    Put the TV in another room. They cause sleep problems when in bedrooms!

    If bed can be moved to the other wall, I would do that. TV in front of window or the wall bed is now on.

    Can the tv be mounted to a wall? Tv mounts can be purchased for under $20 and the furniture rearranged.

    Look at your room , imaging it was empty . Pick a wall for the tv and a wall for the bed . If possible , if you live in an area that gets cold , try to keep the bed on an inside wall . Then look at all the other things that NEED to be in the room. I lived in an apartment for my whole married life , over 40 years , we finally bought our first home in a retirement community . The new home is only slightly larger than our apartment , but we have more storage , a single garage and an attic . I couldn't take the cramped conditions in our apartment , bikes blocking closets , chests blocking closets...too much stuff !!!! I have been weeding out stuff !!! It feels so good !!! So when I say only put things that you need in your room, it will look and feel better . This being said , the benefits of long term apartment living is you learn a lot of creative storage solutions .

    So if you have a lot of stuff you need to keep in your bedroom , try using trunks as night tables( store stuff in there ) right now I am trying to see if I can do without a dresser, by re doing my small step in closet . ( I wouldn't even call it a walk in ! ) by putting shelves all the way up one wall , adding an extra rod on another side , adding a second shelf above the top shelf , hanging shoe rack and baskets. Also consider put the tv on top of a dresser.. Good luck !

    Move that bookcase to where the t.v. is and then caddy the t.v. in a corner.

    A TV mount that has a radial arm. Store it vertically and then for viewing adjust it horizontally but might be a pricey fix.

    Can't see much of the bedroom, but it looks like a lot more is blocking the closet door. You need to what Pamila suggested and imagine the room empty and rearrange so the closet isn't blocked by so much heavy furniture. You must have somewhere else you can put the furniture blocking the door. Hang the TV instead of putting it on furniture.

    Move the dresser to the very end of the bed with the drawers facing out away from bed. Put your tv on the dresser facing the bed.

      Actually that is a tv stand what the picture doesn’t show is that next to the tv is a dresser with a hutch attached

    Cut out space between wall studs and install shelving, or purchase a very tall storage cabinet in which to place all the extras in this room.

    Remove the t.v.-the room appears far too cluttered to provide safe egress in event of emergency.

    Hello, you can wall mount the tv, it's out of the way and still usable.

    Remove the tv. Putting the tv in another room would be a easy way to solve the problem not only does television in the bedroom keep us up later at night, but there are also studies that indicate watching television before bed actually disrupts sleep cycles.
