Use the Holy Week downtime to create more space in your room

Since the Holy Week affords a few days of downtime to spend at home with our families, or even just alone, to tend to our own matters, some of us might want to take up changing the set up of our bedrooms, the very place we sleep and rest. Coming into a bedroom that feels suffocating and cluttered can sometimes lead to unrest and difficulties in relaxation.

Here are a few ways to create more space in your bedroom:

De-clutter and organize

As a good start, organizing loose things and throwing away unnecessary items in your room will improve its capacity for space. Keeping things in well-managed containers and cabinets will create more space for you to work with and give your room a more peaceful and harmonious feeling.

Go for soft and light hues

Dark, warm colors make a space feel cozy and intimate; on the other hand, light, cool colors make a space feel open and free. Select soft tones of blue and green. Cool, delicate colors on most surfaces generally give a room a more open look.

Color coordinate

Contrasting colors break the space up, making it look smaller than it really is. Pieces that match the color of the wall are less inharmonious and clashing; they tend to blend as a whole, giving the illusion of a bigger and more pleasant room.

Invest in space-saving furniture

Investing in space-saving furniture might be for you. Logically, the less furniture you have, the bigger the space will look. You can opt for furniture that functions as two things to save space, such as a bed with built-in storage in the bottom to store clothes and other items. Or perhaps furniture that can be made smaller, like folding desks and chairs, and stored away at your convenience.

Keep it simple

Small spaces benefit the most from curating and editing. The more pieces, furniture, and patterns you have in a room, the smaller and more cluttered it will feel. Avoid too many pieces; at least organize them in a way that looks coherent, pleasant, and intentional. Avoid intense or busy patterns, overwhelming colors, or a combination of both.

Be strict and deliberate with your choices and everything that goes into the room. In this case, less is more.
