Extra Storage

"If you have space, a headboard [or ledge] where you can store and place items sometimes works for tight spaces." - Frenjick Quesada, interior designer

"Before purchasing other furniture pieces for your bedroom, consider your preferences and needs," shares interior designer Hannah Acab-Faustino. "Do you need a work desk or computer in the bedroom? Is a dressing table or dresser required?"

Accent Pieces

Place an upholstered bench at the foot of the bed to make your bed cozier or light reading or watching TV.

"Accent with throws [and] bolster pillows. Layer textures, patterns, and color," adds Frenjick.
