First, decide what furniture you need. Only pieces that are strictly necessary should go in small rooms to avoid using up valuable space. A bedroom will need a bed, of course, but nightstands are optional. Or you could use only one instead of two. Will there be a TV in the room? If so, a flatscreen mounted on the wall obviously requires no floor space.

1. Measure the size of your SEATING AREA before shopping and get the closest size up from that. If your budget is tight and your room is small you can have a smaller rug that floats in front of all the furniture – this is especially ok if your sofa is backed up against the wall – you don’t need to waste the rug real estate under the sofa if you can’t even see that its there. But if your furniture is floating or if your room is big, get a larger rug or else it will make the room look smaller, chopped up and totally out of proportion. One of the main functions of a rug is to pull the room together, not chop it up.

The Layout: If your bedroom is barely big enough to fit a bed, there are a few hacks that will help you manage the space. While we don’t love pushing a bed against the wall, try leaving as little room as possible on one side—this will leave more space on the other for a larger bedside chest. A floating shelf on the opposite side works perfectly well in tight corners.

The Layout: A large rug (9×12 or bigger) will help anchor the space. Opt for matching bedside tables and lamps that extend to the majority of the wall, and a dresser and chair across the room. This is a classic, foolproof bedroom layout that works like a charm every time.

I all honesty, I don’t see how this is supposed to help make the most out of a small room. First of all, they just look like normal bedrooms. And anyay, I guess it’s not what I googled for. The reason I was looking for a post on how to maximize on small room space is because right now my bedroom is also my living room is also my office. I live in NY and I am SURE I am not the only person with this sort of living arrangement. Real estate costs. And quite frankly we are paying for every cubic inch of space in a room here in the city, meaning loft beds and over head storage and really anything and everything to maximize on space and provide order to a multi-purpose room. I don’t need to make my small space LOOK bigger. For what? I need it to feel functionally bigger, since I can’t actually have it bigger.

Love the photos, really gave me some ideas on decorating my next flat. The bedroom in the new property is quite small but the walls are painted in a cream colour – will be easy to pick the right elements to decorate it. Since I’m a tenant, I’ll have to find non-destructive ways of decorating the place. I will also have to think how I’ll remove and clean the place when my tenancy comes to an end, but this isn’t a problem since London is full of shops and I have plenty of things to choose from.

Smart lighting choices have a big effect on how a small bedroom feels. Soft light coming from several different directions will blur the edges of your room and, in turn, make it feel larger. Helpful Hint: Soften up your overhead light. Use a frosted shade and a lower wattage bulb to create a more calming ambience. Photo courtesy by Erin Southwell.

Create the illusion of more space by limiting the color palette. If you use similar hues on walls, furnishings and bedding, the bedroom appears larger. The lines between all the different elements will be blurred, and your eye will move effortlessly around the room. To add interest, inject a few pops of a contrasting color.

Using a small desk next to your bed will create a dual-purpose opportunity. Not only does it act as an oversized nightstand, but pair it with a small chair to serves as a work surface, too. Helpful Hint: Look for small-scale, previously-loved desks at flea markets to add instant charm to your presently-loved bedroom. Photo courtesy by AnNicole Faeth.

Making the most of the vertical space in a small bedroom is an excellent way to keep things neat and organized. Floating shelves will hold a multitude of books and magazines. Small buckets and baskets, hanging on mountable rods, will provide extra space for little, miscellaneous items. Photo courtesy of Camila Pavone.

Baskets are extremely versatile and attractive decorating tools that can add tons of much needed storage space in a small bedroom. Another plus is that baskets will complement virtually any design style, so have fun choosing ones that are just right for you. Helpful Hint: Keep reading materials out-of-sight, but not out-of-mind, by stashing a couple of baskets within arm’s reach of your bed. Photo courtesy of Rie Sterling.

If you need an office area in your bedroom, a desk and chair will suffice. If there’s enough storage in the closet, you could leave out a bureau. And if there isn’t enough closet space, adding a well-designed shelving system could double available storage.

3. Legs on or off? This is a question i get ALL the time and my best tip is BE CONSISTENT. If you don’t have a massive rug that fits all your furniture (because yes, that is ideal) then make sure that you are at least consistent with how you handle the legs; if your sofa legs are off, have the chair legs off the rug  as well. If your sofa is all on, then you can’t have the chairs all off or it will really chop up the conversation area.  So I say, ALL ON, or ALL OFF or if its slightly too small to be all on, then try to have them all pretty evenly on the rug. Is that confusing? Just be consistent so it looks as intentional as possible.

The Extras: Large master suites often come with a walk-in closet, so forego the dresser in favor of more comfortable furniture. A reading corner, a desk, a bench, and a large plant can all help fill in awkward corners. Assess your needs, and plan your layout accordingly.
