Personalizing and decorating a bigger bedroom is much easier. When you have a bigger space, you can try and experiment with different design elements to match your personality and still get that luxurious and spacious look. However, when you have to personalize and decorate your small bedroom, you have to be very careful with what design elements you are considering. For instance, you can’t afford to add a lot of furniture, because of the limited space. And that’s why, customizing and personalizing a smaller bedroom often gets challenging. Luckily, there are smaller design tweaks that can still be made while customizing and decorating your space to reflect your personality.
Today in this post, I am sharing some simple bedroom design tips and ideas that will help you to Personalize and decorate your small bedroom easily on a budget.
Best ways to decorate and personalize your small bedroom
Although high-end luxurious apartment complexes offer bigger bedrooms and space, most of the economy range flats and apartments have smaller bedrooms. Needless to say, you can’t just go wrong while decorating and furnishing your flat. Buying big-size furniture, luxurious armchairs, installing open storage cabinets etc can ruin the overall ambience and functionality of your small bedroom. There is a fine line between a well-decorated bedroom and an overstuffed space, and the trick is to not cross that line.
Even though your bedroom is your very personal space, it must reflect who you are. The colours of the curtains and linen, the design and size of your bedroom furniture, and a small personal nook can all enhance the functionality and show who you are.
However, when you are personalizing and furnishing a small bedroom, you have to be very choosy about each of these elements. While the elements must fit your personality and enhance the functionality of the space, they should also be easy to implement and cost-effective.
So, here’s how you can personalize and decorate your small bedroom that will reflect your personality. Check out these simple and easy-to-implement steps below and get ready to be surprised by the end results.
Add a mirror
Glass and mirrors are extensively used these days, especially to decorate small spaces. By combining glass as a design element, you can easily create an illusion of a bigger space. The best place to add a mirror in a smaller bedroom can be the cupboard doors.
When your bedroom is smaller in size, you have to be very careful in designing the furniture. And what can be better than a sliding cupboard door? While the slide doors help save a lot of space, when you add a full-size mirror to the doors, it looks amazingly beautiful. By putting a mirror on the cupboard door, you can enhance the overall appearance and easily create an illusion of a larger space.
Plants and greeneries
While personalizing and furnishing your bedroom, consider making space for some living house plants. Plants and greeneries can say a lot about your personality. Also, plants are the best cost-effective décor elements that do require a lot of space but can enhance the space beautifully. You don’t have to put a lot of potted plants to create greeneries. Just a couple of nicely picked plants that will go well in your bedroom should be good enough.
However, remember to not use artificial plants. Choose live potted plant(s) preferably succulent plants, which suit your personality. Adding plants that do not require much care can be the best way to personalize and decorate a small bedroom.

Apart from pleasing your feet, rugs and carpets can transform almost any space, including your bedroom. Rugs are available in various design patterns at different price ranges.

Besides being cost-effective, hanging yourself does not take up a lot of floor space and can really go well with smaller bedrooms.
