Here at Apartment Therapy, we spend a lot of time talking about small spaces. We've written a lot about how to deal with a small bedroom, but what if you have the opposite problem? A giant, cavernous space can feel just as oppressive as a tiny, cramped one. With that in mind, we've rounded up some ideas (and beautiful inspiration photos) for making your big bedroom feel cozy.

Above: a big fluff comforter (and a cozy chair) will go a long way towards making a big space feel homey.

Pulling the bed away from the wall is a great way to fill a large bedroom — and focus a lot of dramatic attention on the bed, which is really the main event anyway. Here, an oversized chest serves as a headboard and a little extra storage all in one.

Make a big room feel cozier with thick rugs and lots of layered textiles.

A sitting area in your bedroom is a nice way to relax before bed — and a nice way to fill up a little extra space.

If you don't mind working in the bedroom, adding a desk at the foot of your bed is a great way to fill a little extra space.
