A Howell, New Jersey resident came to Home Living Furniture with a dilemma that she was determined to overcome (you might be able to relate to it).
She had always wanted a king size bed, mentioning that she is finally settled in her career and was living on her own. She felt it was about time she treated herself, plus, her boyfriend would be moving in and there was not enough space for the both of them in her twin bed. There was just one little problem; the size of her bedroom is small! Determined to make a king bed work, she needed our help finding the right, complete bedroom set. Her biggest concern was storage and she knew by adding a bed of this size in her small space, she would not have much room for anything else.
The first thing the team at Home Living Furniture Howell needed to do was find her bedroom furniture that optimizes storage. A bed frame with built-in storage would be more bulky but would give her an additional place to put her items. When it came to a dresser, due to the limitations of her space, we recommended purchasing a tall dresser with one nightstand. Since two nightstands would be ideal seeing that two people would be using the bed, there would be little legroom on each side. The use of one nightstand would flow with the bed placed in a corner. For even more storage, we suggested she get creative:
One more little trick we suggested was to add a mirror on a wall. Mirrors reflect light, which in return which could make any room look bigger.
We can’t make the impossible happen, but if your bedroom is at least around 10 ft. by 10 ft., it’s likely you could make your dreams of having a king size bed come true. (Most of the king size beds we sell out of our Howell, Middletown/Red Bank, and Lawrenceville showrooms measure around 6.6 ft. by 6.9 ft.). Like with the customer from above, optimizing storage is key. To recap:
- Opt for beds that have built-in storage
- Think vertical. Select tall dressers
- Get creative!
