How to Arrange Furniture in a Bedroom

One of the most important parts of the interior design is furniture arrangement. It is, indeed, art and to do it well you have to be a pro. However, you can do quite well all by yourself and can also have a lot of fun along the way.

It is not easy to design a bedroom, especially if it is small. Here are some tips to arrange furniture in your bedroom.

Use only essential furniture

In the bedroom, you can do a lot of things, but start with what you have. It will become a mess if you try to work with a lot of different items, and you might not be able to fit in all the things as well.

In small apartments when there is not much extra space this is especially important. The room will look and feel more spacious if you use fewer pieces. Use taller shelves and dressers if your room is very small. This will take up less room but more storage.

Start with the bed

You have to move things around the actual room at some point. Get the bed in place first since it is the most important part of the bedroom. Put it against the wall with no windows. However, there is no hard and fast rule. You can make your choice.

This may not work in small bedrooms. Choose whichever spot that makes the most sense to you. Just make sure that the bed is not blocking your closet and bedroom doors. From a design perspective, it is totally ok to place your bed under the windows.

Start from big to small

After arranging the bed you can start arranging everything else. The rule is to start with the biggest furniture item and then move on to smaller ones. After bed, place the dresser, followed by bedside tables, desk, chairs, and other things. Generally, the dresser will be on the opposite wall, the tables will go next to the bed, and a desk in the corner, but you can make changes.

Small-bedroom tip: See if you can fit your dresser inside the closet. But this will be possible only if the closet is big. You will get a lot of extra space this way.

Place your area rug properly

After finalizing the entire room layout you can decide on the placement of area rug.

To create a cushy area near the bed while you step out area rugs can be placed underneath the lower two-thirds of the bed. Your rug can be placed elsewhere as well. For instance, in the centre of the open part of the room, or next to the bed.

Arrange what you have first

Until you’ve arranged the pieces you already have don’t buy new furniture. You’ll know exactly what you need only if you arrange what you have first. You will also get to know the style and the right dimensions.

Don’t be afraid to experiment

When it comes to arranging bedroom furniture there’s no real right or wrong way to do it. What works for you and your space is the best. Try experimenting with different layouts.

Think about function

Decide what you’re going to need and want to do in the bedroom, and design accordingly. If you watch a lot of TV you can design the room around it.

Draw it out

Instead of moving furniture an easy option is to sketch out various furniture arrangements. This will save you a lot of trouble and scratches on your walls and floors.
