Life-size scenic art

Do you find too many plain things boring? Make it dramatic by adding a big piece of art. It is also visually appealing to see something fun than a heavy furniture piece when you enter the room. If you have a small bedroom, picking up a bigger painting will be a smart act. Disseminating too many small painting or prints over the wall will make the room more congested.

Go neutral

If you want to make your room look bigger, go for monochromatic colors or lighter shades on your walls. Try to keep your furniture design or color sync in with your wall paint. You can opt for pastel colors which look classy and are also soothing to the eyes.

With lighter color walls, you also need neutral color on flooring. In case, you already have bold shades or dark wood flooring and have no plans to replace it, you can go with lighter color rugs or carpets. Replace as much flooring space as you can with small prints and plain color rugs.

It’s the oldest design trick. Mirrors will make your space feel larger, lighter, and airier. The illusion of the space makes it look bigger than it is in reality. It also bounces light around the room, making the room brighter. Howbeit, you have to be careful while selecting the size of the mirror and the place where you are going to put it. For example, don’t turn your bedroom into a mirror house by adding it everywhere, just select one wall and cover it with the mirror or a sliding closet door.

Utilize vertical space

You don’t have to display everything. To much clutter in the room makes it look untidy and small. So, you can build cabinets above your cupboard, desk or bed for getting extra storage space. It will use under-utilized open space of walls and make the room feel lighter. You can hoard there your rare or less utilized things.

Hence, making a small bedroom look immense is not a big deal! All that you need to do is just choose the right ways. The aforementioned tricks can certainly be some of them.
