Knowing how to arrange bedroom furniture in a rectangular room doesn’t take any special interior design skills. It just takes a few basic bedroom design ideas and the awareness of focal points.
Each home has special characteristics that make it uniquely yours. A lot of homes have rectangular master bedrooms. Some have extra floor space for king-size beds. Other small bedrooms have floor plans that require small-space configurations.
Rectangular bedrooms (and living rooms, family rooms, etc.!) give us plenty of fun options when it comes to arranging your furniture.
If you are not sure where to start when it comes to designing your bedroom and getting things arranged aesthetically, here are some bedroom layout ideas.
Take note of the size.
If you have a smaller bedroom area, the most important thing to keep in mind is to make sure you don’t overcrowd it.
Keep a simple layout with plenty of light, removing clutter. Brighter rooms that look open will help make the room feel bigger.
Maximize storage space and minimize the amount of art or photos that are hung on your wall, as this can contribute to that busy look. This allows you to put your furniture up against the wall more easily, whether it’s a chest of drawers or bedside tables on either side of the bed.
Drawing out different furniture arrangements before you start moving everything will help save time — and your muscles will thank you!
First, get the dimensions of the rectangular room, and then measure some of your largest pieces of furniture to see what your options are.
Don’t be afraid to experiment a bit; this is your space, and you can design it how you like it.
Begin with the bed.
Your bed is the most important part of the bedroom, so make sure that is where you start with your layout.
Most of the time it’s best to put it against a wall that is opposite the door, but if you only have space for it in front of a window, that will work, too.
Once you’ve found the ideal place for the bed, arrange everything else starting with the largest furniture pieces first.
Last, make sure you arrange what you have first, before going out to buy things that you think you need. When you see what you have, then you’ll know exactly what will fit, what style works best, and where it will go.
