How to equip a small bedroom?
Unfortunately, in our country, quite a few families are familiar with the problem of small-sized residential premises. But fortunately there are a number of design techniques, applying which you can visually increase the space. It should be immediately noted that there are several controversial issues in which specialists have not come to a common opinion. We will single them out separately. Initially, we note unconditional moments.
The color of the walls. In a small room only light tones are allowed. Warm shades fill it with comfort, but at the same time “narrow” the space. Colds saturate the room with light and visually expand it, making, however, more official. Whether it will be decorative plaster, painting or wallpapering is not important. The main thing – the choice of color. If at the same time one wall (preferably the one with the head of the bed) has a different color — richer and deeper — this will add additional volume to the room. It must be remembered that the vertical pattern “lengthens” the room, making it already, horizontal, on the contrary, expands and visually lowers the ceiling. It is strongly contraindicated to use wallpaper with a large pattern – they will emphasize the small size of the room.
The choice of furniture. It is better to use medium sized furniture. From heavy cabinets and chest of drawers must be abandoned. Bedside tables are also better to replace with consoles. All furniture should have legs, and not “grow out” of the floor. This will give it airiness and make the interior more light. Using mirrors will saturate the room with additional light and space. Designers advise to ignore one of the Feng Shui installations and place the mirror surface opposite the window – this way it will fulfill its function to the maximum.
Lighting. A small room can be visually expanded due to the correct light scenario. Need to use multiple light sources. Bulky chandeliers in the center of the room are contraindicated. There are spotlights, openwork sconces over the bed, a floor lamp. The option of using a light ribbon located at the level of the ceiling baguette will be very successful – this technique will visually expand the room and raise the ceiling. The same result will be achieved in the case when the tape will be started over the baseboard along the entire radius of the room. An additional volume will be received by the room, if the light tape is allowed behind the cornice for curtains.
The decor. It should not be intrusive, but you should not completely abandon it. It is necessary to avoid, for example, heavy massive paintings, but a picture hung at the head of the bed with a plot stretching into the distance would be very appropriate. The task of expanding the space will also serve as wallpaper, which can also be used to decorate the wall at the head. Use of small open shelves with photos on them is possible. However, you need to abandon the many decorative pillows on the bed, as well as from small decorative art objects that will crush the room, turning the bedroom into a warehouse of forgotten things.
Window decoration. The window should be as open as possible and serve as a source of light. Therefore, you need to abandon the heavy dark curtains, it is better to use roller blinds and light tulle. You can not also force the windowsill pots with flowers or pillows. Not bad will look backlight slopes with light ribbon.
Designers disagree on what color the ceiling is optimal for a small bedroom. A common opinion is white. However, some experts claim that the bright, saturated color of the ceiling will immediately expand the space. No less courageous decision is to make the floor striped. This will “tear” him from the walls and make the room soaring. In this case, the plinth should be as wide as possible – this method expands the floor area. These are very bold sentences, and it is up to you whether to follow them or limit yourself to generally accepted methods.
But listening to our advice, you at least visually increase the area of your bedroom and make it cozy, comfortable and aesthetic.
