Go For White

If you want your bedroom to be a practical space that looks much bigger than it really is, then stick to white as the basis of your palette. Sheets, walls, pillows, whatever you can think of. But don’t make the entire bedroom white; that will make it look too sterile and not fun. Add a few textures and softer colors to add some personality. Add a lot of lights too for some good ambient lighting at night. And there’s no better place to start than getting a white mattress. Check out this collection to get started.

Put Your Bed in the Corner

You can maximize the space in your bedroom by placing your bed in the corner against two walls. This not only makes getting into bed that much cozier but it gives you more floor space to work with so that you can add more accessories to the room. Add a lamp in the corner behind the bed so that you can still read at night and having the lighting you need without the lamp taking up more space.


Trim down your bedroom essentials down to the basics. By keeping very few things in your bedroom, it will look a lot less cluttered. Go for bold colors and patterns in simple geometric shapes to add some depth to the room. Add as much storage as you can so that you can keep everything in its place so that it’s not in a pile on your floor. There are some great minimalism bedroom tips to get you started if you’re stuck.

Slim Headboard and Bedframes

Maximizing as much space as you can get in your bedroom is key; you can do this by also investing in a small frame and headboard for your bed. Wood or metal, the thinner the better, as long as it can support the weight of your mattress. That will give you more space around your bed to include accessories and decorations to really spruce up the area.

Working Magic With Mirrors

The strategic placement of mirrors around the room can make space feel larger than it really is. Angling a mirror across from some windows will also reflect some light around the room for better ambient lighting. What’s great about the mirror idea is that you can get several sizes and shapes of mirrors to play with until you have the right look you want. There’s really no right or wrong way to do it, as long as the placement actually works to open up space.

While the rest of your home is getting a makeover, don’t leave your bedroom out. It may be a space that none of your guests see, but you want it to be comfortable when you retire to it for the night. You also want it to be a reflection of your personality and provide you with the peace of mind you truly deserve.
