Cozy & Compact: Small Bedroom Ideas That Make a Big Impact

Cozy & Compact: Small bedroom ideas that make a big impact

Is a cramped master bedroom keeping you up at night?

Before you start swinging a sledgehammer and tackling a major renovation, here are five tips to help you maximize your current space. With a thoughtful approach and the right pieces, you can have a space that will work for you.

Scale It Down

You don’t have to sacrifice great style to find furniture that’ll fit in a small space, and the Urban Loft collection from Modus is a great example of this.

This web-only collection was designed with a small, urban space in mind, so it’s scaled perfectly for a tinier bedroom. But it still packs a punch with premium features like hardwood construction, English dovetail joinery, full extension glides and faux leather headboard paneling.

Wall-hugging designs help you maximize every inch. This queen-sized bed, from Daniel’s Amish, sits flush against the wall and is available in five wood varieties.

Superior Master Bedroom Storage

Consider a storage bed to step up your storage game. Built-in drawers in the footboard or rails (or both) provide the perfect place for storing bulky items like sweaters, bedding and more.

Reflecting Greatness

Maximizing your bedroom space is as much about giving the illusion of a spacious setting as it is about correctly using the space you have.

The key player in this arena is the humble mirror. Mirrors visually enlarge any space they’re added to, while catching and reflecting any rays of light they catch to brighten up even the dreariest of spaces.

We’ve amassed a collection of hundreds of bedroom mirrors, all of which mount easily on coordinating dressers. For even more variety, an accent mirror can add a punch of personality and style.

Lighten Up

Add white and neutral hues to your color considerations, not only for walls but also for furniture. These, too, can brighten up your space, making it feel more airy and roomy.

We like the Heritage bed from Modus Furniture: a fully upholstered frame, soft fabric, button tufting and a versatile ivory hue.

It also provides a blank canvas on which you can build to personalize your space. Add a rug or a new comforter set to pull in unique geometric details or splash of bold, vibrant color.

Clutter Cutter

Eliminating clutter, like piles and cords, will go a long way in creating a more calming, tranquil atmosphere. And a bedroom should be nothing if not tranquil, right?

Power nightstands are a great option. Aspenhome’s Rockland nightstand offers a convenient, built-in charging station with two outlets and a USB charger housed in its felt-lined top drawer. It also boasts three-way touch path lighting.
