8 practical tips to visually expand a small bedroom cover

Enlarging the actual area of the room is often impossible but changing its visual volume is a real thing. If you want your small bedroom to look bigger, these tips are right what you need.

The Bed Zone

An oversized headboard, a mirror wall, an accent wall or horizontal décor above the headboard are a must for a small bedroom, you can choose any of these features to perfectly match your bedroom style and design. A oversized headboard or an accent wall will withdraw attention from the bed, which often dominates in a small bedroom. A mirror wall or just a mirror covers always visually expands the space, and a horizontal stripe visually broadens it, so these are all very applicable ideas.
