In the modern world, it can be difficult to balance out comfort, space, and style, especially in the bedroom. Apartment living makes this especially difficult – with space at a premium, bedroom furniture can seem far too large for any room. But sleek, modern bedroom furniture often offers many options to make things more compact without sacrificing a bit of style or comfort in the process.
The first step for setting up any room is, of course, to decide on a style. For an apartment bedroom, a modern or contemporary style is always a good option – the stylishly sparse lines of modern furniture work to make a smaller room look big. With that in mind, here are some options to help modern furniture make your room seem still larger than it really is:
1. Beds with storage shelves underneath can save space that would be taken up by dressers or nightstands. Store bedding, clothing, nighttime reading material, or anything else you want, without taking up any more space. In addition, built-in drawers prevent the visual clutter of having things underneath a normal bed.
2. Unusually shaped beds, such as round beds, provide the same amount of comfort and a unique touch while also fitting into interestingly shaped spaces. Need a bed that will fit in a tight corner? A round bed might be the best choice, and it’s sure to draw pleasant attention. In addition, some round beds come with shelving and storage built to fit around the unique curves of the bed, providing still more room.
3. Smaller, sleeker beds may not be good for two, but for one they can visually broaden the space and provide a comfortable night’s sleep. Many smaller modern beds are built with the comfort of one person in mind, and they share the sparse, stylish design of their larger cousins.
4. Some modern beds have still more extra features built in to save space, such as built-in lighting, built-in audio systems, and other features to make your life as convenient and clutter-free as possible.
Modern and contemporary furniture can visibly open up any small space, and nowhere is that more true than in the bedroom. Most modern and contemporary beds blend style and function, offering extra storage, extra space, and extra room while also giving the room a clean, elegant feeling. If you’re tight on space but don’t want to sacrifice any style or comfort, a modern look might be the best way to go.
