Two Beautiful Beds That Maximize the Space They’re In

By Christa Terry

A bed can dominate a room or get lost in it, depending on the bed and on the room. Big, bold beds can be absolutely fabulous, until you put them into a tiny room and there’s no visual room for anything else but posters and headboards and footboards and pillows. And small, unassuming beds can stand out in that same tiny room with the right linens or fade into the background if your bedroom happens to be larger than most. Today I ran across two beds that used clever solutions to overcome problems.

The first is perfect for anyone who, like me, has a bedroom with crazy sloped walls. If the joint between the vertical wall and the slanted wall is placed low, the easiest solution is to choose a very short headboard. But in many cases, a very short headboard will be boring and potentially so unnoticeable as to be no better than no headboard at all. This bed gets some oomph with a little extra headboard action – by wrapping it around the wall, it seems bigger than it is.

If, on the other hand, your problem is a long but very narrow room, you may think that you’re doomed to having no bedside storage or living in a space so cramped that you might as well be in one of those economy hotels in Japan. But what if you used fantastic built-ins to not only give you a beautiful bed, but also plenty shelving for books and anything else you might want in a pinch while in bed? This example has a twin mattress in a day bed frame, but imagine the same bed with a full or queen mattress facing outward. Perfect for the narrow room, no?
