Arranging bedroom furniture can feel like fitting puzzle pieces in place, especially if the bedroom is small and the furniture is big. Beds, dressers, night stands, and Msofas all take up a lot of space. The following are a few tips for arranging bedroom furniture that will make a small space more livable.
Keep The Entrance Clear
The first thing to keep in mind when arranging furniture is to keep the entrance free. The door should open all the way, and a person should be able to walk in the room without having to walk around any furniture to get to the bed or bathroom.
Put The Bed In The Middle, If Possible
The most convenient place for the bed is in the middle of a wall. That way, people can get into the bed from either side, and it’s easy to make the bed when both sides are free. However, if the bedroom is for a single person, putting the bed against two walls can save a lot of space. Some people even create a loft inside the bedroom by placing a twin or standard bed on a high platform and making the space underneath available for use.
Put The Chest Of Drawers In The Closet
If the closet is large enough, consider putting a dresser, wardrobe, or chest of drawers in it. This can free up a lot of floor space in the bedroom. Consider adding clothing storage to the inside of the closet door in order to make more room for a piece of furniture.
Make A Sketch
After choosing a place for the bed, measure the perimeter of the room and all the furniture that needs to go in it and try making a plan with pencil and paper. Sketching out a room design or even cutting out colored blocks of paper to scale and moving them around on the shape of the room can be a good way to try out ideas without doing too much heavy labor.
Most experts recommend that people place the furniture they already have before buying any new pieces. That way, they will know what size to shop for. For the best prices on wardrobes, check out this Wardrobes Sale.
