2. Introduce bright or dark colours
The rule for small bedroom decorating ideas tends to be, go with lighter colours to make the room seem larger. But some colour can be worked in to add interest, without making the room feel closed in.
If your small bedroom is mostly white, try a feature wall with wallpaper that has a subtle decorative motif of flowers and leaves. Neutral flooring with crisp white walls, plus the floral pattern and minimal accessories result in a stylish, refreshing space. Or work with a single decorative motif, perhaps a favourite shape or print, into two or three forms, such as artwork, accessories and furnishings.
Position your bed in front of your accent wall, showcasing your bed’s headboard. Or create the effect of a headboard with clever use of reclaimed wood or flooring. Stick to white bed linen to create contrast and prevent the look becoming too busy, with coloured accessories to add more zest.
If looking for wallpaper for an accent wall, choose a large-scale pattern rather than an overly busy one which can make a room feel smaller.
