Small Spaces - Bedroom

Either you’ve just moved into your cozy first home or your babies have flown the coop and you’ve downsized your living space. Going from large to a small space can be a bit of an adjustment. We are here to lend a helping hand and a design eye to help you transition into your new space - and love it.


In this blog post, we will go over some tips and tricks when designing for a small master bedroom.

  1. Shrink Your Headboard: This give’s the illusion of higher ceilings and makes room for decor and shelving.

  2. Take advantage of vertical space: Taller armoires can do wonders for maximizing storage and keeping your space looking modern and fresh. Build up, not out.

  3. Under the bed storage: Low on closet space? Keep chunky clothing like heavy sweaters under the bed - or whatever you want! Many bed frames are designed with small spaces in mind, featuring non-invasive drawers under the bed. Convenient, beautiful and won’t take up precious space in your room.

  4. Choose light over dark: The lighter your colours are, the more open and airy the room feels. Add interest and personality with colourful bedding and accent pillows.

  5. Get reflective: To give the illusion your space is larger than it is, lean a large mirror up against a wall. Practical, easy and beautiful.

  6. Two for one: Who says your dresser can’t also be a nightstand.

  7. Small Accent Chair: Even though you don't have a ton of space, a simple chair will add function to your room. It is a perfect surface to place your bag when you get home at night or a place to layout your outfits for the next day.

  8. Rugs: If your space requires a rug/rugs, choose smaller runners that still show flooring on either side of the rugs. This gives the illusion of larger floor space. Need help? Contact our design team! Or visit us in-store.
