Want to free up some floor space in your small bedroom? Want your room to feel larger?

Arranging and decorating a small bedroom with minimal floor space may seem like a daunting task. But with a few easy changes here and there, your small bedroom will feel more spacious and functional.

Here's is a few easy tips to making the most out of your small bedroom 

When Decorating A Small Bedroom

01.Start with the Layout



Begin styling your small bedroom by placing your bed at the center of the most visible wall. This simple step creates a balanced and inviting focal point that sets the foundation for an easy flow when adding essential elements like nightstands, a rug, and any other bedroom necessities.

So, start with the heart of the room – your bed – and let the rest of your bedroom essentials fall into place effortlessly.



A platform bed is a perfect solution to arranging a small bedroom. It adds storage below for your shoe collection or extra bedding. Another great option would be a built-in multipurpose headboard with shelving and side closet space. They provide practical storage and shelving above for your magazines or jewelry as they super  functional without taking up a lot of floor space but adding a lot of storage. 



Make a small room feel larger and a great way to add softness to your room. Always choose the right rug size to compliment your small bedroom. Following the beds lead is a easy way to finding the right size. The rug should fit 2/3 under the bed.



Making use of storage furniture. A storage bench is perfect for storing extra sheets and pillows and it also gives you a seating area. Big furniture is not a good idea in a small bedroom so why not use a small dresser instead and opt out to using a nightstand.  This will also benefit in additional storage for your out of season clothes and items.



When dealing with a cozy bedroom and not a ton of floor space, think vertical! Use the space on your walls. Wall mount your TV instead of using a unit. It not only looks sleek but also gives you more floor space to play with. Consider adding some floating shelves – they're fantastic for stacking your favorite books or showcasing photos.



Free up some space on your nightstands in your small bedroom by swapping out those side lamps for stylish wall sconces, floor lamps or a pendant light fixture! It's a win-win, giving you that extra counter space on your nightstands. You get more room to place your essentials like books, glasses, or that cup of tea, all while adding a chic and functional element to your bedroom decor.
