When you have a small bedroom, it’s hard to envision bringing many styles to the space. You have what’s necessary for your room, trying to cram everything in one tiny space. Just remember one key point: Every room needs a focal point. This means that your bed will most likely be that eye-catching spot in the room. Namely, the head of the bed will be what catches your eye. Below, you’ll find some more tips to make the most use of your small bedroom. 


Think Open


While it can be tempting to try and cram things into a small room, making the most use of every inch of space possible, you want to actually do the opposite. This means placing beds against the walls or near a window, buying a smaller sized bed, and finding furniture that’s not overwhelming. Other tricks are to eliminate the headboard and footboard or use more see-through options for the furnishings. 


Keep It Bold And Unique


Just because you have a small bedroom doesn’t mean that the space needs to be bland. Don’t be afraid to either make the room bold with color or rich with texture. Choose your color palette wisely. Don’t be afraid to express yourself or whoever the resident of the room is. Is the small bedroom a nursery? Keep it light and fun. Don’t make the room too stuffy. If the bedroom belongs to a sports fan, hang lots of favorite sports memorabilia photos. Often, if a room has a lot of expression, it distracts from the small size of the space. The idea is to make your bedroom special, no matter what size it is.   


Everything Is Potential Storage 


In a small bedroom, storage can be a problem. There’s many creative solutions to solve this space dilemma. You can put the bed up on blocks for more under bed storage. Use a storage chest as a bedside table. This will help you to have the furnishings you need, yet they will double as storage units.


Combat A Low Ceiling


The brighter a room, the less attraction will be drawn to a low ceiling. Slanted ceilings are often a problem in smaller bedrooms, but bright colors can combat the closed in feeling and leave the bedroom feeling more open.             


Furniture Tips


When shopping for furniture for your small bedroom, try to find pieces with rounded corners. This will help keep your limited walkway space in the room clear, as it takes up less space than traditional angled corners. You can really add character to a room using rounded nightstands, ottomans, and more accents.

You think a lot about ways to keep your family and property safe, but there are so many little things that need to be secured. If your home has sliding glass doors, you may not know how to secure them properly. Read on for steps on how to get your sliding glass doors completely secure.


Know The Risks


While sliding glass doors and windows provide your home with a lot of light, without the right coverage, thieves can see right into your home and view all of your belongings. Visibility is one of the most apparent security risks with sliding glass doors. 


The other fundamental risk is that these doors can slide off the track. If you’re unaware of it, it can be an easy way for criminals to get right into your home. Keep in mind that the locks on your sliding glass door may not be as secure as a traditional deadbolt lock that you have on your door.  


The Fix


A dowel rod is one of the easiest ways to secure your sliding glass door. This rod fits in the track of the sliding door to prevent the door from sliding at all. To make this fix efficient, you’ll need to measure the track and get a dowel that’s the perfect size to fit in the track. You also should ensure that the rod is thick enough.


Sensor alarms also exist that help you to identify when the door is open. An alar like this deters thieves and even alerts you as to when the door is being opened. This feature can be helpful if you have young children as well. 


Another security option for your sliding glass door is to install more heavy duty locks. Typical locks on sliding glass doors have latches that are shaped like a hook connecting to the door frame. These latches can be easily forced open. There are double bolted locks that allow for a more secure door. These locks can be a great addition to security along with the dowel rod since the locks are harder to break.


Check Your Door


Although it sounds painfully obvious, checking that your sliding glass door is locked every night before you head to bed will be an extra layer of security for your home. Make sure that the dowel rod is in place and any alarms that you have are set. Diligence is one of the best forms of security that you can have. It’s also vital that your door is functioning properly. Any problems that exist with the door should be addressed promptly.
