Bedroom Decorating: Which Size Bed Should You Choose?

in Decorating on by

Bedroom decorating is unique in that it is not the first thing that guests see when they walk into your apartment; yet it is still something that can greatly enhance or demolish the decorum in your apartment. Whether your apartment is large or small, you should always consider things like your floor space and floor layout before choosing a bed size.

Floor Space

The first thing you should consider when choosing a bed size is how much floor space you have available in your bedroom. The size of bed that you choose can either be a nice fit in your bedroom, or it can be an eyesore. You definitely don’t want to overcrowd an already small room, and you don’t want to put a small bed in a large room and end up making the room look empty. Both of these looks can greatly reduce the quality of your bedroom.

So, the first thing that you should do is get an exact measurement of your bedroom. Then you will want to figure out exactly how much space you have on each wall depending upon what other items of furniture that you have in your bedroom.

After you have done that, you can begin measuring out the exact footage sizes of a twin, full, queen and king size bed. Doing this will give you a better idea of exactly how much space you have available in your bedroom, and exactly how much space will be used by the different sizes of beds.

Bedroom Layout

The next thing that you will want to consider is the layout of the bedroom. Once you have figured out how many feet of space you have available on each wall, you should then consider how the layout affects the space that you have.

If you have a typical 10 foot by 10 foot square bedroom, you may not face as many issues when deciding where to place your bed. If, on the other hand, you have a rectangular or circular bedroom, finding the perfect location for your bed and having the space to accommodate it might be a little trickier.

While rectangular and circular shaped bedrooms are structurally appealing, you can run into problems when trying to position your furniture correctly without losing any space. The best thing to do in this case is to envision how you want the furniture in your bedroom placed. This will give you a better idea of how you want your bedroom to look and, in essence, dictating what size bed will give you the look you want.

Bed Size Options

Now that you have considered the size of your bedroom, the layout of your bedroom and how much remaining space that you have, you can begin to consider which bed size would best enhance the decorum of your bedroom: twin, full, queen or king.

While it may be natural to want a king size bed because of the room and relaxation that it affords, it is important to remember that if your bedroom cannot accommodate it, it will only leave your bedroom lacking and you will find that you are extremely restricted on walking space.
