I love this time of year! After all of the holiday decor and DIYs, celebrations and festivities, I’m more than ready to put it away and focus on home updates. Which is why I’m thrilled to partner with Rooms To Go to give our small master bedroom a New Year’s makeover. It’s one of our rooms that hasn’t received a lot of attention since we moved in fifteen months ago.
My husband and I had already arranged the furniture to make the most use of the space with the pieces we had but I desperately wanted to update our small- mismatched nightstands and lighting and give the rest of the room a lighter look. Here is a before of the space.
And after the refresh. Just a few small pieces made a huge difference!
Check out these easy tips below if you are living with a smaller master bedroom and having a hard time loving it.
Easy tips for making the most of a small master bedroom:
Bigger furniture can make a small room feel larger. When we moved overseas I only kept small scaled furniture pieces with plenty of small accent tables and cabinets that could be versatile in the small footprints of Japanese homes.
Now that we are in our Texas 1960’s single story ranch (under 2,000 sq ft), I knew updating our nightstands to the standard size would take more space but in the right finish and style would give us more storage and make the room look bigger.
I told the saleswoman at the Rooms To Go showroom what I was looking for and found these beautiful Belcourt White Nightstands. They come with two options of pulls, one a handle and the other knobs and a pull out table.
Add a wow factor with lighting and styling! Now that our nightstands don’t get lost in the corners of the room it was time to look for the appropriate table lamps for our small master.
I had installed a mural last summer so I knew I wanted the lamp base to be open but also wanted the lights to stand out on their own. Gold, marble, and lucite were the materials I was hoping for so I was thrilled to find a pair of Adaliade White Lamps.
Here is our master with the table lights off and on.
Use seating that highlights the space without overtaking. The final update was to replace our imported teak bench at the foot of the bed with an upholstered seat. I spotted this bench and immediately loved its elegant lines and brass legs. I put a lighter rug down and light blue throw pillows on the bed to tie it into the space. It is so beautiful and very comfortable! The smaller profile and modern lines are a perfect match.
Our bedroom is so much more fluid, high end looking, and functional now with these small changes. My husband was even impressed with how different it feels with just a few new pieces. He said he feels like he is in a high end hotel room. The ceiling looks taller and the space feels brighter.
There are still some other changes I would like to make in the future but now I’m absolutely in love with our room. If you have been apprehensive about how to utilize space in your small bedroom I hope you will be inspired by these tips and lovely pieces from Rooms To Go.
Their pretty showrooms, friendly salespeople, and white glove delivery service makes the entire experience painless and fun. Within minutes the polite and professional delivery men had the furniture set up and in place.
I had the same wonderful experience when I updated our teenager’s bedroom last summer with Rooms To Go Kids.
