Small bedrooms are the worst, especially if it’s the only space in the house that is solely yours. When your bedroom is barely big enough for your bed, let alone everything else, you can feel like you’re about to have a mountain of clothes, books, and other personal items fall on you in the night. Clutter also makes it difficult to get a good night’s sleep, because you always see something that reminds you of a task you have yet to complete. If you’ve already purged enough of your belongings and still don’t have enough space, here are a few ways you can make your tiny bedroom feel huge.

Use your wall space

If the floor has no space for storage, then keep your books and various trinkets on shelves instead. Start installing shelves 12 inches below your ceiling (arguably the least used space in any bedroom) along the whole perimeter of your bedroom, and then add more going down as necessary. You can also use shelves to build yourself a floating nightstand, or make a floating desk so you don’t lose floor space. Shelves really are wonderful things.

Multi-purpose bed

Gone are the days when you had to feel guilty about hiding your mess under the bed. Now you can buy the perfect storage beds from online stores like, Ikea, or Argos. The can come in any kind of design; you can get a classic bed with drawers underneath, or you can get a little more creative with headboard storage, elevated beds with shelves underneath, or an ottoman bed where the whole mattress lifts up to reveal hidden treasures. If the storage in your bed is going to be mostly out of sight, then it might be better suited for items you don’t immediately need, such as extra blankets for winter, or blank notepads to be used in the future.The Big Secrets In Your Tiny Bedroom 3Image Source


Standalone wardrobes can be bulky, but they don’t often fit in all you clothes. There are two possible solutions to this problem, once you’ve donated any unnecessary clothes to charity. If you’re lucky enough to have fitted wardrobes in your bedroom, then switch out the doors for sliding doors to remove the concerns about where the doors will open out to. If you don’t have a fitted wardrobe, then you can hang a clothes rack in the corner of your bedroom. Of course, this means that your entire clothes collection will be openly displayed, but if this really bothers you, then you can use an old bedsheet as a stylish cover.

Fold-down furniture

Say you need a desk in your room, but you don’t have enough floor space to accommodate a desk; just install a fold-down desk that practically disappears when you fold it back up against the wall. These desks come in all shapes, sizes, and styles. Some even have built-in storage for your office supplies. They’re a great storage solution for your bedroom, if and when you work from home. All you need is a chair
