4 Tricks to Make Your Bedroom Appear Bigger

4 Tricks to Make Your Bedroom Appear Bigger

Having a lot of space is a luxury not many people can afford. This is especially true when talking about flats and houses. Sure, you may have a big patch of land, but if your house is small, there is nothing you can do besides expanding it.
Obviously, this costs a lot of money and on top of that, you will need to acquire all necessary building permits. If you don’t have that kind of money at your disposal but you still want to increase the space in at least some of your rooms, we’ve got your back. Luckily, we have discovered some innovative solutions to make your small and cluttered room appear bigger.
Now, we will be focusing mainly on the bedroom because it is more than just a room where you sleep. The majority of people relax in it and spend time preparing for work, party, etc., and it’s pretty hard to do these things when you feel like the walls are closing in on you. That being said, you can implement most of these solutions in your other rooms as well.

Mirrors, mirrors, and more mirrors

Mirrors are well-known for their ability to create illusions. That is exactly why we are going to use them in your bedroom to “create more space”. To achieve the best possible effect, you should cover one entire wall with mirrors. The ideal solution is a big wardrobe that spreads from one side of the room to the other and from the floor to the ceiling. Cover the wardrobe doors with mirrors and your bedroom will appear a lot bigger.

Natural light and bright colours is what matters

Dark colours make your room appear even smaller, so you should avoid them at all costs. Instead, go for some natural and bright tones. Colours like white, cream, and light grey are always a good choice and they are easy to match with other elements in your bedroom.
Besides the colour of the bedroom walls, you should also let in as much sunlight as you can. Natural light expands your room visually and makes it much brighter as well. If you have big bedroom windows, don’t cover them up with overbearing curtains and never block them with a closet or bed. Let the sunlight enter your bedroom and do its magic.

Special kind of doors

Regular doors can take a lot of space when they are fully open. The only solution for this problem is to install a special kind of door. For the bedroom entrance, we recommend a sliding door. This type of doors doesn’t swing in an arch, but instead, it slides to one side when opened, taking a lot less space.
For wardrobes and closets, we recommend using bi-fold doors. These doors take exactly half of the space less than regular doors. Lastly, if you have an exit to the balcony from your bedroom, you should opt for either sliding doors or French doors. They are practical, take less space, and look great. However, don’t forget to install flyscreen doors on all your balcony exits if you don’t want insects bothering you at night.

Nothing on the floor

We have one last suggestion and that is to keep all things possible off the floor. That means bedside tables, lamps, and any other piece of furniture that can be mounted on your wall. The idea is to declutter your bedroom floor as much as possible so you can move through your bedroom with ease, so attach to the wall anything that you can, including lamps, shelves, hooks, and racks.


  1. Small bedrooms are uniquely difficult to design and decorate because of one essential piece of large furniture: the bed. However, just because you have a large bed in a small room, that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your sense of style and, more importantly, sense of space.
