12. Take a Lesson from this Millennial Tiny House by Build Tiny
This tiny home is all about saving space without sacrificing its modern minimalistic design. You can apply the same principle to your small bedroom.
Save a lot of space by having storage cabinets as part of a divider that separates your bathroom from the rest of the bedroom. There’s also the ingenious space-saving idea of having a lofted floor above it for your bed.
Even more impressive are the cabinets designed to fit flush a pull-out staircase to reach the bed. You can push it back in when not in use to save even more space.
This design would work if your ceiling is high enough for the crawl space above, and you can stand comfortably in the bathroom below.
11. Storage Bed Ideas to Accommodate Your Entire Wardrobe
If you try this terrific storage bed on steroids hack, you’ll have enough space to fit your whole wardrobe.
The project requires four 3-drawer MALM dressers, two MALM beds, two 2-drawer nightstands, and a headboard.
You’ll join two dressers together for each side of the bed. You’ll also add two smaller 2-drawer nightstands facing the same way as the dressers.
Next, you’ll install only the long sides of the MALM beds at the top to form a square bed frame. Most assembly involves various struts and screws to join the pieces together.
Finally, attach an Ikea headboard with pull-out side drawers, but facing the wall. You’ll end up with a low-level shelf at the back to place your lamps.
10. Complete Your Small Bedroom with this DIY Entry Closet Shelves
With these DIY shelves for your entry closet, you can organize your items and keep your minimalist bedroom clutter-free.
Using 1×4” cleats screwed on the sides and back of the closet, place your bottom shelf cut from 3/4” plywood about 16” deep. Make sure the cleats are level before doing this.
Do the same for the middle shelf. Add vertical 1×4” columns under each plywood in the middle to prevent sagging.
Next, build the frame using 3/4” plywood for the open box shelves a foot deep. You’ll install the box with four levels reaching the top shelf.
Add a dowel rod to hang your clothes between the left wall and box. Lastly, paint it to your desired color.
9. Portland Master Bedroom Reveal (How to Pull Together Your Own Dreamy Suite)
One of the keys to a beautiful minimalist design, especially for a Portland master bedroom, is neutral colors.
In the example, the predominant color used is white on the walls and ceilings. Even the curtains are plain white. They added a small touch of gray on the blinds, beddings, pillows, and a large area rug for a bit of color.
The black windows and the curtain rods provide a striking contrast. There are also a couple of black and white lampshades on the nightstands. But what catches the eye is the dark canopy bed frame, and is the bedroom’s centerpiece.
Moreover, placing a few plants and colorful wall art would add more character to the room without overpowering its black and white minimalist theme.
8. DIY Custom Closet Organizer and Makeover: The Brilliant Box System
What makes this DIY closet organizer straightforward to build are identical sized rectangular boxes.
Cut the bottom and side panels of each box from 3/4” birch plywood and assemble them with glue. Remember that the height must be precisely half of the width.
Use an impact driver to screw the boxes together and to the walls. Stack them on top of one another either horizontally or two vertically to create a tower on the right.
The vertical ones have a middle level and will form four small squares when placed side-by-side. Extend the top shelf of this tower by attaching two more boxes on the left.
Lastly, install two dowel bars in the free space under the top shelf.
7. Build this Cheap DIY Glossy Dresser with Oriented Strand Board (OSB) Drawers
This modern but cheap DIY glossy 8-drawer dresser would make a sweet addition to your minimalist bedroom.
All panels used for the frames are of 3/4” plywood and put together with pocket screws and wood glue.
What makes it unique are the drawer faces. You cut them from oriented strand boards (OSB) and give them a glossy clear lacquer finish.
For this design, you’ll need eight drawers – four wide ones on the left section and four narrow ones on the right. Installing black square tube handles will give them an elegant touch.
A vertical 3/4” plywood divides the two sections. The dresser stands on six cylindrical legs with a black finish the same as all the frame panels.
6. Make a Feature Wall in Your Bedroom with This Simple DIY Board Batten Tutorial
A simple DIY board batten installation is a fantastic idea to liven up a featureless wall inside a minimalist master bedroom.
You can turn the wall behind your bed into a surprisingly elegant accent wall with a grid batten pattern.
First, measure the wall and determine how best to divide it with a large square grid. Use a nail gun with finish nails to install 11/16” thick by 2-1/2” wide pre-primed MDF strips for a quick install.
You’ll start with the vertical strips and use a level to ensure they’re plumb. Cut more MDF and add the horizontal ones, again utilizing the level. Fill all the nail holes and gaps with putty and then paint.
5. Behind the Design: A Dreamy Boho Bedroom Makeover
If you want a more exotic-looking bedroom, try a boho design. It’s more handmade and natural-looking elements that make up the style.
You can start with bare white walls and ceilings for a minimalist boho bedroom and build your idea of a Zen oasis from there. Maybe add some furniture with light natural wood tones.
For example, you can add white nightstands with legs having a natural finish. You can place a live edge wooden bench at the foot of the bed. Why not add a sofa chair with earth-toned upholstery in a corner?
You can also decorate with plants, a straw hat on the wall, or add some handmade textured throw pillows. The choice is yours.
4. Optimize an Awkward Corner with this DIY Cleat Shelves – The Easiest Closet Shelves Ever (According to the Experimenter)
Cleats have been – for the longest time – one of the most uncomplicated methods of installing shelves.
It’s the go-to solution to organize closets located in tight corners. 1×2” boards should be enough for short shelves. Figure out how many you need and measure their height before adding cleats.
Make sure that you’re driving screws into solid wood by using a stud finder. Always use a level – a short one in this case – when adding shelves.
Next, cut the plywood to the depth you want, and closely follow the interior dimensions for a tight fit. Once the shelves are complete, you can prime and paint them in any color you like.
3. DIY Minimalist Daybed with Storage
This minimalist daybed is a simple large storage chest. It doubles as seating and a bed for guests who stay over.
You build it primarily with 3/4” plywood and lots of finishing nails. Cut the lid and bottom to the dimensions of the bed, plus an extra 1’ to the length for décor. The side panels are about 14” high.
Inside, create three sections by adding two dividers. First, sand down all surfaces with 220 grit sandpaper, and use 180 grit for the edges before assembly.
Finally, attach the lid with four 3” hinges. Apply wood oil for a lovely natural-looking finish.
2. DIY Gold Chevron Wall and Small Room Makeover
An accent wall with a gold chevron pattern will work wonders for a small bedroom.
After painting the walls to a light pinky beige color and letting it dry, you can start drawing the patterns using gold sharpie pens.
Use a fat ruler and first draw all the vertical lines about 9-1/2” apart up to the ceiling. Mark 6” from the baseboard on one line. Next, draw a diagonal down to the bottom of the two beside it.
Use these diagonals as guides for the angles and the ruler as a spacer. Keep adding lines until you’ve filled the wall with the pattern.
Lastly, Number 1. Build a Ladder for Your Upper Closet that Double Functions as a Storage Solution Too
A neat way to build a ladder is by turning the steps into the lids of various height storage boxes.
First, cut all the 3/4” plywood pieces for all the boxes you’ll need from the smallest first step up to the highest one. Add a bottom inside each box at the height you want for easy access to your items.
Use a nail gun and wood glue to assemble each container and join them with some wood screws. To open the lids fully, use kitchen cabinet door hinges.
As you might have noticed, there are a ton of ideas that you can try, but none of the solutions presented here are boring or would be out of place in a minimalist bedroom.
Plus, following them is straightforward and not too tricky. Best of all, it won’t burn a hole in your pockets.
