People often struggle to get the most out of the space in their bedroom, though with a few easy tips, it's easy to stay on top of things and keep your sleeping space feeling open, fresh and relaxing. Firstly, remove as much clutter as possible. The more items that are in your bedroom, the more cramped it feels. If you look around the room and can't see the floor, you have too much furniture or personal belongings. Try to use any unnecessary furniture in another room of the house and remove large collections of personal belongings to create the illusion of space. Buy furniture that instead maximises wall space; small bedrooms are more suited to shelves, flatter wardrobes and other items that allow you to have floor space in front of them. From here, it is important to scale decor by the size of a bed, which will likely be the focal point of the room. If you have a large bed, get table lamps and decorations that are in proportion to it. Finally, choose colour schemes wisely. Dark shades in a small room can make bedrooms feel closer and more oppressive; try to keep them to accessories like pillows, rugs and accents in drapery or bed linen. Lighter colours on walls will give a greater illusion of space.
