Sleeping Furniture

When selecting bedroom furniture, it is important to choose a size (physical dimensions) and scale (sense of appearance) that will fit the room. Small-scale, low profile bedroom furniture with few pieces that is placed in a large, high-ceilinged room will dwarf the furniture and lessen the overall design effect. In contrast, a large set with many pieces will overpower a room and may prohibit easy movement around the bedroom furniture. The number of pieces that can be comfortably placed in a bedroom is an important consideration in addition to the bedroom furniture design.

Bedroom Furniture Layout
Measure the bedroom and sketch a layout of the bedroom furniture to be placed in the room. In addition to the bed, most people require a pair of bedside tables at a minimum. Consider the following:

- The bed is the focal point of the bedroom.
-
Find the best wall against which to place your bed and then place additional bedroom furniture around the bed.
-
Think about storage, sitting, and working (dressing) spaces.
-
Try to avoid placing the bed under a window or where it will obstruct a doorway or walkway through the room.
-
Pay attention to the how closet and other doors open into the room.
-
Ensure you leave enough space to walk around comfortably in the bedroom.
-
If built-in closet space is a minimum, consider reserving space for a dresser or armoire.

Other Bedroom Furniture
A small bedroom does not dictate small furniture. A lesser number of larger bedroom furniture may fit your room and needs. For example, substitute a tall wardrobe in place of a small chest of drawers and a dresser. A wardrobe can add height and drama to a room and double as an entertainment centre.

Other Considerations:
- At a minimum, bedside tables should be as high as the mattress and proportional to the scale of your bed.
- Be sure to consider adequate storage.
- Clutter can affect the romance and feel of a room, so find storage spaces for spare change, jewelry and other items that may end up in a bedroom.
- Eliminating clutter in a small bedroom will make your bedroom look larger.
