We, for one, love cozy bedrooms. Save the sprawling floor plans for the living area, and leave us to the homey bedrooms made for moody colors, overstuffed duvets, and rainy mornings. In fact, as far as the editors here at Hunker are concerned, limited square footage can actually be your best decorating attribute for styling a small space.
Still, there's a fine line between cozy and cluttered, or charming and boring, for that matter. Making the most of your small bedchamber requires a little extra thought and consideration, which is why we've rounded up the best small bedroom decorating ideas that will have you relishing the quaint size of your space, rather than simply tolerating it.
1. Make a statement with wallpaper.
2. Emphasize vertical space with a canopy.
3. Paint your walls and trim the same color.
Painting walls and trim the same color, like this moody hue from Chris and Julia's home, makes a room feel instantly more spacious since the eye sees only continuous color instead of harsh contrasting lines. The best part of this monochromatic, small bedroom decorating idea is that it will only cost you as much as a can of paint (!).
4. Embrace minimalism.
5. ... or maximalism.
Of course, the other school of thought when it comes to small spaces is to maximize your style and your space. Sunny Circle Studio mixed patterns on patterns with bold artwork, wallpaper, and a healthy dose of color, creating a room that packs a punch and fools you into thinking there's more square footage than meets the eye.
6. Use large-scale furniture.
While your first impulse may be to buy small-scale furniture for a cozy room, doing the opposite actually has a maximizing effect. Using fewer large-scale pieces, as shown in this guest bedroom designed by Shea from Studio McGee, will make your small bedroom feel luxurious and comfortable, while too many small-scale pieces will feel cluttered.
