How to Layout Furniture in a Bedroom?

Let me start with some facts about the size of a bed:  the typical bed for a single person is between 60″ and 84″ wide (1′ 6″ -2′ 3″). According to “Size and Measurements Guide for Bedroom Furniture”, the average persons sleep is around 75% from the width, which means that 75% of the space on your bed is taken by your body, so why don’t you give yourself more room by using all 60″-84″ (1′ 6″-2′ 3″) area? Don’t worry about looking like a pretentious snob or an elderly person who wants everything big and luxurious; this kind of illusion vanishes at first sight when other people come into your room! Besides, bearing in mind that many people nowadays prefer smaller beds with higher mattress heights these days , I think you can do better! Your carpet will thank you later 😉

Why don’t we talk about that before we design some furniture layout ideas in here?

Alright then – enough fun – let’s get started! As always, I’ll be splitting our conversation into several parts so there won’t be too much things to remember on our way through with this post 🙂 Let’s start with:

How do I go about planning out my functions? What would be good places for

Bedroom layout ideas

When you’re planning the layout of your bedroom, consider where the super king size bed should be placed. The best place is in the center of the room so that it doesn’t take up too much space and make the room feel smaller than it really is.

  • Place nightstands on either side of your bed; they’re practical for storing items like books, magazines or glasses when you’re getting ready for bed at night.
  • If there’s enough room for it, add another piece of furniture such as a chest of drawers or desk next to these items so that everything has its own place within easy reach from any angle within view without needing extra effort just because something might have been tucked away somewhere else earlier off-screen (or even out-of-frame).

Planning the main functions in a bedroom

A bedroom is a place of rest and relaxation, so it should be designed to be as comfortable as possible. The most important feature in any bedroom is the bed, which should be large enough for you to stretch out on without feeling cramped. It’s also important that there be ample storage space for clothes and other belongings so that your room doesn’t look cluttered or messy when it isn’t being used as a sleeping area.

The next thing you’ll want to consider when planning a new layout is where you want each piece of furniture placed–and how much room they will take up in terms of square footage on the floor plan (or how much space they need vertically). For example: if you’re going with two nightstands instead of one dresser/mirror combo unit like I did above, those two nightstands need somewhere else besides underneath each side table where they can go so there’s still room left over after placing them against opposite walls from each other at either end point where all four legs meet up evenly across both sides simultaneously without overlapping directly onto another set belonging solely unto itself due their own respective existence rather than sharing any overlap whatsoever during construction time periods (which would make me feel uncomfortable).

Check the orientation of your bed and windows

The orientation of your furniture is important, but it’s not the only thing to consider. Before you start arranging furniture in a bedroom, take a look at the overall layout of the room.

  • Check the orientation of your bed and windows. You want to make sure that you can see out of them comfortably during the day (and vice versa). If there’s not enough natural light coming into the room from these sources, consider adding lamps or other lighting fixtures so that they illuminate more effectively. You may also want to think about how much privacy you need from these areas–if privacy isn’t an issue for you, then placing large windows on opposite walls could give an open feeling while still allowing plenty of light into both sides at once!
  • Check where all doors go in relation to each other as well as flooring patterns such as rugs/carpets etc… This will help avoid any unwanted noise problems caused by people walking around too close together without realizing it!

Get rid of clutter and rearrange furniture

  • Get rid of clutter. Clutter is one of the main reasons why a bedroom feels cramped, so get rid of it by placing items in storage or giving them away. If you can’t bear to part with certain pieces, try making them less visible by storing them in another room or putting them in a box under your bed (if there’s enough space).
  • Rearrange furniture. You can use furniture placement to make your bedroom feel bigger and brighter–or darker and more intimate–depending on the mood you want to set for yourself and others who visit your home. Try moving things around until you find something that works for everyone involved!
