If you are looking for a bedroom in this period, you will surely have noticed that smaller properties are becoming more and more popular. Fortunately, we're still far from Japanese micro-apartment standards, but the idea that space should be rationed is clear. A single room, including a queen and a half mattress, requires at least 9 square meters, while a double room requires at least 14.


Designing new spaces is always stimulating, especially if they are ours. With large rooms, it may seem like child's play, but if you let your creativity run free, even the smallest spaces will be fun to study: choose the right color and the necessary space to store clothes and objects, which you will have to love and look with a smile day after day. Consider alternative solutions that take advantage of surfaces through smart storage systems.


Mirrors: our number one allies

The main goal is to make the room appear more spacious than it actually is. Since it is not possible to physically enlarge it, you will have to apply some clever tricks.


The virtues of mirrors have been known for centuries, as the wealthiest families competed to see who had the most ornate mirrored walls. Over the years they have kept their charm intact due to the ability to reflect their surroundings. This prerogative makes them extremely useful when you want to trick the eye: they reflect the light and the opposite walls, creating the pleasant illusion of more generous surfaces. Therefore, it abounds: dare with the shape and size of the frames, decorate your room in an original way!

We recommend a cabinet with a mirrored door, or an alternative solution, and much cheaper, is our Angelica standing mirror. Product made in Italy, it will give a refined look to your bedroom.


A valid alternative, for our readers with a more eclectic taste, is our Olivia: an elegant round mirror that brings dynamism and character to the environment that surrounds it.


An orderly environment will seem more comfortable and larger

Over the years, an unspeakable amount of clothing and accessories tends to accumulate, which, from occupying all the spaces in the closet, are moved to a chair, nightstand, and desk. In many cases this situation is not caused by the low capacity of the furniture, but by the way in which the objects are accumulated. If you fall into this description, it's probably time to reorganize your bedroom more efficiently and consider cleaning a lifestyle. English term that literally means “to remove the clutter”, in addition to making it a more organized and spacious place at a glance, it has real benefits on a psychological level.

Our smart advice is to opt for smart furniture. From beds with drawers to multifunctional desks, in case you need to study or work in your room. Our Giuditta console table is ideal: linear and small in size, it was designed to keep order. Goodbye tangled cables and scattered camera gimmicks, now you can optimize your space with a simple click.

If that's not enough, consider alternative solutions to the classic standing nightstand: get the space you need by thinking vertically. Every wall can be the scene of an exhibition: take advantage of the available space with wall shelves, wall shelves, and suspended bedside tables.

An example of a modern nightstand that might be right for you is our Riccardo. Extremely versatile, it has been designed to make spaces more usable. To hang alone or in series, it will give an original touch to your room and will allow you to clean the floors more easily.

Special attention to colors and lighting

Even colors, especially light tones, can help create the illusion of a larger-than-real space. Tones such as blue, vanilla, and cream, guarantee greater luminosity by reflecting light, with the advantage of a radiant and not cluttered room. A highly stylish solution is that of total white, broken by contrasts of beige and black in the details, such as paintings on the walls, a rug, or a pillowcase. Most dark tones such as blue, gray, or black will make your room even smaller, giving a feeling of oppression to those who live it daily... We do not recommend them!

If light colors aren't your thing, try more vibrant shades like orange, cherry red, or turquoise—they'll make a big impact without affecting the perspective of your surroundings in any way.

Try to give the room uniformity, in this case, the textile accessories are also excellent allies. The choice of mattresses and bed bases should not be underestimated: always opt for certified and breathable materials, it is essential that you guarantee a correct and natural posture for your spine, do not save on the quality of your sleep! Whenever possible, opt for light fabrics for both the double bed and the curtains. Instead, with winter approaching, consider a range of blankets in the same shades, but with different textures.

Light can also make a difference. Not everyone is lucky enough to have a good supply of natural light, where possible we recommend arranging the arrangement of furniture in order to make the most of its presence, to create a light and airy space.

Alternatively, a good interior lighting project allows you to enlarge the space, illuminating it evenly, to avoid dark corners.
