When we think of small spaces, it’s common to instantly imagine a cramped, uncomfortable, and constricting room. If you’re currently faced with the challenge of turning a small bedroom into a relaxing personal space, a few tips may come in handy. Working on a few edits can turn your space into a calming sanctuary you’d love to escape to. Get started with these must-dos:

1. Clean up your clutter.

Nothing says cramped more than a cluttered space. Start your room transformation by getting rid of unnecessary clutter. May it be stacks of books you’ve finished reading, random trinkets, clothes that don’t quite fit, or bottles of products you don’t actually use, throw them out. But if there are things in your space that you absolutely need to keep, you can start by sorting them instead.

Put into storage bins items that you don’t need on a daily basis and place them in their proper place like under your bed or inside a storage cabinet (away from sight). Speaking of beds, certain furniture can also pose as an excess in your room. You can switch up your king-size bed with a smaller one that’s practical for your space. After a deep cleaning session, your room will look and feel lighter.

2. Choose light colors.


Light and cool colors can help you achieve a serene and inviting atmosphere. These allow light to reflect across the room and make the space appear bigger—especially when you maintain a white ceiling (it helps create an illusion of a taller space). For your walls, pick a shade that’s calming like powder blue, green, lavender, light grey and neutral tones to create a cozy, relaxing retreat.

3. Add good lighting.

Other than changing your wall colors, introducing light into your space can also change the entire ambiance. Strategically placing pin lights onto your ceiling that will spread light across every inch of your room will drastically open up the space; especially at night (because dingy isn’t at all calming). You can then add lamps in warmer tones to change up the mood when you want the room to be more intimate.

4. Choose white sheets.

The secret to why hotel rooms are so inviting is because they all use white sheets on their beds. To make your bedroom more inviting, invest in good, white, cotton sheets for your own bed. It will immediately transform your bed—making it feel like you’re sleeping on clouds. This is also perfect for our warmer climate because darker sheets absorb heat that radiates through our windows. White sheets will keep your bed cool and keep you relaxed at night.

5. Get a scent diffuser.

Calming scents can help lighten the mood and make you feel at ease. Choose sweet and soothing scents like pine, lavender, and jasmine. Your chosen scent can help set the mood in your space and keep it smelling clean all-day, too.
