From big city flats to vintage home layouts, modern space downsizing requires design that expands the possibilities of small. Therefore, if your bedroom is in need of a graceful makeover yet you fear you don’t have enough legroom to work with, then you’ve come to the right place! Because we are here to prove that small can, indeed, by super stylish.
When it comes to modern and luxurious design ideas, various sources claim that there needs to be a sitting zone, a small office, or a king-size bed in your bedroom. But remember one thing: the main aim of any bedroom is to provide a soothing space where one can rest and recharge. And you don’t require a lot of legroom to achieve that.
Fortunately, there exist various decorating tips for small bedrooms. Take furniture, for example. Never opt for the biggest bed in the store, however luxurious it may seem. Do you really want that tiny bedroom to look and feel even more cramped? Rather go with one that flaunts a small stature, like a slim iron design with a transparent headboard and no footboard. Other tried-and-tested tips include:
• Choosing a hanging nightstand as opposed to a full-blown wardrobe
• Mounting bedside lighting
• Going with a light and bright colour scheme
• Adding horizontal patterns / textures to the walls to make the room appear wider than it is
• Investing in a multi-functional bed (such as built-in storage compartments)
• Placing your bed in front of the window to maximise floor space
• Adding more or bigger mirrors to help reflect the light.
These decorating tricks, and then some, are certainly what our 10 examples below have used – all styled up by professionals in the industry, of course!

And those slim bedside tables (with their shiny steel surfaces to help reflect light around the room) don't hurt either.
homify hint: stacked / bunk beds are worth the investment!
And the other thing this bedroom does right is its commitment to very few decorations.
It can draw the attention away from the limited legroom. Just be sure that your accent wall’s colour is repeated (such as the curtains or in the rug) to make the design flow.
