Designed by Steve Kuhl, this amazing pirate inspired bedroom accomplishes a dream for pirate enthusiasts of all ages. Ingeniously constructed, the unique bedroom can be accessed by letting go of all fears and becoming a child again: at a superior floor, a hole in the wall takes you sliding down a slide to a comfortable pillow located in the actual bedroom. Once you get up, the eyes immediately rise to meet a wonderful, fairy tale structure: a large pirate ship high on the ceiling. A wooden rope bridge is used to access the ship, where the crow’s nest reigns, alongside a second bed, for guests. The crow’s nest was made using a ten inch hand-hewn timber for extra strength and a rope connects it to the dressing below. The structure of the ship was carefully created: “We used 2×12 ribs to construct the hull of the ship, covering them with layers of 1/2 inch plywood to act as the planking. Our genius faux finisher developed a bomb-proof blend of plaster and epoxy with integrated colouring to simulate an old ship’s hull.” There is another way to access the bedroom: through a door that also hides the magic kingdom of the sea. A jail cell with a custom steel door meets whoever enters the room. It also serves as the base of the rope bridge. This astonishing interior design will help the child grow up in a creative environment, don’t you think?
Calling all small space dwellers! Big city apartments, vintage home layouts, and modern space downsizing all call for design that expands the possibilities of small. If you need a bedroom makeover but don’t think you have enough bedroom to work with, you’re in the right place. We’ve got some lovely small bedroom ideas to prove small spaces can be stylish.
While modern and luxurious design ideas often tell you that you need to have a sitting area, small office, or a king size bed in your bedroom, don’t forget that a bedroom’s main function is to be a place to rest and recharge. And you don’t much to create a beautiful space to do so.
In fact, your small bedroom may be a blessing for a better night’s sleep. The American Sleep Association recommends keeping stimulating activities out of the bedroom. They warn that distractions like TV, internet, and work can disrupt your sleep patterns. So, the less there is to do in your bedroom, the more sleep you set yourself up for. How’s that for smart design?
The color white is an expansive and practical choice for a small bedroom. It keeps the space from looking too busy or boxed in. Using white or lighter colors combats the absence of large wall space or windows to brighten up the space.
Afraid of being too stark? To keep your small bedroom from feeling cold or void of personality, layer your whites with different textures and white-on-white patterns for drama. In the bedroom above, the simple addition of a patterned throw and chrome bedside lamps transforms the room for sterile to stylish.
Most bedroom styles feature the bed by centering it on the wall. However, narrow floor plans and limited space call for deviation for this.
To maximize the floor space, tuck your bed up against a wall or corner. The effect will create a sleep area that feels cozier. If it feels too much like a college dorm? Add a two headboard corner system to create a finished, designer look to a bedroom.
A few inches of extra space can be vital in a small bedroom. Part ways with your footboard-style bed frame and replace it with a simple modern headboard to finish the look of your bed.
Or, opt for a hollywood-style frame that supports the bottom of the bed and extends no further than the perimeter of the mattress. You can decorate the space above the bed with art, or add a headboard later.
Add space to your bedroom by paring it down to your favorite essentials. The focus of this space is undeniably the bed, so keep furniture pieces and accessories down to a minimum.
Even better, use sleek, contemporary built-ins for additional storage. Built-ins maximize storage while looking like they’re not even there. A good built-in around your bed creates a cozy sleeping nook while adding plenty of storage.
Mirrors expand a small bedroom by creating the illusion of a bigger room. Positioning a mirror to reflect the light of a window is also the only way to up the natural light in your space.
The easiest way to incorporate a big mirror to your space? Find a body-length mirror and lean it up against the wall. No holes needed. Though, you’ll want to secure it with wall tacky for peace of mind.
If you’re in the market for a new bed, consider a bed with drawers underneath for extra storage. If space is so limited that drawers may not open easily, use decorative bins under your bed for additional storage. We love milk crates and other woven baskets that hold up well and look great doing it.
If floor space is limited but you have higher ceilings, consider adding a loft or platform for your sleeping area with storage or seating underneath. This isn’t an option for everyone, but for those who don’t mind literally climbing into bed, this layout can completely transform a space.
Just because your bedroom is small doesn’t mean it has to be dull. Add a bold wallpaper pattern to a focal wall, like your headboard wall.
Wallpaper tends to get a bad rap for making rooms look small and cluttered, but using the right style and technique does just the opposite. Add a bold wallpaper pattern to a focal wall, like your headboard wall.
When selecting wallpaper, choose a large-scale pattern over a small, busy one. Don’t forget to create a cohesive look by coordinating your bedding with your beautiful, new wallpaper.
Renters, you can play will wallpaper too. Have a look at our article for removable wallpaper.
The versatile floating shelf can work in many useful ways in a small bedroom. Here are some floating shelf small bedroom ideas:
-A nightstand replacement -An entry table by the door -A bookcase -A place to hold a collection of modern colorful boxes housing clothing and accessories -A laptop desk
In newer construction, drywall is normally hollow and supported by vertical 2x 4 wood beams (studs) that are 16” apart. If your bed is set up on a non-exterior wall, use a stud finder to mark where your bed’s wood wall beams are and cut out an alcove. Your new alcove may not be incredibly deep, but it may be all you need for small necessities like an alarm clock or some personal items.
Finding design-savvy ways to magically create extra storage space in a tiny bedroom isn't always easy. While unsightly over-the-door organizers and bulky dressers are always an option (if you squeeze them in), it pays to use your imagination and get creative when coming up with stylish storage ideas.
To help make your life a little easier (and a whole lot more organized), we rounded up 30 of our favorite small bedroom storage and design solutions. From wall-mounted shelves to swing arm sconces, these clever ideas are all designed to maximize a storage-deprived space — no matter how little square footage you're working with.
The greatest thing about Ghost chairs—aka clear acrylic ones like this one on The Every Girl—is that visually, they are so light, you barely see them (i.e. less visual clutter). Not only are they super stylish—they won't further cramp up your tiny bedroom.
Turn even the tightest bedroom corner into a streamlined storage display with nothing more than a few wall-mounted floating shelves. Create your very own office station, like Harlow James did in her room on Style Me Pretty, and show off your fave shoes (or books!), too.
Don't technically have a separate bedroom? A bookcase that doubles as a room divider can work wonders for a cramped studio. It'll designate your sleeping space, but also the space between your books and decor is enough to let light stream in.
Hanging garment racks, like this one featured on My Scandinavian Home, are a clever way to score more closet storage (or create a closet out of nowhere) without taking up an inch of floor space. A dresser underneath creates the perfect dressing area. Head over to A Beautiful Mess and learn how to fashion your own DIY version at home.
If you've been searching for a stylish way to bring more lighting into your cramped bedroom (without taking up too much space), consider swing-arm wall sconces. Not only are they much less bulky than most table lamps and pendants, these wall-mounted wonders are designed with adjustable arms, like this sleek one on Designlovefest, for a more space-savvy lighting solution.
If you're an art lover but lacking the space to show off your treasured works in your bedroom, a nightstand layered with framed art—as seen in this home tour on Design*Sponge—can make a big impact without wasting any valuable wall space.
When every bit of wall space counts, why not try shelving that doubles as art? A cool hanging shelf, like this one by Ferm Living we spotted in a bedroom designed on SF Girl by Bay in collaboration with Bri Emery of Designlovefest, allows you to store (and show off) your favorite trinkets and display your beloved baubles, and won't take up an inch of floor space.
When you don't have the room for large-scale bedroom furnishings, consider going big with your decor—think: bold throw pillows, colorful art, and layered textiles like this tiny bedroom on Style Me Pretty—instead.
Who says you need a big bedroom to create your own workspace? A wall-mounted shelf, like this one featured on Rock My Style, beautifully doubles as a personal desk and mounts directly to your wall for added efficiency.
Forget your grandmother's Murphy bed. A foldout bedframe—like this one in Daniel's NYC studio—is a clever way to conceal bulky furniture in your tiny apartment space.
You don't always need two nightstands, especially if you're sleeping alone. Take a cute from this bedroom via No Longer Wander's Instagram and try a houseplant instead. It'll bring fast style to your bedroom without the need for a bulky piece of furniture and will help clean your air, too. Win, win!
Place a pair of nesting tables next to your bed instead of a traditional nightstand (like designer Orlando Soria did in his guest room featured on Emily Henderson), and you can instantly create more storage room for when you might need it without bringing in more furniture to do the job (plus, bonus points, you can use the empty space underneath the tables for even more storage in baskets or crates).
If you thought daybeds were just for kids then think again. Along with offering a more compact bed frame, some versions come with built-in drawers for more storage. They're also great for doubling as a sofa, which is what designer and blogger Lauren McGrath (who works with her mother Suzanne for their firm McGrath II) did in her 250-square-foot New York studio apartment, featured in Domino.
Putting a storage bench, baskets or even crates at the foot of your bed is a smart way to squeeze in more of whatever you need. This typically only takes up about a foot of space but the payoff is invaluable.
Looking for a stylish way to bring more lighting into your bedroom without further cramping the space? A pendant light, or any hanging light for that matter, instantly brightens up a room and doesn't require an inch of table or floor space.
Dealing with a dreaded small space double whammy (i.e. a tiny bedroom and bathroom)? Follow Kathleen William Barnes' lead on The Every Girl and turn a super slim desk setup in your bedroom into a vanity with nothing more than a wall mirror.
Ask any New Yorker, or small space dweller for that matter, how they pack in more storage room in their tiny apartments and they'll say the same thing: think vertically. Whether with wall-mounted shelves or suspended lights (like in this Home Polish designer's bedroom), you can always build up when you run out of eye-level storage room.
Sometimes all you need next to your bed is a small table to hold a glass of water and your alarm/cellphone. A thin pedestal table, like this simply stunner from SFGirlByBay's IG feed, is perfect for placing bedside miscellany without adding more clutter in a room with larger furnishings.
While this bedroom from Emily Henderson wouldn't be considered "small" by any means, there is a part of it that's perfect to borrow inspiration from for a far tighter space: a slim leaning ladder. These clever pieces allow you to hang up your purses and scarves (and other accessories) in style, no hammer and nails necessary.
Anyone who has ever lived in a major city has probably had their share of small-bedroom woes. (Why is it that the room expected to hold the largest piece of furniture is often one of the tiniest?) It may seem like your options are confined to squeezing in a bed and—if you’re lucky—a nightstand, but there are ways to pack plenty of style into your limited space. Also, don't overlook the benefits. “I actually prefer smaller bedrooms to larger ones,” says Portland, Oregon, designer Max Humphrey, whose own bedroom is on the small side. “They’re cozier and you don’t have to waste money furnishing a room with a seating area no one will ever use.” If you’re ready to embrace your small bedroom, check out Humphrey’s tips for making the most of it.
1. Keep the Layout Simple There isn’t a magic trick to the layout of the small bedroom. “There’s usually an obvious main wall to put the bed, and I don’t like to get too clever as far as placement—like floating the bed frame in the middle of the room or at an angle in the corner,” says Humphrey. The designer also suggests placing the bed in the center of the main wall, rather than pushing one side up against the adjacent wall. “Having room to walk on either side is key not only for room flow but also to give you space to make your bed, if you’re into that sorta thing,” he says.
You’re not limited to whites or neutrals when it comes to the wall color of a small bedroom. “I don’t buy into that whole ‘Never paint a small room a dark color’ design dogma,” says Humphrey. “I say embrace the size and moodiness of a small room and even play into it. Painting a room a charcoal gray or navy blue or olive green can be chic and sexy.”
Whether you go for a moody hue or stick to a crisp pale shade, adding plenty of light sources is key to keeping the room from feeling dark and claustrophobic. “Decorative overhead lighting like a pendant or chandelier (instead of ceiling cans), bedside table lamps, a floor lamp, and even reading sconces will add to the ambience,” he says. “Like Andy Warhol said, 'I believe in low lights and trick mirrors.'"
"I know people think it’s calming and minimalism is all the rage now, but I don’t think I could sleep in an all-white room," says Humphrey. "I generally like cooler colors in a bedroom, though—blues and grays as opposed to warm tones. Black and white always works and can be a good foundation (like in a patterned area rug) to layer in some color. I think everyone would be a little happier if they had some pops of color in their bedrooms."
A smaller space doesn’t mean smaller furniture. “One of my pet peeves is miniature bedside tables. Especially next to a larger bed frame and mattress—tiny nightstands can look so dorky,” says Humphrey, who advises his clients to buy normal-size furnishings for small spaces. “It can actually make a small room look bigger and will be more useful and functional,” he adds. Humphrey also picks pieces that can do double duty and makes room for essential pieces. “In my own (small) bedroom I don’t have room for a dresser, so I have large nightstands with drawers that hold my clothes,” he says. “And even if it’s a tight fit, I always want at least a small chair in the corner (dining size can work in a pinch) or bench at the end of the bed as a catchall for clothes, pillows, or whatever garments get flung around before bed.”
“Hanging drapery as close to the ceiling as possible is a design trick that actually works,” Humphrey says. “It’ll bring the eye up. While we’re at it, a good trick for picking curtains is to match the fabric to the wall color. It’s modern and can be nice in a smaller space, because your eye won’t be distracted by contrasting colors.”
All the square footage in the world won’t make a difference if it’s crowded with stuff. “Another trick that won’t cost you any money is to keep your room clean,” he says. “You can still accessorize like you would a larger room, but keeping out the unnecessary clutter is a no-brainer.”
Humphrey advocates mixing it up when it comes to scale. “I also like to use the largest area rug that will fit,” he says. “A canopy bed can be a cool juxtaposition in a small room. It’s unexpected, and playing with scale (big bed, small room) can be a fun way to stick it to the design purists.”
Don’t forget to add some life to your space. “There’s no reason houseplants should be kept out of the bedroom—I’ve even used potted indoor trees in small rooms,” he says. “Having something vertical like a fig tree can bring the eye up. Plants can make a stuffy room feel fresh, too.”
A girl’s bedroom is her safe haven. Between school crushes, too much homework, and sleepovers, a girl needs a place to relax, create, and hang out in. That’s why it’s important to design a space for her that not only reflects her vibrant personality, but also exudes positive energy. Focusing on bright colours and functionality, here are some of the best modern girls bedroom designs for girls of all ages:
The pre-teen years for young girls can be tough–that’s why we love the bright and happy positive vibes of this bedroom. Sea foam blue, peachy tones, white, and green create the perfect summery palette for a young girl. With a lot of colour and prints going on, keep things balanced and simple by focusing a busy wallpaper on only one wall, leaving the remaining walls a crisp white.
For a contemporary girl, a swirly colourful rug reminiscent of the ’90’s and modern minimalistic furniture make a great combination. While the crisp charcoal window frames give this room a more forward adult look, the coloured glass chandeliers adds a gentle punch of youth back into the space.
Install an elegant canopy with a creamy fabric and gentle line of roses to make her feel like the princess she is. We love that this designer has opted for a pale shade of pink rather than bubble gum or hot pink for an effect that’s sweet but not overdone.
Offset your typical pink with a strong and bold colour like navy blue. This space was inspired by and reflects a young girl’s sweet and energetic personality. We also love how the designer makes multiple fun patterns such as a striped blanket, a tree printed wall paper, graphic lamp shades, swirling rose pillow and white bubble drawers work well together by keeping colours unified.
For the modern fashion forward teen girl, she’ll feel like the ultimate fashionista with mature shades of beige and cream complimented by fierce accents like hot pink and orange. Incorporate elegant pieces like a white plush foot stool, soft curtains, and a mirrored dresser.
For a cottage chic toddler room, match floral textiles, wood flooring, and cute trinkets around an old window sill. DIY craft projects are also great design ideas for this style–like a homemade dream catcher and 3D paper balls strung around the window.
Create the ultimate doll playhouse by building one over and around the bed. Go all out with a ruffled bed skirt and layered curtains. Stuffed animal friends are important to young kids so make sure there’s a special spot for every one of her fury friends by incorporating a display shelf into the room as well!
Scrap the pinks and purples and go bright with bold summery teal walls, crisp white, yellow, and orange. Notice how multiple patterns including checkers, chevron, and floral are present in the space but don’t overwhelm each other. Accomplish this by ensuring there’s lots of solid space between each pattern such as a solid coloured wall that breaks between the checkered headboards and floral wall piece.
Some teens insist on dark and moody colour schemes reflective of this precarious period of their lives. Embrace it by steering them towards a chicer look by combining dark tones with some primary brights and crisp white. Black walls can work for both you and your teen if you’ve got a well lit room and lighter accents like cheerful sunflowers and eye catching wall art.
Here’s another take on the fashion forward bedroom for a young girl. Staple pieces for a fashion inspired room include a mannequin bodice for styling outfits and a bulletin board for her to pin up ideas and drawings. Create a space where she can work, create, and feel inspired.
For a girl who’s outgrown dolls and pink decor, this bedroom design is a great model for a more sophisticated look but still remains vibrant. Pick one element of the room like the bedding here to be the centre of attention and base the rest of your decor around this. Darker furniture, neutral walls, and elegant accents like glass vases and lamps add an appropriate amount of elegant maturity, but the bed and curtains still keep it youthful and fun.
Teenage girls’ room decorating ideas generally differ from those of boys. When decorating a teen girl’s bedroom, consider making it fit for a princess; after all, her room is her castle. Here are 25 ideas for teenage girls’ rooms.
Some are more serious; others feature familiar (and popular) pink, orange and red schemes. All of the rooms are practical, featuring workspaces, bookcases or shelving systems, and beautiful cabinets especially designed for teenage girls. Finally, a mirror is a mandatory item in any girl’s bedroom, so you will notice that mirrors have a special status in some of the photos below.
Soft pinks and warm pine are a traditional but winning combination for a little girl's room. We love the assortment of knick-knacks on the walls and the traditional toy chest, too.
An elegant iron daybed provides a spot for reading in the day as well as a place to sleep at night. The colourful, characterful textiles and soft toys hung from the bed and walls keep it young and fun.
"Think Pink!" as the old song from the Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire film Funny Face goes. Pair a pink themed girls' room with sturdy woods and sheer fabrics for a kid-friendly look that's still stylish.
Little girls love a sleepover and a bunk bed is the most space-economising option. Choosing one with extra storage solutions will be invaluable too.
Nurture the art lover in your teen by decorating their bedroom walls with prints they've picked. If their room is already a technicolour dream, pick a portrait that incorporates as many of the colours as possible to tie the room together.
A black and white colour scheme isn't usually associated with kids' rooms but, if your daughter's not a girly-girl, a monochrome palette, accessorised with bright hues in green or red, is a great alternative to pinks.
Bring out the dancing queen in your daughter with a fun glitter ball and colourful paper chains. A sturdy bunk bed anchors the room to keep the look luxe.
Your children are only young once so create a magical environment with furnishings and accessories that will kick start their imaginations. Curtained cubby hole bunkbeds are also a perfect way to give kids their own space.
Whether it's dolls, crafts or trophies, proudly display your little girl's most treasured possessions with hooks or shelving around the room's perimeter.
