3 Unique Ways to Place a Double Bed in a Small Bedroom
Yes, getting stuck with a small bedroom is a bummer, but that doesn’t mean you can’t come up with practical ways to fit in your furniture inside without giving it a cramped look. Since a double bed is a must-have item for couples – and is usually on the large side – it takes up the bulk of the space in a room, so here are some ways you can arrange your bedroom so it looks aesthetically pleasing and lets you move around with ease:
1. Place bed in center of wall
In a bedroom, the bed should always take center stage, and there are generally several ways to place a bed so it becomes the focal point of the room. But your options are limited to a small bedroom, so placing your bed in the center of the room’s most visible wall is usually the best arrangement. The most visible wall is usually opposite the door, but the wall that runs perpendicular to the door on the left side may be a better option depending on the size of your bedroom.
2. Use the window wall
If you want a double bed to sleep in comfortably, but without blocking the closet door, try placing it against the window wall (in case it is wider). If the windows are symmetrical or the window is centered, it creates a visually appealing balance in the room. Try two smaller dressers flanking the bed in lieu of nightstands, especially when your bed is against the widest wall in the room. Want some more space at the foot of the bed? Place a narrow bench instead. Thus you have plenty of room to walk around both sides of the bed.
3. Place the bed on the side
If you need space for a double bed as well as a small desk in your bedroom, this layout is best suited for you. Push the bed slightly to one side, but leave a foot or two to walk around to the other side. Mismatched nightstands will look great with this arrangement, although you can exchange it with a small dresser if there is space. On the opposite wall, add a dresser, vanity, or desk, as per your requirements. In case bigger rugs don’t fit the space, a smaller runner on one side of the bed is a good idea.
Put your creative genius to work while designing your bedroom – smaller spaces are no longer an issue!
