There is no definitive answer to this question, as the best bed placement for a bedroom depends on the individual’s needs and preferences. However, almost everyone would agree that the best place for a bed is against a wall, with space on either side for nightstands. This arrangement allows for easy access to the bed and helps to create a sense of privacy.
But sometimes, this placement is impossible due to the size of the room, window placement, or even the size or type of bed you choose or have. Therefore I am going to try and give you a few things to think about before you officially decide on the best bed placement for your bedroom.
Which Wall to Place a Bed On?
Most would agree that a bed should be placed against a wall, but which wall? It’s best to place the bed on the opposite wall of the door, or the adjacent wall that is furthest from the door. This will create the best visual impact as someone enters the room. It will provide the best view of the bed and nightstands which should be the focal point of the bedroom.
Size and Type of Bed
There are a variety of different types and sizes of beds available on the market. The size and type of bed you choose will depend on the amount of space you have in your bedroom, which will also affect your bed placement. A king bed takes up a lot of space, while a bunk bed can be a great option if you have limited space and need two beds in a kids’ room, for example.
If you have little space, a daybed can be a great choice because it allows for more room than a traditional bed. Trundle beds need extra room to be able to pull out the second bed, so keep that in mind when making your decision. There are several options out there to make the perfect bed placement work for every bedroom.
Bed Between Two Windows
This is my favorite placement for a bed in a master bedroom. The placement of a bed between two windows creates a feeling of balance and symmetry, but there are pros and cons. On the one hand, it can be great to have natural light flooding into the bedroom in the morning. On the other hand, having a bed placed in this spot can make the room feel smaller and more cramped.
You also want to make sure there is enough space between the windows to accommodate your bed size. If the bed is too large it will overlap the windows, which is not a good look. You also don’t want there to be too much space between the windows. This would place the nightstands too far away from the bed since it looks best when the nightstands are centered with each window.
When it comes to bunk beds, there is no one-size-fits-all answer as to the best place for them in a bedroom. Some people may prefer to have them placed in the center of one wall, while others may prefer them in one of the corners of the bedroom. Ultimately, it depends on your personal preferences and how the bunkbed is configured.
Another option for bunk beds is building a custom one. We have done this twice and both turned out great. It creates a completely integrated look and it’s a project that you can have a lot of fun with especially if the bunk beds are for young children.
