Whether it’s a bedroom space in a studio, a room in the attic or a room with modest dimensions, a small room can be complex. Which furniture to choose, what storage space to create, which decor to provide? We give you 5 unstoppable tips!
– Choosing suitable furniture
– Optimize storage space
– Opt for clear colors
– Bet on the light
– Install a mirror
1. Choosing suitable furniture
The successful layout of a very small room starts with the choice of furniture. To leave enough room to circulate easily, one goes to furniture adapted to the volume of the room. Better to provide a clean and minimalist decor, which has the advantage of airing spaces, rather than opting for a style of rich decor (such as the flea market or country for example). We avoid too big beds and we eventually choose an elevated version or mezzanine to save space.
2. Optimize space for storage space
To avoid cluttering the floor, as long as the ceiling allows it, consider using the entire height and width of the room with storage space. For example, you can frame the custom-made high cabinet bed, make a headboard with shelves, or stack boxes on a cabinet to save space.
3. Opting for light colors
Some people would tend to apply dark colors to the wall to help them fall asleep. But in a very small room, the dark paint would only reinforce the feeling of lack of space. On the contrary, prefer light colors, pastels in tune with the times, or even the total white look to give more volume and brightness to the room.
4. Betting on light
A small, well-lit room will immediately appear larger, provided you choose suitable lighting models. The ceiling light, for example, will harmoniously diffuse the light throughout the room rather than a halogen, directed towards the ceiling, which will only compact it. We have several sources of light in the room, on the bedside tables if the place allows it or applies it.
5. Install a mirror
The mirror illuminates the room by reflecting the light and, by optical illusion, significantly enlarges the spaces. It is preferably chosen large, dressing a wall or the doors of a wardrobe, so that the space takes immediately another dimension!
