11 Things You Didn't Think You Can Fit Into a Small Bedroom

While it’s interesting to check at photos of bedrooms complete with sitting areas, fireplaces, large armoires and much more, the truth is that most people sleeping in much tighter areas. Personally, I love a small, cozy bedroom — it increases the snuggled-up feeling. But often we need a piece of luxury to decide on that practicality within our modestly sized bedrooms, even though there is barely room for a mattress.

1. A chandelier. So long as you fulfill code and put it so that you won’t be bonking your head, an elegant light fixture can really make a small bedroom feel special. Make sure to place it on a darker so which it is possible to adjust the mood.

2. Plants. using a custom living wall program, these designers were able to bring in life on the headboard wall.

3. Double beds. These beds are U.K. single beds, which can be approximately 35 inches wide, as opposed to American twin beds, that can be usually 39 inches broad. Those precious extra 8 inches leave a comfortable space between them both. Also worth noting is the smart reading-light strategy — sconces mounted to the wall store space.

4. Room to stash plenty of reading material that is bedside. There is ample room for dozens of books and magazines within this narrow sack, thanks to smart built-ins tucked beneath the headboard. Notice the nightstand surfaces and cabinets built in as well.

5. Privacy. Occasionally a bedroom is so shallow a mattress barely matches between the walls, and there is no clearance to get a door to fold. A pocket door allows plenty of room to close off the space, even though the end of the mattress is very near the opening.

6. Yards and yards of textiles. The long drapes within this area add elegance, pattern and colour while providing privacy. The room is actually made by them.

7. A massive statement piece of art. Together with the walls shot up by convenient shelves, a window and a upholstered headboard, you’d think there wouldn’t be room for a major piece of art. But designer Jen Chu cleverly adorned this plastic roller colour with a message stuck on with touch paper letters. (Incidentally, this quote is from Apocalypse Now.)

8. An office. This mattress flips up into the cabinet, leaving plenty of room to get work done at the desk throughout the day.

9. A TV. If you love to catch up on your own DVR before bedtime, you will find smart ways to tuck in a screen. This TV screen may be tucked right into the ceiling when not in use.


10. Deep drawers. Precious drawers beneath these beds offer plenty of space for clothes, linens and other items.

11. The Lincoln Memorial. OK, not literally the Lincoln Museum; let us create that “a mural.” You shouldn’t give up on a large design element just because a space is tight. In fact, a small room is among the greatest places to create a big statement. The wallpaper behind this mattress is a picture of the large stately columns of the Lincoln Memorial.
