Simple, Doable Changes to Help Upgrade Your Tiny Bedroom
A new coat of paint can easily make your room seem more relaxing.
Your bedroom is probably the first thing you’d want to redecorate when given the chance, and why not—this is the place where you spend most of your time at home, which is why it should be arranged so as to create an atmosphere that's both personal and relaxing.
Redecorating a tiny bedroom can still be a chore, however, especially if you have little storage and a lot of clutter. Before anything else, you may want to sift through your things first to see which ones you can let go of. (Read here for ways on how you can declutter your space.) Once you’re done, here are a few upgrading tips you can try:
Repaint the wall behind your bed’s headboard.
While an all-white interior can look clean and sharp, going two-tone can add depth to your bedroom. Don’t be afraid to use a dark color for your wall. Dark blues, grays, and even blacks can be soothing in a place of rest, as these reflect less light, and you need less light if for better sleep.
RL Tip: Feel free to go with interesting textures and patterns.
Change your overhead lamp/s.
Whether you’re buying a pre-built home or renting, you get stock lighting fixtures which are often not really suited to your taste. Change them out! While there are lamps which are specified for different areas of the home, don’t feel bound by these rules: if you find that a living room lighting fixture can work well in your bedroom, feel free to mix and match!
Don’t forget your ceiling!
There are so many things you can do with your ceiling. You can opt to give it a new swipe of paint or hang interesting décor—just remember that it also needs regular cleaning.
Invest in storage you can easily hide or blend with your décor.
If you need additional storage space (and you’re not too worried about breaking a feng shui rule or two), you can buy PVC drawers and store them under your bed. Installing floating or corner shelves is also a great option as they can double as spaces for décor.
Plants can make any room look and feel more restive, and you don’t need a huge space for them! Plants like porthos are hardy, and can be kept indoors in soil or in water. Simply allow then a small area they can thrive and crawl on for a natural touch.
Buy curtains and bed sheets that match your room’s theme.
Many people often forget about curtains and bed sheets, thinking that anything functional will do. But just as much as your furniture and accessories can change the vibe of your space, so do the colors and textures of the fabrics you bring in. Spend more time thinking about them, and you’ll find that your room will feel more cohesive and comfortable.
