    could you turn it so it is in the corner of that well? you will have an open gap behind it but more space in the room

      I have done this corner placement successfully - and also remove the foot board. Removing the foot board gives you the illusion of much more room!

    Hello there, Maybe ditch the bed base for use another day when you have a bigger bedroom and go for a divan base with drawers for storage or a smaller frame with straight headboard.

  • I think the placement looks good where it is... another idea is a bed that could fold up, to free up floor space during the day.

    I would pull it over next to the window. Use the space in the corner next to the headboard to put a small unit to store some of your things, and maybe put a lamp on it, if possible.

    I would put it in the corner and make it so that it slants out. This gives you the feeling of more room. I think it will look lovely. I used to do this when we lived in a smaller place.

    Great ideas., I’d add a corner shelf unit for long term storage in the corner behind the bed, out of sight. Maybe take the chair out as it is too big for the space

    Pull the bed to the edge of the window and put the chair in the corner on the opposite side of the bed. Or geet rid of the chair and replace with a table and lamp

    Hard to tell from the photo if there is space to walk around the end of the bed. If there is space to do so, I would pull the bed away from the wall enough to slide a tall but narrow and relatively shallow shelf unit into the corner. I'd attach a wall-mount reading lamp to the shelf unit and use that shelf unit for the stuff I might normally put in a nightstand.

    I would put the chair on an angle toward the opposite side of the window from where it is now so it faces more into the room instead of facing the doorway, but so it also doesn't block the radiator or the light from the window. (That's if there's room to the side of whatever that tall piece of furniture in the left side of the photo is.) A tray table or something with an open leg structure between the turned chair and the bed would serve as both a side table and a nightstand without blocking the radiator.
