5 Tips to Make a Small Bedroom Appear Larger

Tip 1 - Drapery

Floor to ceiling drapery is one of the most effective ways to make a space look like it has higher ceilings. If you install your drapery close to ceiling, it will trick you eye into looking up.

Tip 2 - Paint

Paint your walls in light colors. This will help with reflecting light in a space, making the room look larger

Tip 3 - Stripes! 

Just like hanging your drapery close to the ceiling, stripped walls will fool your eye into thinking the room is taller.

Tip 4 - Scale and Proportion. 

Make sure to buy furniture that fits the space. If you have a small bedroom and a large clunky wood bed frame, odds are, it's not going to look good. Instead, replace it with a wall hung tufted piece that will shave off a few extra inches.

Tip 5 - No Clutter. 

It's always hard to edit, but it is so important in a small space. To keep an open feel, choose a few cherished items to display and ditch the unnecessary knick-knacks.
