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.
Arrange the Furniture You Have First. Another quick tip before you get started: Don't buy new furniture until you've arranged the pieces you already have. That way you'll know the exact furniture you need, along with the dimensions and style you're looking for. Draw it Out. It's a good idea to experiment with different arrangements on paper before you start pushing furniture around the room. That way you can eliminate some options that won't work without potentially scratching your floor or walls while moving your dresser for the zillionth time (believe me, it happens). Measure at least your biggest items (bed, dresser, shelves, etc.), as well as the dimensions of your room, then sketch out a couple of different options. If you're not much of an artist, check out an app that can do the job for you. Try Home Design 3D (iOS) or Floor Plan Creator (Android).
What's Your Decorating Style? If you love all things contemporary, you won't be happy with a rustic, country bedroom set. If you have a beloved decorating style, you'll want furniture that complements it. That doesn't mean you should lock yourself in a rigid mindset, however: a great deal of bedroom furniture is transitional in style, meaning somewhere in between traditional and modern. That means it generally works well with most decorating themes. Do You Want a Matched Set? While it's certainly safe to buy a complete, matched set of bedroom furniture, it's not required and it's not even necessarily the best choice. In a very traditional or formal room, a matched set looks great, but in more casual styles, too much matchy-match can be stifling or boring. Instead, choose a variety of pieces that complement – but don't perfectly match – each other and the overall decorating style of the room. Is the Room Shared? If two people share the room, whether that's two siblings or a married couple, you need to take both people into account when choosing furniture. If it's two siblings, you'll need beds for each. For any shared room, both inhabitants need a dresser or chest of drawers to hold their clothing and a nightstand or bedside table with a lamp. You'll also need to think about both people's tastes and desires. Compromise may be necessary, but nobody should be unhappy with their bedroom.
