Having a small bedroom can make decorating tricky. The wrong paint colors or a couple of over sized pieces can instantly make a tiny room seem even smaller and make you feel that much more uncomfortable. The good news is that with a simple decorating trick, you can stop suffering from an overcrowded space. All you need is a well-placed mirror to open up your bedroom and make it appear larger and less cramped.
Mirrors help you look your best in the morning before heading to work, but they can also be used to do so much more. When strategically placed, mirrors can be used to reflect light and create the illusion of depth, which then tricks the eye into thinking a room is larger and more open than it really is.
Where you choose to set or hang a mirror will determine how much impact it has on your bedroom’s appearance. If you have a decent-size window, place a mirror on an opposite wall so that it reflects the natural light coming into the room. If your windows are small, then hang a mirror behind a lamp for the same effect. The more light that fills your room, the more open and airy it will seem. That’s why it is also recommended that people who have small bedrooms paint their walls lighter colors.
If you don’t have space in your bedroom for a floor length mirror, you can also group smaller, more decorative mirrors together and hang them on the wall. This is a great idea if you want to add some visual interest to your space. To create a unique look, group a mix of different shapes and color mirrors.
No one should feel cramped or uncomfortable in their own bedroom. If you’re living in a small space, try using a mirror to reflect light and add the illusion of depth. You’ll be amazed how much impact this simple trick can have on your space.
