This apartment bedroom in Göteborg, Sweden might be small but it's just brimming with inspiration. If you have a compact bedroom and you're looking for solutions, take heed:

Storage: Kitchen-style upper cabinets are installed high on the wall above the head of the bed. Their white finish and plain design blend in with the wall, creating a niche for the bed.
Color: An accented wall reinforces the idea of the bed niche.
Proportion: The room is narrow. Rather than split the difference for symmetry's sake, the bed is pushed to one side to provide one usable space alongside the bed.
Efficiency: Extra clutter is eliminated. One example: lighting at the bed is built into the cabinets above. A bedside lamp would just be one more thing taking up space where every inch counts.
