The bedroom is an important room in the house, allowing you to calm down and relax, providing comfort and recovery. A bedroom of 140 square feet is compact, but with proper interior design, it can provide a decent rest. In fact, small rooms can easily accomplish this task. Today, interior designers of residential buildings present so many ideas and impressions on how to design a bedroom of 13 square meters (140 sq. feet), that a limited area has ceased to be a problem, reincarnating into a creative project in which it is possible to demonstrate ingenuity.
White and light bedrooms look bigger than they really are. This is due to the magic of this coloring, which illuminates the room, visually increasing it. The room in this color looks very clean, neat and elegant. Moreover, accessories in each color correspond to white. Light curtains in the windows make daylight only dim, but do not guarantee complete darkness in the early morning. This color of curtains is suitable for people who have no problems sleeping with invigorating sunlight. Bedrooms of 13 square meters, decorated with light colors, look better than in a dark color.
The decorative wall behind the bed gives the bedroom interior of 140 square feet completely different concept. The surface can be painted in darker colors, giving the room depth. The wall behind the bed can play a very important role – it’s a great place for decoration. Thanks to the expression of the pattern or picture, the bedroom will acquire a peculiar character. In this case, besides an elegant set of bedding, other decorative elements are really not needed, because against the background of attractive bright wallpaper they will go to the background or will not be noticed at all. Arranging a small bedroom in darker colors is a good solution for people who need darkness to fully sleep.
One of the well-known ways to add a few visual extra inches to a small room is the mirror. Reflective shiny cabinet surfaces are a great way to optically enlarge the bedrooms of 140 square feet and add a sense of ease to the interior. Huge mirrors of wardrobes’ sliding door look very good, but you can also place them on the wall, above the bed, or even on the ceiling. The bigger the mirror, the lighter and more spacious the bedroom will be. Glossy stretch ceilings work fine to increase a small interior.
The most spectacular are those windows that stretch from the floor to the ceiling and across the whole wall. If the result in the large bedroom is not so stunning, then after installing the glass along the entire length of the wall in a small room the effect will be impressive. It will not only provide excellent interior lighting, but also ensures a spectacular view straight from the bed. A look at the surrounding landscape or the panorama of the city after waking up can make a person immediately energized and a desire to start a new day. However, this decision is not for everyone, such a project will be difficult to implement in some apartments located on the ground floors in the city center. Nevertheless, those who live close to nature or on the upper floors of apartment buildings must take this option into account. For people who have trouble sleeping, even in the slightest light, it is recommended to install dark, impervious blinds or curtains.
If the apartment does not have a separate wardrobe, then the closet in the bedroom will become an integral part of the furniture. Since it usually takes up a lot of space, you should carefully plan which wardrobe to choose, and where to place it in a small bedroom so that everything looks good. In the case of a really small room, the best solution is to purchase a bespoke cabinet according to the size. This option will maximize the use of space and determine the depth of the wardrobe which will match the room size. It is worth making sure that the cabinet is roomy and there are several additional boxes in it (for underwear). When arranging small bedrooms, take care so massive furniture does not dominate the room. For this purpose it is worthwhile to focus on simple, streamlined forms and carefully select the materials from which the fronts will be created. Although the bedroom is small, there are always several places that can be used for additional storage, for example, under a bed. In addition, you can also equip a special bed with drawers and shelves.
The bed does not have to be central to a small bedroom. To save a limited space, you can safely put it in a corner so that both sides of the furniture for sleeping adjoin the wall. This installation of the bed should not lead to any inconvenience, especially if the user is only one person. Moreover, sometimes the wall, adjacent to the side, gives a person a greater sense of security. However, in the 140 square feet bedroom it is possible to place a bed only at one wall at a headboard that will be an excellent decision as the area of a room allows it.
Probably, many people who have an apartment in an apartment building face a problem consisting in the form of a room intended for rest. Bedroom in the 140 square feet often is narrow and long, which makes it impossible for the free position of the bed to save space.

Thanks to this decision, both people will have easy access to the berth; they will not interfere with each other. In a small bedroom you can limit the number of interior items to a minimum. Here, the emphasis is placed on accentuating accessories, namely bedside tables and lamps, using dim light.
