Whether your bedroom is blessed with tons of space or cursed with the same space Harry Potter had under the stairs, we at Perfect Property Ireland have assembled a list of 8 handy ways to maximize the space in your bedroom:
Bed With Storage
Choose a mattress that is equipped with storage capabilities. Select one that is high off the ground so you can store items below, or choose a bed that comes with built-in drawers.
Go Vertical With Storage
Wall space is vital for storing items in a small bedroom. Consider installing floating shelves, decorative storage ladders, or wall-mounted furniture.
Choose Double-Duty Furniture
Multi-purposed purchase furniture. Select a nightstand that is also a desk, or small storage cabinets instead of a traditional side table.
Mirrors & Proper Lighting
Mirrors aren’t just practical for getting yourself ready in the morning; they also create the illusion of more light and space. The bigger, the better! Ideally, place it so that it reflects a window; that way, it opens up the room.
Multi-colored walls or dark paint colors on more than one wall can create a closed-in effect. Choose light and airy colors that will make your space appear larger. If you want to go bold, choose one wall as a statement, we love forest green or a deep burgundy.
Declutter and Use Less Furniture
It may be tempting to incorporate a lot of petite furniture and decorative items into your room. However, these smaller pieces create a cluttered look. Instead, choose a few larger and double functioning pieces of furniture to maximize space in your bedroom. When decorating, choose one or two statement pieces of art and only a few trinkets or decorative items.
Make the Most Out of Your Wardrobe
Even small closets can store multiple items. Consider installing an organization system and utilize the wardrobe doors by putting in hanging storage racks.
Use Decorative Storage Boxes
Conceal items by placing them in beautiful storage containers. Create the illusion that storage boxes are for fashion instead of function!
