How to furnish a small bedroom

How to furnish a small bedroom

By daniele

If you have a small sleeping area, the choice of furniture and their layout is one of the key elements to obtain a spacious and comfortable room at the same time. The mission is to reconcile a good-looking design with a whole series of minimal comforts that make the bedroom more livable while increasing the perception of space. The result should not weigh down the space, already reduced, but at the same time it should contain all that furniture essential for daily comfort.

A minimal design

Here comes into play the minimal furniture that thanks to its light shapes and essential furniture makes the environment much more tidy, which also results in a more spacious perception of the whole. The modern style is perfectly suited to the functionality required with large storage beds in which to cram maybe the change of season or maybe with a floating bed that in addition to being of great impact, very easy cleaning and makes the environment less heavy. During the design phase an excellent solution to enhance the environment is to insert a built-in wardrobe with sliding doors or maybe a walk-in closet recessed at the corner. The alternative to save even more space is to place the bridge wardrobe above the bed, perhaps incorporating a mirror to give more depth to the room. 

The choice of colors and lights

The color you choose for the walls is an aspect not to be underestimated. To make the larger room appear, it is advisable to use uniform colors for both the walls and the furniture, perhaps varying on the color scale but not using risky combinations. Neutral colors are always those that bring better results such as white or gray, able to give brightness and volume to the environment of the small bedroom. One idea might also be to paint the ceiling the same color as the main wall to give a sense of greater length of space. The use of a mirror also allows you to create a perspective illusion on the short side, making it appear wider and proportionate than the side walls. Lighting also plays an important role in the perception of spaces: by placing lights that can illuminate both vertically and horizontally the space, it will be larger at first glance and the atmosphere will be much more welcoming. The important thing is to always stay in line with the style chosen for the room. A too aggressive light or an exaggeratedly large chandelier could create the opposite effect and weigh down the whole environment usually used for moments of relaxation.
