Think About Function. While figuring out how to arrange furniture in your new bedroom, think about your lifestyle. This could really affect where your furniture ends up. For instance, if you tend to watch a lot of TV in bed, you'll want to find a layout that works well for that. Also, plan your walkways. If your bed is blocking your path from the dresser to the mirror, you may find yourself a little annoyed down the road. Dive in Bed First. Once you're ready to put the pencil and paper (or app) down, and start actually arranging, begin with your bed. Traditionally, beds are placed on the wall opposite the door or the largest one with no windows. In a small bedroom, you may have to break these guidelines, though. Find a spot for your bed that makes the most sense to you, just make sure you can open and close your bedroom and closet doors. Also, while placing your bed under windows is totally OK from a design perspective, you may find yourself feeling uncomfortable drafts over the winter.
Do not place a bed under a window, if the window will frequently be open. Open windows can create uncomfortable drafts. Positioning a bed between two windows, however, works well. If your home is air-conditioned or heated year-round and the windows are seldom open, you may be able to ignore this rule. Do not place the bed where it obstructs a door into the room or a walkway through the room. Consider nontraditional furniture arrangements if doing so will free up space or use space in a more interesting way. For example, a bed may look dramatic placed in front of a secure window; on a diagonal, which takes up extra space; sideways along a wall, to maximize floor space; or in an alcove (a technique called lit clos).
Go Big to Small. When you've found the spot you think works best for your bed, arrange everything else starting with the biggest furniture item followed by smaller ones. Usually the dresser comes next, followed by bedside tables, a desk, shelves, chairs, and anything else you may have. Small-bedroom tip: If your closet is spacious, see if you can fit your dresser inside it. This will open up a lot of extra space (for activities!) in the room itself. Place Your Area Rug Properly. Though it's not a furniture item, your area rug placement will definitely depend on your room's finalized layout. Area rugs are typically placed underneath the lower two-thirds of the bed so they create a cushy area to step on as you get out of bed in the morning. If your bed is tucked into a corner, your rug will likely have to be placed somewhere else, like next to the bed or in the center of the open part of your room.
