3. Keep your space minimal, and punctuate it with delicate greenery and some interesting wall panels.

4. White walls with wall art is a nice option that will help your room to feel open and roomy.

5. Pastel hues are a great option for small bedrooms, and when pared with crisp white linen, the area feels capacious and ample.

6. In a small bedroom, side lamps can be mounted to the bedhead to save space, as well as providing some serious style!

7. Choose your accessories carefully! The right number of accoutrements can drastically improve the room's spaciousness, while too many will have an opposite effect—so add them carefully!

8. The right lighting makes a huge difference in a tiny bedroom. Get creative and combine lighting with wall art for a unique effect!
