To add an open, airy look and feel to the room, use all the natural light you have in the room. Many Scandinavian rooms don’t even incorporate any window treatments at all, but leave the windows open and curtain and shade-free. If you choose to hang window treatments, keep in the same frame of mind as the rest of the room and keep it simplistic, clean and neat. Light weight, sheer white drapes made of light fabrics, such as cotton or linen, are popular.
Lighting plays a big role in any room. The use of natural light can instantly make a room feel bigger and airier. If your room doesn’t have much natural light, try using lighting on different levels, from a small hanging chandelier over the bed, wall sconces, floor lamp and table lamps, to increase the look and feel of the room.
Every room needs a focal point, and using that focal point to the advantage of the room is key. A focal point draws the eyes in to it and whatever you choose to use as the focal point should be eye-catching. You can choose to use the bed’s headboard, a picture, window, or chandelier. If you use the head of a bed, try enhancing the headboard with bold-colored throw pillows to draw the eyes in even more. If you choose a window, add eye-catching draperies to make the window pop and make it the center of attention.
Storage is usually tight in a small bedroom. You will want to be creative with your storage if you are lacking. Ideas for storage in a small bedroom include, use a decorative chest for a nightstand to store items or clothing, or place an ottoman under a window or at the foot of the bed for seating as well as holding winter clothes. Storage, or sweater boxes can be slid under a bed. If the bed is too low, try setting the frame up on risers and add a bed skirt that flows to the floor, to hide what’s underneath.
