Distract the eye from the size of the room with a stylish vinyl wall stick that will decorate small bedrooms in drama and fancy detail. Another option is one bright focal wall to add a fascinating feature in a modern bedroom.

2. Mirrored

Maximise space and illumination with a large mirror and decorate small bedrooms in pretty detail and comfortable bed linen.

3. Clever storage

So you don't have a cupboard in the small bedroom, no problem… dramatic curtains do the same job and take up less space too.

4. Design with daylight

Natural light will enhance that cosy appeal, especially in a bedroom with a small space. Do away with those bulky curtains and let the light shine in, and if you want a darker room at night, then simple blinds will do the trick.

5. Home office
