There is a shocking study about Americans spending almost half of their lifetime lying around in bed. That is a tremendous amount of time spent in the bedroom. That is probably a good reason to invest in a comfortable bedroom. But regardless of how accurate that study can be, many people dream of having a massive bedroom. They want to achieve whatever interior design for their space without challenges.
Whether they live that dream or not, they can always choose to make their bedroom live up to its full potential. There are many ways to make even the tiniest room in the world look enormous.

Use the right colors
The colors in a room contribute to how a person perceives its size. So pick a color that is lighter in shade like white, beige, and pastels. By doing so, the room may seem brighter. This can give the illusion of opening up more space. This trick does not limit to the wall paint only, but it applies to the color of the room’s furniture and decor.
Hang shelves near the ceiling
Well, this is for those who like to keep books in their bedroom. By hanging shelves, clutter on the floor can be prevented because they can now have additional organizer above. They are quite easy to install, too; they can even be taught to middle school students online under the subject Domestic Economy.
Having a mirror in the room is one of the best tricks one can use to create an impression of a bigger space. The more mirrors a room has, the bigger the room gets. While full-length mirrors leaning against the wall are great to have, try exploring more creative ways to place them.
Here are some ideas:
Mirrors plus brightness are the best combos to create an illusion of depth and height in any room. It is a classic trick that works every time.
Create storage under the bed
Storage beds are one of the most popular hacks to save space in a tiny bedroom. It has been a common method to save extra space, especially in cities where apartment rents are notoriously high. This can be done in many different styles and can even be DIY-ed by people who love woodwork. Here are some ideas for those who want to make it their DIY project.
The window power
Consider ditching those curtains and just let the window open. Let the sunlight in to bring more brightness to the room. Brightness can create an impression of open space. Apart from that, an opened window draws the eye out to the view outside. So if a bedroom has a charming yard, garden, or any landscape that is appealing to the eye, take advantage of it and open up the window.
For those concerned about privacy, a frosted window film or tint may be a great option. It can provide privacy without blocking the light.
Keep Everything Organized
Sometimes, the only reason why bedrooms look so tiny is that it is full of clutter. Open up some space by getting organized. Get rid of the things that are unwanted, unneeded, and does not serve a purpose anymore.
Here is one excellent way to get organized:
Pick up three boxes and label them “To Keep,” “To Store,” and “Throw Away.”
To Keep – this is for the things that can be used frequently and must go back to their proper spots.
To Store – this is for the things that need to be kept for seasonal use.
Throw Away – obviously, this is for the things that need to go out of your life for good.
If letting go of some stuff is hard to do, the popular KonMari method can be helpful. This is probably the cheapest way to make a room look spacious. A garbage bag is all it takes.
People do not always have things their way, but they can always make the most of what is available in front of them. Sometimes, a little creativity makes all the difference.
