I’m so honored to be part of the BHG Live Better Influencer Network where, as a blogger, I’ve received compensation by Better Homes & Gardens at Walmart. The opinions stated in Ideas to take advantage of a small room are my own.

Small spaces are always a challenge. But, a small room for 3 little people is more daring. No matter the size, I always find joy in decorating my daughters’ room. There’s much to do seasonally here, but specially when it comes to concealing all those messy areas. Sometimes rearranging the existing pieces is all this room needs. But adding some fundamental pieces to this space creates a big difference in how this area works.
A space for studying
My eldest daughter has completely outgrown her previous desk. She needed more space for storing all her school supplies (to keep them at hand), but also a place for some of her makeup. I replaced her old desk with this amazing Better Homes & Gardens Crossmark Campaign Desk. The modern and simple lines go perfectly with the style of the beds also from Better Homes & Gardens at Walmart.

This area wouldn’t be set without some modern accessories to update my teenager’s nook. A round mirror (Better Homes & Gardens, 28″ Round Metal Mirror) and a vintage inspired lamp (Better Homes & Gardens Bronze USB Desk Lamp) was all this space needed. Now, for a personal touch I painted the lamp with a gold spray paint so it could pair better with the rest of the accessories. Also, for the mirror I used a piece of ribbon to hang it from the wall but also to add a nice chic detail.
Playing round and round
Rearranging furniture can sometimes feel like a game of going round and round. But moving your basic pieces will definitively give the room a new air and look. In my daughters’ bedroom I normally move of the beds into a new position. But this time I decided to experiment by changing the desk to a new place. By moving it next to my teenager’s bed, I created a zone just for her. Now she’ll have a special area inside this room.
Hiding the word crowds
Yes, I confess! I buy books because I want my girls to fall in love with reading. But I secretly can never say no to a good illustration and inspiring story. But my hidden hobby was getting out of hand and I had to take action. In order to keep this area neat, I decided to place all the books inside these cute Better Homes & Gardens Velveteen Cube Storage Bins. The brass metal handle gives these bins a modern look and the storage itself makes this area feel more organize.
And now that I’m talking about organization; how about we give a proper place to all those stuffed dolls? Having them around is not an option in this small room. But I rather give them a special place where they can be showcase and organized at the same time. The Better Homes & Gardens Metal Wall Pocket, Galvanized Rustic Finish can be used in many ways. But for my daughters’ bedroom I loved using them for storing some of their stuffed dolls. Maybe when they outgrow this stage I can used these pockets for adding some greenery, or even more books!
Accessories make the difference in any decor. And one of my favorite ones in this room were the Better Homes & Gardens Peel and Stick Mirror Set. These beautiful butterfly come in a set of 10 pieces (in three different sizes) and add the perfect accent where it’s needed. My little ones love them and with the afternoon sun, they make this room even brighter.
Another accessory that I recently added was the Better Homes & Gardens Brushed Brass Finish Marble Base Uplight Table Lamp. I love the mix of vintage and modern lines of this lamp and use it as a night lamp over the bookcase (of course with a low watt bulb).
After this simple room refresh, this space is now spring ready. With some simple pieces and new furniture arrangement, my daughters’ bedroom now looks bigger and works more efficiently to their daily needs. What room are you tackling this spring season?
