In today’s post, I wanted to share with you the process of how I decided to place my furniture in the 2016 Bucks County Designer House bedroom. If you missed the post with all the BEFORE images, you can check that out here: http://wp.me/pEVbo-PZ
You may remember that the first thing you see upon entering the space is this wall of closet and attic doors.
Usually when designing a bedroom, I like the bed to take center stage and be the first thing you see upon entering the space. Obviously, the wall of doors means the bed absolutely cannot be placed on that focal wall. So the next logical space to place the bed is between the two windows on the left hand wall.
One of the first steps I take when determining the proper furniture placement is to create a detailed floor plan. So, after taking precise measurements of the entire space, I created a scale drawing of the room.
Next, I pondered what size bed I would use. Knowing that I wanted to design the space for a young lady, I toyed with whether using a pair of twin beds would work, or if a more grown-up Queen sized bed would be the better choice. While twin beds could have technically fit into the space, the awkward placement of the windows and radiator made it a tad close. In the end I chose to use a queen sized bed on the wall between the windows.
There is ample room at the foot of the bed for a bench or sitting area. The dresser could be placed either between the windows at the foot of the bed, or on the bathroom wall to the left of the entrance.
So, what do you think of the furniture placement in my 2016 Bucks County Designer House & Gardens bedroom? The next step will be to sketch out some pretty, inspirational drawings of the space and flesh out my ideas even further. I’m starting to think about the color scheme and, of course, that often means deciding which fabrics I’ll use. In addition, it’s time to start thinking about the window treatments, bedding, and the specific furniture pieces I’ll use. There’s still so much to do! I promise I’ll be sure to share a bit more with you soon.
