Lighten Up the Space

Having enough light doesn’t just brighten up the room. It can also create the illusion of space. If you can, let as much natural light in your bedroom as possible. This is a great way to wake you up naturally in the morning as the sun comes up.


As for lighting the room with lamps, choose ones that are not only functional but also decorative. There are so many styles available today that you can certainly find ones that will suit your taste as well as complement your bedroom. 


Experiment with Wallpapers

Wallpapers can actually do wonders for your bedroom. It is affordable and not that complicated to install. The trick in using wallpapers to improve the bedroom is to choose subtle patterns and not those that are too overwhelming.


Such designs can cause the space to feel cramped because of having too many visual stimuli. Wallpapers with subtle patterns will charm the space while adding dimension. It’s a good trick to make the bedroom more spacious.


Decorate with Plants

Plants are a very affordable decoration for your bedroom. They serve so many functions while making your room feel more relaxing. Indoor plants will help in purifying the air inside the room. It will also bring the outdoors in and you’ll feel closer to nature.


The greens will help your eyes relax. Plants are also nice because you have something to take care of and water regularly. If you don’t have a pet or if you’re not allowed to keep one, having some plants in your bedroom will do for the moment.


Place Large Mirrors

This is another trick that will make your bedroom look big. Put up mirrors on your walls. If you can fill a whole wall with mirrors or a big one, that would be fantastic. It will definitely open up the area. But don’t worry if you can’t devote a whole wall for a big mirror.


What you can do instead is that rather than putting up artworks on the walls, place mirrors. These will make the bedroom feel airy. Of course, you can still devote a wall for your gallery; which leads us to the next tip.


Devote Space for a Gallery Wall

Even if your bedroom is small, you should still allow your personality to be expressed in that space. Devote some wall space so you can display fun and sentimental photos in interesting frames. This way, you can really make your bedroom your own.


A plus is that doing this won’t take up any space since you’ll be working on your bedroom wall. But do keep in mind to carefully curate what you’ll be displaying so that they are visually pleasing and not chaotic to look at. Pick a theme that will bring everything together. 


Get Side Tables

You can forego the television console or nightstand. Instead, find one or two small-sized bedside tables. The tables can offer more space for your things, especially ones that you need to put aside before you sleep. It can be your favorite books, your reading glasses, a glass of water, etc.


You can also put your phone chargers in the drawers of your bedside table for easy access. You’ll never have trouble losing them and wasting time trying to find where you last placed them. Bedside tables are very functional and can hide away little things that would otherwise be lying around in your bedroom.  


Choose Cool Colors for Your Sheets

Your bed is the centerpiece of your bedroom. You would want it to not just be comfortable but also inviting and calming when you look at it. When you’re shopping for sheets for your bed, pick those with cool colors.  This is so that your eyes and body will feel relaxed when you see your bed.


Apart from the color, make sure that the material is comfortable so that you’ll have a wonderful night’s sleep every time. It can be tempting to go for the cheaper bed sheets. But most of those low quality sheets’ colors fade after a few washes. Also, they may not be so soft. You’d want something that will help to recharge you throughout the night.
