If you are tired of looking at the same four walls, moving your furniture to a new layout is a great way to de-stress and feel refreshed, without having to go to the trouble or expense of redecorating.
Your bedroom is a place to relax and wind down after a long day, so to help you feel calm and comfortable and get a good nights sleep you want to be happy with your surroundings. Start by planning where you would like things to go, think about the space that you have and where your largest furniture would fit best, such as your bed.
For a small/medium room, it's best to place the head of your bed against a wall, ideally opposite the doorway ensuring that you can easily walk around it.
For a large room, try placing your bed in a corner for a cosier atmosphere. It is believed that for a more relaxed feel you should place your bed so that the foot is closer to the doorway than the bedhead. Give it a try and see how you feel, after all its your room and you need to be comfortable and happy with how it looks.
If you are unsure of how things will fit, you could do a sketch of the room to see how things would fit together.
What are the positives?
- You can give everything a thorough clean, as we all know it’s not easy to regularly clean under large furniture
- A new layout is the perfect opportunity to organise and de-clutter, which will help you feel revitalised, wake up in your new room feeling refreshed and ready for the day ahead
- You will extend the life of your flooring - heavy furniture often dents carpets and floor coverings, by changing things around you will help balance out the pressure on your carpet
- Moving large furniture away from windows can improve the lighting in your room
