The bed is the centerpiece and focal point in the bedroom. This is why its placement can easily make or break the space’s overall look, as how you position your bed could determine not only the focal point of your room, but also dictate how much space you can use for additional design.
As you would know, there are a few traditional ways in placing your bed inside a room. Most are unspoken rules like the bed should face the door, space on either side of the bed should be available, and blocking windows with the bed shouldn’t be done among others. However, with the current trends of downsizing one’s living space, these rules aren’t ideal for everyone anymore. With the space constraints, there’s really no need to follow the “rules”. What you need is to find a set up that will work for you.
To help you out in finding a great placement for your bed, here are some examples we’ve found from all over the web.
1. Up against the window.
Enjoy more natural lighting and fuss less about the wall art you need to hang – the view from outside your window can easily work as a wonderful decor by placing your bed against your massive windows.
2. Corner bed.
If you have a corner window in your bedroom, take advantage of it. Hopefully there’s enough sill space so you can place some random items like an alarm clock or lamp to help you settle in during the nights easier.
3. Against a wall.
Not a big fan of bedside tables? Why not push it against the wall instead? It may feel a bit like a dorm room, but some people find it more comfortable to sleep next to a wall, so why not give it a shot?
4. Right in the middle of the room.
Putting your bed right in the center of the room will really make it the center piece and focal point of the interior design. It can also allow you flexibility in using your space.
5. Next to the door.
Not because you have a small space does it mean you should settle for a small bed. As long as it fits inside your room and gives you leg space for getting out of bed in the morning, it could work out well.
Slanting your bed is a lot like putting the bed in the middle of the room, it emphasizes the bed heavily. It can also create an excellent visual interest for the space, perfect for those who want to experiment a bit more in designing their bedrooms.
If your room is shaped oddly or you just want to try something new, trying out these placements can prove to be helpful in not only designing your space, but in maximizing it as well. So the next time you’re planning to rearrange the furniture in your bedroom to give it a fresh look, give these unusual positions a shot and you may just nail a chic new layout for your bedroom.
