Are you looking for a space-saving bed for a small room? I’ve lived in some small rooms over the years, and one of the biggest challenges is finding a bed that fits in the floor space--yet doesn’t make you feel cramped. This is part of the overall process to pick a comfortable mattress.
A “small space” is generally considered as 1000 square feet (93 square meters) or less. I’ve found that besides picking the right bed in a small room, you also need features like enough walking space around the bed. Let’s take a look at how you can comfortably fit a small bed in a small room.
Small Furniture for Small Apartments and Homes
A Trending Trend
Today more people are deciding to move into small apartments and homes. There are various reasons although one of the main ones is they’re more cost-effective.
Here are some reasons. Consider that the average house price in California's most affordable county (San Francisco County) is about $1.6 million, according to ABC 7. Meanwhile, the USA’s cheapest apartments will still cost about $500 to $550 per month.
This has resulted in sources like furniture companies and bloggers developing game-changing beds and ideas that help to fit the furniture pieces into small spaces. Besides being space-saving, these beds are also comfortable and eye-catching, which also adds extra value to them.
Types of Space-saving Beds
This option is a space saver that frees up space so your kids have more play room. The storage area makes the bed even more space-efficient since you can store even more stuff than a standard walk-in closet.
These units combine a bed with other functions like a dresser, closet, and entertainment center. The bed alone provides many space-saving features. You can make the space even comfier after you find the most comfortable mattress to pair with the all-in-one bed.
This space-saving bed attaches to the wall. Then when you need to sleep or rest, just pull down the bed for some shut-eye. The beds are made in different styles including bunk beds. They’re also a good option for studios and kids’ rooms.
Reading Nook & Bed
This bed is stored inside the wall area so it frees up floor space when not in use. You can also add features like a dresser as another space-saving feature.
This is a classic way to free up space in a small room. You can use drawers underneath the bed for storing items like linens and clothes. This allows the bed to serve the function of a bed, dresser, and closet.
This type of bed hangs from the ceiling. It can be lowered when used and raised when not in use. The feature is a space-saver since it doesn’t take up any floor space. Then when the bed isn’t in use it’s still space-efficient since it’s stored underneath the ceiling.
You can store this bed in spaces like behind a bookshelf. Storage space can make the furniture piece even more space-saving. Then just pull out the bed when it’s time to catch Zs and store it after use.
Small Bedroom Ideas for Space Saving
Use a Dark Color Scheme
Conventional wisdom says this will make the room seem smaller when you use dark beddings and throw pillows, for example. The main function of the dark colors is to actually embrace the rooms’ small size to create a cozy atmosphere. Just make sure to add lots of lighting to offset the dark color scheme.
Add Natural Elements
This can include potted plants, artificial plants, and even ornamental cabbage. It adds more “life” to a small room, which can help to create the illusion of the Great Outdoors.
Create a Basic Layout
Sometimes more is less and especially when you have minimum space to work with. Try centering the bed against the wall. Then make sure to position the bed so there’s still walk space on both sides of the furniture.
In fact, you can just center the bed in the middle of the main wall instead of awkwardly angling it in the center of the room, for example.
Add a Canopy Bed
Yes, canopy beds are big. This might seem odd when you’re working with a small space. However, it can be effective by mixing and matching big and small elements in the room. A big bed/small room approach might seem unconventional but it mixes things up in terms of scale.
Use Sofa Beds or Storage Beds
These features make the bed more space-saving, which in turn helps make it easier to add furniture, décor, etc. to the room without making it cramped.
Add Lots of Lighting
This will help to create an illusion of a bigger room. You have lots of options like:
- Floor lamp
- Bedside table lamps
- Reading sconce
Adding such options will add to the room’s ambience and make it seem less small.
As you can see, it’s possible to make a small room space-saving with the right furniture. This includes a sofa bed, folding bed, and storage bed after you pick a comfortable mattress. The mattress can help to provide the needed comfort and support needed to make your bedroom as snug and cozy as it is space-efficient.
