7. Divide & Conquer!
Another clever tip to make a small bedroom work is to use a room screen or a room divider to store and hide a desk, workout equipment and other such items. Larger plants can be used to divide spaces and hide unsightly furniture behind.
8. Hide Big and Small in Baskets
Use baskets to control bedroom clutter. Baskets come in all sizes and shapes.
9. Add a bench
Benches are ideal for small bedrooms, as they offer both seating and ample storage for blankets and other bulky bedroom items. Click here for one of many DIY benches with instructions on this site.
10. Create a tight design theme
If you limit your colors, textures and styles, your bedroom will feel like it is larger and has less clutter in it. It will also feel more designer-ish and luxurious.
Take this this travel-themed kids bedroom for example. Because of the matching sheets, rugs and other room design details, this nautical design room feels luxurious. This lovely furniture-set would work well in a small kids bedroom. Really adorable.
