Bedroom decor that won’t cost an arm and a leg!

Even those who don’t live in a palace deserve a bedroom that’s comfortable, practical, beautiful and conducive to a perfect night’s sleep.


Here are some tips on how to decorate a small room on a budget:

  • First of all, sort, declutter and keep only the essentials.
  • Optimise your storage: a large shelf, closet or chest of drawers… Your room will appear more spacious if things have been tidied up/hidden.
  • Choose a comfortable bed with soft cushions and light-coloured sheets, which create an open and relaxed space.
  • Consider adding some soft lighting elements (bedside lamp, fairy lights) to create a cosy atmosphere.

Small space design: make a cosy living room

What’s the golden rule when it comes to furnishing small spaces? Be practical and optimise!

  • For your sofa, opt for a two-seater convertible bed so you can host family and friends or, if you are in a studio, to sleep on at night.
  • Consider getting a small coffee table: to save more space, go for higher instead of wider. And make sure it has extra storage space.
  • If you need extra seating, simply invest in a few footstools for the floor or a single but inviting chair.
  • To maximise space, avoid putting too much on the floor. Instead, opt for space-saving furniture such as shelves, wall-mounted TVs and ceiling lights. The less you have on the floor, the more space you’ll save.
  • And consider adding a touch of nature with some small green plants!
