Declutter & Decorate

The most basic way to optimize the space in a small room is, without a doubt, to declutter. The more you declutter, the more space you have to add your favorite decorative pieces. You can save space by incorporating savvy furniture choices like ottomans that have built-in storage. Store things like blankets, out of season clothes, pillows, books, shoes, remote controls, or other small items to keep them out of sight but easily accessible.

Have a small kitchen? Optimize your kitchen space with a compact fridge, creating functionality and room for other things. Make your kitchen look better by installing shelves and adding stylish wallpaper, making your cooking space even nicer.

Create a Focal Point 

Creating a focal point adds visual interest, enhances the room's appeal, and makes the space feel larger and more cohesive. 

Apply or install an eye-catching animal-inspired wallpaper on one side of the small bedroom’s wall. Another great DIY idea is hanging a mirror or an art piece to create a focal point that grabs the attention of your visitors.

Lighten the Space

Brightening up a small space increases the size, boosts mood, and creates a welcoming atmosphere.

Place a semi-flush mount light together with a pendant light in the bedroom. Set a romantic mood with gentle, warm lighting. Also, carve out a cozy reading or working corner with a digital table lamp.

Add Texture to Your Small Room  

Adding texture enhances visual interest, adds depth, and sets a comfortable tone.

Another small room décor idea is to use texture to add depth to your space. Use a coffee & cream geometric wallpaper. Complement it with light-patterned throw pillows and rugs. Add a rustic vibe by placing woven baskets and dark wooden furniture in the room.

Create a Visual Height 

Enhance the room's spaciousness by creating visual height. Visual height will make your small room look larger and more open. Install a pendant light or chandelier to draw the eye upward and illuminate the space. 

Use floor-to-ceiling curtains to make your small room appear taller. Go for white sheers that brighten the space by allowing light in. 

Go Big and Bold on the Walls 

Let your walls reflect your personality and brighten your small room. This creates a statement, and the bold elements stand out as a larger tone for the small room. Use wallpaper or wall mural from floor to ceiling or create a focal wall. Opt for a black & gold wallpaper for a modern feel or choose an African art-inspired wallpaper for a classical vibe.

Match your wallpaper with your curtains, bedding, or rugs to create a harmonious design. Utilize our best bedroom wallpaper ideas to transform your bedroom into a small haven. 

Create a Minimalist Living Space

Remove decorative items and furniture that you don’t need to create more space. Similar to decluttering, the less things you have, the more space you have and open it will be. Use foldable chairs or seats that go under the dining table when not in use. Alternatively, create a minimalist Bohemian small room that features clear walls, indoor plants, and unique décor items.

Select bedding with neutral colors and use a small bedside table with multiple drawers to store unwanted clutter. 

Choose Furniture Wisely 

Choosing wisely maximizes space, enhances functionality, and maintains visual balance in a small room.

Opt for furniture that adds color, maximizes space, and matches your personality. Swap out your large sofa for a small corner sofa with an ottoman that doubles as a coffee table. 

Another trick is using multifunctional furniture like loft bed with storage or book case with a fold-down table for a reading nook. 

Utilize double-decker beds in the guest or kids' bedroom, along with stackable or expandable kitchen cabinet organizers. Additionally, consider optimizing your bathroom space with custom under-sink drawers, a small mirror, and stunning sconces.
