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.
Size.The first consideration for your chest of drawers is the size that you need. In a tiny room, look for a tall slim chest that won't stick out too far from the wall but will offer you plenty of storage. Slim chests can be quite narrow so check the width and make sure that this is suitable for what you intend to put in the drawers. You also need to look at the depth of the drawers – if for example you're looking to store jumpers, very shallow drawers won't be suitable. In a child's room, consider what height the chest of drawers will need to be for the child to be able to reach the top drawer comfortably. A low set of drawers will be easier to reach and less likely to tumble over if your child decides to climb on it. It is advisable to secure the drawers to the wall with a wall strap anyway, to avoid any accidents. Avoid placing the drawers underneath a window where they could be used to climb up.
Don't feel like you need to match your bedside tables. It can work just as well when you choose two different styles, as long as there is a common thread that brings the two together. This might be a matching colour, similar shape or size. For instance one side of the bed may have more room where you can put a larger chest of drawers or console, while the other side has a smaller table in the same wood finish. Or you might choose a more masculine style for his side and a feminine table for her, in a similar size or shape. Again, don't be afraid to try new things and create an area that works for you. Colour and material choice will help dictate the style you create within your bedroom so pay close attention to this. For a coastal and beachy look you may choose natural materials like rattan or white-washed timber, or for a more industrial look, metal and timber may work well.
