In most cases, bedrooms tend to be quite small when living in apartments or small houses. But we spend quite a lot of time in the bedroom whether it is getting ready to go out or relaxing during the day. If you are living in a small bedroom and you want to increase the space that you already have, there are some ingenious strategies that you can try out.
One of the things that take up space in your bedroom is the bed, which is the main element. While this is perfectly fine when you’re sleeping at night, it can make the space quite cramped when you want to study or work during the day. A good solution for this dilemma is space-saving beds for adults. They are beds that are fixed to the wall and can be brought down by a safety mechanism. You can pull the bed up and fit it to the wall during the day clearing up a significant area of the bedroom. This will effortlessly transform the bedroom into a study or office room in the daytime. You can also do certain finishes to give the illusion that there is space. Using mirrors on the wall can trick your brain into believing the spaciousness of the bedroom getting rid of some of the claustrophobia you may experience in a tight space.
Another trick for visual comfort is the use of a wall-mounted nightstand. As this doesn’t occupy space on the floor, it will give the illusion that the space is bigger. You can also use this space to keep shoes or books. You can also mount a wall lamp on the wall just above the nightstand to further increase space efficiency. Wall-mounted elements are a great way of saving floor space and offering a spacious aesthetic. Wall shelves are another element that contributes to this effect. If you don’t have space for a nightstand, you can have wall-mounted shelves above the bed. You can also use the above study table. This is a great way to store all your books. You can also add high shelves above the wall-mounted open or closed shelves if you have items that you occasionally used. These can be stored inside the high shelf or cupboard and kept out of your way.
You have to think about the lighting of the room as well. Of course, you can have task lighting when it comes to working during an overcast day, but a good idea is to use wall sconces so that there are no harsh ceiling lights beating down on you. Wall lamps also don’t take up the space like a wall lamp. You can also have multi-use furniture. A table can double as a nightstand. You can also have a bed that is also a storage cupboard by having drawers underneath. If there is unused space above your headboard, you can install a shelf for some additional storage.
