Once the overall design is done and the lighting and furniture are in their place, the room decorating process, or personalizing it, can start. Actually, the design of a small or tiny master bedroom follows exactly the same path as a regular or larger master bedroom, perhaps with a few considerations regarding a small space along the way. Anyway, you should take the decoration of your small bedroom with confidence and the results will meet your vision and needs.
Color scheme is an important factor. Choose a fabric that fits your family’s lifestyle and the overall design. Opt for colors that match to the room and design style. For example, a very tiny pattern is too busy; on the other hand, a very large pattern is obvious, too overwhelming.
Pick the fabric background color as the main color in your bedroom’s color scheme. Use the others colors as the accent.
How to Allocate the Colors
The main color in a three or more color room scheme usually appears on two thirds of the surfaces, including the floors, walls, bed and window treatments. A smart idea is to use as inspiration for the main color the fabric color of window treatments or bed coverings. Your secondary color should appear on almost one third of the surfaces: the pillows, bed skirt, and cushions.
Less than 10 percent are reserved for additional colors such as for lamp shades, picture matting and other accessories.
In small master bedrooms with just a two-color scheme, the secondary color appears on almost 20 percent, and the main color on 80 or more percent.
Contrast is Important
Window treatment like curtains or drapes in vivid colors or in a high-contrast to the wall colors will draw the eye attention making the room look even smaller. On the other hand curtains or drapes in a color scheme similar to the color of the walls will integrate blurring the visual lines and making the bedroom look larger. Moreover, in a small bedroom, consider the same color scheme for ceiling and walls to increase the space feeling.
Texture is another important factor to increase the space feeling. Textured wallpaper can be really useful because increases the perceived room size through a blurred contrast and increases the elegance and aesthetic through texture.
Even if your master bedroom is small like size it must inspire calm, serenity and tranquility. So, your room should be uncluttered, without many accessories that will make your bedroom look smaller, shrinking visually the space. If you have several items, it is a good idea to group them in three or five pieces of a similar color and size.
