8 Bedroom Ideas For Setting Up Your Room

1. Shape & Size

The first step is to take note of the shape and size of the room. Some bedrooms only have space for a bed and a night table, while others have room for a desk, bookcase and more.

2. Bedroom Purpose

The next thing to consider is what the bedroom will be used for. Make a list of these activities, so that you can properly divide the room into sections. For example - sleeping, doing homework, reading books, watching tv, doing hair and makeup.

3. Establish Bed Location

The first and most important section to establish is for sleeping, so the first piece of furniture that needs to be placed is the bed. It is the largest item and the initial purpose for this room. Figure out where you want your bed to be. Consider the space, the flow of traffic, being able to see the door when lying in it, where windows are and so on.

4. The Next Priority

The next section to establish is what you consider to be the next priority. Let's say that doing homework is the next most important activity, so the next piece of furniture you need to place is the desk and perhaps a bookcase.

5. Work Your Way Around

Continue in this fashion establishing sections of your room by placing the appropriate furniture in order of priority. If necessary, save space by using multipurpose furniture. For example, utilize a desk that can be used for both doing your homework and can also hold your television. This saves the space a media stand would take up.

As you can see by the way it was set up, my bedroom activities are sleeping, watching tv, and getting dressed. You'll also notice that I used one of our dressers to hold the television as opposed to introducing another piece of furniture like a media stand into this space.

6. Populate It

Once your room is set up in sections and with the appropriate furniture, populate it with your material possessions accordingly. For example, put your books on the bookcase, your office supplies in the desk, your hair accessories in the vanity and so on. This establishes homes for your bedroom items by storing them where they get used.

7. Declutter

Be sure to get rid of things you no longer need for optimum bedroom organization. Here's how to organize your room with regards to clearing the clutter and 3 ridiculously simple steps to keeping your room tidy.
