Think that you can get by with a neglected bedroom just because it’s small? Think again! Our bedrooms are so much more than the rooms where we place our beds – they are visual representations of our personalities and styles; they are the spaces that need to calm us down after a hard day and revitalise us for the next day, so how can you possibly consider not putting in a little effort to treat your bedroom to some beauty just because it’s tiny?

To get you started, we’ve sourced these 20 bedrooms that are small yet super stylish – let’s see some beautifying tips and tricks!

1. An all-light colour scheme adds visual spaciousness – just play around with various textures to interrupt the monotony.

2. Wall shelves not only add storage space, but interest.

3. There’s a whole world of neutral hues just waiting to be discovered. Think beiges, stone greys, off-whites, etc.

4. Adding a dash of darker hues to your bedroom’s focal wall (behind the bed) can add some visual depth to the space.

5. Is that wallpaper or paint? Doesn’t matter, because those walls enjoy such rich colour and texture that the entire room’s covered in character.

8. Nothing’s stopping you from adding a little interest to your walls, like this painted beauty.

9. An exposed brick wall (as long as it’s on only one surface) adds interest and visual space without closing in the entire room.

11. Look to the floor as well – a stunning rug can beautifully anchor your sleeping space.

12. Who said grey needs to be boring? Play around with different hues, patterns and textures for some visual interest.

13. Should you want to opt for brightly coloured walls, make sure your bed flaunts a light, neutral look to make it stand out.

14. Start seeing floating shelves as part of the décor, as they are available in so many different styles, designs and colours.

15. Colours need to complement one another – do you see how the scatter cushions reflect the hues in the wall art?

16. Double-duty furniture is vital for small spaces, like this bed with built-in storage compartments.

17. This bedroom lures us in with its romantic touches, floral prints and soft hues – so much so, that we completely forget about its size.

18. As long as you don’t overdo it, feel free to play with rich textures to add character, like leather and wood.

19. A tiny room can still enjoy some striking wallpaper on one wall – you don’t want the room to feel even more boxed in.

20. On the other hand, a subtle look for your walls can beautifully complement a bed’s busy and colourful design.
