Your bedroom is more than just a place to sleep. It's a sanctuary where you can lounge, relax and unwind from the stress of the day. If your bedroom falls on the smaller side, there are plenty of ways to decorate and utilise the space to create an illusion of depth. From vertical furnishings to incorporating reflective surfaces, here are some creative ways to maximise your small bedroom, so you can prove that petite spaces can be big on style.
1. Hanging lights
It's not surprising that many interior designers love using pendant lights to adorn small spaces. If bedside tables, light stands and lampshades are cramping your style, opt instead for hanging lights to create extra floor space around your bed and lend an air of luxury to the room. Interior designer Blaine Robert recommends placing pendant lights on either side of the bed for symmetry and hotel-inspired elegance.
For instance, this gorgeous bedroom in a chic apartment in Hong Kong (pictured above) makes use of dreamy pendant lights to match the colour scheme of the entire room, while a bay window lets in plenty of natural light, which also helps to open up the space as well.
