Small Bedroom - Ideas for placing the bed in front of a window

My guest bedroom has two small closets, one window, a door, and not too much space to place a bed. I was hesitating to place the bed against the window until I found some really nice ideas for small bedrooms with the window behind the headboard. You have just to pay attention to some details such as the headboard or window size to make it work!

1. LOWER HEADBOARD

If you have a small window, go for a lower headboard to let the light in. In this bedroom, the white shutter is a great compliment for the white bed and bedding. 


This room doesn't seem to be small. However placing the bed against the window helped to create softness between the two large armoires (love them!). What a beautiful bedroom!


2. GOING OFF CENTER

Does the bed need to be always in the center? Of course not! 


3. OPEN HEADBOARD

Open headboard is also an option for not blocking the light. 


4. IF YOU HAVE A SECOND WINDOW

If you are lucky enough to have two windows, it's okay to go taller with you headboard.

5 - IF YOU HAVE A LARGE WINDOW

If your window is huge like this one in this photo, the size of your headboard doesn't really matter. You can just go taller and the sun will still light up your space! ;-)

As you see, placing your bed against the window shouldn't be a no no anymore! ;-)

Updates on my projects: I finally found the brackets for my floating shelves (remember my office project?).  I also found a nice, cute, pretty, vintage piece of furniture that I will be working on it. Can't wait to share with you! 

Hope you are enjoying your warm days! ;-)

  4. Good Afternoon Fabrizia, You have given me lots to think about, because I live in England and our houses tend to be smaller than the houses in America. I love the bedroom designed by Kristie Barnett, especially the pair of armoires.... they are gorgeous.
    Thank you so much for the advice, I am going to be decorating my bedroom soon, so I am thrilled to have found you.
    It is lovely to meet you and I have become a new follower.
    I would like to invite you to visit me at Ivy, Phyllis and Me! as you will always be welcome.
    Best Wishes

  6. I don't have a small bedroom but I also don't have any wall space, it is all windows and doors!! So if I don't put the bed in front of a window I wouldn't have a bed. It is a four poster and it perfectly frames the window. You know "designers" are the people that told us not to put the bed in front of a window! Of course they tell us a lot of things that we should ignore. LOL MAH
