Optimizing Space and Functionality in Bedrooms

Every room in a house serves its own purpose. It has its own personality and adds a unique charm to the character of your interior in its own way.

Whether it’s the cozy atmosphere of a living room with a fireplace, or the urbanity of a newly renovated kitchen — every room creates its own space and adds its own charm to a house.

It goes without saying that the bedroom plays an imperative role in a home. It’s where you de-stress by taking a nap, after a long day of work. It’s where you untangle your thoughts.

In a nutshell, it’s a place that defines the true meaning of “home sweet home.”

So when you want to optimize space and make your bedroom stand out from the rest of the rooms in the house, it’s understandable you’re confused. Not knowing where to start is a common problem faced by homeowners around the world.

But there are certain measures you can take to optimize space and add functionality. Here’s what you can do:

Reduce the Bed Size

While everyone loves a king-sized bed, do we really need one? That’s the question you should be asking.

If you do, that’s fine. But if you don’t, think about opting for a smaller bed or go for one with several storage drawers. This should especially be considered if you have kids and need the extra drawers to store things!

If you live alone, consider going for a sofa-bed or an air mattress. This way, you’ll be able to optimize space and get your beauty sleep!

Remove Large Storage Furniture

It’s understandable that the armoire was a present from your in-laws or a friend. But if it’s taking up too much space, consider shifting it into another room, or storing it in the attic.

If your bedroom has too many large furniture storages, it can cramp up space. So armoires and dressers are out of the picture!

Instead, consider installing a closet in your bathroom, or store clothes in your bed’s storage.

Install a Murphy’s Bed

A Murphy’s bed may be the best option if you don’t plan to remove furniture, or don’t have space to utilize other rooms.

What this will do is save you space so that you can add a nice, chic and minimalistic look to your bedroom’s interior.

At night, you can simply pull out the bed when you need to!

Paint the Walls

Here’s a brilliant hack: paint your bedroom with pastel shades. This creates an illusion that the walls are further apart than they actually are. This will make your bedroom look bigger than it is, giving a grand illusion of spaciousness.
