Get the dimensions

Measure the space, and determine where you’d like to put furniture and storage. You can do this by measuring the length and width of your room, then marking off a rectangle in each corner of the room. These will serve as guides for where your furniture should go.

Think about your bed

Your bed should be the focal point of your room. You want your bed to be comfortable and supportive, but also stylish and well-made. As long as the mattress meets all of these criteria, there are many ways to save money while still getting a great night's sleep on top of an amazing mattress.

Consider built-ins

Built-ins, which can be used in any room of the house and are more expensive than regular furniture, are also more functional. Built-in storage options include cabinets, shelves, and even beds. They can be used to store books, art supplies and other items you want to keep hidden away from view for aesthetic purposes.

Invest in a dresser with good storage

If there's one thing we've learned about storing clothes, it's that you need to have room for them. A tall chest of drawers is ideal for storing shirts and pants, while a wider dresser can fit more items like socks, shoes, accessories and underwear. Make sure the drawers are full extension so that you can access your clothes easily.

Know about your furniture style

It's important to know your furniture style before you buy. You don't want to mix styles or anything that will look unbalanced. For example, if you like a contemporary look and have a lot of it in your space, then adding some traditional elements may not work for the room. If you're going for trendy, then be careful about buying something that won't last long in your home or has too much of an expiration date on it.

Pick a color scheme

Don’t be afraid to go bold with color. The easiest way to find a suitable palette is by choosing a main, secondary and accent color. The main color is the most significant hue in the room, while the secondary and accent hues are used sparingly as accents. Ideally, you should choose three colors that work well together. These can be monochromatic, analogous or complementary.

Imagine the final look before you buy

Small rooms can be stylish, but they will look beautiful only if you know how to maximize their space and choose the right furniture pieces. The first step is knowing what kind of furniture will fit in the space and what style will work best in your bedroom. If you have a window seat or nook that's not being used, it can make a great place for storage or additional seating, just make sure it doesn't block access to another part of your room.
