It can be challenging to figure out the perfect way to arrange your furniture if you have a small bedroom. When approaching this task, start with your bed as it’s the biggest piece of furniture. Identify which wall your headboard can be comfortably placed against, then build the rest of the layout around your bed. Focus on maximizing the functionality of your floorplan by using vertical space and practical storage solutions. Use wall-mounted mirrors to enlarge your space and tall curtains to add height. Depending on whether you want your room to be a bright, airy space or a cozy cocoon, choose either a light or dark color palette for your decor.
