How to Arrange Your Bedroom Furniture

How to Arrange Your Bedroom Furniture

It’s an art of bedroom furniture arrangement, and it’s one of the most significant aspects of interior design. That isn’t to suggest you need to be an expert to do it well. You can do fairly well on your own, and have some fun along the way, with just a little thought and willingness to try.

The bedroom is one of the most difficult rooms to design, especially if it is small. Fortunately, there are a few easy ideas and tactics for arranging bedroom furniture.

Seven Easy Steps to Arranging your Bedroom Furniture

These methods will help you organize your home like an expert now that you know the basics.

Only use furniture that is necessary

There are many items you may have in your bedroom, but you should start with what you absolutely require. Trying to work with a lot of different items can quickly become a jumble, and you may not need them all in the end.

This is especially crucial in small apartments with limited extra space; employing fewer pieces will make the area appear and feel much larger. If your room is very small, taller dressers and shelves might provide additional storage while taking up less space.

Consider the function

Thinking about what you’re going to do is the best approach to keep your bedroom to only what you need. You may design around what you want and need to do in your bedroom if you have a good concept of what you want and need.

Find a layout that works well for you if you watch a lot of TV in bed. Plan a passage from one location to another – you don’t want the path between the dresser and the mirror to be blocked while you’re trying to make sure your clothing is looking it’s best.

Draw it out

Sketching out different furniture arrangements is easier than moving furniture around the room. It will stop you from making costly mistakes like assuming something will fit when it won’t, or scratching your floor or walls when rearranging your dresser for the zillionth time (believe us, it happens).

Take the measurements of your room and at least your largest furniture (bed, dresser, bookshelf, etc.) before sketching out a few potential options.

Start with the bed

You’ll have to move stuff around the space at some point, not just around your drawing. Get the bed in first because it is the most significant aspect of the room (it’s right there in the name). In general, you should place it against the wall opposite the door or the largest wall with no windows, although your preference may differ.

That might not work in a small bedroom. Choose a location for your bed that makes the most sense to you, but make sure you can open and close the doors to your bedroom and closet. Additionally, while positioning your bed near windows is perfectly acceptable from a design standpoint, you may have drafts during the winter.

Arrange the furniture you have first

Before you go out and buy new furniture, make sure you’ve arranged the ones you already have. This should go without saying, yet it’s all too easy to buy stuff you don’t need before you actually do.

You’ll know exactly what you need and where you want to place it if you wait until you’ve organized what you currently have. You’ll also be able to ensure that everything you buy is the proper size and style to fit in the space, both physically and stylistically.

Place your area rug properly

Don’t be afraid to experiment

There are numerous principles for arranging bedroom furniture, some of which are listed in this article. They’re only guidelines; there’s no right or wrong way to go about it. Simply determine what works best for you and your surroundings.

During your first few weeks in your new flat, you can experiment with other layouts if you want. When you have less items to move around, it’s easier, and you’ll know when you’ve found one that works.
