Not all homeowners have bedrooms they can call spacious. And this is especially true for people who live in apartments or flats that are already small: their bedrooms will also tend to be not that big in space. Since they also live in small homes already, even if they want to renovate to expand or make their bedrooms bigger, they cannot do so because the overall area space just cannot allow them to do so.
The good news for people who find their bedrooms small and campy is that there are certain remodeling and improvement tips you can follow and carry out to make your beloved sleeping chamber look bigger and more expansive. By doing and following the tips below, you can move around and stay more comfortably in your bedroom.
For starters, get rid of any clutter in your small bedroom (and even around your home) to really maximize the space you are currently staying in. You will find that throwing or giving away any unused items at your place will certainly give you additional space to move around.
If you have the budget and time, change the paint color of your room. In general, having lighter paint colors in any room makes it looks more spacious and can induce a brighter ambience and over-all mood in it.
You can also place big mirrors around your room. Mirrors reflect light and images and when you have them in your bedroom, they will produce an illusion that your room is more spacious than it actually is.
Another trick to make small bedrooms look larger is to invest in high quality and space-saving bedroom furniture. For instance, you can get a loft bed so that you can still hide or place some of your other stuff under it. Or have a specially-designed book-shelf mounted on the wall that does not reach the floor so that you are given additional space to move around. For kids who have small bedrooms, parents can get high sleeper beds for them. This will certainly provide children additional playing spaces in their rooms or bare areas to place additional stuff in.
Lastly, it is important to arrange all the furniture in your sleeping room properly to give you more movement and good traffic. This means not placing your bed in the center of the room since this can just prohibit your free movement. The same goes for any tables, the TV and other bulky furniture that you think looks better when they are in the middle of your room. Place them beside walls or in corners so that you can have more space to walk in and move around.
