Decorate with a soothing colour scheme
Bedrooms are the ideal place to decorate with a cool, calming colour scheme. And the good news is that not only will it aid sleep but it will also help the room to feel larger. A soft grey-blue is a great choice, and will work especially well in combination with simple white furniture and a pale wood floor. To make the room feel as large as possible do away with feature walls and paint everything in the same shade. A pale colour on the floor will also help, as will painting skirting boards a colour similar to the floor - it will trick the eye into thinking the floor area is larger than it really is.
