious feeling in your room, as the doors don't open into the room - this, in turn, gives you more room for a bed or sofa.

3. It's an illusion

Use mirrors to magnify the space – something like a free-standing full length mirror can bounce natural light across the room to make it feel both larger and airier. It also gives you the chance to get more creative - you could pick a wardrobe frame to matches the wall paint to give you the illusion of a larger room.

4. Away we go

In a small bedroom, the largest surface area will be the ceiling. Therefore, start to use this space. If you hang decorative items from the ceiling, you achieve two things - you not only free up space, but also naturally draw the eye upwards. For instance, a good space saving tip could be hanging pendant lights instead of having a bedside table lamp.
