    It sounds to me like it is a lot. How does it fit? Could the dresser or highboy be used as the TV stand or could the TV be mounted on the wall?

    Oh, I thought of something else. If the TV is not big you might be able to find one of those pole TV stands that run from floor to ceiling. I used to have one many years ago. We put it at the end of the bed and it took up very little room. In our next house we put it in the corner and that worked well too.

    Not necessarily, I have one in my small room. Without room dimensions it hard to say, Try it and find out. You can move it around to its best advantage. What size bed are you using. I would think a twin would work best as to not crowd the room.

    It depends on the size of the room. If the items are actually in the room now and you feel that, visually, the room looks crowded, then it most likely is.

    My ex neighbors had a small bedroom with no room for the TV so they mounted it on the wall - on an extendable "arm-like" holder. They could extend the arm out when wanting to view TV or close up the arm when done and the TV was flat against the wall. You sometimes see that done in motels and is definitely a personal choice - you either like the idea or hate it!

    If you can live with it, it is not "too much" unless you are being photographed for Architectural Digest.

    If you know measurments of both pieces you can use masking tape and boxes as mock up for them so you can see how much room take up before you commit to it.

    I have a small bedroom. I have a queen sized bed, full dresser, chest of drawers, jewelry armoire, and cedar chest. There isn't but enough room to open the drawers on my dresser, but still have walking room around my bed. I mounted the TV on the wall and use my dresser to hold the cable box and DVD player. My few favorite movies are next to the cable box or under the jewelry armoire. I went to this small bedroom from a turn of the century house where my room was big enough to hold my queen bed, dresser, chest of drawers, large computer desk, two bedside tables, three book cases, my cedar chest and jewelry armoire and an antique settee. It also had a largish walk in closet. I still had plenty of room with all that in it.

      It is a squeeze, but it works for me. I would rather have everything in my room that I need, rather than have to go to another room to get to clothes, etc. I would suggest leaving out the entertainment center and place the TV on the wall above the dresser. You can keep everything you need for it on or in the dresser. I bought the off white plastic tubes to hide the cords that matched the wall color. They were easy to put up and hide the wires so that they were not noticeable. Another suggestion would to be get under the bed storage where you can put out of season clothes in the boxes or in the bags you vacuum out the air. It is amazing what you can put in them an the come out great when you need them. You could fit a bunch of them under the bed al long as you can fit them under the frame, or even put them on a high shelf somewhere.
