Sometimes you just get stuck with a small space - no big deal, right? Except that sometimes it can feel even smaller than it is, claustrophobic even. So, if you're into home renovation or interior design, here are ten tips to make even the smallest of bedrooms look nice, giving you a gorgeous living space.

1. Mirrors

Mirrors can give the illusion of a much larger space. Use both full wall mirrors and smaller mirrors. Avoid using standing mirrors which could take up space, instead go for wall mounted ones.

2. Painting the Ceiling

This draws eyes up and away from a clustered space. Try painting some stars or clouds!

3. Use Light Colours

Light colours, both on walls and floors, allow light to be reflected, creating an illusion of a bigger space. These are better thandark colours, which can make rooms look cosy and warm, but can lead to a smaller looking space.

4. Striped Rugs

Using stripes helps to elongate the room. Using a rug with wide stripes, lay it across the length of the room that is longest for the best effect.

5. Clear Furniture

Furniture made from materials such as lucite, acrylic and glass allow for surfaces to be used but still not take up much visual space.

6. Exposed Legs

Use chairs and beds with exposed legs, which allows for more of the wall and floor colour to be shown.

7. Use similar colours

Using a palette of similar colours shows tonal familiarity, which really lets you open up the space!

8. Small Lights

Instead of using overhead lights, use smaller lights, which don't cast the same harsh shadows all over the room.

9. Uncovered Windows

Another way to let in the most light possible. If you need to have shade, use blinds instead of curtains.

10. Big Art Pieces

Instead of lots of smaller photos or paintings, instead choose one large statement piece to really draw the eye.

Hopefully these interior design tips have helped you with some ideas to have the bedroom of your dreams - No matter how small!
