Mirror is a Must!
For a small bedroom, mirror can become mandatory to help make the entire space feel larger. There are a lot of different ways that you can use to incorporate mirror into your space, such as installing a large wall mirror, or using a beautiful decorative mirror as a focal point for one of your bedroom wall.
Keep it Simple
We are not recommending any interior and decorating style that need a lot of different elements, curbs, frames, moldings, etc for a small bedroom. Those beautiful elements surely will look wonderful, but only in a large bedroom. In a smaller ones, those different decorative elements can make the space looks cramped, crowded, and visually can make the entire space look smaller that it actually is. Thus, for any small bedroom, we tend to choose any simple style such as minimalist, modern farmhouse or simple contemporary.
When arranging your furniture and decoration items, there are two main general approach that you can choose, symmetrical or asymmetrical. For a master bedroom, symmetrical approach often become the best choice to create a crisp, neat and organized spaces. But it become completely different when it comes to small bedroom, where forcing to go with symmetrical approach can bring more negative impact than positive ones. For example, in a large master suite, a pair of nightstand or bedside table is a must. But for a small ones, using two bedside table will take too much space and make the bedroom look crowded.
