What can be easier than arranging bedroom furniture? Bed, nightstand or even two of them, dresser, chest, wallart optionally, and the comfortable bedding. It is a common mistake to think that it is simple. First of all, you have to consider the space available in your major bedroom, and think again what will fit and how to arrange it now. FurniturePick today shares few tips and advices on the bedroom arrangement (or possibly, rearrangement). Follow us to get to know more every week.
In a long and narrow space, face the bed to the window. In this case you will make the most of the view, and visually broaden the space. Let the dresser, chair, and mirror be placed opposite the doorway. If the space allows, place a pair of benches at the end of the bed for extra seating. For a good balance put couple of nightstands at both sides of the bed. Or, as an alternative idea, nestle the bed into an alcove, created by a built-in storage unit that includes two cabinet towers.
Solution for a square bedroom: place the bed to be the focal point and the room will feel grounded. Instead of usual bedroom storage furniture pieces – stretch storage up the wall with a freestanding armoire. Pair small-scale dressers to match the whole style of a room and use them as nightstands.
When considering the options, don’t be afraid to give your bed an unusual placement. Every space differs from another, and making a plan and playing with few options will give you the right idea. Placing a bench at the foot of the bed or a small armchair in a corner for seating. It will undoubtedly add comfort and visual appeal to your bedroom.
Use only few furniture pieces but of a larger scale to maximize the floor space in a small bedroom. Better choose the tall pieces, adding volume in a smaller footprint. When making a plan on a paper or in your mind, just remember about the passways and “traffic jams”. Allow 2 feet or more on both sides of the bed for a space to make the bed. Avoid placing the bed within 3 feet of the door. Otherwise the bed becomes an obstacle.
If you don’t need a lot of storage furniture, use a larger bed. (Why to sacrifice extra comfort?) Consider the visual weight of your headboard. If the bed looks like somewhat large for the room – use a lighter headboard. A huge headboard consumes more visual space. Tall ones work better in spacious bedrooms or bedrooms with tall ceilings.
