If you live in a small apartment, space is always going to be an issue. Your bedroom is supposed to be your most intimate space and that might prove to be a problem if you have trouble even fitting a single bed in there. How do you overcome this problem, you ask? Well, here are some great ideas that will transform your tiny bedroom into a decent-looking sanctuary!

Floating Shelves

 Floating shelves add a whimsical touch to your bedroom. This shelf can also be turned into a nightstand so you save space and money on purchasing a bedside table. Feel free to store some books there or handy knick-knacks like an alarm clock or a nice little plant.

Double That Storage

When you lack the option of extra space, any space-saving idea will be a saviour. The most obvious one would be to purchase a bed that doubles as storage. Lots of studio apartments in New York have this handy piece of furniture as a sofa and bed. On the plus side, you get to stuff your pillows and blankets into the drawers when you don’t need them. Pretty handy, huh?

Brighten The Space With Natural Light

If you have a balcony or big windows, that’s one of the best features of your house and it’d be a crime to hide it. It allows plenty of natural light in and gives the impression that your bedroom is much larger than it actually is. Use window treatments like soft fabrics as curtains so they lend the impression of taller windows and strikes a good balance between lovely interior design and comfortable space living.

Mirror, Mirror On The Wall

To create a major visual impact, place a large mirror on one wall to give the illusion of a larger room because the reflection will make the rest of the room appear bigger. It also adds depth and appeals to the entire aesthetic of the room.

Soft Colours For The Walls

Interior designers are advocates of soft-coloured walls because lighter shades will open up the room, making it appear more spacious. Pale and bright coloured walls reflect light better, thus creating the important illusion of a bigger room. Also, try painting your wall trim a lighter colour than your wall as this will make the walls appear farther back, contributing to the illusion of a broader space.
