For tightly cramped quarters, sometimes you have to think outside of the box... and possibly away from the wall. Depending on your apartment's layout, floating a bed in the middle of a room might be your best option for ease of access to doors and closets, or to break up the space and act as an extra sitting area in a studio. However, it may be a difficult arrangement to get used to...
We have to admit, the thought of doing this in our own room seriously creeps us out. This is probably due the fact that it makes one highly susceptible to sneak attacks from behind, but, um, maybe that's just us. We do love the style of the room at top, and with an added headboard it might not feel like such a vulnerable position. What are your thoughts on placing a bed away from the walls?
