Tiny homes are all the rage but the trick I think is to give the illusion of space. The easiest to realise perhaps is the bedroom, a room where cosy is an advantage. Though having said that the bedroom does need to be multifunctional – perhaps to cater for a couple, or a playroom, dressing room, siblings, study and sometimes a dog!
These are some tiny bedrooms done well. What’s key is maximising space so every corner utilised with hidden storage – think tall rather than long and definitely make the most of the features you have. See what you think, could you have sweet dreams in any of these little spaces?
1) What a clever room. It uses stripes to add width and creates a space that is quite grown up and sophisticated. Don’t be afraid to use large pieces of furniture, but make them work for you.
2) This room is so charming, the purple painted wood, large fireplace and stacked books look so inviting. Why this room works is the continuity of colour, a bright window and using the full height of the room.
3) Here we have a children’s room that could easily work as a child matures. Plenty of white bounces the light around and touches like a little bedside table actually help this room look spacious.
4) This sophisticated small space is really clever. Helped by a giant window, some classy decor, a tented ceiling and pinstripe walls. Here they have also maximised the space with shelves. A great reading nook day-bed come night-time hideaway.
5) I love the clouds! This would make a great teen room. If you have a narrow space make it work for you with a built in bed and handy storage.
6) Wow this is minuscule living! Perfect if you are the kind of person who spends more on books then dresses.
7) Just to prove that minimal white is not the only way to go, be bold and wallpaper with purpose! Adding in the stripes and sticking to just two colours this room is relaxing rather than migraine-making.
8) Uber-smart, how about a raised bed? You could be on top of the world with this bedroom and I think the lighting helps to make this an interesting space rather than a dark cave.
9) Keeping the colours to black and white this little room rocks casual cool. A mix of patterns, a clever light and makeshift bedside table are cleverly fitted in this small space.
10) Finally a kids room that really has interest. Dinosaur door handles on cupboards, built in desk and a simple colour palette, this interior works.
With a small room there is actually so much scope. It is just a case of being smart with what you have and I think if you decorate a small space purposefully it can be the jewel in your home crown.
