So, your bedroom has enough room for your bed and little else? Urban living often presents such situations where the bed takes up all the space in the room. Does it mean that you have to give up on all your décor dreams? Or that you have to wrack your brains about how to meet other bedroom needs? Not at all!  
Here are some creative and decorative ways to face the challenge of a large bed in a small room. Let’s show you what to do when your bed takes up the whole room. 
Start with the color palette 
Choose a neutral-colored bedding or one that blends with the room surroundings. This helps to visually balance the room, and you don’t just see or feel that your bed is the only object in the room. 
Add some height to your bed 
A bed that is elevated on thin legs, shows more of the floor space and walls. This makes the room space appear larger. You can also choose bunk beds. They come in quite trendy designs and offer storage solutions too without taking up floor space. 
Put a spotlight on the floor space 
Make your flooring bold and distinct with patterned tiles, carpeting, or rugs to make it distinct. This will distract from the bed and make it look more expansive. 
Toss unnecessary furniture 
The bed is important for the bedroom, the others, not so much. Get rid of nightstands, dressers, desk, bean bags, loveseats, etc. Use windowsills to perch your essential stuff or go for floating nightstands. Opt for rugs and cushions for extra seating. 
Adjust the mattress size 
Did you know that you can also bring your mattress one size down so that visually the bed takes up less space? 
You can pick from the best mattresses online that offer the best of both worlds: The dreamy comfort of plush memory foam and the correct size that won’t overwhelm your room. Plus, the right mattress makes every bed enjoyable, no matter the size of the room! 
Lights, plants, shelves—hang them all 
With floor space at a premium after the bed takes the lion’s share, clear out the floor lamps and potted plants. Instead, choose light fixtures such as sconces, pendants, etc. The ideal bedroom light has a swinging arm that can be directed at the job at hand or upwards too. Similarly, hang planters from walls and ceiling rafts or hooks. 
Think vertical in terms of mirrors and storage too. Affix wall-mounted shelves, even a nightstand or a small writing surface. Use décor to serve double purposes of beauty and utility. 
Pro tip: Hang your curtains as high as possible to bring the illusion of taller space in the room.  
Let your bed multitask 
Invest in cushions and mattress that can transform into a daybed for lounging as well as working. Portable laptop tables can stand in for missing desks.  
Limited space in the room after installing the bed does not kill your décor options. Just follow these ideas to have a vibrant and visually appealing room. Remember your bed is the highlight of the bedroom, everything else should be arranged according to it.
