Add a simple rattan chair with a soft pillow to create a comfortable reading space, and add some plants and fresh flowers to give it a fresh feel. Curl up with a book and forget the world while you are there.

Use The Space You Have Efficiently

If you have a small room and are wondering how to fit in all your furniture without making your space look too cramped, the only way to go is to go up. The elevated bed in this bedroom helps save some floor space providing the opportunity to fit in storage drawers as well as a pull-out desk. The stairs to the bed double up as shelves, creating additional storage space. Some throw pillows on the couch and a beautiful rug can inject a pop of colour into the room.

If you have time in hand, you can also opt to change your flooring to a lighter color or opt for bigger tiles. Light colors make the room appear bigger hence giving you more options to accentuate your space with other accessories.
