Our bedroom is often our private haven, a place we go for a few minutes peace and quiet and to relax in comfort. Apart from that however, it's also where we keep all our clothes, bits and bobs, and personal items, so as well as comfort we need room for storage too.

There are some really useful and practical tips to be found online on how to set your bedroom up to look stylish and beautiful even if you only have a small space to furnish. Here are a few of the main points to consider before you start to decorate and go shopping for furniture and accessories.

One of the main things is to keep it nice and simple, overdoing the colour scheme, using lots of patterns, bulky furniture and lots of accessories will just make the space look cluttered and untidy, simple clean lines and quality oak mirrors and furniture pieces that are functional and necessary will be a lot more useful.

Too much furniture in a small room not only looks messy but also prevents you from moving around freely which might be ok for adults but is no good for kids who like space and need plenty of floor area to spread out their games and toys and play with friends in their bedroom.

One very economical and effective way to fit all your things into the room without it looking cramped is to invest in furniture that comes with storage. There are some fantastic bed designs available these days with deep drawers built in underneath the bed using space that often is overlooked whilst still looking smart.

If the room is for brothers or sisters who have to share then check out the range of bunk beds in solid European Oak now on the market, beautifully hand-crafted they are very substantial and bunks are efficient space savers. Or loft style beds are perfect for school age children with the bed at the top and a desk and chair directly underneath for studying. Or if it's a guest or spare room to be furnished then why bother with a proper bed at all? Choose instead a sofa bed or futon and just pull it out when needed, add dressing tables and stools and it's complete.

A small room calls for practicality, but don't let that cramp your style, there are plenty of funky and inspired ideas for décor and furnishings if you do some research. Only invest in products that serve a useful purpose such as a bed, wardrobes, a chest of drawers and a mirror. What else do you actually need?

Designers will tell you that small rooms shouldn't use a headboard on the bed as they mean you are unable to push it right against the wall so valuable space gets wasted, also try not to have too many shelves, particularly above the bed as they constrict the space. Think about storage with built in furniture such as nightstands or bedside tables, beds with drawers under them, and wardrobes with drawers inside.

The best way to get the most from your bedroom is to keep it nice and tidy, hang your clothes up, make the bed every morning, and keep things stored in their place and this way you'll always have that relaxing place to go and chill.
