It is advisable to go for queen size bed instead of king size so that you can save space. Platform beds are also a good choice. They are low in height and make the room look bigger.

2.The shades of wall color also play a significant role in bedroom. For small bedrooms, light and stimulating colors should be used. Deep shades should be completely avoided as they make the space look compact. Try to stick to a single shade and use the same for your doors and moldings as more colors impart a crowded look. Use more of creams and white for a refreshing look.

3.The use of furniture in small bedrooms should be limited. Try to select those pieces that can be mounted on the walls. For instance, select under bed storage instead of a closet or a wall mounted shelf in place of side table.

Blinds and light curtains are the best selections.

5.Lightning is known to a vital aspect of overall house decoration but its significance is known to increase in small bedroom.  Select gentle and soft lightning and glaring lights are a complete “no”. The placement of lights should be close to the bed as they shall make the place look bigger. Do not use standing lampshades and instead go for wall mounted lamps. You may also use a mirror opposite to the source of natural light so that an illusion of space is created.
