Whether it’s your master bedroom or a guest room, in a condo unit or single-detached house, what can you do to make any bedroom feel bigger and even more luxurious? The interior designers at a nearby Franklin furniture store, The Linen Duck, share their tried and tested tips.

Q: What furniture options are great for small bedrooms?

A: A Scaled-down bedroom furniture will open up the room. Small doesn’t have to be boring, though; the key to keeping the room interesting is choosing specific furniture pieces from furniture stores that add character even in small packages.

Create visual height by pairing a small bed with extra tall custom headboards upholstered in beautiful fabrics; you can also add floor-length curtains to your bedroom. Floating shelves can be a great way to add walking space.

Q: How can mirrors be used to a small bedroom’s advantage?

A: When you add a mirror near a light source, especially a window, the mirror reflects the light and creates the illusion of space and airiness. If you have used smaller bedside tables, tall narrow mirrors over them will add drama to this side of the room.

Bare walls are great locations for a large mirror or a series of mirrors.

Q: What color schemes and prints create the illusion of a bigger bedroom?

A: A monochromatic color scheme is an excellent choice if you want to make a bedroom look spacious. Instead of bold prints, try using textured fabrics such as luxurious velvets, flannels, or slubby linen in solid colors. Add trims and tapes to pillows and curtains to spice things up.

Pro Tip: One can never go wrong with an all-white bedroom. It always looks fresh and airy. We have many options for the all-white look at our furniture store.

Q: How could small bedrooms benefit from lighting fixtures?

A: Large lamps may not work in a small bedroom as these can be clunky. An alternative would be adding sconces or pendant lighting over the bedside tables. If you are not ready for additional electrical work, there are wall sconces that can plug right into your existing outlets.
