Moving Tips: Setting up the bedroom

It is important to set up the bedroom correctly.

It is important to set up the bedroom correctly.

The bedroom can be one of the most difficult rooms to arrange to your liking, but because it is a room you will spend much of your time in, it could be a good idea to plan carefully. Once your moving company arrives at your new residence, you may want to have an idea of what you will do.

If you are sharing the room with your spouse, it is necessary to use discuss setup with them. This could not only prevent squabbling, but it may make the job easier. Covering all topics on what belongings will go in the room and where these items will go can improve the situation significantly.

You will need to make sure there is a room for the door to open and close. Overpacking a room is not a good idea, and preventing the door from opening fully will just get you frustrated. If you are concerned about the door marking up the wall, it could be smart to put a door stop on the wall or attached to the floor trim.

Additionally, walking space is a must. You won't want to be climbing over items or constantly bumping into furniture that will end up hurting yourself. Know the space you are moving into. If it is small, make sure that you only put in what you need. Keeping walking areas obstructed can end up being a fire hazard, as well.

Bed setups important part of process
Your bed will play an important role in how you set the room up. If the room has multiple windows, it may be a good idea to make sure your bed is next to a window. If you live in an area that is cold during some of the year, and you have an aversion to it, then you may want to keep your bed away from there. Also, if you aren't a fan of light coming through the window in the morning, then it may not be a great idea, either.

Finally, you should decide how will the bed be set up. This may seem simple, but it depends on what you will do with your room. If you prefer storage under the bed, it may be important to ensure there is a bed frame attached. This can include a headboard and footboard if you are more comfortable like that. However, you can also just use the mattress and box spring. Using a bed skirt can hide the box spring and make the bed look like it fits in the room.
