If you watch a lot of TV, it’s easy to assume that everyone goes to sleep at night in a spacious master bedroom. Unfortunately, many of us know all too well that bedrooms come in a wide range of sizes. If your current bedroom is on the small size, you may assume that creating a beautifully decorated space is a lost cause. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to make a bedroom look more spacious – you just have to know the tricks of the trade. Keep reading to discover some of Pure Parima’s top tips for getting a bigger bedroom without knocking any walls down in the process.
Small rooms can create big decorating challenges. Luckily, there’s an easy solution to creating more space for storage and decor: you just have to think vertically. Built in shelves and bookcases are great for stowing your treasures from first editions to framed photos, candles, and even plants. Shelving is also great if you don’t have a lot of floor space for dressers and wardrobes. You can fold your favorite jeans and sweaters and stow them out in the open. Want an uncommon look? Opt for a ladder shelf and give your bedroom a more playful touch.
Those dark accent walls may be en vogue, but they don’t help a cramped room look more spacious. If you want to open up your master, opt to decorate in pastels. If white is too sterile, pastels can bring life and beauty to a small room without overwhelming it. White and gray furniture is also great for making your room appear airy. To give your bedding a little added interest, consider the Hira Sheet Set featuring 100 percent Giza Egyptian cotton picked by hand in the Nile River Valley. Boasting contemporary accent diamond embroidery, this stylish set comes in an array of soft hues, including classics like Linen and Tan and less common shades such as Soft Peach, Icy Blue, and Spa. Want something more traditional? We love the sleekness of Grey sheets and a matching Hira Duvet Cover.
Choose Tall Curtains
Windows give even small rooms the appearance of being bright and spacious. However, the wrong curtains can ruin this effect. To make a cramped room feel bigger, we recommend choosing tall curtains and hanging them as close to the ceiling as possible. Ideally, the end of the curtain will just brush the floor, and the curtain fabric will complement your bedding. You can also add interest and depth to a room by hanging some floor-length mirrors. For bonus points, angle the mirror toward a window or your favorite painting.
Select Simple Throw Pillows
When it comes to small bedrooms, less is more. However, that doesn’t mean you have to resign yourself to plain and austere furnishings. While it’s fine to include luxe touches like accent pillows and throw blankets, you can avoid overwhelming a small space by keeping the color scheme simple. We recommend choosing a solid color duvet cover or coverlet and accenting with pillows in the same color or shades of the same hue. Keep your bedding from looking dull by choosing pillows with different fabrics and textures, like velvets, corduroys, and even metallics. Of course designing a stylish space doesn’t have to mean sacrificing comfort. Give your back some much-needed support with our Hira Decorative Lumbar Pillow. Boasting contemporary accent diamond embroidery, this highly functional piece is made with silky soft sateen fabric that’s both lustrous and cozy. Use it in bed or prop it on an accent chair or bench for added coziness.
Keep It Clean
If your bedroom is on the small side, keeping clutter to a minimum is crucial. After all, you don’t want to be tripping over piles of clothes or stacks of books every time you walk in the door. Open up a small space by taking time each day to pick up your belongings and put them back in the proper places. (If you don’t have designated spots for laundry and other sundries, take time to create some.) You’ll thank yourself when you wake up the next day to a clean bedroom.
