Apartment Bedroom Ideas

An apartment bedroom doesn't have to feel super small and devoid of personality, as there are many ways you can maximize on space and fill the room with function and coziness to create a dreamy sleep space all your own.

For instance, capitalizing on any natural light coming into the apartment bedroom or adding mirrors to the walls can make the room feel larger and bright. You can also use vertical space by incorporating bookshelves, tall storage chests, and even opting for wall sconces for lighting options to free up floor space. Creating a focal point, such as a bold accent wall or adding some eye-catching artwork, can make the bedroom more interesting and personalized.

Our design experts have all the details on how to decorate and arrange furniture in your small bedroom apartment and how to make the space feel extra cozy and stylish for those who rent.
