Although you may think the focus should be on the bed, that doesn’t always have to be the case. If you are fortunate enough to have a fireplace, built in bookshelves, or even a large window, those will work nicely as well. You could even choose to make one of the walls the focal point by painting it a stronger color than the rest of the room or applying another treatment such as wallpaper. Your bed is your greatest asset in this room – choose wisely. Keep the bed size to scale in your room so as to allow clear isles to avoid tripping in the middle of the night. Freeing up space will also allow you to bring in a comfortable easy chair or bench, which when positioned correctly, can become your own private retreat within itself.
