Small Bedroom, Big Ideas: How to Maximise Space in a Small Bedroom

How to maximise space in a small bedroom is a common problem you might face as a homeowner. Bedroom design is a hard task as you have to balance functionality and style with sufficient storage space for your needs.

If you’re struggling with how to maximise space in your bedroom, don’t worry! The team at Modern Living is here to give you all the answers.

Let’s explore some of the ways to make the most out of the space in a smaller bedroom. 

Creative Ideas on How to Maximise Space in a Small Bedroom

When working with a limited amount of space, finding creative solutions is the way to go. You can’t just magic more space out of thin air, but with some smart space planning, you can certainly make the room feel less crammed.

Here are some of the best tips to follow, if you have a tiny bedroom.

Maximise Wardrobe Space

If you’re looking for ways to optimise space in your bedroom, your wardrobe is a good place to start. Have a look at how you’re currently using the space and think how you could be using it better. Sketch out your wardrobe and plan a layout that doesn’t leave awkward gaps or empty spaces. 

As a smart short-term solution to help you maximise the available space you can try adding extra shelves or clothing rods to your existing layout. Even folding your clothes to take up less space can help you utilise your existing wardrobe space more efficiently.

Make the Most of Your Wall Space

Wall space is often overlooked when trying to create storage. In smaller bedrooms it’s important to utilise wall space in order to keep clutter off the floor. From built-in cupboards to open shelving units or floating shelves, there are many ways to use your wall space. 

One thing to be mindful of with small bedroom storage is the “out of sight, out of mind” approach. While open storage gives a contemporary look, any visible items will make the room feel even smaller and more cluttered. 

Opt for Floor-to-Ceiling Wardrobes

With most wardrobes, you often get the awkward space on top which doesn’t get used. You can try to find boxes to fit up there, but often this is not an optimal solution and can make the room feel even smaller. Investing in some full-height wardrobes that go all the way to the ceiling will provide you some extra space and eliminate those unused gaps. 

Utilise Awkward Corners

If your bedroom is in the loft you often get those awkward nooks that you don’t know how to utilise in the best way. Using awkward corners is a must to make the most of the available space in a small bedroom. This means getting creative and looking for bespoke solutions rather than finding furniture that fits in the gap.  

Choose Sliding Doors

Another thing overlooked when it comes to bedroom ideas with limited space is taking into consideration the wardrobe’s doors to ensure they can open easily. Traditionally, you have to account for enough space for the doors to open fully, which means you’re limited in terms of bed placements. 

Sliding doors are a great way to resolve this and save some precious space in your room. Add mirrored doors to the mix and you’re on the right track to making even the tiniest bedroom feel much bigger. 

Go Bespoke with Fitted Furniture

When it’s hard to make your space fit around traditional manufactured furniture, make the furniture fit around your space. There are many reasons to choose a bespoke bedroom design but particularly in a small bedroom this is the best way to maximise your existing space. 

Fitted furniture provides the perfect solution for a bedroom where space is at a premium because it’s made to your exact measurements and specifications. Remember those awkward nooks and corners we talked about earlier? With bespoke bedroom furniture you can make the most of them and give yourself more storage space.
