Design Editor Karla Dreyer visits Rosewood Home & Condo to create a stunning yet highly functional bedroom in a small space.

SPACE HOG In a small bedroom, the bed will take up the majority of the floor space. We started with a beautiful wood storage bed which allows you to use that same square footage for both sleeping and storage.

SIDE STORY It’s always a good idea to think lateral when designing a small space. On one side of the bed, we placed a small side table with a bookshelf behind it to double the storage. On the other side of the bed, we skipped the side table and used a dresser instead. This gives us the storage space of a dresser but you can still use it as a side table as well.

GO NEUTRAL In a small space, it’s nice to keep the color palette neutral to open up the space and add warmth. We have accomplished this with beautiful rugs, a small chair and side table as well as a basket for storage.

HANG AROUND Hanging lighting from the ceiling rather than placing lamps on a side table is another great space saving tip!
