Looking for inspiration on how to decorate your small bedroom? Read our guide below to discover the art of decorating small bedrooms that show that the size of the room is no obstacle when it comes to creating a room you love. Whether you are navigating the challenges of limited space, or simply seeking inspiration for a more intimate room, our blog will provide you with helpful tips and chic design ideas. 


Choose Light Colours

If you want to create the illusion of space in a small bedroom, then opt for light and neutral coloured wallpaper to create a sense of openness. Use mirrors strategically to reflect light and make the room appear larger. Our range of neutral wallpaper will elevate your small bedroom into a stylish sanctuary to retreat to at the end of the day.

Use Wallpaper Behind The Bed

If you love the idea of bedroom wallpaper but don’t want to overpower the room, why not add some wallpaper behind your bed and create a feature wall? Larger patterns can make a bold statement, while smaller patterns or textures may provide a more subtle backdrop. Choosing colours that complement the existing colour scheme in your bedroom is important and will add depth without overwhelming the space.

Think Luxurious

Create an opulent and intimate atmosphere in your small bedroom with a luxurious wallpaper that exudes sophistication and style. Add a sense of depth with rich and regal tones, or go gold to add an element of lavishness to every corner of your bedroom. Complement the wallpaper with velvet throws, satin pillows and metallic-finished furniture to enhance the glamour!

Florals Are In

All That Glitters

If you want to add a statement to your small bedroom, then glitter wallpaper is the way to go. A little bit of sparkle is all you need to add that much needed update to your bedroom. Place some glitter wallpaper to one of your walls and match it up with some complimenting paint and your small bedroom is now a stylish space of your very own. Plus, the shimmer effect will create the illusion of extra light and space in your small bedroom.


When decorating your small bedroom, you can also experiment with the below to find the perfect balance for your small bedroom.


  • Keep It Simple
  • Embrace simplicity in your accessorising to prevent the room from feeling cluttered. Consider a minimalistic approach to your decor and accessories with dual-purpose items that can serve both functional and decorative roles.


  • Save Space With Storage
  • Choose multi-functional furniture with built-in storage, like beds with drawers underneath. Utilise vertical space with tall bookshelves or wall-mounted shelves.


  • Add Mirrors and Lighting
  • Integrating a mirror into your small bedroom will reflect the light and visually expand the room. Mirrored furniture will add a touch of luxury to your room, whilst the reflective surfaces create a stylish and polished look. Pendant lights will free up bedside table space and ambient, accent lighting will create a layered and visually appealing atmosphere.


  • Declutter Regularly
  • Regular decluttering will contribute to both your mental well-being and the organisation of your small bedroom. Sleeping in a clutter-free environment can positively impact your mood and overall well-being too.
