Some rooms can make furniture selection a bit tricky — and there’s no one-size-fits-all answer to such a dilemma. Why? There are different types of space limitations; sometimes you’re limited because of sheer square footage, while other times you’re limited because of available wall space or ceiling height. Let’s look at a few possible solutions to each of those issues.
The most obvious answer for limited square footage is doing the same thing New York City does — build up! Now, you might not need an extra bed, so a Bunk Bed wouldn’t make sense, but a Loft Bed could still be right for your child. Consider this Windsor Low Loft: In the same amount of real estate as the bed, you can fit a dresser, book shelf, and bed. Or take a look at this Mission Study Loft with two sets of drawers and a desk beneath the bed.
If your child’s room has multiple windows, closets, built-ins, or doors, arranging furniture can be a bit tricky; after all, it seems awkward to place a bed or book case in the middle of the room. Whenever real estate of any kind is limited, going up can be an effective option, as we discussed above. If that isn’t the direction you want to go, other combination pieces like this Madison Bookcase Bed can help you maximize a single section of your child’s bedroom wall by using it for multiple functions. The Madison Desk and Hutch provide another option for combining functions, this time for study and storage.
If you’re looking for something with masculine appeal, the Kenwood line includes this great Super Storage Bed as well as this Desk with Hutch. Opting for a taller Drawer Chest in place of a wide Dresser can also help you maximize the wall space that you have.
Perhaps you’d love to utilize the room’s square footage, but a typical Bunk Bed or Loft Bed seems daunting because of a slanted or particularly low ceiling. Perhaps a Low Loft like this Staircase Bed for Girls based off the Maxtrix® System would be a good fit. It includes the Maxtrix Low Loft Storage Bed with a Pull-Out Desk. Another option might be this Captain’s Bed with Pull-Out Desk. Even if you can’t go up as high as those beds, any way you can stack multiple purpose pieces of furniture atop one another, you’re winning the space war. For instance, this 5-Drawer Captain’s Bed might save you just enough space to help you avoid needing an added piece of storage furniture to an already limited space.
Whatever the limitation your child’s bedroom provides, we’re confident that here at The Bedroom Source, we can help you find furniture that will help you maximize the space you do have.
