It may boil down to a few decorating mistakes designers always notice when walking into clients’ bedrooms. From ignoring clutter to failing to address mood lighting, these small errors can have a huge impact on the overall look and feel of a room. We tapped some of the best interior designers in the industry to share the mistakes to avoid at all cost in bedroom designs. Are you guilty of these decorating faux pas?
Designers often advocate for incorporating storage under the bed and using built-in pieces as classic space-saving solutions. But there are many more ways you can make your small bedroom not only functional but also chic. We offer seven small-space problem-solvers that can help you create a functional haven — without sacrificing style.
For interior designer Tim Campbell, there is more to a bedroom than just overhead lighting—reading lights are also essential: ”Add indirect and task lighting that keeps the glare of light away from the eye,” he says.
Mirrors are your best friend in a small bedroom. A medium to large mirror can be placed just about anywhere — there are no strict rules. You might try one above the headboard or your floating dresser, on a wall that faces the bed, or as part of a mirrored closet door. The mirror will not only make the room appear larger, but it also will reflect whatever natural light you have.
The bedroom is about sleeping. What do you need when you’re sleeping? Not a smartphone, says designer Aurélien Gallet. And that goes for a television as well. As a result, you’ll get more restful sleep, plus more room for furniture and accessories you love. (This gorgeous bedroom in Amanda Seyfried’s Catskills getaway is proof.)
The designers at Massucco Warner Miller also suggest paying special attention to the headboard: ”There’s no reason for boxy beige headboards. Do an offbeat fabric on your headboard, or choose an unusual shape.” The headboard covers such an important portion of the space and should be treated as such. ”If an off-the-shelf headboard has uninspiring fabric options, have it recovered just like you would a chair—and don’t hold back with color!”
