When square footage is at a premium, attempt incorporating a wall bed instead of a traditional sofa bed. It takes a standard mattress, offering greater comfort, and can fold away to glance love a wardrobe or cabinet, freeing up valuable floor space for a desk and chair.

Ensure that the surrounding furniture is lightweight so that it can easily be moved to accommodate a pull-down bed.

Keep the decorative elements of a little room pared back by choosing a single motif such as the heart and running with it. Use it in two or three forms, such as artwork, accessories and soft furnishings, and in varying scales and the cohesive, contained scheme that results will free your space of clutter and confusion.

Put storage in high places

Like any little space, the key to a successful compact bedroom is to create adequate storage within a functional layout. Often in a little guest room, a couple of large, hard-working pieces of furniture will create a less cluttered glance than several little pieces.

When square footage is at a premium, attempt incorporating floating shelves, or (if your budget allows) bespoke fitting above the bed for a streamlined glance that wont compromise your space.

Pick a theme for your little space

Make a little bedroom appear larger by choosing a predominantly white glance and peppering it with a specific decorative motif such as flowers and leaves. Combine neutral flooring with crisp white walls, delicate florals and minimal accessories for a chic, life-enhancing bedroom. This scheme is a masterclass in using complementary colours to make a space sing. Hold furniture pale and lightweight rather than dark and solid, going for a metal bedstead and cafe-style bedside table.
