Creative With Corner Beds – How To Make The Most Of Your Floor Space

Every room has dead spaces and these are usually the corners. But for every such space and for every room there are lots of ways in which you can creatively make better use of your floor space. Corner beds are an excellent idea and there’s more than one way in which you can style them.

Dual headboards.

A rectangular bed can fit perfectly in the corner of a bedroom. And, to really make it look great, you can extend the headboard. You get more comfort and this way the bed looks like it truly belongs there in the corner.

Combining two or more single beds.

Another great way in which you can use the corner of a bedroom is with two single beds placed head to head. Similarly, you can use the same idea when you deal with bunk beds. A great setting for shared bedrooms. The space between the beds can be turned into a common storage unit or display area.

Angle the bed in.

Don’t worry about the space in between the bed and the walls. It won’t become a dead space as there are lots of creative ways in which you can use it. Place a tall plant for a fresh look, include a vertical storage unit, install corner shelves and so on. Find the idea that best works for your home and take into consideration your storage needs as well. Not all has to be about looks.
