Remember the thumb rule of managing the small room, less is more. There is no need to cramp up the space with lots of furniture or furniture that are not in proportion to the size of the room or with stuffs which you no longer use. Clear up the space and keep it clean. Keep the clothes folded and organized in the cupboards, shoes in the rack, and accessories in its designated place. In short, keep only the things that are necessary for the room and de-clutter the room to make it look and feel spacious.

​2. Get the most out of space for storage

Make the most of the wall space even if it means going up vertically right up to the ceiling and using every wall for storage; use it. In small room you need storage to keep it clutter-free. Show your creativity design the furniture to fit into the space in such a way that it becomes the part of the room. A cabinet with sliding doors and bed with storage is a boon in a small room.

​3. Smartness of multifunctional furniture

Think smart and make more than one use of the furniture you have in your bedroom. You can think of having a sofa cum bed instead of sofa and bed in the bedroom making it cramped. If you don’t need a sofa in bedroom instead you require more storage space which is comfortable to use then you may think of collapsible bed cum cupboard like here. Pull down to use the bed and push up to make it a cupboard. What an idea!

​4. Concealed on the wall




The clean and sleek finishing of the cabinets concealing the wall and making space for the entertainment units too to fit into it leaving the rest of the space free works well in small bedroom. You can have the entertainment unit too at no extra space. Use the space near the window which otherwise goes wasted. Make your own design for it or take inspiration from here and design it so that you can use it for some quite ‘me’ time with yourself.

​5. All eyes on me

Make the headboard of the bed so stunning that the room looks regal. Here the conical headboard and then the detailing over it on the wall trick the mind to believe that the room is big and spacious.

​6. Mirror, creating an illusion




Mirror, it is the simplest and most used trick to make the small space look and feel double the size it actually is. In a small room, convert the cabinet doors into the mirror of the room and double up the space without wasting an inch.

​7. Flood the room with natural light

Large window which floods the room with ample light will make the room feel bigger and brighter. The window will also bring freshness right inside your room.

​8. Pristine touch of white

White is the perfect colour for a small space since it reflects all the light to make the room feel spacious and pure. However, if you love colours and don’t want your room to be all white, you can opt for pastel shades of your choice. Or be more adventurous and draw graffiti on the wall to add colour to your room.

9. Distract to attract

In a small room, especially if it belongs to the children of the home, be generous in creating distraction to make it attractive. Get the cupboard doors painted, let the curtains sing and make the wall dazzle so that the small dimension of room is barely noted.
