A room overcrowded with furniture and accessories can feel disorganized and cluttered. Remove the unnecessary piece of furniture from the room and you will be amazed to see the difference. It will give you the more space needed.

 2) Choose furniture of the appropriate size.

When you are shopping for furniture for your bedroom, be realistic and choose furniture for the appropriate choice for your bedroom. As wonderful as king size bed may sound, if you have a small room, the bed will take over the room, making it feel out of proportion to your room, plus it will make circulation on around the room more difficult. Instead, opt for queen size bed or customize bed.

 3) Add a mirror adjacent to the wall.


  Add the mirror to the wall in your bedroom. This will add more light to the room as the mirror will bounce the light around. This will make your room feel bigger.

5) Dress the windows.


Window dressings are much more important than block lights in your room. Choose curtains that are appropriate for your room. Even if you have short windows consider hanging curtains that drop all the way to the floor, they will look elegant to your design.
