How to Arrange Furniture in a Large Bedroom


One would think that decorating a large bedroom would be easy, but sometimes, it is more difficult as decorating a small room. Either large rooms end up with too much furniture just because they will hold it, or large ooms end up looking empty and cold. Finding the correct furniture placement will help your large bedroom look more pulled together. Here are my tips on how to arrange furniture in a large bedroom.

  • Get rid of small furniture pieces. Large rooms will look crowded if you fill it with lots of small furniture pieces. A side table or favorite item is fine, but the majority of furnishings in a large bedroom should also be large.

  • You should place your furniture in a way that balances the room. Putting your bed at one end will give it a bowling alley affect, therefore, I recommend placing the bed on the longest wall in the room. If possible, place the bed between two windows or a wall with no windows at all.

  • Place a large armoire across from the foot of the bed. If you would like a TV in the room, it would be a good place for one.

  • Pull items away from the wall. For example, if placing your bed on one wall with the TV armoire on the other wall puts the television too far away to see, consider placing it at a comfortable distance and working around it. In this case, you can see the TV is placed closer to the bed and a floor screen is used to conceal the back of the cabinet. You can also place to same-sized items back to back.

  • Consider buying a bed with a dresser or chest built into the back of the headboard. This will allow you to pull the bed away from the wall and break up the space.

  • Place your dressers and a bench to make a dressing area. For balance, I prefer two identical chest dressers and a dressing table instead of a tall dresser and a short dresser.

  • Place occasional furniture for lounging. This can be two comfortable chairs and a small table or a chaise lounge or two.

Tips & Warnings

  • Draw a sketch of your room and draw a few different options to help you decide on placement.
