Working With Small Spaces

If you are having trouble deciding where to start with the renovation of your home, you can find a contractor who can give you a few suggestions. When the contractor is looking over the home, he can offer an idea of costs associated with the project and the materials that would be needed so that you can make an informed decision of whether you want to use a company for the entire job or if you want to tackle some of the work on your own.

One of the areas you can start with in the home is the bedroom. Most larger bedrooms are easy to renovate as they give you an open slate to work with, but a smaller room might give the impression that nothing can really be done to it except painting the walls and changing the flooring before adding a few new decorations. If you don’t mind bright colors, then you want to include them with the remodeling project in the smaller bedroom. Lighter walls will open the space along with colors that include light blue, mint green and yellow.

If you’re really stretched for space in the bedroom, consider installing a Murphy bed so that you can focus more on the furniture that you add. This is an option if you live in an apartment or if you have a small room where guests would spend the night. Try to make any small room as open and airy as possible. Flowing curtains on the window expand into the room when a breeze blows through. A floor in colors of cream or tan will give a larger look along with blankets of the same color on the bed.

An easy way to renovate a smaller bedroom to make it seem larger is to add mirrors. A large mirror on one wall or smaller mirrors above nightstands beside the bed can give an open look even if there’s nothing but a bed and a dresser in the room. Cozy materials also work well in a smaller bedroom, such as plush blankets. These also add texture to the space.
