Arranging furniture in your new bedroom should be done thoughtfully to create a space that’s both functional and comfortable. Here are some guidelines to help you with the arrangement:

Start with the Bed: As the largest piece of furniture and the focal point of the room, the bed should be positioned first. Ideally, place it against the largest wall or in a spot that offers a pleasing view upon entering the room. Avoid placing the bed under windows if they are frequently opened or are drafty.

Maintain Accessibility: Ensure there is enough space to walk around the bed. It’s recommended to have at least 60-75 cm of clearance on each side of the bed and at the foot to allow for easy movement.

Consider the View and Light: Position the bed where you can enjoy the view from the window, but also consider the light. If you’re sensitive to morning light, avoid positioning the bed directly facing east.

Symmetry: For a balanced look, try to arrange furniture symmetrically. For example, place bedside tables on either side of the bed. This creates a harmonious and organised look.

Wardrobe Placement: If the room has a built-in wardrobe, this won’t apply, but if you use a freestanding wardrobe, place it on a wall that is convenient to access from the bed. Ensure it doesn’t block natural light or the path to the bed.

Create a Seating Area: If space permits, a small seating area with a chair and a side table can add functionality and comfort to the bedroom.

Dresser or Chest of Drawers: Position the dresser or chest in a spot that is accessible but out of the main traffic flow. If you use a mirror with the dresser, consider the view and light reflection it will create.

Desk or Workspace: If you need a workspace in your bedroom, position it near a window for natural light. Ensure it doesn’t encroach on the sleeping area and maintains a separation of work and relaxation spaces.

Avoid Overcrowding: Don’t overcrowd the room with furniture. Keep it simple and functional. Too much furniture can make the room feel cramped and restrict movement.

Final Touches: Add rugs, artwork, and decorative items to create a personalised and inviting space.

Remember, the layout should suit your personal needs and preferences while ensuring comfort and functionality. The arrangement should reflect how you intend to use the bedroom and maximise the available space.
