Tips and Tricks to Make Your Bedroom Feel Bigger

Add Multi-Tasking Nightstand

Swap out your tiny night table that fits only a lamp for mini-dressers on either side of the bed. These will not only be a home for your reading lamp, alarm clock, glasses and cell phone, but you can also use the small drawers for socks, underwear, ties, or even sweaters, so you can downsize your dresser and declutter your closet. Add mirrors behind your nightstand lamps, to create the illusion of space by reflecting light and brightening the space.
