How to design a small bedroom?
Often the bedroom not only performs its main function, but also serves as a dressing room, and sometimes even as an office. In this case, the design of a small bedroom with their own hands can turn into a rather complicated task. The room seems too narrow, too long, or simply very small. However, a bedroom of any shape can be decorated comfortably and stylishly, competently having thought over furniture, decoration and décor during repairs.
If we talk about styles, then the best choice for the interior of a small bedroom would be minimalism, high-tech or Japanese style. Cozy and comfortable bedroom will turn out in the style of country, Provence or classic. A variety of ideas can be gleaned from the photos of the finished bedroom interiors.

Colors and finishes
Light shades visually increase the space and add light. Therefore, making out the interior of a small bedroom, as the main color definitely should not use dark or too bright saturated colors. This is especially true of the walls and ceiling.
However, the design of a small bedroom is quite possible to create contrasts. For example, dark wood furniture on a background of light wallpaper and bright colorful accessories and decor. In textiles and wall decoration should avoid a large catchy pattern, as it attracts too much attention. It is better to choose a plain wallpaper or decorative plaster.
If the flooring is used flooring or parquet, it should be laid diagonally. This technique allows you to visually expand the room. The same purpose will serve the horizontal lines of the unobtrusive pattern on the wallpaper.
The design of a narrow bedroom may include a contrasting finish to one of the far walls. This technique will “move” it closer, thereby visually bringing the shape of the room to the square. You can use not only bright color, but also a colorful print. He also gives the interior dynamics.
An unusual way to visually add square meters to a small bedroom during renovation is to use photo wallpapers depicting the city, nature, the sea shore, and so on. The main thing is to present the perspective and depth in the picture; this will make the bedroom longer. Various ideas for finishing small rooms can be found in the photo on the Internet.
Tip: painting the walls and the ceiling in one color visually makes the borders between them less visible and increases the size of the room.
The interior of a small bedroom should include only the most necessary pieces of furniture. Most of the space, as a rule, takes the bed. For her when repairing it is necessary to determine the place in the first place. If possible, it is better to make the cupboard built-in with sliding doors or a corner. In any case, it should be as roomy as possible, and mirrored doors will help to visually enlarge the space of the room.
The furniture should be functional: the bed should have drawers for linen, a pouf, if it is, can also be suitable for storage inside things. It is good if during the repair the racks or cabinets can be positioned so that the bed is in a niche - this will add intimacy and comfort. The niche behind the headboard can be mirrored, which visually increases the depth of the bedroom.
It is impractical to place an entire bedroom set in a cramped room, but the bed and the closet can be supplemented with a bedside table and a compact pouf. By design it is better to prefer furniture with a simple line geometry, without an abundance of decor. To arrange furniture, making repairs, you need as rational as possible, without leaving non-functional empty spaces.

Another technique that is suitable for small rooms is a distraction from the size of the room. For example, with the help of a large poster, paintings, photographs or panels, made with your own hands, above the bed. It will attract the eye, and the dimensions of the bedroom recede into the background. You can arrange on the wall, even a small photo gallery.
Reflecting surfaces should become obligatory elements of any small room. You can make mirror cabinet doors, hang on the wall one large mirror or a composition of several mirrors.

In the fight for free space, it is important to get rid of all unnecessary. So, things like souvenirs or cosmetics are best kept in beautiful decorative boxes or baskets that are easy to make even with your own hands. On the Internet you can find a lot of photos of the interiors of small bedrooms, which will serve as an inspiring example for your own renovation.
