Balance the scale
For medium to compact bedrooms, you can play with scale and invest in pieces that allow the layout to be fully utilised and clutter-free. For this, you need to understand the balance lines, which basically intersect or divide your spaces horizontally or vertically. This divides the room into four quadrants. Ideally, one should avoid keeping multiple heavy pieces in each one to provide balance lines with a sense of flow and continuity.
Next comes the focal point, which might be a window or fireplace around which the furniture is arranged. For balance and scale, the second-biggest piece of furniture should be placed opposite the bed. For example, this could be your wardrobe or a chest of drawers. They bring symmetry to the design and fill the space along the wall.
Some other hand tips for bedroom furniture are:
- Don’t push the bed to one side of the wall as accessibility becomes tough.
- Bring in space-saving storage solutions like wooden bed designs with under-storage.
- Make use of vertical space to prevent the bedroom from getting cramped. We recommend wall decor like murals and paintings.
Remember that good design takes a while. Do your research and if needed, take a little extra time to make sure you have a more efficient and functional plan in the end.
