How to Arrange Bedroom Furniture
Before bringing everything inside your room, you have to ensure that the furniture is something that you really need, not only for decoration purposes.
1. Create a Blueprint
Yes, planning is very important so you will know what you exactly want and need. First of all, please make sure:
- The size of your bedroom
Well, we all know that this is important because it affects the size of furniture you choose. You don’t want to fill a small bedroom with tons of bulky furniture.
- The kind of layout that you want
Where you will put the bed, makeup stand, mirror, dresser, cupboard, closet, etc.
- The location of the windows
Some people may find it bothersome to place a bed under the windows because it might make them hard to sleep because of the sun on the day and the wind at night.
- The number of pieces of furniture to fulfill your needs
Only place furniture that you need for your stuff and get rid of the one that is only for decorations.

2. Prioritize the Function
If you love spending your time reading in a bed, choosing side tables to place lamps is a good start. Of course, you don’t have to choose the one that is too big. Side tables with drawers on the bottom are very useful and functional that you can use to put other stuff.
If you’re going to install a TV, we recommend hanging it to the wall instead of getting a TV stand. However, if you love a TV stand, choose a minimalist design especially if the bedroom is small.

3. Headboard or Footboard?
It’s always good to choose the one with a headboard than a footboard because a bed with footboards tends to create a bulky look. A bed without a footboard can let you have a simple couch or bench at the end. Again, if you’re going to add a bench, it would be great to choose the one that is functional with additional storage.
4. Big to Small
First of all, organize bigger furniture first before moving forward to another piece of furniture. Also, never buy new furniture before finishing the one that you have first. Usually, a bed is the first thing that you can decide on where to put and the layout. Next would be a dresser, closet, side tables, and other big things.
Once you’re done with the main bulky things, you can decide whether or not you really need additional pieces of furniture. One thing is that you have to make sure that you can get in and out easily with sufficient space.

The essential item for master and guest bedrooms vary but there will always be a slight difference. For guest bedrooms, you have to make sure that it has enough storage and of course, comfortable as the master bedroom.
As for storage space, instead of using a bulky dresser, you might opt floating shelves above the bed or a vertical one so there will be more empty space for other useful things.
