2. Use a spare chair or mini step ladder as a nightstand

The biggest space gobblers in the bedroom are often the side tables or nightstands. If you have space them, consider switching out a normal nightstand with a more portable option like a spare chair or little stepladder.

3. Mount the lights on the walls and ceiling

Wall and ceiling-mounted lamps are definitely the way to go in a small bedroom. This option also frees you up from a permanent side table solution.

Round tables and furniture with curved edges tend to make any room feel more spacious. The is no fear of bumping into the corners and those few inches can make a huge difference in any small home.

Free standing furniture is a real problem in many small bedrooms. It's far better to ditch the bedframe and use build in cabinets or improvised sleeping solutions.

6. Consider a sleeping platform with built in storage

Consider a sleeping platform. The mattress can go on a basic floor frame for ventilation or you could roll it up every day. This option also gives you the opportunity for building floor storage like this.

7. Or a sleeping platform with a bookshelf

A sleeping platform could be butted right up against a wall-mounted bookshelf that could double as a nightstand as well. Just look at this super comfy little bedroom for inspiration.
