Bedrooms are our personal havens. It is the only space in our homes where we feel like kings and queens of our own little kingdom. Our bedrooms are bursting with memorabilia, posters, and other stuff that show other people our interests, personality, and design taste. We want our bedrooms to feel just right.
However, we do have to redesign our bedrooms every now and then. A simple push of the furniture may not always do the trick. You might need a complete overhaul when you start moving things in your bedroom. But it can be quite hard to think about what should be done to it if the space is cramped. Yes, we can probably make it feel comfortable and homey if we put plants like lilies ideal for your home or hanging orchids, but sometimes even touches of nature will not cut it.
Before you start worrying, we are here to tell you now that there is a way to redesign your bedroom to make the space look bigger than it actually is. Here are a couple of ways to do it:
First things first: Consider the layout
Think about how your bedroom is built first. One of the best ways to solve a space problem is to create a certain flow in your room. From the moment a person walks in, they will be prompted to walk towards where? A layout that subtly shows a person the circulation in the room makes it comfortable for them to navigate around, they would not even think the rooms is small in the first place.
Once you have an idea about the flow in the room, that is when you move furniture around. Consider angling large furniture like the wardrobe or even the bed itself, so that walking space can be bigger.
Let in natural light
Natural light always does wonders for a cramped space. Make sure that your room is getting in enough of it, or at least, that you are not blocking it with heavy curtains. If by any chance your bed sits right in front of the window, consider using see through headboards to still let light in.
Use paint with light and natural hues
Another way to make your room look bigger is to use light, natural hues of paint. If you have the option to re-paint your room, choose colours that are comfortable to the eyes, and makes the room feel airy and open. These colours are usually of the white, cream, and pale grey palette. While dark colours or unique aesthetic choices, they can make a space look small, so try to avoid using those in cramped spaces.
Put up wall shelves
Instead of putting in multiple shelves to hold your books or other stuff, try putting up shelves on the walls. This can save you room so that you can have a lot of space to move around.
Redesigning the room definitely needs a lot of planning and a bit of elbow grease to execute. But successfully making it look spacious is definitely worth all that effort.
