Maybe you think that small bedrooms have to have small beds. But, the key is that they should be low, as in the height of the mattress.

If you have a small bedroom choose a low bed, including opting for a tatami. These are ideal for limited space since they allow air to circulate and they freshen the space. Search for these on Amazon.

Do you need a main focus?

Did you know that all rooms need a focal point?  This refers to whether we talk about the living room, the dining room, or the bedroom. If rooms are small, a focal point is indispensable.

You can use a designer lamp, a large photo at the head of the bed, or a beautiful wallpaper decorating one of the walls. Above all, there should be a focal point that captures attention. This avoids a sensation of claustrophobia.

Small bedrooms and headboards – yes or no

The idea is not to have too many objects that give an oppressive feeling. So you need to find a minimalist style. You already know the importance that Feng Shui gives to headboards, so don’t forego them.

The only thing that you should take into account is to avoid hanging pictures on the same wall as the headboard as this overloads the room.

You can opt to put a large picture in place of a headboard, but never both together. Therefore, the point is to create a relaxing atmosphere that invites you to relaxing sleep.

Perfect nightstands

Avoid the nightstand being the focal point. In small bedrooms, you look for something very simple.

You could have a footstool and even better if it’s made of the same material as the bed. This way you’ll create harmony. Look for an item that’s firm, pretty, and that combines with the rest of the room.

Also, only a few things should be on the nightstand. Since this a small room, it’s essential to keep it tidy. That’s why the ideal is not to have more than 2 or 3 objects on the nightstand. Go for large articles such as a lamp, a small box, a framed photo, in place of many small things.

Bed linen for small bedrooms

Small spaces require fewer things, so your bed should be as uncluttered as possible. Forget having one of those beds full of pillows of all shapes and sizes since they’ll make the room feel smaller.

Try to create a serene space full of harmony. For instance, use soft colors and choose bed linen that’s as soft and lightweight as possible. So, small flowers, printed in pastel colors, or in the monochromatic colors that the Nordic countries love will be a perfect choice.

As you can see, it’s about maintaining a balance between things that you have, the size and visual space. In small bedrooms, the idea is to choose light and simple objects as well as beautiful items.

On the other hand, uncluttered environments help you get better rest. It’s not recommended to fill rooms with furniture and decorative items.
