How to decorate a small bedroom

You can find many bedroom ideas on how to make a small bedroom look bigger and more spacious. Anna and Clara explain that mirrors have the power to add depth to your bedroom and create the illusion of more space. "It is a wonderful idea to use mirrors in your bedroom décor," says Clara. "It makes the bedroom appear larger than it is". You might want to decorate your bedroom with a large full-length mirror.

Mirrors are not the only special element that you can add to a small bedroom. Anna and Clara explain that paint and wallpaper also have the power of creating depth in a small room. By painting or wallpapering one or more walls, you can fill your bedroom with tranquility and create the perfect atmosphere for a good night's sleep.

You can, just like Anna, decorate your bedroom by wallpapering the bedroom walls. If you have a small bedroom, you can choose to paint or add wallpaper to only one wall.  “This will create a sense of depth in your bedroom,” Clara explains.

A beautiful folding screen

As part of Clara’s bedroom interior design, you find a folding screen adorning the room. Clara primarily uses it as a dressing screen, however, it serves many practical and decorative uses. Try using a folding screen to partition your bedroom or another large room and create different spaces. Simply let your creativity flow. Anna recommends keeping the room’s colour palette in mind, when choosing wallpaper. “Choose colours that complement each other,” Anna says. If your bedroom has a more neutral-colour, you can choose a colourful wallpaper.

Evocative bedroom décor

In interaction with colours and bedroom furniture, lighting has an influence on the bedroom’s atmosphere. Whether you are looking for pendant lights, wall lamps, or table lamps, the possibilities are endless. “It all depends on your preferred interior style,” Clara says. "You should consider whether you want to create the perfect lighting for reading, dressing, resting, or something else." Anna has placed a decorative rug in front of her bedroom mirror. “The wonderfully soft rug brings ‘hygge’ and personality to the bedroom, and it covers the cold wooden floors,” Anna assures. Have you considered adding a rug to your bedroom?

Bedroom lighting

The right lighting for your bedroom depends on the room. A large bedroom benefits from more lighting and bigger lighting fixtures, whereas a small bedroom needs less lighting to keep it from becoming too bright. The type of ceiling also comes into play. A high ceiling is perfect for pendant lights, but recessed lights are a better choice for lower ceilings, so you do not have anything hanging in the way. Anna and Clara find a small light on the bedside table or above the bed an important addition to the room. Both sisters enjoy reading before going to sleep, wherefore having a lamp next to the bed is a must.

Besides bringing joy to your bedroom, plants bring a breath of fresh air into your home. “Some bedroom plants improve your sleep,” Clara explains, while watering her bedroom plants and flowers.

The right plants

The sisters are particularly fond of their Sunday strolls, where they go to get new plants for their bedrooms. From the start, the sisters quickly discovered that plants come in all sorts of different sizes, shapes and colours. The large variety of plants often makes it difficult for Anna to decide on just a few.

One day, when Anna and Clara went to the local plant market, Anna had, after 2 hours, yet to decide which plants to bring home. Clara eventually found it necessary to rush Anna, as the plant market was closing. The sisters brought home these lovely bedroom plants, among others:

  • Lavender
  • Succulents
  • Orchids
  • English Ivy

Green bedroom ideas

There are many wonderful bedroom ideas out there, and Anna and Clara are always exploring new ways of incorporating flowers and plants in the bedroom décor. On one of the sisters’ many travels, Anna became acquainted with coconuts. “What a lovely shape it has. It would make for a divine and decorative flower pot,” Anna thought to herself. When Anna returned home, she removed the fruit from the shell, cleaned it properly, and filled the coconut pot with a beautiful, green plant. “Bring all of the room into play by hanging plants from the ceiling and create an enchanting bedroom,” Anna kindly suggests. With bamboo skewers and ceramic pearls, you can easily create decorative ornaments for air plants in the bedroom.

The sisters have many ideas on how to decorate your bedroom with plants. If you have small plants or vases with flowers, the sisters suggest placing your lovely bedroom plants on the bedside table, dresser or window sill. If you have large floor plants or trees, you can easily place them in a corner next to a full-length mirror.

"Plant them in lovely pots," Clara suggests. Larger plants and trees create an exotic atmosphere and look wonderful in any room.

Anna and Clara wish you the best of luck decorating your bedroom.
