Think, Jewelry Box 

Similar to a jewelry box, paint the walls with bright and bold colors or patterned wallpaper. Choose a charming light fixture instead of your average floor lamp, like a chandelier, and decorate with fancy framed mirrors. Use your small bedroom to make a statement.

Storage Bed

If you’re in the market for a new bed, consider a bed with builtin drawers underneath for extra storage. Or raise your bed with bed risers, they’ll give your bed an extra lift so you have more room to store things underneath.
