Choosing a bedroom set for a small bedroom
If in your house or apartment a small room is set aside for the bedroom, then choosing a furniture set will be a daunting task. After all, a bedroom is exactly the place where people rest their mind and body after difficult working days, and how comfortable and comfortable a person is during a night's rest depends on his mood and good spirits throughout the entire working day. Bedroom set for a small bedroom should be selected as carefully as possible.
Design of a small room
Even before you are ready to buy a bedroom set for your cozy “nest”, you need to think about the design of the room, which will allow at least visually expand the space of a small room. For this, it is better to paste the walls of the room with frosted wallpaper of light colors or plaster, also choosing neutral pastel colors.
This design will visually expand the boundaries of the room.
Visually increasing the space of small rooms is possible by observing the basic rules for the design of the window opening. It should be remembered that in such rooms it is unacceptable to hang on the windows thick night curtains of dark and too bright shades. The best option is to use Roman air curtains sewn from light translucent light-colored fabrics.
To protect your night's sleep from too bright street lights, you can also put shutters to be used only at night.
Another "trick" that allows you to visually increase the space - suitable for this lighting. It is extremely undesirable to use a large chandelier or lampshade located in the center of the ceiling in small rooms, since they visually make it lower, hopelessly concealing centimeters of precious space. The optimal solution for lighting a compact room are point sources of light embedded around the perimeter of the ceiling and walls.
Such multi-level lighting creates a feeling of spaciousness in the interior and makes it lighter and more comfortable.
In a small bedroom you need to carefully consider the elements of decor. Of course, you should not completely abandon the nice-looking accessories and wall decorations, but it is still better to restrict yourself to small objects. It can be watercolor landscapes or family photos in narrow wooden or metal frames.
You should not decorate the walls of a small room with stucco or cumbersome paintings.
Competently selected textiles (preferably monophonic, without bright colors and variegated patterns) will also slightly increase the space.
Choice of furniture
When choosing a bedroom suite, you need to focus on the pre-designed design of your room. It also can not do without little tricks.

Remember that the size of the bedroom is very important. Here you also have to focus on the square meters of the room. The main piece of furniture in any bedroom is, of course, the bed. If your bedroom is just tiny, then too big bed will look completely ridiculous in it.
If you just need a double bed in the bedroom, then it is better to put it on a small stage, under which you can arrange convenient boxes for storing bed linen.This will be the best option if you have little space to accommodate a large linen closet or chest of drawers.
For a small room, it's better to choose a classic bed model, without bulky headboard and frilly details, made of natural wood, natural color. Exotic and too bright items in the furniture set will attract attention and visually reduce the space of your small room.
If you choose a headset, which includes bedside tables, then pay attention to the fact that they always had legs. If necessary, you can easily move them around the room during cleaning. If the size of the room does not allow placing a cabinet or dressing table in it, you can give them the function of a long shelf, placing it at the head of the bed.
If the area of the room allows, then you can place in it a high wardrobe with narrow mirror facades, it will also help to visually enlarge the space. You can choose to buy a headset with corner cabinets, which do not take up too much space - and at the same time have good capacity.
