Unless you’ve designed your dream home in accordance with your own unique requirements, there’s a possibility you’ll have to deal with the challenges of choosing furniture for a small bedroom at some point. The most obvious point is to find the important parts of bedroom furniture. Is the space built in storage, or are you going to need a standing wardrobe or drawers? Need a chair to sit on, or is it just going to be used to pile up clothes? What is the width of your bed? Are you just sleeping in your bedroom, or are you studying or watching TV in there?
Beds are the key component of any bedroom, of course, and your choice of furniture depends on who is going to sleep in the bedroom. Bunks are a great way to maximize floor space if children share a room. Visually bunks can be pretty dominant and can make a room look closed in and smaller, so if you use less of the second bed, a trundle bed is a great solution to save space. Cabin beds are very popular with children’s bedrooms at the moment, providing plenty of storage and play space. A sofa bed can provide extra storage, which is available in the full range of sizes. A smaller bedroom fits best in terms of style and minimalist furniture. You may love a sleigh bed’s shapely elegance, But it is impossible for a small bedroom to sacrifice the space required for elaborate bed ends.
The next “key” is the bedside table in terms of bedroom furniture. A bedside table’s key functions are keeping a lamp, a place to store essential items that may be required at night’s reach, and perhaps an alarm clock. A well-placed shelf can perform these tasks, saving precious floor space. You may find that if you can’t fit into a bigger tallboy or dresser, a cabinet with 2 or 3 drawers can give you the extra storage for your smaller items.
While designing furniture for a small bedroom, the idea of “double duty” is invaluable. Consider a small desk that can double as a workstation and dressing table, or a cabinet that can be a TV cabinet as well.
When it’s clutter-free, a small bedroom works best, so storage furniture is critical. For hanging mesh shelves for boots, wardrobes can be maximized. Vacuum clothes can be packed and stored in compact spaces outside of the season. Look for tall, slim, rather than wide, cupboards and storage units to free up floor space.
A good maxim for any room is to have only things that you find useful or beautiful, not just the small bedroom. Even the smallest space can be transformed into a cozy and welcoming bedroom, offering sanctuary and rest by considering your needs, wants and non-negotiables.
