Setting up a boy room - Need ideas


Attached are the few pics and layout of the room. Room is recently pained with two colors. Room has carpet with mirror closet door. The window is facing outside that provide plenty of light into the room. The closet floor is tile.
The room has 4 recessed lights but the closet has none. The room is totally empty now and we are trying to arrange a bed and few other things like book case, etc..

I would like to see a spacious and brighter room. So trying to understand the best places to arrange bed and other things. Please help me with the ideas.

Have you thought of a single bed longwise against the window, daybed style? That gets you the most usable floor space and wall space for other items.

I like the daybed idea. But are you saying setup the bed next to window ? In that case, if we need work on window, bed would be on the way, right ?

Next on the daybed, does the backrest can be folded in the night or it will remain on ?

For harmony Feng Shui says to place a bed with the foot towards the door.

Interesting !!

Can you elaborate more on this ?
Foot can be towards the door :
If the bed is right next to the interior wall (opposite to window)
If the bed is right next to the wall that is opposite to closet but right next to the window

hi,
I used to have a Feng Shui book but don't remember much else about it, but it's the difference you feel in a room that's comfortable and feels 'right' as opposed to a room that feels awkward.

I just now googled..........Feng Shui boys bedroom and see that there are a lot of sites.

Also what color bed will match to these wall colors ? I have just painted these walls so I will not be changing the wall colors but since I have not purchased the bed, I can choose the bed color. Please suggest.

The easiest way to decorate a small space is to buy the most prominent items first (the bedding) and pick the paint colors from that. Those colors are overwhelming in a small room.

Hi,
You can set up a boys room in many ways. Here I am sharing some of the ideas :-
1. You can use themes like soccer theme or any other sport based theme if he is a sports lover.
2. Also you can create pleasant-sounding with cozy details that will encourage creativity and his imagination.
3.You can also the idea of hidden bookshelf decor. It will give a really beautiful look.
