The size of a bedroom can vary depending on the country, region, and type of dwelling. However, here are some general guidelines for bedroom sizes:

Small bedroom:

  • Typically measures between 7 feet by 10 feet (70 square feet) and 10 feet by 12 feet (120 square feet).
  • Can comfortably fit a full-size bed or a queen-size bed with minimal additional furniture.

Tiny bedroom:

  • Usually measures less than 7 feet by 10 feet (70 square feet).
  • May only have enough space for a twin-size bed or a full-size bed with very limited additional furniture or storage.
  • Often found in studio apartments, lofts, or older homes.

Normal bedroom (also called “master bedroom” or “standard bedroom”):

  • Typically measures between 11 feet by 12 feet (132 square feet) and 14 feet by 16 feet (224 square feet).
  • Can comfortably accommodate a queen-size or king-size bed, along with additional furniture such as nightstands, dressers, and a seating area.

Large (luxury) bedroom:

  • Master bedrooms with en-suites are mostly the largest bedrooms in a property
  • Measures more than 14 feet by 16 feet (224 square feet).
  • Can easily accommodate larger beds, multiple pieces of furniture, and additional features like a sitting area or a workspace.

These are general guidelines, and bedroom sizes can vary significantly based on where they are, the age of the home, and local building codes.

Bedroom sizes may tend to be smaller in some countries and cities with high population density, while they may be larger in suburban or rural areas. For example, bedrooms in mansions and McMansions are larger than those in townhouses or condos.

How to Design a Small Minimalist Bedroom with maximum Space and Style?

If you own a small bedroom or just purchased your first property and are about to start planning the renovation, and some of the bedrooms are tiny or small, this is how to start planning the space.

Small doesn’t mean downsizing, but dealing with limited space in a way that avoids the typically cramped quarters feeling and achieves a spacious appearance without major compromises.

You can read our guide on interior design for beginners that covers the top do’s and don’ts to maximize your design project plan and expectations.

 

Designing a small and large minimalist bedroom involves creating a serene and clutter-free environment that not only optimizes space but also provides a calming retreat in a limited space.

A minimalist approach to bedroom design focuses on space-saving solutions, eliminating unnecessary elements, and keeping decor simple and functional. The key is to highlight clean lines, efficient layout, a monochrome or neutral color palette, and quality over quantity in both furniture and accessories.

  1. Furniture: choose compact, multifunctional, space-saving pieces.
  2. Storage: utilize built-in, hidden, vertical storage solutions.
  3. Color scheme: stick to light, neutral colors to create an airy feel.
  4. Lighting: incorporate natural light and soft, warm artificial lighting.
  5. Decor: keep decor minimal with simple, meaningful accents.
  6. Textures: mix rough and soft textures for coziness and visual interest.
  7. Focal point: add one bold element, like artwork or a pendant light.
  8. Layout: optimize floor plan for functionality and flow.
  9. Vertical space: take advantage of full wall and ceiling height.
  10. Clutter: ruthlessly edit and avoid accumulating excess items.

By following these key principles and carefully selecting each element, you can transform a small bedroom into a stylish, serene, and functional minimalist retreat that feels more spacious than its actual size.

In a minimalist bedroom, every piece has a purpose. Furniture with sleek, simple designs maximizes floor space and enhances the sense of openness. Storage solutions are seamlessly integrated, keeping personal items out of sight and the environment tidy. 

To prevent the room from feeling too stark, incorporating different textures through textiles like cotton or wool can add warmth and comfort without complicating the aesthetic. Natural light is valued for its ability to brighten and energize the space, often complemented by discreet lighting options that blend into the decor.

Decor in a small minimalist bedroom is deliberate, often featuring one or two pieces of art that resonate with the occupant, rather than an assortment of decorative items.

Real or Faux plants may be used to bring in natural elements and life, while the quality of materials—from bed linens to curtains—is prioritized to ensure longevity and timelessness. In essence, the minimalist bedroom is designed to be a personal sanctuary that promotes rest and rejuvenation

 

What is Minimalism?

In designing a small minimalist bedroom, it is essential to grasp the core concepts and historical roots of minimalism. This design approach centers on simplicity and functionality, aiming to create serene and clutter-free spaces. Minimalism also means good organization, not only beautiful and clean-lined spaces.

4 Principles of Minimalism

Minimalism advocates for ‘less is more’, emphasizing simplicity and clean lines. The 4 key principles include are:

  • Simplicity: Stripping down to essentials, creating rooms with minimal furnishings and details.
  • Functionality: Each item in a minimalist space should serve a purpose, be it functional or as a form of visual relief.
  • Quality over Quantity: Preference for fewer, higher-quality pieces over an abundance of less significant items.
  • Uncluttered Spaces: Frequent decluttering to maintain a sense of order and openness.

Minimalist Design History

Minimalist design has its origins in Japanese Zen philosophy, which appreciates beauty in simplicity and the value of empty space. Over time, it has evolved:

  • Early Influences: The minimalist aesthetic in the West was influenced by traditional Japanese homes, which featured clean lines and open spaces.
  • Mid-20th Century: Minimalism became prominent in visual arts and architecture, with architects like Ludwig Mies van der Rohe embracing the mantra “less is more”.
  • Present Day: The minimalist movement continues to influence contemporary design, reflecting society’s yearning for tranquility amidst chaos.

How to plan a small bedroom?

Even the smallest spaces can be designed well when the most important design principles are followed. Designing a small minimalist bedroom hinges on effectively planning the space. This involves evaluating the room’s size, understanding the scale and proportion of furniture in relation to the room, and finding ways to optimize the available space.

Room Dimensions

The first step in planning a small minimalist bedroom is to measure the dimensions of the room. You can use standard measurement tools as tape measure with pen and paper or a digital tape measure or 3D point cloud camera to accurately determine the size of your space.

Using pen and paper is a simple and affordable method, but it may be more time-consuming and prone to human error. Alternatively, you can use a digital tape measure like a Bosch or Makita in combination with your smartphone to take photos (it’s called room scan) and import everything into apps like MagicPlan to convert the room scan into a 2D CAD floorplan.

It is essential to have a precise understanding of the available space to ensure that any design elements can fit comfortably. This includes noting the locations of doors, windows, and any built-in structures such as closets or shelves.

This will help you make informed decisions about furniture scale, furniture placement, furniture proportion, storage solutions, and overall layout.

Scale and Proportion

Choosing furniture and decor that are in harmony with the scale and proportion of the room is crucial. The goal is to select items that complement the bedroom’s architecture without overwhelming it. 

An example of how a simple trick can turn a small room into a decent-looking bedroom. Instead of going with a high bed with a large headrest, opting for a low-profile bed can make the room seem larger; oversized furniture in a small room makes it feel cramped. 

  • Furniture Scale: A bed that leaves ample walkway space around it or consider a compact, wall-mounted desk that can be folded up when not in use, maximizing floor space and maintaining a clutter-free look. Select a minimalist wardrobe with sliding doors that take up minimal depth while providing ample storage space for clothing and accessories.
  • Decor Proportion: Smaller artwork centered above the bed to create a focal point without clutter or install a single, streamlined floating shelf above the desk to display a few carefully curated items, such as a small succulent or a couple of favorite books. Hang a single, large mirror on the wall adjacent to the wardrobe to create the illusion of a larger space and provide a functional element for dressing.

Balancing the scale of the furniture and keeping the decors at a minimum yet fully functional makes up a great example of a well-optimized minimalist bedroom.

Maximizing space in a minimalist bedroom is about choosing furnishings that serve multiple purposes and making smart storage choices.

Convertible furniture as under-bed storage is a discreet way to keep items out of sight while maintaining a sleek look. Wall-mounted shelves can add storage without taking up floor space.

  • Opt for multipurpose furniture like a storage bed or a floating (fold-down) desk or wall-mounted table.
  • Storage (Ottoman) bench in front of the bed if the size of the space allows it.
  • Utilize vertical space with wall shelves or tall, slender storage units, a mirror with storage, or a pegboard organizer near the door or window wall.
  • If wardrobe space is restricted, choose slim, velvet hangers to save space and prevent clothes from slipping. This will allow you to fit more items in your hanging space without creating a cluttered look.
  • Move some of the bags and shoes under the stairs (if you have one). Dedicate a separate space for your bags, shoes, and accessories that are not used often in an understair cupboard section. Store them in a way that is easily accessible and visible, such as on a shelf or in a designated drawer.

By carefully considering each of these aspects, one can craft a small minimalist space that feels larger than its actual dimensions and serves both form and function.

To design a small bedroom wardrobe based on the KonMari method, consider the following tips:

  1. Assess your storage needs: Determine how much hanging space and folding space you require based on your decluttered wardrobe. This will help you plan the layout and components of your small wardrobe.
  2. Maximize vertical space: Install a closet system that makes use of the full height of your wardrobe. Use a combination of hanging rods, shelves, and drawers to accommodate your clothing categories.
  3. Use slim hangers: Choose slim, velvet hangers to save space and prevent clothes from slipping. This will allow you to fit more items in your hanging space without creating a cluttered look.
  4. Incorporate drawer dividers: Use drawer dividers to keep your folded clothes organized and easy to access. This will help maintain the KonMari folding method and prevent items from becoming messy over time.
  5. Add shelf dividers: Utilize shelf dividers to create designated spaces for different clothing categories or accessories. This will keep items separated and make it easier to find what you need.
  6. Install a pegboard or hooks: Make use of the inside of your wardrobe doors by installing a pegboard or hooks. This is a great space-saving solution for storing accessories like scarves, belts, or jewelry.
  7. Consider using boxes or baskets: Use boxes or baskets to store items that don’t easily stand up on their own, such as socks or undergarments. Label the containers to keep your wardrobe organized and clutter-free.
  8. Utilize the space under your bed: If you have limited wardrobe space, consider using under-bed storage containers for items that are not frequently used, such as out-of-season clothing or extra bedding.
  9. Keep the wardrobe well-lit: Ensure your small wardrobe has adequate lighting to make it easy to see your clothing items. Install LED strip lights or battery-operated touch lights to brighten up the space.
  10. Regularly reassess and maintain: Periodically review your wardrobe and remove any items that no longer spark joy. Maintain the organization by putting items back in their designated spots after each use.
 

Color and Texture

In designing a small minimalist bedroom, the selection of color and texture plays a pivotal role in creating an atmosphere that is both serene and aesthetically pleasing. Careful consideration of these elements can transform a limited space into a calming retreat.

Choosing a Color Palette

When selecting a color palette for a small minimalist bedroom, individuals should aim for light or neutral colors to make the room feel more spacious and airy. A monochromatic scheme can serve as a tranquil base, with shades of white, beige, and gray often recommended for their capacity to reflect light and enhance a room’s openness. For those seeking a touch of color, pastel tones like pale blue, light green, blush pink, or soft yellow can introduce subtle vibrancy without overwhelming the space. To add depth and interest, bright accents can punctuate the room—one can consider a single piece of art or a decorative item in a bold hue.

  • Recommended Light Colors: White, Beige, Gray
  • Pastel Options: Pale Blue, Light Green, Blush Pink, Soft Yellow
  • Accent Suggestions: A vibrant pillow, piece of art, or decorative vase

Textures

The use of texture is essential in a minimalist bedroom to prevent the space from feeling flat or stark. A bedroom is a personal sanctuary. Textures can be incorporated through a variety of materials to create soothing, cozy bedding in an inviting environment.

Generally, the rule is plush pillows and soft throws. Soft textiles in the form of wool cushions or silk pillows can add a layer of comfort, while subtle patterns on bedding or curtains introduce visual interest without cluttering the design. Natural elements like wood or woven baskets bring warmth to the minimalist setting. It’s important to balance the textures so that they complement rather than compete with one another, maintaining the tranquil and cohesive feel of the room.

  • Soft Textiles: Wool cushions, silk pillows, linen bedding
  • Natural Elements: Wooden nightstands, woven baskets
  • Balance of Textures: Keep a cohesive look with textures that nicely coexist.

Stick to pleasant textures, and avoid anything too rough, scratchy, or visually busy as splintery wood in a dark walnut color or coarse, untreated concrete in a stark gray hue. Totally avoid bold, geometric-patterned carpet in clashing shades of red and purple or loud, large-scale floral wallpaper in overwhelming hues of pink and green.

Heavily-textured tapestries in a dizzying mix of blue, yellow, and brown are not the best combination to achieve a minimalist bedroom either.

Lighting

When designing a small minimalist bedroom, lighting plays a central role in both the aesthetics and functionality of the space. The selection of light fixtures should aim for a balance between creating a cozy ambiance with soft, warm lighting and maintaining a bright and airy feel to enhance the sense of spaciousness.

Maximizing natural light is paramount. It’s advisable to have large windows with sheer curtains or light-filtering blinds to invite sunshine while maintaining privacy. Incorporating skylights can also flood the room with daylight, reducing reliance on artificial sources during the day.

For artificial lighting, strategic placement of task lighting is essential. Bedside lamps or wall sconces offer focused illumination for reading or other activities without overpowering the room. A careful arrangement of pendant lights can serve both decorative and practical purposes, hanging low to create intimate pools of light and to free up surface space.

Recessed lighting can provide an unobtrusive solution for general illumination, while dimmer switches allow control over lighting levels, helping to adjust the mood of the room in the evenings. To maintain a minimalist decor, one should opt for fixtures with clean lines and simple designs.

Remember, the right lighting can transform a small bedroom, making it not only functional but also a retreat that feels both spacious and inviting.

Picking a Bedframe

The bed is often the largest piece of furniture in a bedroom. Space-saving beds such as loft or Murphy beds provide living and storage space underneath or can be stowed away when not in use. For multifunctionality, in tiny bedrooms, a daybed or sofa bed serves as seating during the day and a bed at night. A sleek trundle bed can offer an additional sleeping area without occupying constant floor space.

Multi-purpose and Space-saving Furniture

Furniture that serves multiple purposes is a game-changer in a minimalist bedroom. Folding furniture and wall-mounted pieces clear floor space and maintain a clean, uncluttered look. Opt for a corner desk to create a functional workplace that integrates seamlessly into the room’s layout. Floating shelves and narrow nightstands provide storage while keeping the floor open and airy.

Statement Pieces

Incorporate one or two statement pieces to prevent the room from feeling too utilitarian. Although minimalist, a bedroom should still reflect personal style. A statement piece could be a boldly shaped mirror, an artistic light fixture, or an accent chair with a pop of color. Even in small spaces, a carefully chosen statement piece can enhance the room without overwhelming it.

Accessorizing small minimalist bedroom

In a minimalist bedroom, nightstands should be both practical and stylish; opt for sleek designs with clean lines and neutral colors. They can hold essential items like books or a water carafe without clutter. Bedding plays a pivotal role in cohesion; crisp, high-quality materials not only offer comfort but also contribute to the minimalist feel. Select accent pillows sparingly to add a touch of personality without overwhelming the space.

Artwork in a minimalist bedroom should create a focal point without clutter. A single piece of abstract art can set a room’s tone without overcomplicating the decor. When incorporating plants, simplicity is key—consider simple florals or greenery that bring life and a pop of color to the room. Floating shelves can display plants and prints effectively, maximizing floor space and maintaining a clutter-free environment.

Mirrors serve a dual purpose: they make a room appear larger and amplify natural light. Curtains should complement the aesthetic; sheer ones allow light to filter through while providing privacy. Remember, in a minimalist setting, each accessory, light, or mirror plays an important role and should be chosen with intent.

How to keep a small bedroom organized?

Keeping a minimalist bedroom free of clutter involves regular purging and careful consideration of what belongs in the space. Bedroom surfaces should be kept mostly clear, with decor limited to one or two carefully selected pieces. A minimalist approach is to have just essential furniture and a few

  • Regular Decluttering: Schedule time each month to evaluate the room’s contents, removing items that are no longer needed or that don’t support the bedroom’s function.
  • Limiting Decor: Keep tabletops clear except for one or two decorative items, such as a simple vase or a framed photograph.
  • Implement a “one in, one out” policy: For every new item you bring into your bedroom, consider removing one item to maintain a balance and prevent accumulation of clutter.
  • Create designated spaces: Assign specific areas for different items, such as a drawer for electronics, a shelf for books, or a tray for jewelry. This helps keep everything in its place and makes it easier to find what you need.
  • Make your bed daily: A neatly made bed can instantly make your bedroom look more organized and put together.

Final Touches

In the final stages of designing a minimalist bedroom, personal touches add warmth to the simplicity, and lifestyle choices ensure the space remains uncluttered.

For those devoted to a minimalist lifestyle, maintenance is key. The concept of “hodo-hodo,” the idea of just enough, can guide the quantity and selection of items in the bedroom. It is critical that each item in the bedroom has a purpose or brings joy to the inhabitant. An all-white palette can lend itself to a spacious feel, but it must be kept clean and clutter-free to sustain the minimalist effect.

When personalizing a minimalist bedroom, one should consider adding elements that reflect their personal style without overwhelming the space. A neutral wall serves as a canvas for tasteful wall decor; think a singular piece of art that resonates with the owner’s aesthetic, or a series of small, framed photographs that tell a personal story.

Brands like Ikea offer minimalist yet stylish options for frames and fixtures that can incorporate a touch of hygge, the Danish concept of coziness, or lagom, the Swedish philosophy of balance, making the room not only a visual delight but also a content home.

Instagram and Pinterest can be sources of inspiration for how to introduce elements of personality. 

For example:

  • Wall-mounted shelves displaying a curated selection of books or keepsakes
  • A single, bold vase with fresh greenery to add a breath of life and color
  • Textiles in subtle patterns or textures to create depth while maintaining a calming atmosphere

Related Styles and Influences

When designing a small minimalist bedroom, various global styles play a significant role in shaping aesthetics and functionality. These influences offer distinct characteristics that can be adapted to create a serene and uncluttered space.

Scandinavian and Mid-Century Influences

The Scandinavian style emphasizes functionality, simplicity, and a connection to nature, often utilizing a neutral color palette, organic materials, and light wood tones. Bedrooms incorporate natural light and are designed to evoke a sense of calm and comfort.

Mid-Century design, on the other hand, is characterized by its clean lines, gentle organic curves, and a love for different materials. It’s known for its timeless quality and is often incorporated through furniture with tapered legs and minimalist silhouettes, complementing the Scandinavian simplicity effectively.

 

Contemporary Muji Trends

Muji, a contemporary style that originated in Japan, follows the principle of “no-brand quality goods” and focuses on minimalism and the selection of materials that possess a sort of quiet elegance. It overlaps with Scandinavian minimalism in its love for simplicity, but with a specific emphasis on utilitarianism and the zen-like serenity found in the absence of clutter.

 

Japandi Elements in Minimalist Design

Japandi is a fusion of Japanese and Scandinavian design principles, merging the latter’s warm minimalism with the former’s traditional craftsmanship and appreciation for natural materials. They often layer textures and make use of subdued colors to create tranquil bedrooms. In Japandi-influenced spaces, one might also observe aspects of Feng Shui applied to ensure a harmonious flow and organization that enhances tranquility.

Use of Sustainable and Affordable materials in bedroom design

Repurposed Natural Materials: Utilize natural materials like stones, branches, or reclaimed wood as decorative elements or functional pieces like bookends or a bedside shelf.

Limewash Paint: Consider applying limewash paint to one of the walls for an inexpensive, textured, and eco-friendly floor finish. This adds a subtle character to the space without overwhelming it.

Soft Textures: Introduce soft textures through affordable DIY throw pillows or a handwoven rug. Use a blend of materials such as cotton, wool, and burlap for a balanced and comfortable atmosphere.

By focusing on simple interior decorating, decluttering, and a neutral color palette, these DIY projects can greatly contribute to a cohesive and serene minimalist bedroom design style.

Opt for large-format tiles or microcement: Use large-format tiles on the walls and floor to minimize grout lines and create a seamless, or use microcement for the ultimate minimal and clean look. This also helps to visually expand the space.

Incorporate smart storage: Maximize storage by incorporating built-in shelves, wall niches, or a medicine cabinet. Keep toiletries and accessories organized and out of sight to maintain a clutter-free appearance.

Use a glass shower enclosure: Install a frameless glass shower enclosure to create a sense of openness and allow light to pass through, making the space feel larger and more airy.

 

Focus on lighting: Ensure adequate lighting by combining ambient, task, and accent lighting. Use recessed ceiling lights, wall sconces, or a backlit mirror to create a bright and welcoming atmosphere.

Integrate natural elements: Incorporate natural materials, such as wood or stone, to add warmth and texture to the minimalist design. A wooden vanity or a stone countertop can provide visual interest without overwhelming the space.

Embrace technology: Use smart technology, such as a digital shower system or a heated floor, to enhance functionality and comfort without adding visual clutter.

Keep accessories minimal: Choose a few carefully selected accessories, such as a simple hand towel, a small plant, or a piece of artwork, to add personality without disrupting the minimalist aesthetic.

 

The key to a successful minimalist en-suite design is to prioritize functionality and simplicity while creating a calming and visually appealing space. By following these tips and working with the available space, you can create a small minimalist en-suite that meets your needs and reflects your personal style.
