8 Small Farmhouse Bedroom Ideas That Don’t Sacrifice Style for Space

by Monika Bürger

Having a small space doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your favorite farmhouse bedroom decor ideas. In fact, petite sleeping quarters, or even a guest room, can still have all of the same country-style flairs as a larger space. We’d go so far as to say a small bedroom even enhances every cozy farmhouse design idea because tinier areas can be automatically comforting and warm.

If you’re looking for ways to maximize the square footage as part of your small country bedroom makeover, we have a few ideas to get you started. The key here is incorporating multifunctional bedroom furniture, light fixtures that double as home decor, and a simple color scheme to get the rustic farmhouse effect.

1. Find lighting that doubles as art.

It’s all about being multifunctional when it comes to small farmhouse room ideas. Pick pieces that really pack a punch. This beautiful farmhouse lamp does more than just light the space. It also adds some flair and doubles as an art piece. You won’t need to clutter up your small side table with any other trinkets if you’re using a decorative fixture like this.

You went for the duvet… you fancy, huh? Now it’s time to finish the job and dress it up with some premium design. Our natural fiber cotton duvet covers feature your favorite artist’s design on the front. The lightweight cotton offers a more breathable option to keep you cool in the summer and toasty in the winter. Plus, just like your favorite pair of jeans, our cotton bedding gets softer after each wash! Available in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen and King sizes.

2. Prioritize neutral colors to make your modern farmhouse bedroom feel open.

Your small farmhouse bedroom will look beautiful when outfitted in light, neutral paint colors and textiles that keep the space open and airy. Plus, you can’t go wrong with white walls covered in shiplap. They combine rustic and minimalist touches in the best way.

Add throw pillows to whatever room needs an extra dose of comfy. Filled with a fluffy faux down insert, you don’t have to sacrifice comfort for style. Available in four sizes and all measurements are made without pillow insert.

3. Keep furniture small but impactful.

A rustic farmhouse bedroom design calls for some stunning wood furniture pieces. Whether you’re opting for modern farmhouse style or a more traditional iteration, you’ll probably want barn wood that looks like you just brought it in from outside. This end table resembles a fresh log, but it’s still petite enough to work in a guest bedroom.

Give your pillows the makeover they deserve. Whether it’s for your fancy new memory foam or your old go-to from back in the day, our pillow shams are sure to do your pillows proud. Whether you choose the natural fiber cotton or soft, premium microfiber—our pillows shams are soft and cozy with colors that really pop. Available in Standard or King sizes.

4. Use room decor that can be tucked away to save space.

What we love about this particular farmhouse look is that the wooden and leather stools can easily be folded up and tucked away to save floor real estate. This is a great space-saving hack when you have a small bedroom. Consider pieces like this or foldaway tables. Then slide them right under an iron bed frame when necessary. Want another country living bedroom piece? Go for a barn door! It’ll add so much character without taking up extra space.

Our folding stools offer a lightweight, yet a style-forward way to get your lounge on. There’s no better way to experience the outdoors than with your feet kicked back and a cold drink in hand, add in your unique sense of style and you truly can have it all. The woven polyester top is spill and splash resistant so you can take and use anywhere you feel like lounging.

5. Install rustic hooks that work as wall decor.

One unfortunate side effect of a small bedroom might be having a tiny closet. In fact, you may not have a designated clothing storage area at all. And if that’s the case, it’s time to get creative with wall art. Consider hanging rustic hooks or a wooden peg rail, so your coats or hats can look chic while also having proper storage. Plus, this farmhouse decorating idea will allow you to showcase pieces you love.

Our floor cushions are the super comfy and style-forward option for the boho side of us all. They’re UV coated to protect against fading and water-resistant so you can avoid scrambling to bring them inside whenever there’s a touch of weather. Grab a few to have on hand whenever seating is hard to come by or for a fun option for kids to use out in the yard.

6. Use small pops of color for brightness.

Rustic style is typically fairly neutral, but pops of color are also right on-trend. In a small farmhouse guest bedroom, a lot of vibrancy can feel overwhelming. So instead, limit the color to accessories. In this particular space, the wall-mounted bandanas above the headboard brighten things up. And while they’re tiny, they add just enough life into space. You could also opt for a vibrant lamp or bedroom sconce.

You’re getting verrrrry sleeeeepy. (But someone needs to tell Netflix to chill. Yes, we’re still watching!) It’s easy to get lost in sleep in our warm yet lightweight natural cotton comforters. The natural fibers offer a breathable option to keep you cool in the summer and toasty in the winter. Plus, just like your favorite pair of jeans, our cotton bedding gets softer after each wash! Available in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, and King sizes.

7. Use pillows as decor for a farmhouse feel.

Being conscious of space means making sure your farmhouse bedroom items serve a dual function. As we mentioned, the right lighting can have multiple purposes, and so can throw pillows. Let them be decorative ​and​ cozy. Chances are you have at least a couple of pillows on your bed, which means you can dress them up with rustic shams and cases.

Our customers tell us ALL the time how soft and warm our Throw Blankets are (the secret: Sherpa fleece). Even better, they get softer the more you wash them. They’re a perfect addition to any living room couch. Featuring a crisp, vivid design on the front with a reverse white side.

8. Hang lights from the ceiling.

When space is at a premium, look up. You can still get your favorite farmhouse decor elements into a tiny bedroom, especially if you hang the light fixture from the ceiling. In this small farmhouse bedroom, the rustic chandelier creates a warm and inviting feel but takes up zero floors or wall space. It also perfectly complements the metal bed frame.

Our blackout window curtains are a denser alternative to your standard window curtain, blocking out most light and proudly featuring your favorite designs. Whether you live in a busy apartment or a peaceful neighborhood, it’s always nice to have the option to shut out the sun and relax inside by the candlelight. Available in either single or double panel options.
