A small bedroom can still give you a great night's sleep and everything you need, if you get a little more clever with how you furnish it.

While interior designers might like you to think otherwise, there really aren't any secrets to garnering a little more room for yourself, it all just comes down to common sense and a tangible need to make a room work. We've found some fantastic small bedrooms that really show how it's done so, if you're ready to get a little more creative with your layout, let's take a look!

1. If you can't spread out, build up! This is great for extra storage

2. The space above your pillows is being wasted, if you don't have handy cabinets up there

3. Put your windowsill to good use, as that will negate the need for side tables

4. Don't waste precious room on standard lamps. Get some funky pendulums!

5. Make every piece of furniture multifunctional so you don't need to add more than you have room for

6. Try to opt for a bed that has integral storage. Pull-out drawers are handy for storing bulky spare bedding

7. Ditch your bedside tables altogether and you'll have more room for wardrobes, which are more useful

8. Customise furniture to perfectly meet your needs

9. Build wall cavity shelves so your items don't jut out into the room

10. Really try to tap into the potential that your ceiling has to offer. Otherwise, it's all just dead space!

11. If you have an old fireplace that you don't use, why not keep books in it?

12. Wall mount everything you can, to save floor space

13. If you can, pare back your needs to the most basic level then all you need is a bed!
