Small bedrooms with big furniture can feel either cozy or cramped. Arranging bedroom furniture is much easier if you can visualize patterns and placement in your mind before you physically move a piece of furniture. Still, you may have more or less space than you anticipate, and the perfect spot for the bed won't be at all perfect. Cut down trial-and-error time by keeping some basic things in mind: Largest pieces must go in first; consider safe and practical placement; and make use of a bedroom's vertical space whenever possible.

The perfect bedroom starts with furniture. Choosing the right furnishings for your room depends on the space in which you are designing. If you have a large bedroom, there may be room for a sitting area with an accent chair and lamp for relaxation and reading. Small spaces need to do double duty by providing a lot of storage in a small footprint. Storage beds, chests of drawers, armoires and under-bed storage provide ample places to store clothing and bedding.
What are the different bedroom styles?
Shabby Chic style has a way of updating old things and aging new ones. Antique and vintage-style items take up plenty of space in shabby chic, but they’re often repainted white or other unexpected colors. Weathered or distressed furniture is very popular in shabby chic spaces, which are usually bright and airy with soft colors, neutrals, and plenty of white.
Contemporary style is very geometric. A contemporary bedroom will have a low bed in a simple, unadorned style. Other furniture will also be mostly horizontal and fairly low to the ground, though there may be a taller vertical piece for contrast. Black, white, and gray are very common colors in contemporary design schemes, often combined with splashes of bolder color. This design style uses mostly solid colors and light, metallic accents.
Modern is also a geometric style, but it’s even more minimalist than contemporary. Unlike most contemporary rooms, modern rooms also tend to include surprising, bold, asymmetrical elements. Neutral colors are dominant in this style, and monochromatic designs are common.
Art Deco is a classy vintage style based on the 1920s and ‘30s. Though there are plenty of geometric shapes in art deco, they’re mostly used as patterns (not the shapes of the furniture). Textiles with angular designs show up often, as do strong curves. Art deco is also known for its use of wood and wood inlay, chrome, glass, and mirrors. An art deco bedroom would usually have a fairly neutral, monochromatic color scheme.
Traditional style is usually based on English and French styles from the 18th and 19th centuries. It often includes elements like gilt mirrors, dark wood, lush fabrics and intricate patterns. If you love classic wooden four-poster beds and Oriental rugs, traditional just might be your style.
Eclectic style means anything and everything goes. Eclectic designs pull in elements from other styles, using variety to create a space that still feels cohesive. The color palette is entirely up to personal taste. Eclectic is definitely not a minimalist style. Eclectics love contrast, putting together mismatched furniture and all kinds of different colors, patterns, and textures.
