Create A Larger Looking Master Bedroom

If you are furnishing a small master bedroom, then there are some things you can do to get the most out of the space that you do have and to help make the bedroom appear larger than it is. Here are some of the different steps that you can take to help you have the master bedroom you will be very happy with.

Paint the walls to add the appearance of more space

You want to keep the ceiling white or the lightest shade in the room. If you paint the ceiling a darker shade, then it can cause the room to seem shorter and this coupled with an already small room can really make you feel cramped. You can also help the room to look more spacious by painting the walls that are further from each other a lighter color to make the space between them look even longer. Try to stay completely away from dark colors in small rooms and stick to lights to mediums only. If you want to incorporate some dark colors, then you can paint embellishments on the walls or use darker colors for the trim.

Hang a large mirror

Choose a wall in the master bedroom and make a large mirror become the centerpiece for that wall. This will give the wall some décor that will also serve as a great way to make the bedroom feel bigger. Plus, the mirror will be very functional in your bedroom because you will also be able to use it when you are getting ready for the day, or any other time you want to see how you look. It's important to make sure you have the large mirror installed where it is supported by studs. Otherwise, it will be so heavy that it can damage the wall and fall.

Get a captain's bed

You can purchase a captain's bed in any regular bed size. The bed has drawers under the mattress that can allow you to have more room for your clothing or other items without the need for such a large dresser that will end up taking up more of your master bedroom's floor space. When you use a captain's bed you may even be able to use a tallboy dresser in the bedroom instead of a larger, longer one. Keep in mind, this will also add to your free floor space to help keep the room feeling and looking spacious like you wanted.
