Even if your bedroom is limited on space you can still make it feel spacious. The trick to doing this is to utilize organization tools such as Mill Park Storage to make the most out of the space that you have. It can be challenging to fit everything that you need, want, and use into your small bedroom but if you have the right storage solutions, you can fit everything that you need into your bedroom without it looking cluttered or feeling cramped.
Use 2-in-1 furniture
By adding wall shelves, hanging artwork or bulletin board, you can keep things that you use often more central while still keeping it out of the way. You can also use a fold up bed or a day bed that transforms into a couch during the day to utilize your space wisely. You should also choose the color of the paint that you will use on the walls and ceiling carefully as well. The color of a room can greatly affect the feeling of the size of the room. Dark colors tend to make a room feel smaller while bright colors tend to open up a room and will make it feel bigger than it really is.
Keep your Room well-lit
Having plenty of light will also help a room to feel bigger. If you do not have natural light because there are no windows you can always add your own lighting. Hanging lamps are a great option for a small space because it won’t take up any surface space such as on a desk or on the floor. It will give you the light that you need without taking up any extra room.
A few extra tips
You can reduce the size of your bed to free up some extra space. Mirrors are another way that you can open up a small space. Place a large mirror on one wall to make your room look as if it is twice as big. If you have a closet with doors on it, you can remove them to make it more accessible and to make the room look bigger. You can then replace the doors with a curtain rod and a fun, patterned shower curtain. It is fairly cheap, trendy and will make the room look much bigger.
Use thin, wire hangers to hang up your clothes. They will take up less room than big, bulky wooden hangers and will make your budget go farther too since they are cheaper. You can use the space under your bed to store things such as extra blankets or clothes that you use more frequently but not enough to have out all of the time. They will be out of the way but yet accessible when you want to grab an extra blanket on a chilly night.
You can also make your room seem bigger with bright-colored curtains and bedding. When you hang up your curtains, you should hang them up higher than where your window begins to give the impression that your windows are bigger. It’s the little details that can really make all the difference and expand the space of your room visually.
Utilize self storage
You don’t always use everything all of the time, so you need to store it somewhere. Mill Park Storage is the perfect solution for your storage needs. There is no reason to have to live in a crowded or cluttered living space when you can store it elsewhere. Then, when you need to get something you can simply pull it out of storage.
Sometimes even when you have already followed all of the small-space saving tips you still have too many things for the size of your home. That is where extra storage space comes into play. Mill Park Storage is perfect for storing things that you don’t want to have to replace every year such as seasonal decorations, extra paint, or anything else that you don’t want to toss simply because your living space is on the small side.
