20 Smart Ideas How to Make Small Bedroom Look Bigger


It doesn’t matter how small your bedroom is. If you are ready to put in some time and heart into making your small bedroom look bigger, you will. Welcome to Jansen’s DIY and here are 20 Smart Ideas to Make Your Small Bedroom Looks Bigger. #1. This is essential to note down if you are willing to make your small bedroom look bigger. Do not paint your room with dark colours such as black or red. By using a dark paint, you will allow the paint to absorb light. Go for lighter tones such as light blue or off white. They will keep your mood lighter and provide a more fresh and airy experience. #2. Get rid of all the furniture items that you don’t need. There are numerous times when we walk past the furniture shop and think how that dresser is something we really need when in fact our closets at home are half empty. Do not clutter your bedroom. Think again whether you need that extra side table or not. It is always nice to have more things but in fact they are just taking up space and increasing your clean up duty. #3. Since your room is small and you are getting rid of all the useless items, you might try having just one bold wall art instead of numerous photos. That one bold art wall will bring attention to the wall and avoid cluttering. #4. If you want your small bedroom appear bigger, go for low heighted furniture. It is always a decent idea to stay away from tables that are too tall for your small bedroom. Keeping low to the ground will make the ceiling appear cleaner and wider. You can also try using a mattress since a mattress can be easily placed inside the closet when not in use. This will create a lot of space when you are not sleeping. By keeping the bed on the ground, you help the celling look more specious. #5. Just because you like to have lamps, does not mean you buy one with the biggest frame. Small decent table lamps will work just fine. Instead of having floor lamps, get table lamps. This will save up floor space for you. #6. Have you tried transparent furniture before If you haven’t yet, you should give it a go. Just the way you should keep the walls a lighter colour, keep your furniture not too dark or bulky. Yes, it will take almost the same amount of space, but the trick is that it will allow your eye to keep moving. You can also try lucite chairs and acrylic which are budget friendly and easy to customize. #7. The headboard behind our bed hardly comes in use. Remove the headboard and add shelves around your bed. The shelving doubles the amount of space you have in your small bedroom. You can also have built-in shelf panels around the bed. This will create the illusion of depth in the wall which you can use to place books, keys, photo frames, etc. #8. Mirrors are essential if you want your room look bigger and spacious. In fact, you should avoid having a dressing table and instead get a mirror on the back of your closet. This will save up a lot of space. In small bedrooms, it is a better idea to get hang mirrors instead of photo frames. The mirrors will add to the aesthetics of your small bedroom and also proved useful. #9. As mentioned before there is no need to get furniture pieces you don’t need. If your room is small and your need space, get foldable furniture. Foldable furniture is great as they provide you the facility and can be stacked under the bed or to a corner later. For small areas it is a great idea to have dining tables that are small and compact. Moreover, if you don’t get a lot of guests, you can skip the idea of a dining table or one with more than 2 chairs. #10. Yes, the length of your drapes is important. When getting curtains for your small bedroom, don’t just pay special attention to the colour of the drapes, but also make sure they don’t touch the floor. The principle behind this is that letting your drapes touch the floor stops the flow of the room. The same goes for furniture where you should let the legs show. Allow the eye to move by keeping the drapes shorter and legs of the furniture visible. Tie them up nicely so that the room feels airy by ventilation from the room. #11. Probably the best and the most accurate thing to carry out with your small bedroom. Know that by adding a lot of things you are not causing clutter. Avoid unnecessary items and decorations that will only make you feel suffocated. #12. A small bedroom will obviously have smaller windows. By having wider and higher drapes you are basically helping yourself feel like the window is large in scale. Mount your drapes over the window frames and let them fall. Take ropes to tie them up nice. #13. The bedsheet and quilt you use in your bedroom should not have sharp colours or patterns. Since the bed in your room is the largest furniture in sight, keep the colour of the sheet light. Lighter and brighter colours always help lift the mood too. #14. Consider your room a painting or a drawing where you have limited space. You need to adopt the right movement, whether horizontal or vertical. If your windows have vertical lines on it, get the dresser with vertical patterns. Don’t break the flow #15. This a pro tip that should not be limited to your bedroom. A room that is well managed and organized is always better than a cluttered room. Keep your clothes in the drawer, pens in the jar, jewellery in its box. Leaving the floor clean and the bed made is the first thing that you can do to make your small bedroom look bigger and better. #16. A small bedroom does not need to have all the furniture pieces small. However, the thing to note here is that the scale you follow for your bed must be the same for your side table and dresser. Give your room a sense of unity so that all the furniture pieces stay in harmony with each other. #17. The colour of your trim should be lighter than the wall. You might have not heard about it before, but it’s true. The lighter wall paint on the trim will reflect more light, thus, more light will be available to reflect off the wall of the small bedroom. #18. The colour for your room should make sense. The colour you paint your wall should at least have some connection with your rug and furniture. Visual coherence is an important thing to master. Choose one colour scheme and play around with it by using similar tints and shades for the rest of your items. #19. Many of us are not aware of this trick. The think about transparent furniture pieces is that it tricks the brain into keeping the eye moving resulting into creating space for illusion. Try keeping a translucent chair in front of the desk and it might not even feel like it’s there! #20. This trick is an obvious one but most of us fail to understand it. The perception of space can be created by making the right use of it. Avoid having furniture that is too large and always buy a sofa with legs. If you can, purchase a chair rather than a bulky sofa. Also buy furniture that gives more than one purpose, like a bed with drawers in the bottom for additional space.

  1. Interesting and informative videos with irritatingly wooden narrator, stilted phrasing and somewhat stupid suggestions when the idea speaks for itself.

  2. Well looks like everyone that commented were a lil dissatisfied so I'll just keep quite…."NO COMMENT!"

  3. You just said no multiple photo-frames , then you say turn your headboard into a space to put photo frames and.. more clutter 🤔

  4. Great ideas for making a small bedroom look bigger. I especially liked the idea where you replace bed headboard with shelves and side panels. Looking forward to applying some of these ideas to my small condo bedroom. Thanks for sharing. https://hayeshomedecor.com/

  5. Not very helpful actually. I don’t have the funds to change my wood furniture for folding furniture. This video assumes you have the rest of the house to clutter with your belongings. It’s not true in my case.

  6. Only things I have in my room is a bookcase, a small twin sized bed, a desk, and a dresser. I can't get rid of anything lol. Also, how does any of this make sense? They keep saying one thing and then saying the opposite is correct?

  7. And then at 1:50 we see a picture with dark walls which we are not supposed to do. At 2:00 again a dark wall. At 2:48 a lot of clutter around the headboard. Worthless video. Stopped watching.

  8. Don’t have dark paint on your walls. Mine have been black and dark pink for 7 years and my moms like no no no we are doing your brothers room first

  9. I find it hilarious that my room is small and basically following the entire opposite of what all the tips say😂

  10. what a bloody annoying voice and the advice is aload of shite .ignore everything she said.totally contradicts herself "have short curtains for flow "next picture" have really long curtains tothe ceiling and tie up with strings"??? jeez

  11. Wow! I haven't seen acrylic items since I was a newlywed in the mid 70's!! I didn't like the acrylic look then but was gifted an acrylic magazine/newspaper holder and used it for quite awhile. Note: It's a magnet for dog hair.

  12. I'm seeing a lot of beds in all kinds of videos where the mattress is directly on a platform. I come from the ole "mattress/box springs/metal frame w/rollers" generation – or at least that's pretty much the way all beds I ever had as a child and purchased as an adult were sold. I can't stand the metal frames on which I've bruised my legs multiple times over the years. Some bed manufacturers act like it's treason to buy a box spring. Rethinking this entire set up. Think I'll ditch the frame and see what a box spring w/mattress feels like first.

  13. the ppl in the comments r so dumb like she showed the pictures to show you how it makes ur room look small

  14. You want light colors. I have sleep problems. I only use my bedroom to sleep. I have light walls, but an black iron bed. Dark eggplant color curtains for no sunlight, and multiple colors of sheets. But my quilts are all but one in the purple family. I think you must feel calm and be around things that make you comfortable! I'm trying to SLEEP in this room!

  15. What’s with all the shade?? The suggestions are actually very nice and real. Commenting as someone who lives in a small apartment and is doing a makeover after living for 2 years

  16. How are table lamps supposed to save floor space when you have to have a table or something to set it on? And also, having your bed on the floor isn't that great for someone who has chronic back problems and/or Vertigo. Getting up out of the floor is always fun with the room is spinning like you are on a merry-go-round.

  17. Ya know you could have cut this down to a list of like 10 things if you would have quit repeating the same crap over and over again….like how many times do we need to hear about clear furniture?

  18. How to make smaller spaces look larger – lite colors, furniture off the floor or on legs so you can visually see the floor, lights on the wall as to not clutter tables, wall hanging side tables/desks/entertainment centers, etc. The french cleat way of hanging furniture on walls leaving floor space open is awesome! I live in a tiny space and have applied all the things I have listed and it makes a world of difference.

  19. in some spaces, painting walls darker colours can make the room seem bigger, especially like dark jewel tones such as green or blue. ignore the slightly aggressive lady in this video and get some paint testers!

  20. Number 4, keep the mattress on the ground to make room look bigger . Ok then, I will just chuck out my bed frame then my bedroom can look like a squatters room and I can also throw out my quilt and use newspaper as a cover . 🙄

  21. Number 9, get a small dining table.😮 wha….it's a bedroom. Why not keep your fridge by the bed (or mattress on the floor) to free up space in your kitchen and make your kitchen look bigger. Or put your cooker in your bedroom to double up as a cupboard when not in use. You could stuff your mattress in it when not cooking.

  22. "Avoid tables to make the ceiling look higher and wider."
    "Try using 'TABLE' lamps instead of floor lamps
    uhhhh? 😂
