Small Bedroom Ideas That Are Big in Style. 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.
Apartment-Size Sofas and Seating. Companies such as West Elm and CB2 have developed a whole range of apartment-size sofas and seating for small-space dwellers, and for good reason: The sofa is usually the most space-consuming furniture piece in a home. Opt for sofas that have a shallower depth, 37 inches or less. Skip oversized, rolled arms — which can waste a foot or more of floor space — and pick a modern, streamlined style with thinner arms. Less arm space also means more seating; in fact, an armless sofa or a one-armed chaise is the ultimate space-saving seating solution.

Showers and Tubs. Though you might not want or even use a bath tub, every home should have one to appease buyers who dream of a spa tub or those with young children (or dogs!). Take advantage of the shower/tub area to define zones in the room and create an accent wall by changing up the tile you use. You’ll want to select a tile that has a water absorption rating of less than 3% (lower than what’s recommended for the floors) and has good traction (a coefficient of friction that’s greater than or equal to .60). If you’re debating between an open or closed shower take a look at our pros and cons to help make your decision.
Since the shades in your interior will tend to blend together, texture and pattern are the easiest, and often one of the cheapest, ways to add visual interest. In fact, while too many patterns are usually a design no-no, monochrome is an occasion in which you can let your mixing-and-matching skills run wild.
Lighting Effect A simple DIY project that makes a big impact in a painted bedroom is a wall dimmer switch. Dimmers are inexpensive and help create the right lighting according to your mood. The ability to brighten or dim a light on command is especially helpful if you’ve selected to paint your bedroom walls in a bold color.
Metallic Wall Paint. If your room is naturally dark, metallic paints add a warm sheen to your walls. They require several coats to apply but are worth the final effect. Both Ralph Lauren and Sherwin Williams sell easy-to-use metallic paints in a variety of colors. The wall in the image below is painted in a metallic steel paint color.
Table and Wine Display. Designed by talented woodworker Vincent Chicone for Chicone Cabinetmakers, Don Vino Table was inspired by the oak barrels from the cellars in Finger Lakes, New York, a region famous for its wineries. The table blends tradition with contemporaneity and allows its owner to elegantly display 16 of the best wines in the house.
When starting a bathroom remodeling project think about utility as well as design. Bathrooms are often difficult jobs because multiple components must be arranged to fit–and function–in a small space. There’s also multiple water elements so doing the project correctly, from plumbing to ventilation, is imperative.
Some of the most important things to keep in mind when considering different bathroom remodeling ideas are choosing materials that are easy to maintain, maximizing energy efficiency and focusing on brightness wherever possible.
