Top tips to getting a better bedroom – South London News

Designing a bedroom can be a difficult task, and if things are in the wrong place it can detract from the aesthetic of a room. Sizing and placement are essential factors to consider when arranging furniture and creating a beautiful living space. Here are Instrument’s biggest bedroom layout mistakes.

Cluttering around the bed
The bed should be the focal point of the room, so cluttering the space around it can draw the focus away.

Keep items minimal around the bed, including bedside tables.

Wardrobe next to the door
If you have a freestanding wardrobe, placing it next to the door can make the room feel crowded.

Wardrobes should be tucked into corners.

Consider built-in storage, as this can be tailored to help make the room layout more appealing.

Covering plug sockets
Covering plug sockets can become a nuisance because you have to move furniture to get to them.

Extension leads can help but can look untidy.

Placing the bed next to the wall
This makes a room feel cramped.

Try to keep the bed central as it is the focal point of the bedroom.

Not prioritising the view
Blocking the space around the window can make the bedroom appear smaller and cut natural light coming in.

Keep taller furniture and bedframes away from the window.

Making the TV the focal point
TVs aren’t aesthetically pleasing and shouldn’t be made the focus of the room.

Avoid placing the TV in front of the bed.

Try removing the TV from the bedroom, as it will make the space feel cosier.

Floor lamps in open space
Although floor lamps are best placed in larger living areas, they can still have their place in the bedroom.

Place the bases of the floor lamp behind pieces of furniture like chairs or cabinets, this way the light is still beneficial but there is more floor area.

A spokeswoman for Instrument said: “The layout of your bedroom is not only important for the way it looks and functions, but it is essential if you’re tight on space.

We’re trying to encourage people to make the most out of their space.

“Bedrooms can often become crowded with unnecessary and oversized furniture.

By making a few changes, it is easy to unlock space in your home.
