Decorating small rooms and coming up with ways to save space and make rooms look larger represents a special challenge for most homeowners. It takes creativity and forethought to come up with an effective space saving room design without compromising on home decor.
Well there are many ways to make a room appear larger than it is. So how do you make your bedroom appear spacious? Try some of these useful tips:
Tips 1. Make Small Bedroom Look Bigger With Large Window
Try letting the sun in with Cozy Modern Bedrooms with Large Window. Believe it or not, light always seems to open a room. Plenty of natural light will fool the eye into making it appear larger. Do not cover the room up with heavy dark drapes. If your room doesn’t get a lot of sun light, you can always put a few lamps around to give the illusion of light. Use halogen light bulbs, they have the most natural light.
Tips 2. Make Small Bedroom Look Bigger With Mirror
One of the best, least expensive ways to decorate small rooms and create the illusion of more space is with the use of a mirror. A Futuristic Mirror in Modern Small Bedroom, especially a large wall mirror, will act as a room expander when strategically placed to reflect light or an attractive element in the room. Such as a window with a scenic view, a doorway into another room, a fireplace, or artwork.
A lighted mirror will add warmth and depth to a small room with otherwise subdued lighting. A large mirror on the long wall of a narrow room will make the room appear wider.
Use mirrors. You can place one or two mirrors and hang them on a wall on the opposite side of the window, it will show natural light and make the room appear brighter with a more open look. It can also reflect the outside so you will feel nature all around you.
Tips 3. Make Small Bedroom Look Bigger With Minimalist Furniture
When you have furniture, make sure it fits the space you have. You wouldn’t want to put a full size bed in a small bedroom. Pieces of furniture always look smaller in the store. So when shopping for furniture, you should measure your room and the furniture to get an idea of the scale of the furniture in the room.

Tips 4. Make Small Bedroom Look Bigger With Multifunctional Furniture

When you are looking to save space, you can make the room with furniture that can serve as a night stand, have a snack, sit or to play board games, such as an ottoman, stools or even storage containers.

Tips 5. Make Small Bedroom Look Bigger With Light Colors
Use light colors. Do not use dark colors in a small room. Light colors or whites can make a room seem larger. Paint the walls and ceilings the same color. This makes the eyes think the ceiling is higher than it actually is. Light-color solid-surface counter tops visually brighten the room and makes it appear larger.

Tips 6. Make Small Bedroom Look Bigger With Little Accecories
Do not over decorate. You do not need to put many accessories in a small room, it will just take up space and give the room a cluttered look. All you would need are a few throw pillows, lamps and some art on the walls. Give it a soft finishing touch avoiding unnecessary items.
Too many objects and too many prints will make the room appear smaller, stuffy, and closed in; instead of open, airy, and relaxing. Although using wall space can be helpful for creating more floor space, too many things on the wall will make the room appear overcrowded and smaller.
Tips 7. Make Small Bedroom Look Bigger With Vertical Stripes Wallpaper
Another idea for how to make a small room look bigger is to use vertical stripes on the walls – drawing the eye upward and giving the illusion of a higher ceiling. Simple, sheer window coverings will allow in more light and help the room feel more open. See also about Luxury Wallpaper Designs For Modern Interior Decoration
