The choice of furniture is an important point in designing a narrow bedroom to make it look wider. So that the use of the room can be maximized, you should choose furniture that is multifunctional.

You can use the bed frame as well as storage space. That way, there is no need to use a cabinet to store things.

If you still need storage space, take advantage of the ceiling of the house to store lots of items. Don't forget to add a portable ladder that makes easy access between the room and the ceiling.

Set good lighting

Good lighting also determines the design of a narrow room to look wider. The afternoon sun can make a bedroom feel more spacious and look fresh. For that, make sure there is nothing blocking the way of sunlight into the room.

In addition, you can take advantage of lighting from lamps. So that the bedroom ceiling looks higher, make lighting from the bottom up. Choose a lamp with a white light color. Determining the right lamp wattage can also affect the feel of the bedroom.

Want to have additional space in a narrow bedroom? No problem. You can add a mezzanine to the interior of the room. A mezzanine is an additional floor in a room.

You can make this mezzanine a resting area by adding a spring bed or a private lounge under the mezzanine. Choose furniture such as a TV or a small lounge chair to leave room for movement in the bedroom.

Add a mirror so that the room looks more spacious
