Transformative Bedroom Ideas | General

When it comes to your bedroom, it’s not the size of the space that matters — it’s how you use the space that counts. A less is more approach will imbue a sense of space and calm, especially when you’re looking to create a sanctuary of rest and relaxation. Regardless of the area you’re working with, there are a few key considerations when it comes to designing a bedroom that is stylish, comfortable and conducive to recharging your body, mind and mood.



  1. Declutter: The first step is to get rid of anything you don't need or use regularly. Clutter takes up valuable space and makes a room feel smaller. Be ruthless in assessing what you truly need and donate or sell items you no longer use.
  2. Choose the Right Furniture:
    • Multipurpose Furniture: Opt for furniture pieces that serve multiple functions. For example, a bed with built-in storage drawers or a sofa bed for guests.
    • Vertical Storage: Use tall bookshelves or wardrobes to utilize vertical space, leaving more floor space open.
    • Floating Furniture: Consider wall-mounted shelves, nightstands, and desks to free up floor space and create a more open feel.
  3. Under-Bed Storage: Use the space under your bed for storage. You can find bed frames with built-in drawers or use storage containers designed to fit under the bed.
  4. Utilize Wall Space:
    • Shelves and Hooks: Install shelves and hooks on the walls to store books, decor, and accessories without taking up floor space.
    • Floating Desks: If you need a workspace, consider a wall-mounted desk that can be folded up when not in use.
  5. Optimize Closet Space:
    • Organizers: Use closet organizers like shelves, hanging racks, and storage bins to maximize the use of your closet.
    • Slim Hangers: Use slim hangers to save space and make your closet feel more organized.
  6. Mirrors: Mirrors can create an illusion of more space by reflecting light and making the room appear larger. Consider a full-length mirror or mirrored closet doors.
  7. Color and Lighting:
    • Light Colors: Light-colored walls and furniture can make a room feel more open and airy.
    • Natural Light: Allow as much natural light as possible into the room. Use sheer curtains to let light in while maintaining privacy.
    • Good Lighting: Use well-placed lighting to eliminate dark corners and make the room feel more inviting.
  8. Use Baskets and Bins: Use decorative baskets and bins to keep items organized and out of sight. These can be placed on shelves, in closets, or under furniture.
  9. Keep It Simple: Avoid overly bulky or ornate furniture that can make the room feel cramped. Opt for sleek, streamlined designs.
  10. Furniture Placement: Experiment with different furniture layouts to find the one that maximizes floor space and flow. Avoid blocking pathways or creating dead spaces.
  11. Multifunctional Decor: Choose decor items that serve a purpose, like a decorative ladder that can also be used to hang clothes or blankets.
  12. Minimize:
    • Decor: Use a few well-chosen decor pieces rather than filling the room with numerous small items that can make the space feel cluttered.
    • Furniture: Only include essential furniture pieces to avoid overcrowding.



Remember that the key to making the most of your bedroom space is to think creatively and make intentional choices that suit your lifestyle and preferences. Regularly reassess and adjust your organization strategies as your needs change over time.
