Your bedroom is the first place you leave, and the last you return to every day. While Singapore homes are not as spacious as the ones seen in movies and TV shows, it doesn’t mean you can’t have the master bedroom of your dreams!

Here are 14 ideas to create space in your small master bedroom, so you and your significant other can live with a clear mind.


1. Merge Rooms Together

Typical HDBs are small in size, but you don’t have to conform. Who says there isn’t enough space? Break the rules by hacking down a wall to combine two rooms together. This will allow more area for couples who want more ease and flexibility in their room layout.


2. Play With Colours & Stripes

The default colour to make your room feel spacious is white, but that doesn’t always have to be the case. White can sometimes cause a room to look cold. Opt for soft neutrals, just a little away from white, to make your room feel more inviting.

You can also pick warm pastel colours such as millennial pink to visually enlarge a small space. Even though the shades are slightly darker, they still reflect natural light in the room well.

Below is a guide summarising the colours that can expand your small space:

An option for bringing patterns into the design is to make it both functional and decorative. For instance, horizontal stripes help a room appear wider, while vertical stripes optically heightens the space, making it look taller.

Cut Out A Section For A Walk-in Wardrobe

You don’t have to move to a landed property for the opportunity to have a walk-in wardrobe. You can have that, right in your HDB master bedroom. Here are 3 ways to create one:

3. L-shaped Wardrobe

This style is optimal for homeowners who like the minimalist look. You have 2 adjacent walls for storing your clothing and accessories, utilising corner space. Not only does this arrangement open up sufficient foot space, it also prevents the bedroom from looking cluttered.

4. Galley Style Wardrobe

The layout requires a width of about 2 metres for moving between the divider and clothes gallery. While this style maximises height space by going from ceiling to floor, there are chances that you’ll need to downsize your bed to accommodate more area for seamless moving.

5. See-through Enclosed Wardrobe

An alternate solution is to carve out a small corner section of the bedroom for your wardrobe. Avoid completely boxing up the closet with solid opaque material as it will make the space feel very cramped.

Instead, use transparent glass paneling. It allows more light to pass through, which helps the room have a smoother appearance and easier for you to view your clothing.

Just remember to keep your little corner uncluttered!


6. Add Light Curtains & Blinds

Dark and heavy curtains may have a classy appeal, but it will only make your small master bedroom appear more shrunken. Go for sheer fabrics, to let as much natural lighting in, while preventing direct glare from the sun.

If privacy is a concern, opt for blinds. The slats are an effortless way to control the amount of light coming in and allow you to shield the room from prying eyes when needed.


Creative Headboard Styling For Extra Storage

Normally, bedside tables are the norm for extra storage purposes. If you’re not blessed in that department, take creativity up a notch with pull-out slim drawers in your bed’s headboard! They can assist with hiding away knick knacks, especially for working towards a minimalist sleeping space.

8. Creating Recessed Shelves In The Walls

Conversely, having an in-built recessed shelf or a few allows seamless storage and display, which livens up your room. You can keep various night-time items, such as a scent diffuser or a row of books that you want to read.

9. Surrounding Bookshelves

For bookworms who don’t have enough room for a whole bookshelf, your small library can be made right above the bed! Transform the area on top of your bed into an open-shelved mini library, or have the headboard do double duty – leave a few out for display while the other closed shelves can function as storage.

10. Overbed Wardrobe Storage

 Maximise vertical spaces to the fullest with this unique way of having your walk-in wardrobe right beside you. You can opt to replace the usual doors with a mirror panel to make the bedroom look wider!

11. Functional Platform Beds

Having a platform in your bedroom adds an element of visual interest. Not only does it help to divide the space, it provides a functional benefit with its hidden slide-out or top-opening storage. For easy organization and retrieval of items in deep under-bed drawers, utilise storage bags to group similar items together.


Vanity Tables That Blend In Well

12. Camouflage It In Your Wardrobe

For a unique vanity that doesn’t stand out the minute you walk in, try a hidden one, right in the middle of your closet. For an extra design boost, make sure the set up incorporates similar features from your wardrobe’s exterior. For example, your vanity’s seat can be a part of the doors, expanding out when you need it. 

The best part? You won’t have unnecessary used space, because once you’re finished, the vanity is ready to be stored away once again.

13. Part of your workstation

Busy workers with room space constraints who want a multifunctional space to study and be able to accomplish their beauty routines, this is great for getting the best of both worlds! Whenever you need to get ready, flip open the desk board to reveal your well kept beauty essentials safely hidden inside, ready to use.

And don’t forget to compartmentalise your space with drawer organizers! You wouldn’t want to be digging amongst your beauty stash just to retrieve an item.

14. Bedside Vanity Extension

Upgrade a regular bedside vanity to one that serves your beauty needs well and optically expands the room space! With the drawers, conceal your makeup and skincare items. A full length mirror next to the window doesn’t just help your beauty routines – it also reflects incoming natural light, which adds to the room’s airy feel.
