3. emphasize the shape of the room

A key element in knowing how to decorate a small bedroom is mastering the understanding of your bedroom layout and taking advantage of its shape and size. A square room is quite easy to organize with a centered bed and a statement contrasting wall exposing your headboard, whereas a narrow room has limited options. In such a case the bed will definitely occupy the wall with the window serving as a headboard and an elegant wooden bench perfectly placed at the foot of the bed decorated with lovely scented candles, magazines, books and other accents will enrich your space.If your bedroom is constructed in a room with multiple other functions and you don’t have the option of having a private one, choose to mask it and offer yourself privacy with a set of white elegant curtains.You can also go the other way around and use one of your windows to construct your alcove bed as a focal point of the room with colorful pillows and beautiful bedspreads.You can add a single string of flickering lights to cozy up the atmosphere.

Natural lighting is a key element in a small bedroom design. It can brighten up the space, make it seem larger and more fresh.Work it to your advantage and be careful not to crowd the space by adding heavy curtains.If you do choose this privacy option, opt for floor to ceiling long curtains to provide the sensation of height to your room even if your window is not that large.French windows are beautiful elements that should definitely be put to value in any space. Let them breathe and express themselves freely without any constraints.
