Patterned blanket and pillow sheets are cool ideas. Another focal point for small bedroom is likely the window. To avoid of having two focal points in such small space, you can place your bed next to window, so they both can blend beautifully or you can choose to dress up one of them; give your bed a stunning bed linen or dress your window with statement curtain.

In small bedroom, every inch is valuable. You can use free space to store your belongings. You can keep luggage under your bed, put boxes on the floor to keep shoes or other stuff. You also can use chest`s drawer to store small things like watch, jewelries, etc. You can install floating shelves as another storage options.

Attached bookshelf on the wall

This tips is always the most favorite one. Attached bookshelf on the wall does save a lot of space in your tiny bedroom and use your walls instead.

Buy furnitures with a lot of storages

Have you ever thought of hidden bedroom as the solution? This furniture combines bed, cupboard, desk, and wardrobe. You just need to lift your bed when you are not in your room and pull it off when you are going to sleep.

Step 5 : Mirror to make it wider

You can fool your room to be wider with mirror. It creates a bigger size from the actual size. Put your mirror on the wall where people stare most of the time. If I can say, in the middle of the room. It feels like you have another space on the other side of your room.

I like that bed frame with lots of drawers and storage space. Maybe when we get to upgrade our bedroom, we will have that.
