Thrifty Ways For Small Spaces

The bedroom is the most private part of every house. While it should be a place where you can find peace and tranquility, it should also reflect its occupant's personality and needs. As everybody longs for a calming haven that encourages relaxation, having a small bedroom is not a hindrance for such desire. Of course, tearing down your walls and expanding your room is not frugal in any way, so listed below are some tips that you can do without spending that much money.


Have Adequate Lighting

Since lighting usually determine the mood and atmosphere in a bedroom, your chosen type of illumination can have a major impact on how large or small your room appears. Try not to limit the room to a single light source. You may add floor and table lamps or an overhead light. You may also consider decorating your indoor fireplaces minimally. If you make wise lighting decisions, you can successfully give your small living space the illusion of being much larger than it really is.

Choose Your Furniture

Do not add something to your home unless it is useful and beautiful. Buying items that are not essential to the way your family lives, even if everyone else has one is a big no, no. Remember you need to maximize space; a purchase of unnecessary stuffs will defeat such purpose. If you don't read, then don't keep books. If you don't drink coffee, then spare buying a coffee maker for something more practical.


Have The Right Items At The Right Place

Choosing the right furniture for your bedroom is a help. Having them on the appropriate place is another story. Wrongly placed furniture probably is the most common big mistake everyone commits. Minimize accessories. It makes your home cluttered and messy. Avoid putting stuffs in hallways, unless needed. It will help in making the entrance of your bedroom look wider.

Make the Most Out Of Walls And Ceilings

The ceiling is the most unconsumed part of a room. Consider hanging artistic pieces instead of cluttering your shelves. Using a variety of built ins is also another positive way to maximize your bedroom space. A headboard that is decorative, as well as practical, is significantly necessary when you're working with a limited space.


Use Mirrors

One of the easiest and most cost effective tricks in interior design is creating the illusion of space with mirrors. They can have a favorable impact on your room's appearance. You may use a single large mirror, or perhaps sectional mirrors, to trick the eye into believing that the space actually extends further than it does.

Blend Colors

Pick a color scheme that is pleasing to the eyes. Usually shades close to white create a spacious impression. Play with colors and create an illusion. Brightly colored walls are reflective. Light colored objects appear closer while darker ones create a distant facade. Painting your moldings with a lighter color than your wallpaper makes the wall of your room appear further, making your room appear bigger.

Favor Vertical Lines

Patterns of vertical stripes make any object appear taller. If your bedroom happens to have a low ceiling, then utilizing such design is favorable. You may also opt in using long straight curtains that drop fantastically compared to shorter ones.
