Though many people tend to focus on areas like the living room and dining room when it comes to home décor. Personal spaces like the bedroom are just as important. The purpose of home décor is to establish a welcoming, cozy feeling throughout your home. That feeling is just as important in the bedroom as it is anywhere else. Of course, designing a master bedroom layout comes with some unique challenges. To help you out, we’ve put together a few ideas that make the most of your bedroom space.

Try a Loft Bed

If you’re currently living alone, loft beds are an excellent room layout option. For those who don’t know, a loft bed is built similarly to a bunk bed, but it has a small alcove instead of a bottom bunk. Usually, this alcove includes something like a built-in desk, bookshelf, or other workspace. Though they don’t work as well for couples sharing a bed. A loft bed is worth considering for students and at-home office workers. That alcove makes for a great work and/or hobby space. It helps save floor space for other décor pieces as well.

Compact Bedroom Décor

When you create a room layout, you want it to feel as open as possible, especially when it comes to bedrooms. Laying down in your bedroom supposed to be relaxing. Naturally, it feels much less relaxing if you’re surrounded by bulky décor and furniture. If your bedroom layout is overcrowded, it certainly won’t feel relaxing, and may even begin to feel claustrophobic. Though using bedroom décor is still important, we recommend sticking to more compact décor pieces that don’t occupy too much floor space.

Clean Up Clutter

Aside from bulky décor, clutter is one of the biggest culprits for overcrowded bedrooms. It’s deceptively easy to let clutter build up, and by the time you notice it, it usually snowballed into a very time-consuming, labor-intensive issue to fix. Fortunately, you can create your room design layout in several ways that make it a bit easier to manage your clutter.

Hang Some Shelves

The first way to reduce clutter is to hang some shelves along your walls. As they’re wall-mounted, they don’t take up any floor space, and you can use them to organize your clutter. Rather than having a bunch of stray books, curios, and other items strewn all over your desk or nightstand. You can have several shelves, one devoted to each type of item. Rather than clutter, your stray items can now use as a form of décor in and of themselves. This effectively ends your clutter problem while also making your bedroom more visually appealing. Making wall-mounted shelves one of our favorite bedroom interior design elements.

Storage Under the Bed

Of course, the clutter you’re trying to get rid of isn’t always visually appealing, and may not make a decoration. If that’s the case, it’s better to just hide it from view entirely. If you want to hide certain pieces of clutter, we recommend investing in wide, shallow storage containers. As long as you carefully plan what you’re packing in, these containers can fit a huge amount of clutter. Because they’re shallow rather than tall, they can easily slide under the bed when you done filling them. This prevents the clutter from taking up floor space and hides it in a place where it won’t be an eyesore, all while ensuring it’s easily accessible when you need it.

Functional Headboards

While table lamps seen as a bedroom décor staple, there are plenty of great bedroom layouts without them. For example, many layouts replace lamps with functional headboards. While headboards often used as a décor piece, they have a huge amount of untapped potential. Simply attaching reading lights to a headboard eliminates the need for table lamps while keeping the bedroom illuminated. Of course, there are plenty of other types of functional headboards to choose from like bookshelves and storage cabinets, so just pick out whatever works best for you.

Take Advantage of Natural Lighting

There are all too many cases of perfectly sized bedroom layouts that still end up feeling cramped because the designer fails to use natural lighting. Generally speaking, the more light there is in a room, the bigger and more open it feels. To take advantage of this, you should design your bedroom around the natural light provided by windows. Give the windows a wide berth to allow that light to reach every corner of the room. If that’s still not enough, consider adding some skylights. With all that done, you should have a perfectly spacious and well-lit bedroom to relax in.
