Key Measurements to Help You Design Your Dream Bedroom

We spend more time in bedrooms than in any other room in the house. Even though we are sleeping most of that time, we end and begin our days there. An organized and well-considered space can improve your mood when you need to get to sleep, and get your day off to a good start when you wake.

Planning bedrooms starts with learning standard bed sizes, which one you prefer and which one will work in your plan. Other bedroom furniture comes in all kinds of sizes. Once you determine your room and bed dimensions, you can make good decisions about dressers, chests, benches, chairs, nightstands and so on.
Sitting areas. If you want a sitting area in your bedroom, you will need space for tables as well as chairs and love seats, plus the circulation area to make it work. Allow an area of at least 8 by 8 feet in addition to your requirements for the beds, dressers and chests. You more likely will need an area that is 10 by 10 feet. A rectangular room that’s 21 feet long and 14 feet wide will accommodate a bedroom with a king-size bed and a sitting area.
