Check out our top bedroom designs to find which one  would work best in your little area. 

Swap your run-of-the-mill headboard out for something dramatic that stretches to the ceiling (drawing the eye with it) like this funky rattan beauty. 

Add Drama and Height With Your Headboard 

This option, suspended from the ceiling, gives you all the functionality while freeing up the floor space underneath, making room for a storage basket, a small shoe shelf or nothing at all.   

Hang a Nightstand From the Ceiling 

This modern walnut shelf adds a touch of color to the crisp white room and bed linens.   

Or, Mount It on the Wall 

Love the idea but also love your lamps? Get the same result by mounting shelves on either side of your bed to hold your lamps.   

Or, Place It on a Shelf 

Contrary to popular belief, employing large artwork on your small bedroom walls can actually make the space look bigger. While small art tends to look random and busy, larger pieces look intentional and authoritative.   

Use Large Artwork as a Focal Point 

Start with high-thread-count, 100% cotton, linen or bamboo sheets, then add a thick duvet or quilt and pile on lots of fluffy pillows.  

Splurge on Quality Linen 

Long, airy curtains stretching from the floor to the ceiling give the impression that the ceilings are much higher than they are.
