There is nowhere more important than your bedroom. This needs to be a space where you feel completely relaxed and happy as this will give you a place to unwind but it will also be vital for making sure that you can get enough sleep each night, which is important for both your physical and mental health. Space can be a problem in the bedroom, though, and a cramped space can be difficult to unwind in, it can also negatively impact your mental health.
With this in mind, here are a few ways that you can make the most out of a small space, and help you feel better in the meantime.
Cut Back to Basics
First, you should remove anything from the bedroom which should not be there. It is common for people to have all kinds in their bedroom, but really this is a space that should be used for sleeping. This means that the key items that are needed are a bed, bedside table, wardrobe, drawers and a mirror. If you keep your room minimalist, it will be easier to keep tidy and it can help you to feel calmer. It will also be easier to find things that you need.
Use Fitted Sliding Wardrobes
Following this, one of the bulkiest items in the bedroom is the wardrobe but also one which is vital. Fitted sliding wardrobes from places like Hammonds are an excellent solution because they will become part of the room and provide you with plenty of space to keep your clothes and other storage. It will also keep everything hidden away, giving the illusion that your room is bigger than it really is. Using the space in the most effective way will give you so much more storage and help you to keep track of everything you own, therefore you won’t end up buying new things that you already have, in turn saving you money.
Similarly, you will want to do all that you can to reduce clutter in this space as this can make it feel much smaller and add stress. This will involve having smart storage solutions and making sure that you keep the space neat and tidy at all times. There is no better feeling than coming home to a tidy room, if you walk in and the whole room is cluttered up it can feel very overbearing and stressful, the last thing you want after a long day.
Bring in Lots of Light
Light can help any space to look and feel much bigger and this means that it can work wonders in a small bedroom. You will want to maximize natural light here, which you can do by making sure the windows are unobstructed, but still with good curtains, using light colours on the walls and painting the walls a light shade, a fresh coat of paint always makes a room feel bright and fresh as well. Natural light will also help you wake up in the morning, it will reset your natural circadian rhythms leaving you feeling more refreshed and alert during the day.
Try a New Layout
It is amazing the difference that a different layout can have in terms of how the room both looks and feels. Having space on either side of the bed instead of having it pushed up to a wall can actually make the room feel much bigger and can create symmetry. It can end up feeling like an entirely new room. You could even go as far as to switch which room is your bedroom, if you have the space and the energy of course. This will give your whole house a new and fresh feeling, and can give you a chance to clean those bits you rarely do, like down the back of the head board.
Hopefully, these tips will help you to make improvements to your bedroom and make a small room look and feel much bigger. The bedroom is an incredibly important space and making improvements could impair your life in a number of different ways.
