When we moved into this home we had a queen bed, and really wanted a king. A couple of years ago we went ahead and made the purchase choosing better nights sleep over the best space fit for our small bedroom in our little home.
If you haven’t already heard, we are a very tall couple which = lots of legs, and not having enough space in your marital bed isn’t conducive to well …marriage.

A Small Bedroom With A Big Bed
Here’s what we ended up doing to make the best use of the space, so that we could have our bigger bed, and limit the kicking.
Creating a feature wall of curtains to cover the lopsided window. With the bed pushed up against the wall the window placement felt really funny, so working with our limited budget at the time we decided to cover the whole wall with curtains and give an elusion another window existed.
Keeping the bed higher off the ground for storage and visual space.
Keeping the bedding light and bright, & simple makes the room feel a bit bigger, and the bed easier to make.
The accent lumbars are actually new pillows I made for the living room but wanted to see what a full leather lumbar is going to look like in the space before making that for the bedroom. I need to get you guys an update of the living room because it has been coming along nicely!
We could have had two small entrances on either side of the bed (which we tried and banged up our legs daily) or one larger space by pushing the bed against the wall…its not ideal, but it gave us the best function for our needs so we went ahead and did it.
Limiting the other furniture in the room to 1 tall dresser and a small side table.
Made sure the tv wasn’t hung in the narrow walk path at the end of the bed and instead swings out from behind the curtain wall. Visually, this hides the tv when its not in use and really helps keep things simple and streamlined, and make a walk path as large as possible.
No space or budget is ever “perfect” so you do what you have to and make it work. Ideally we wouldn’t be so tall and a queen would work just fine, alas it does not #tallproblems so we made the best of it.
What do you guys do to make large furniture work in a small space?
