Whether you’ve just moved into a new home or want to redecorate your bedroom, organizing a small room is always a challenging task.

But you can make a small space look like it is bigger with the help of a few tricks.

The team behind lifestyle publication Bed wires recently shared their tips for making a small bedroom look bigger – including using art as a headboard and painting the walls in light colors.

1. Use light colors for walls and varied colors for furniture

When decorating a bedroom, it is essential to strategically plan what color the walls will be against the furniture.

Bed Threads recommends painting the walls, ceiling and window coverings in light shades to open up the room and fill the space with furniture in different colors to ensure the room is not too minimalist in style.

“If you have white bedroom walls, a simple white bedside table will fade into the background and not appear as a heavy visual block,” said expert Rory Carter.

This balancing act between not enough and too much white can make or break the style of the room.

2. Color coordination is key

Just like using light shades on the walls, coordinating colors is another handy tip when planning a room you want to look bigger.

“If your bedroom is well coordinated, your eye will naturally focus on that rather than a shortage of space,” Rory said.

By placing your bed on a high bed frame, you not only create extra storage space for sheets and clothing, but also make the floor look uncluttered.

“Thick bed bases are generally too heavy in smaller bedrooms and don’t make sense to you,” Rory explained.

4. Buy a flat woven rug for texture and style

A rug is always a great addition to any bedroom as it is perfect during the colder months and is also a stylish element.

More specifically, a flat-woven rug will stand out against a white-walled room, and the fabric isn’t as bulky compared to other materials, such as faux fur.

6. Use large artwork as a headboard

To create a sleeker look when redecorating, replace an ordinary headboard with a set of art prints.

This unique trick creates a focal point and makes the bedroom look bigger and less cluttered when using a large print.

“I replaced the headboard with a set of prints that had been waiting in my closet to be used, and my entire bedroom now feels longer and less cluttered,” Rory said.

Another creative trick to create the illusion of more space is to place a large mirror so that it reflects light (stock image)

6. Mirror a window to reflect light

Another unique way to create the illusion of more space is to place a large mirror so that it reflects light.

“The best way to place a mirror is to place it on a wall opposite a window to create the effect of another opening,” Rory said.

This is a good tip if you have an extremely small room, because it feels and looks like you have double the space.
