66 Smart Narrow Bedroom Decor Ideas

Smart Narrow Bedroom Decor Ideas cover

Small and especially narrow rooms are difficult to decorate and furnish as they can’t accommodate a lot of furniture, much decor and need very effective storage solutions. A narrow bedroom is extremely difficult to style: extra-long walls on two sides can feel endless and may lack visual interest, it seems that there’s no space for a nightstand or a bedside lamp, no big bed can be placed here and so on. Still, there are some ways to make your narrow bedroom comfortable, stylish and welcoming, and we’ve gathered the most useful tips for that.

Play With Color

Paint both of your smaller walls a darker shade than the longer ones. These painted walls will appear as if they are coming closer, and the room will feel more square and proportional instead of the narrow rectangle it actually is. Such a solution will make it cozier and more welcoming.

Optimize The Storage

The bed and the space underneath is your secret weapon in terms of maximizing storage space in a narrow room. Investing in a bed that comes equipped with storage drawers can do wonders in terms of clearing out clutter and helping you get organized. You can also simply purchase some storage bins to slide under an existing bed frame if it’s high enough. Also consider getting tiered nightstands or nightstands with additional shelves, go for wall-mounted shelves, and even pendant planters will save you a bit more space.

Choose Clever Nightstands

If there’s literally no space for a nightstand, you may use a windowsill, make a tiny floating shelf or just a storage headboard and attach some sconces to the wall. A stool or a nightstand can also double as a nightstand, and it will look great.

Go For Gallery Walls

Break up long walls with clusters of artwork or decor to create visual interest. However, you’ll want to avoid installing a series of frames hung side by side that are all the same color, size, and material in favor of a more well-collected look.
