Many of us have a small room in our homes which tends to be neglected, or used as a place to dump those items we’re not quite sure what to do with. If you have a box room or spare bedroom that’s in need of some love and attention, here are some of our tips to help you make the most of it and transform your smallest room into one of your favourites.
- Have a clear plan in mind before beginning any decorating. What are you going to use the room for? If it’s a spare bedroom, think about how you can make it feel restful and relaxing. If it’s an office or studio, think about the colours and textures that inspire and energise you.
- Make a bold statement. Lighter, neutral tones can help to make a smaller space feel more open, but a tiny room gives you the perfect opportunity to break the rules. If you’ve always wanted to paint a room a bright colour or hang wallpaper with a huge, bold pattern, why not give it a go in your smallest room? If you’re not happy with the final result, it’ll be quicker and easier to change it back to something a little more neutral than if you had experimented in one of your larger rooms. The chances are that you will love the final result and be happy you took the risk.
- Don’t think you have to equip a small room with small items and furnishings. Lots of tiny ornaments and pieces of furniture will make a room feel crowded and cluttered, but a few well-chosen, large pieces of furniture and artwork will give the space a clearer, fresher look that can in turn help to make the room feel bigger.
