The bed is the key piece of furniture in any bedroom, and it naturally becomes the focal point. Bedroom furniture is traditionally arranged according to a few general rules. For the most part based on common sense, here are some general guidelines for you to follow:
Make the bedroom look larger by eliminating clutter.
Use only necessary furniture. If you can, push a chest of drawers into a walk-in closet to free up floor space.
Keep the bed visually low. Use a headboard, but don't use a footboard, and opt for something other than a four-poster bed, all of which tend to take up space visually, making the room seem smaller.
Keep all your furniture — like the rest of your color scheme — light. Light colored furniture, walls, floors, window treatments, and bedding make a room seem bigger.
Regardless of the size of your master bedroom, the following tips can help you to make it as comfortable as possible:
Add bedside tables that are as big as space will allow. If you read or watch TV in bed, you'll find these tables helpful.
You can buy restaurant café tables for very little money and drape them with quilts.
Try to make room for at least one comfortable chair. Chairs are great for company on a sick day, for daytime resting, or for reading.
Consider carpeting all bedroom floors to reduce noise in the room.
Add a lady's desk — a small, delicately proportioned furnishing for writing letters and so forth — if you have room.
