Deciding Between Bedroom Furniture Size and Floor Space
November 9, 2012 § 1 Comment
Arranging furniture and belongings in a small bedroom often presents a challenging issue: do you sacrifice a large, comfortable bed in order to fit other items into the area or do you indulge in a more substantial sleeping space and forego floor space and other accessories in the room? Fortunately, there are a variety of simple solutions to this common problem, all of which combine comfort, convenience and style in even the smallest bedrooms.
Take a tip from the home design experts at Better Homes and Gardens and choose bedroom furniture that promotes an illusion of more space throughout the room. Cardi’s furniture stores in Massachusetts and Rhode Island carry sleek, streamlined bedroom pieces and collections that are designed to afford both comfort and convenience without sacrificing size and function.
If you are concerned about not having enough space to store items you use every day, check out a tall, slim cabinet or shelving unit that offers open accessibility without taking up much room. Utilizing your wall space for storage purposes is the single easiest solution to a crowded, cluttered bedroom. Organize books, framed photos, knick knacks and other small items within the ample space provided by a tall bookshelf unit. The height of the bookshelf draws the eyes upward, giving the appearance of a higher ceiling and a more spacious room in general.
Make your small bedroom look larger and more inviting by making your bed the primary focal point of the space. Cardi’s mattress stores in MA and RI offers a large selection of high quality, comfortable mattresses from all of the top manufacturers in the industry. Choose from twin, full, queen and king mattresses at all levels of firmness for a bedroom custom tailored to your needs and preferences. After you have chosen your mattress, browse the bedroom sets and furniture collections available as well to put the finishing touches on your room.
Another way to bring some much needed space into your bedroom is featuring furniture (such as bookshelves and night stands) in light stains or paint colors. Choose a dresser with a tall mirror to instantly add depth and space to even the smallest bedrooms in your home.
