Bedroom Furnishing Tips For Your Condo

Space is always a difficult puzzle to solve in condos, especially when it comes to the bedroom area. Most condominium units nowadays come with limited space, most with usable floor spaces below 50 square meters. The bedroom area often gets a poor share of this already limited floor area.

Whether your condo is near Makati or anywhere else, space is almost always a challenge in the bedroom area. Fortunately, there are bedroom furnishing tips that can help you manage the limited space in any condo for sale in the Philippines. Here are some of them.

Foldable Beds

One of the biggest space-consuming furniture in the bedroom is the bed itself. The best solution to solve this problem is to get rid of the bed, or at least tuck it away when it is not being used.

Creative but practical ideas include transforming it into a sofa, or making it magically disappear into the wall deliberately lined up with cabinets. Whichever way you do it, just reduce the horizontal space that it takes up. That should create a lot of usable space in the bedroom when you’re not sleeping.

Loft Beds or Floating Beds

If you think that folding or lifting the bed takes up too much effort, then a more permanent design might just the best option for you. Instead of setting your sights on a sofa bed, simply have your bed custom built and elevated to create a usable working space below. This is the principle behind floating beds and loft beds – take up vertical space in order to free up horizontal space.

The only drawback to this idea is that you will have to climb up and down to get on and off your bed. Is that a fair tradeoff to folding or lifting? That’s your call.

Ceiling and wall fixtures

Another clutter that usually take up space in the bedroom are those small tables that hold up your reading lamps and/or books. You can easily eliminate these unnecessary furniture by permanently fixing your would-be reading lamps to the ceiling. Obviously, you need to adjust the height so that it lowers enough to light up just your reading space and not the entire bedroom. The books, on the other hand, can be stacked neatly on hanging shelves.

However, if you want to take space-saving even further, you can put up hanging cabinets instead of just shelves. That way, you can get rid of more than just the tables cluttering the bedroom, but also the bulky cabinets that take up a lot of floor space. Moreover, by placing these hanging cabinets on top of the headboard and permanently attaching lamps underneath them, you get a good position for reading lamps as well.
