Eastern Accents

1. Choosing a headboard that’s too small. Instead, go big. It’s counterintuitive but it looks better to place a large or dramatically oversized headboard in a small bedroom. It makes use of the vertical space on the wall and creates a focal point, distracting from the size of the room. Just be sure to keep it balanced by using minimal pieces throughout the space.

2. Choosing single purpose furniture. Instead, think beyond the intended use. When pieces have more than one use it doubles the functionality of your room without taking up extra space. It also eliminates the urge to over furnish the room. For example, a drop leaf table serves as a unique nightstand that doubles as a small writing desk when needed.

3. Failing to sneak in extra storage. Instead, choose smart designs. There are many ways to do this but one of our favorites is with a storage bench, Not only does it provide a place to keep necessary items out of sight but within reach, it also serves as a place to sit if there’s no space for a chair.


Yes, you can have a small bedroom that’s beautiful, functional, and comfortable which is what every bedroom should be. Just avoid these three common mistakes and don’t be afraid to get creative.
