Good Questions: How Can I Make This Bedroom Work?

Pin it button big

Hello AT,

I have a bed that I love. Its tall, quite wide and amazingly comfortable and I really don't want to part with it.

My bedroom, on the other hand has a 7 foot ceiling. I want to find a way of making it work. I think I will have to go for a cosy look - trying to disguise the low-ceiling seems like it would be a waste of time.

Thing is... I don't really know what to do to make it work. What should I do with the walls? Other furniture? windows? Carpet (old a brownish... has to go!)? The list of questions goes on...

(Note: Include a pic of your problem and your question gets posted first.)

The attached picture shows just how close the mattress is to the ceiling. It also shows that the room is thin (so the wide bed takes up the bulk of the space at one end).

What you don't see is that the room is actually quite long and thin. Generally an odd shaped room. What to do? Should I just give in and get rid of my beloved bed?

Thanks! Fiona
