With the help of streamlined decor, a smart bed design, and a few pieces of practical storage, small bedrooms can effortlessly be transformed into stylish spaces filled with cozy charm or sleek sophistication.
Small Bedroom Bed Ideas
For a small master bedroom or guest room, the bed still remains the most important aspect of the space. To effortlessly provide a perfect sleeping surface and take advantage of a space-saving style, selecting a bed with built-in storage allows you to store clothing, accessories, winter gear and bedding out of sight and out of mind. Paired with an additional dresser or storage design and the room will always feel organized and open. If you’re decorating a spare bedroom that is severely short on space, a daybed is an excellent option to host family and friends that can act as a couch, but sleep like a bed, while taking up little space.

Small Bedroom Nightstand Ideas
Nightstands offer a spot to rest a glass of water or evening read, but can also serve as supremely functional storage. Tall, streamlined designs take up less room providing you with plenty of space to stash books, chargers, and nighttime routine necessities, while simple, no-frills designs keep your nightstand clean-lined and tight to your bed, maximizing floor space. Try a combination of shelves and drawers for balanced storage and ample space to ensure your room is always clean and clutter-free or go all-out minimalist with a singular shelf or drawer design to corral just the bare essentials.

Small Bedroom Dresser Ideas
Dressers come in handy for packing away clothing and accessories in order to keep a small bedroom clean and clutter-free to avoid making the space feel even smaller. When looking to outfit a smaller space you want to ensure you take advantage of options from floor to ceiling leaving no space untouched. Look for tall storage pieces that can then be topped with bins or baskets to create even more storage, or a design with multiple sized drawers to fit all of your favorite pieces including bedding and outerwear. If square footage is an issue, opt for a tall, slim design that makes use of vertical space to provide you ample storage and decor needs.

Small Bedroom Table Lamp Ideas
Table lamps can add height to your space without taking up much room and provide accented lighting to balance out the brightness of natural or overhead lighting. Select a design that fits with your aesthetic and choose a size that will fit on your bedside table or dresser while still leaving space for an alarm clock, stack of books, and glass of water. For a Scandinavian or farmhouse-inspired space, black, white, and nickel finishes work best with a simple white shade or wooden accents. For a more modern Art Deco look opt for metallics in gold, bronze, and copper or jewel tones to make your room really pop.

Small Bedroom Rug Ideas
Even in a small space, rugs provide a grounding base to define areas and offer a touch of warmth and comfort underfoot. Light and bright colors such as cream, beige, yellow, and pale pink will make your room feel brighter and more open, while quality materials such as cotton and wool will offer durability for everyday use. Look for hand-tufted or handwoven designs for an elevated touch ready to make an impression. For a subtle pattern, try a stripe, check, or geometric design to bring a pop of personality that your floor will love.

Master Bedroom Pendant Light Ideas
If you’re not keen on having a bedside table topped with a table lamp, a pendant light may be your best solution. Utilizing ceiling space and bringing a necessary touch of brightness without invading your personal space, pendants are an effortless way to amplify your decor and define areas in your room. A touch of texture from a feathered pendant brings a soft, feminine touch to your room, while a metallic or dark-finished option works wonders in a farmhouse, Scandinavian, or even industrial space. Looking to keep things light and airy? Try a pendant design with a pleated paper or cloth shade to bring a touch of texture and subtle brightness to your bedroom.
Small Bedroom Wall Decor Ideas
Light colored wallpaper and decorative wall mirrors work to make a space feel more bright, inviting, and open, without much effort. Creating a gallery wall with your favorite decor, photographs, and art prints compiles all designs into a singular space leaving the surrounding walls uncluttered and free. This will make the room appear more open and spacious especially when amplified by natural light reflected off of the aforementioned wall mirrors placed with purpose.
Small Bedroom Decor Ideas
With a small bedroom, decor is an easy way to elevate your personal style while also bringing in additional storage options that round out your space. Stylish bins and baskets keep blankets, bedding, and shoes contained in a closet or tucked under the bed. A hanging pot filled with your favorite plants utilizes unused ceiling space rather than crowding the floor or a bedside table. A coat rack or wall shelf takes advantage of unused wall space rather than precious square footage to provide additional space for hanging clothing, sculptures, and family photos.
