The size and placement of objects in the bedroom are key factors to consider when arranging furniture and creating a beautiful living space. Instrument’s wardrobe experts have highlighted some “common mistakes” people make that limit the bedroom’s potential. This included too much bulk and covering the socket socks.
1. Clutter around the bed
Experts said: “The bed should be the focal point of the room, so cluttering the space around it can distract attention.
“Keep the items around the bed to a minimum, including bedside tables, instead of having two, try opting for one.”
Clutter should also be kept away from the bed to ensure the room looks tidy and the bed is fit for purpose.
2. Cabinet next to the door
If you have a freestanding cabinet, experts recommend placing it away from the door if possible. According to wardrobe experts, it “makes the room feel cluttered.”

Instead, cabinets should be tucked into corners when possible. Experts say: “Consider built-in storage if you are planning to invest in your bedroom space, as it can be adapted to make the layout of the room more appealing.”
3. Cover outlets
From a practical point of view, professionals said that covering power outlets can become a nuisance as furniture will have to be constantly moved to access them.
Using extension cords can help avoid this, but it can look messy. However, some bedroom spaces do not have other options, but if this can be avoided, it is recommended to do so.
4. Place the bed against the wall
Instrument experts explained: “It can be tempting to push the bed right next to the wall to create a cozy nook, but that makes a room feel cramped. Try to keep the center bed as it is the focal point of the bedroom.

If the bedroom is a storage room or a small double bed, this may not be able to be avoided.
5. Not prioritizing view
Whether or not there is a view out the window, experts recommended keeping the window space clear of clutter and not blocking it in any way.
Blocking all views can “make the room seem smaller” and block all natural light.
Experts added: “Keep the tallest furniture and bed frames away from the window to avoid this.”

6. Make the TV the focal point
Experts noted, “Unfortunately, many TVs are unattractive and shouldn’t be the main focus of the room.
“Avoid placing the TV in front of the bed, otherwise it creates competition between the two.
If possible, try to remove the TV from the bedroom, as this will make the space more comfortable.
A spokesperson for Instrument said: “The layout of your bedroom is not only important for its appearance and functions, but is essential if you are short on space.
“We try to encourage people to make the most of their space.
“Bedrooms can often be cluttered with unnecessary and oversized items and furniture.
Just by making a few simple changes, it’s easy to unlock a space in your home that you didn’t even know you had.
“That also goes for any room in the house, not just the bedroom.”
