While this can be much cheaper, it also means that living space is limited. There are ways to work around it, though. With the right planning, design and furniture, you can maximise the space you have.
In this article, we’ll give you five space-saving bedroom design techniques to make your room feel bigger.
Our Favourite Space-Saving Bedroom Hacks
Make the most of your space with these tips.
1. Bunk Beds
Twin or double beds can take up a lot of space, and when you don’t have that luxury, you have to go for something different. Thankfully, there are plenty of different bed styles that are more suitable for tiny rooms.
One of them is a sofa bed. It makes a versatile and convenient addition to any bedroom, as it can be simply folded out at night, then put back together in the morning.
You could also go for a Murphy bed, which is a pull-down bed hinged to a wall or cabinet. This allows you to convert your bedroom into an office, playroom, or whatever you please in one swift movement.
If your room is for two, bunks beds might be a better option. Having the two beds stacked on top of each other leaves more floor space for you to use.
2. Floating Shelves
If you don’t have room for a bedside table or cabinet, put some floating shelves onto the wall into a corner instead.
That will give you a place to set things down without crowding the room. To save even more space, have a wall-mounted light, too. This means you won’t have to take up space with a lamp on the table.
If you mount your shelves high up on the wall, it will make your room look even bigger. That way, you can maximise your floor space.
3. An Open Closet
Opening and closing closet doors can be difficult when space is limited.
That’s why open closets are best for small rooms. Just remove the doors, and your space will immediately open up.
If that looks too cluttered and untidy for you, you could consider sliding doors.
4. Combine Seating with Storage
When space is tight, you have to get creative with your storage space. Combine is with your seating for
Benches and ottomans are a stylish way to store and conceal items without compromising your floor space. You can just open them up and put whatever you need inside. Your guests will hardly notice!
5. A Floating Desk
Floating desks are mounted to the wall, eliminating the need for legs or any floor fixings.
This visually opens up the space much more. It also provides more storage space, as you can slide things underneath them if you like.
