Designing a small bedroom can be overwhelming and downright frustrating, but we’re here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be. Check out our favorite tips and tricks, and see which solutions work best for your small space.

1: Let your ceiling make a statement.

Gold polka dots draw the eye upward, elevating the appearance of the ceiling in this small bedroom. A patterned ceiling may work for you if your bedroom has sloped ceilings or an odd shape.


2: Opt for a hanging nightstand.

If your bed fits in a tight nook, free up valuable floor space with a hanging nightstand.


3: Or DIY a nightstand to fit your space.

Finding furniture to fit a small space can be difficult. Instead of spending hours searching for a mini nightstand, make your own with an old or unused table.


4: Mount your bedside lighting.

If you’re working with teeny-tiny nightstands — or no nightstands at all — consider mounting lights or lamps to the wall.


5: Install a Murphy bed.

Freeing up floor space in the blink of an eye, a Murphy bed is an age-old solution for a small space.
6: Go bright and all white.

An all-white color palette creates a fresh, bright atmosphere that helps small spaces feel larger. Mix soft creams and off-whites to add warmth.
7: Or go bold with color.

But — if you love color, go for it! Bold hues and attention-grabbing patterns can actually help distract from the small size of a space.
8: Utilize every square inch of space.
Under-Bed Storage Drawers
Under-the-bed storage is key in a small bedroom. Consider some of these options: wheeled boxes, drawers, locked boxes, storage bags or shoe organizers.
9: Add horizontal wood planks to the walls.

Horizontal wood planking visually tricks the eye in this bedroom, making the room appear wider than it is. This might be the right choice for you if your room lacks architectural interest … or if you’re a Fixer Upper fan (shiplap, anyone?).
10: Or stripe your walls.

If wood planking isn’t your thing, painted or wallpapered stripes achieve the same visual effect.
11: Get a bedside C-table for instant workspace.

If you need workspace but have no room for a desk, buy a C-shaped table that will stash your laptop and tuck underneath the bed when not in use.

12: Use a desk as a nightstand.

Instead of cramming your space full of furniture, opt for pieces that serve multiple purposes, like this desk that also works as a nightstand.


13: Display accessories as decor.

14: Reflect light with mirrors.
