How To Arrange Your Bedroom Furniture? When it comes to your bedroom and arranging your bedroom furniture, there are a lot of things to think about; this is the room in which you will be spending a significant portion of your life, after all. Of course, the way you arrange your bedroom furniture can mean the difference not only in a good night’s sleep, but also in the functionality and style of your room.
Probably the first piece of furniture to consider is the bed, as it is the center piece of the bedroom and most likely the largest piece of furniture in the room. The bed is your focal point. One way to start off rearranging your bedroom furniture is by measuring your room with a tape measure.
Draw your room to scale on a piece of graphing paper. Don’t forget to measure the distance between windows, heaters and other similar objects. Next measure your furniture and create cut outs. Using these you can arrange and rearrange your bedroom furniture without having to actually touch anything. It also gives you good grip on the layout of your room; using a scale model allows you to see what works and what does not.
When it comes to the bed, usually this is placed against the first wall you see when entering your bedroom. The headboard should face you, as this is the main focal point. There are other things to consider when placing your bed. The bed should be arranged in such a way that it doesn’t create any obstructions. If your bedroom is on the smaller side, try pushing it against a wall to save space. Also, be sure not to block any doors; you don’t want to make it difficult to get to your clothes, for instance. While placing your bed near a window may sound romantic, it can actually end up being a bad idea. You’re likely to catch a cold from drafts, and the extra noise and light you’ll experience may disturb your sleep.
Be sure to avoid odd angles or spacing, especially if your bedroom is on the smaller side. Leave room on either side for a nightstand. Dressers and bureaus should be placed on an adjoining or opposite wall, so as not to add to much weight to one side of the room. Consider how much storage you need. If you have a closet, try to maximize that so as to avoid too much furniture clutter. You can place smaller chests or storage boxes at the foot of your bed. Also consider storing seasonal clothing under the bed.
If you do have a TV, think about where to place it without adding to the clutter. TV sets can take up a significant amount of room, unless you have flat screen, which can easily be hung on the wall opposite your bed. Otherwise try placing the TV at an angle, or if you have a large armoire, consider placing in there, so you can store it when it’s not in use. Still, you should avoid a TV set in your bedroom!
If you do have extra room, you can add a nice, comfy chair or two, in a corner or near a window – you can create a beautiful reading nook in your bedroom. Remember, when it comes to bedroom furniture, you have to make sure that you avoid clutter. Leave yourself some space to relax.
