The peculiarity of the interior of a small bedroom is built on its limited space and your unlimited desire to have in it everything that is in the big bedroom. That's all. But, alas, you can not jump above your head, and you can not put much in a small one. This is possible only in the virtual space, on the views of the illusionist Emil Kio, or at the expense of certain design techniques for visual expansion. But you live in real space and are not even related to a famous illusionist. Therefore, perhaps, we will start with a visual increase of your small bedroom, so that later you can solve other questions on the design of its interior.
We increase space. . . visually
There are many receptions for the visual enlargement of small rooms. The main and most common and effective is the use of light colors in the surface finish. Therefore, the lining of walls and ceiling is done in neutral colors.
If you still doubt that the performance of the interior in dark tones will make your little bedroom even smaller (visually), you can see this by comparing this photo with the above. Besides this, it causes some depressing feeling. This situation is not very conducive to rest soul and body. Although, of course, it's a matter of taste.
However, it is not necessary to get too carried away with light tones. Too monotonous is the "landscape" of this bedroom, even in calm tones. And monotony very soon will cause you irritation, which in no way is unacceptable in the bedroom by its status. Therefore, experts recommend caution abundance of light colors. Everything should be within reasonable limits, and in the color range of the bedroom there must be other colors, at least as accents.
Costly, but very effective in the issue of visual expansion of the room, is a mirror wall. Perhaps this is not the most suitable device for most people. Because a person who can afford such a wall, can hardly "afford" himself to have such a small bedroom. But still, knowing about this option will not hurt, because facing the mirrors of a small surface is not such a costly affair. But the effect is striking.
In order to visually increase the space, it is recommended to use low furniture (bed, bedside tables). Together with long, almost from the ceiling, curtains, this technique will visually increase the height of your bedroom.
In this section of the article, we will consider the lighting of a bedroom as one of the methods of visual enlarging the space. The essence of this technique is that the bedroom lighting is carried out by hidden light sources built into the furniture or ceiling, and directed upwards.
The planning. We select and arrange furniture
Now, having finished with the "expansion" of your bedroom, we will deal with a more mundane task, namely, the selection and placement of furniture. There are many factors to consider here. Even the type of door to open it plays a significant role in the future interior of your bedroom-baby. For more details about the types and criteria for choosing doors, click here.
The bedroom is originally intended for rest, so this room should be separated from the rest of the apartment. The best option is to install sliding doors, which will help you maximize your precious space. But the usual, swinging doors, if properly planned, will not be a big hindrance to the arrangement of furniture.
Furniture in this case plays a decisive role, especially the bed. It is the main subject of the bedroom interior, especially the small one. Before you buy a bed in a small bedroom, you should think about its size and installation location. Of course, a large bed looks more attractive, but it "steals" a solid part of the square. In this case, the chance to feel yourself in free space for you will be rather illusive.
Using the same, for example, a single bed will allow you to additionally get some free space, real, and not visual. And this is your main task in decorating a small room. Of course, for a young family this is not very suitable. But what is suitable and what is not – you decide. The task of this article is to familiarize interested readers with the interior options of a small bedroom, while not missing any details.
There is a very original solution to the installation of the bed, even in the face of the most severe shortage of space in the apartment. By the way, this idea is not new. From ancient times in Russia, a place of rest was the space above the Russian stove, a black loft. Years go by, times change. But the idea itself has remained to this day, however, in a slightly different form.
The acute shortage of space gives rise to the problem of storing bed linen and bed linen. But the modern furniture industry has found a way out of it in the form of boxes, lockers, bedside tables built into the wall or into the bed. The result is a completely modern bedroom – a minimum of furniture and a maximum of space.
For a small bedroom, the built-in wardrobe with frosted glass doors will be a real godsend. Thanks to him, you will not only save space, but also increase space. Matt glass will create a certain blurriness of the interior, thereby increasing the visual room.
An excellent place to store things can be high, from floor to ceiling, cabinets. Relevant will be and modular furniture, which is made according to the size of your bedroom. Simultaneously with the storage of things, it can be used as a workplace. Furniture of double meaning is very much welcomed in a small room.
Very often the owners of small bedrooms forget about the space above the bedside tables. But in vain, it can be perfectly used for all sorts of shelves. Also, to save space, as a bedside table, a wall shelf is perfect.
In conclusion, I wanted to bring to you the opinions of experts, which is not recommended in a small bedroom:
- to use instead of a bed folding sofas. In this case, you win in the square, but lose in space. The high back of the sofa visually reduces the height. Again, the choice is yours, because these are only recommendations of design experts.
- make the ceiling a different level. This ceiling layout will negate all your efforts to increase space.
- it is useless to spend an already scarce space, cluttering it with unnecessary items and furniture. In such a bedroom, you will involuntarily feel like an elephant in a shop.
- use low-hanging chandeliers and lamps. Otherwise, all your attempts to increase the space of the room will be reduced to "no." In principle, in a small bedroom there are quite enough lamps on the bedside tables. Ceiling lighting can be arranged in the absence of windows in the bedroom, that is, natural light. Quite logical recommendation of specialists.
- to install large mirror surfaces on the side of the bed. These are the recommendations of psychologists who are concerned about possible psychological trauma in you or your family members. The best option would be to install such surfaces at the head of the bed.
We hope that this article has destroyed your opinion that a small bedroom is a verdict. The main thing is to seek and find a way out even from seemingly desperate situations. In this article, we have resulted only in a small fraction of those techniques that will certainly help you make a miracle with your "baby." And further, we hope, we will help you "sort out" with a more spacious bedroom. But this will be a different topic and other subtleties. Good luck to you!
