Most of us are familiar with small bedrooms that, once a bed is placed in there, are pretty useless in terms of space. And that also includes very little potential in terms of design and décor. After all, just like a kitchen with a simple little stove, what good is a bedroom that only has enough space for a boring old bed?

Not to worry, for there are quite a few ways to make your modern bedroom come to stylish life and turn it into something much more practical – and we have them right here!

1. Use the room’s height (i.e. its walls) for items like shelving, wall art, etc.

2. Is it at all possible to dig into the wall and make up a niche or bay window? Then do it!

3. Dark colours will cramp up a small room; light neutrals are your friends!

4. Mirrors not only increase visual spaciousness, but help in bouncing light around the room.

5. Any furniture with built-in storage is worth gold!

6. If you MUST have a TV in there, then ditch the TV stand and opt for a wall-mounted model to save on floor space.

Let’s scope out some more ideas when it comes to Living in small spaces.
