Tired of the same-old look in bedrooms? Maybe an angled bed placement is right for your room.
See the floorplan below and read the do's and don'ts of furniture placement in a bedroom.
- Angle furniture to give your room drama: This arrangement works well in rooms with many doors and windows. It also helps cozy up groupings; furniture that's placed around the perimeter often results in arrangements that are too far apart.
- Anchor the space with an area rug or small runner placed on the same angle to emphasize the diagonal.
- Pair side tables at each side of the bed to create balance. For a sitting area, position tables at each side of a sofa or between matching chairs.
- Create traffic options in tight quarters with diagonal furniture placement. This also helps the room appear larger and more complex.
- Play up the bed as a focal-point. Position baskets, a trunk, or a bench at the foot of the bed. If you don't have a headboard, create one with a folding screen or old shutters.
