It usually happens that if your apartment is small, so will most of the rooms that make it up. Learning to decorate small flats has become a necessity for everyone who lives in this century since its construction has been the trend of recent years. Therefore, knowing how to apply simple tricks when decorating, that make space gain visually, is important to change the perception of that space.
But what are they? For in the case of decorating small bedrooms these 9 ideas are the key:
- Let the natural light get in
You have to take full advantage of the natural light of the window, so you should put curtains a little thick, clear, and translucent. During sunny hours, all the light that can enter, will expand your room.
And speaking of curtains, another trick is to hang the curtains from the ceiling as it will give the effect that the walls are higher.
- Walls in light tones
It is no secret that light tones enlarge and dark tones dwarf. So you know: betting on white – or any color with that tonality, such as beiges, cakes or creams – is perfect to give a feeling of spaciousness in the bedroom.
If you prefer to use wallpaper with some detail, the horizontal stripes are ideal, they will widen the space. Remember that the verticals are perfect for low ceilings. As for the ceiling, the same thing happens as with the walls, it is best to paint it white. And, above all, never opt for colors darker than the walls because you will get the opposite, dwarf your bedroom even more.
- Elements, the just
In a small room, the clearer the walls, corners and passage areas are, the better. Decorate your bedroom (almost) in a minimalist key: use few furniture, the necessary, and do not saturate the walls of paintings and shelves.
- The mirrors are a great ally
The trick of the mirror is perfect, a resource that never fails and that also never goes out of style. Its role is both functional and decorative and help to double the stay making it look bigger and also multiply the light.
- Versatile and custom furniture
Use light furniture, not very large and clear tones. Take advantage of the spaces with tables and shelves corner, wardrobes and furniture that may have more than one utility.
To gain storage space, you can also raise the bed and take advantage of the whole under part to create more cabinets, drawers, or even to place the desk. In these spaces, made-to-measure furniture is the best option.
- Sliding doors always
To occupy the minimum space, the main door, as well as the window and cupboards should be sliding. In this way they will not hinder, or subtract or need space when opening them. And – this is a trick to decorate small rooms expert level – one of the sliding doors of the closet can be for the mirror.
- Indirect lighting
It is key to gain amplitude, being very important to choose a suitable light. Use bulky lamps, track lights or wall sconces. Indirect light generates a greater sense of space than direct light and you can generate it with an infinity of models and styles.
- The order is fundamental
In a small space, the order is basic, that is why the storage furniture is essential. In addition, you must create extra spaces to store your things with baskets, decorative trunks, boxes, etc., if they fit and without abuse. The objective is that they are not in the middle and they can reduce physical and visual space.
- The importance of a focal piece
To distract the perception, create a point that monopolizes the glances upon entering the room. That is, give importance to a painting, vinyl, an interior plant, a photograph… Some piece that is in the first thing you look at, that captures all the attention and, at the same time, serves to disguise the small size of your bedroom.
