*Use window treatments to bring the windows up and give the illusion of height. Hang curtain rods at least 12-16" above the window and use light and flowy fabric for a soft romantic look. Heavy and dark draperies will bring the walls in and contribute to a smaller appearance.
*Choose paint colors that will reflect light and work well within your space. In this small townhouse bedroom, we used Benjamin Moore's Algonquin Trail (#1055). It works great with blues/reds/greens, and provides a great backdrop for a variety of styles without darkening the room.
*Place furniture in alcoves or at an angle for added interest in a small boxy room. Find a bed frame with ample room underneath for added storage. Add side tables with storage, and lamps for great ambient lighting.
*Find a floor mirror and place it on an empty wall for the illusion of space. Place a floor lamp next to it for added light reflection. This is a great way to make a room look bigger without adding additional bulky furniture.
*If you have hardwood floors, find a great patterned rug to add interest to the floor. Place at an angle to the furniture.
*Add wall shelves for storage. Situate books/accessories nicely on the shelves so they are points of interest rather than just a bookshelf. Keep clutter to a minimum by maximizing your closet space with baskets/shelves.
Use these tips to create an amazing bedroom that you will look forward to spending time in every evening.
