It is the most significant room in your house that you share with your partner. Therefore, the design of the bedroom requires special attention to detail. Many people put so many things in the room that the space looks cramped. But you never want a bedroom that feels small, cluttered, and uncomfortable. A professional interior designer understands all the tricks to make a room appear larger than it is. Continue reading this article to know more about how you can make your bedroom look spacious.
Declutter The Bedroom: The Zen-inspired interior designs are in vogue in America. Many people want to declutter their space and are going for a minimalistic décor. One of the rules of minimalism is to keep only the necessary things and leave the rest out. This is especially true for a bedroom because the room is a dedicated space for sleep, and you don’t want stuff that you don’t need to declutter the sleeping area.
- Add plenty of storage in the living area or some other part of the house. Keep your valuable things in this storage instead of piling them up in the bedroom. Even if you have dedicated storage space in the bedroom, consider keeping extra stuff in the storage in another part of the house.
- If you don’t have a dedicated dressing space or a walk-in closet, consider building one. A walk-in closet considerably frees up bedroom space. You can put your dressing table in the walk-in closet to get ready before stepping out.
Open Up The Space: Those with a balcony or loft can combine the outside with the interior space to make the room appear larger. You may install french iron doors with glass panels attached to them to let the natural light flow into the bedroom. The glassdoor allows the vision to move from the bedroom space to the outside loft area making the space look more open and bright. Incorporating natural light is a fantastic way to keep the décor bright.
Use Small Furniture: Be conscious about the furniture you put in your bedroom. You don’t want too many items taking up the space. The goal should be to move freely in your bedroom without getting bumped into the furniture that blocks the way. Therefore, only keep the things you need to create a sense of spaciousness in the bedroom.
Wall Color: Avoid installing busy wallpapers in the bedroom; the pattern might seem interesting, but not many wallpapers work in a small bedroom. You can always go with minimalistic wallpaper to create a sense of calmness in the space or eliminate wallpaper altogether and paint the room in muted tones. Most designers would suggest incorporating gray tones and light hues to give the room a more spacious and open feel. There is a range of monochromatic palettes available for one to choose from when it comes to selecting the bedroom color.
