Lots of homeowners have small bedrooms that feel cramped and overcrowded. Your bedroom is supposed to be a sanctuary where we can fully relax and escape from the stresses of everyday life – but this can be difficult to achieve in a smaller space. When your bedroom is lacking in square footage, it can be hard to know how to maximise space and make it feel roomier. Fortunately, there are a few ways you can turn your compact bedroom into a spacious haven that you love to spend time in. 

Over the years, our team at Ashford Kitchens & Interiors has transformed bedrooms of all sizes. Below we have listed some of the best ways to maximise space and make your bedroom more relaxing. We specialise in creating beautiful bespoke bedrooms and we can design fitted bedroom furniture that’s made-to-measure for your home. Keep reading today to learn more about how to make your bedroom feel more spacious. 

Clear the Clutter

One of the best ways to make your bedroom feel bigger is to clear out all of your clutter. Removing excess items from your bedroom will provide you with more floor space to use and you may be surprised by how much space is being taken up with clutter. More often than not, homeowners have items in their bedrooms that they no longer need or don’t use on a day-to-day basis. Having a clear-out and finding somewhere new to store clothes, shoes, accessories and other belongings can really help. 

Utilise Natural Light

Many people don’t realise how much of an impact light has on the overall look and feel of their bedroom. Another way to maximise space is to utilise light and let in as much natural light as possible. Natural light plays a huge role in how spacious your bedroom seems and flooding your bedroom with light can make it appear larger. Choose window coverings that are easy to open every morning and let sunlight in through your windows. You can also incorporate additional artificial light into your room, with pendant lights, lamps, wall lights and other forms of lighting to make your bedroom space even brighter.

Design Storage Solutions

As well as clearing out the clutter in your room, you can also add some bespoke storage solutions to maximise space. It can be very difficult to find off-the-shelf storage solutions that perfectly fit your bedroom and they can take up a lot of unnecessary space. By designing some bespoke storage solutions for your bedroom, you can easily ensure you have enough storage without overwhelming the space with pieces of furniture. Custom-made storage solutions will provide you with somewhere to store all of your belongings and there are lots of different fitted-furniture collections to explore. 

Use Your Wall Space

Another great way to maximise the space in your bedroom is to make use of your wall space. You can install different types of shelving to help you make the most of your vertical space and this is an excellent way to add additional storage to your room, without taking up any valuable floor space. Replacing bulky cabinets and drawers with shelving can help to make your bedroom feel more spacious and inviting, and you can experiment with different layout options when you have fewer pieces of furniture.

Incorporate Mirrors

To trick the eye, you can also incorporate mirrors into your bedroom decor. When placed strategically, mirrors can reflect light and create the illusion of more space. Hanging a mirror on the wall opposite a window can help to bounce natural light around the room, making it feel brighter and more spacious. Although they can’t provide you with more usable space, they can make your small bedroom feel bigger and more inviting. Mirrors also add a decorative element to the room and they can be hung to create an interesting focal point.
