Arranging furniture in a small bedroom has a great deal of challenges. You have to make room for the bed, clothing, and other personal items without feeling crowded. Here are my tips for arranging furniture in a small bedroom.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Start by choosing the right size of furniture for the room. The bed should be as small as possible for the people who would use it. This means a single person should go no bigger than full size, and a couple will want to consider a queen-size bed.

  2. 2

    Use modern, sleek, straight lined furniture that takes up less space than traditional overstuffed furnishings.

  3. 3

    Place the side of the bed near or close to the wall. For a couple, this means one side of the bed will have just enough space for a nightstand. This will also give a person enough room to walk around the bed.

  4. 4

    Take advantage of vertical space. Use tall dressers and armoires that minimise the amount of floor space they take up while maximising storage capability.

  5. 5

    Take advantage of hidden space. For extra storage, use under the bed drawers and storage containers. I recently saw side tables make of metal garbage pails with a wood topper and tablecloth to store off season clothing.

Tips and warnings

  • Eliminate non-essential items from the bedroom.
  • If you want a TV in the room, mount it high on the wall or place it on top of a tall dresser.
