A bedroom such as this, which has unusual features, poses more of a problem. Beds take up tons of floor space and require clearance for ease of movement, which limits options for placement.
Normally, the head of the bed would be placed against a wall but if the room has unusual features that cut into the available wall space you might find the challenge daunting.
In a bedroom such as this, consider placing the bed in the centre of the room and at an angle if possible. Create drama with a canopy or netting draped from the ceiling. Consider lowering the bed if possible by placing the mattress and box spring directly on the floor (or on slim wooden slats to keep the air flowing beneath). Lowering the bed means it will take up less visual space. If low windows were an obstacle before, they may not be any longer as you’ll have removed the headboard so the bed may fit against a wall now where it wouldn’t before.
An attic bedroom with slanted ceilings poses similar dilemmas. You may have to take the large mirror off of your dresser so the base will fit against the short wall under a slanted ceiling. We had to do this in our home but it wasn’t a huge deal. We simply stored the mirrors away and everything fit just fine. Again, this was a small compromise to keep the furniture that we love.
If you’re dealing with a highboy dresser or tall wardrobe, consider placing them in the hallway near the bedroom or in another room altogether. You may have to remove a tall headboard so the bed will fit against a short wall as well. Store it away for future use or modify it if you can to fit your unique situation. Consider removing the legs from a wicker or wooden headboard so it will fit. Give it a fresh coat of paint to give it new life. If the headboard is part of the bed support you’ll have to buy a bed rail to solve your dilemma. In this case you can simply place the modified headboard between the bed and the wall even if it’s not attached to the actual bed support.
Unusual spaces have great potential. You just have to work with the quirks and compromise a little. Just like people, it takes a few unique characters to make life interesting. Cherish your home whether atypical or not.
Designers made a focal point of the unusual wall by placing a red chair in front of it along with colourful artwork and tall reeds.
