1. Turn your headboard into a work of art
Interior Firm: The Makers Design Studio
Get a chic headboard to add an accent to the entire space. Here, the homeowner went with a stunning marbling design with recessed lights for a boutique-hotel feel.
2. Embrace the open concept look without going there
Interior Firm: i Chapter
Using bi-fold glass partitions, this homeowner made the bedroom area a part of the apartment design without compromising on the room's feeling of privacy (thanks to the curtains). Open up the partitions for a roomy feel or keep it closed for an intimate appeal.
3. Forget nightstands, use your wall for storage!

No room for nightstands? Try recessing your walls to carve out storage compartments. It keeps your bedroom organised with a dedicated space for your books and other miscellaneous items while making sure that they are all within reach.
4. Mirror, mirror on the (bedroom) wall
Interior Firm: Pavilon BC
Another headboard idea that doubles up as a neat interior trick: Using mirrors as part of your headboard design helps create the illusion of space in an otherwise tiny bedroom – it can even help to amplify your ceiling height!
5. Now you see the bed... and now you don't
Interior Firm: Meter Square
Something to consider if space is really an issue – a pullout bed. Popular in tiny homes in Europe, you can opt for the same idea by having your pullout bed concealed in your cabinets of your bedroom.
6. An extended vanity
Interior Firm: Free Space Intent
Go for a seamless look in your bedroom by making your vanity table part of your storage unit. It looks clean and streamlined instead of your vanity area being an afterthought.
7. Have your carpentry become your accent wall
Interior Firm: The Interior Lab
Try using carpentry as your accent wall. Here, it demarcates the vanity area from the actual bedroom space as well as acts as a feature wall thanks to a cool geometric wallpaper. The best part – it’s easy to do!
8. Bye vanity insanity, conceal it and keep things clutter-free
Interior Firm: Weiken.com
Much like the pull-out bed, you can work your vanity into your storage solutions and save more space that way. Plus, it’s easy to keep it concealed with a sliding door when not in use to keep your bedroom tidy.
9. The perfect way to fill out an awkward corner
Interior Firm: Starry Homestead
Don’t know what to do with awkward corners in your bedroom? Consider customising a vanity area to perfectly fit in the area. Not only will it solve your empty space problem, you’ll also gain a vanity table in the process!
10. Storage, vanity and accent wall? Yes, please
Interior Firm: Couple Abode
Consider this 3-in-1 idea where you can customise your storage area to also be part of your vanity table as well as an accent wall. This creates a seamless design to make your bedroom look chic and contemporary.
11. Clever compartmentalisation for additional legroom
Interior Firm: akiHAUS
