    Hello, Of course. The lamp is the bargain of the century and is from IKEA. I have adapted it by painting it all white, which maks it feel more in keeping with this look. If I can be of further help, please let me know. x

Create partitionsAt first glance, you might assume the bed would go along the flat wall in this tiny room, but the team at Whitstable Island Interiors had other ideas. They tucked the bed beneath the sloping roof and built some nifty storage around it. Each section has been measured out to accommodate essential items, and the partition between the bed and ‘wardrobe’ is the perfect spot for a wall light. By creating one multi-functioning area, the designers have freed up space in the rest of the room for other items.

Go back to basicsOne of the oldest – and easiest – tricks in the book for enhancing the sense of space is going for an all-white scheme. And not just on the walls, but on the flooring and furniture, too, in order to avoid creating large breaks in the visual plane. If that’s too stark for your taste, try introducing one or two subtle and complementary shades with accessories – or even a few shots of bold colour like the books in this bedroom. The amount of natural light a space gets also determines how you perceive its size, so consider using a paint that contains light-reflective particles, available in most DIY stores. This will help to subtly boost a sense of openness by increasing the amount light reflected around the room.

Extra hangersThere are never enough hangers in student rooms and the ones that you do find clattering around in the wardrobe are usually the thin metal ones that can leave marks in the shoulders of tops and jumpers. To make your wardrobe feel a bit more cared for, take a stack of your own from home or buy a few new ones to ensure you have a well-ordered space to arrange all your clothes.
