When you have a narrow, small bedroom, the way you organize your furniture will directly influence your perception of the available space inside a room. Here are some of my favorite tips for arranging furniture in a small bedroom…
Combine two types of furniture into one
A great option for small bedrooms is a bed-desk or a hidden bed. It is assembled like a bunk bed, with the difference that the bed below is a desk where you work. Place it against the wall that is farthest from the door. Note: You should cover the walls in a way that there is an empty space left in the middle of the room, even if it has only the size of a narrow corridor.
If you do not want to have a combination bed-desk, place a desktop close to a window and, if possible, on the same wall of your bed’s headboard. Place the desk about one foot from the bed or on the other side of the window.
Wall of closets
Instead of using a dresser with wide drawers, get a high one to take advantage of vertical space. Even if you don’t get to the highest drawers, you can use them to store winter clothes or stuff that you don’t need on a daily basis.
If you find a closet with the same height as your small bedroom (or if you get one built customized) it would help keep the room dust-free, as no dust will stay stuck at the top.
Bedside table hacks
You might want to consider living without a bedside table. But, if you prefer having one, consider putting a desk right next to the bed. It could double as a workspace, and a place to set your alarm clock.
Space for the television
If there is a television in your bedroom, consider putting in a support system for attaching the TV to the wall, so you can have more space to move around in your small bedroom and make the most of your table space.
