You can find some small space decorating tips here, which you can use in most rooms, but if you want exclusive tips on how to decorate a small bedroom, then read on…

How To Decorate a Small Bedroom: Lighting

I’m sure you have some sort of lighting up on your ceiling, whether it’s a chandelier or recessed lights, but let me tell you, you’ll need more lighting than that.  Especially if you like to read in bed. Maybe you are thinking a table lamp or a floor lamp, but why keep taking up that golden floor space of yours when you can go vertical and use your wall space?  Hello wall lamps or better known as wall sconces!

Yep you heard right!

Don’t worry if you don’t have any electrical wiring to connect these suckers because you can go with the plug-able type, which are way cheaper anyways.  No contractors or electricians needed here!

How To Decorate a Small Bedroom: Don’t Make That Bed an Eye Sore

The bed is usually the focal point of the bedroom – what people see first when they walk into a bedroom.  It’s already a show stopper, so there’s no need to glamorize it even more.  What do I mean?  Avoid huge beds like a four poster bed or a sleigh bed.  Your best bet would be to keep it simple and go with a nice headboard like these simple DIY headboard ideas.  Footboards are no bueno for a small bedroom.  They take up too much space.

How To Decorate a Small Bedroom: Nightstand or Maybe Not?

Nightstands are a must for keeping things close to your bed, but they don’t always fit well in small bedrooms.  How about using some shelving instead?  Not into shelving?  Then go with a couple of simple floating boxes and screw them on your wall.  Stools are another choice.  They are perfect because they are narrow, giving you just enough room for the essentials.
