Does a bed need to be centered on a wall?
January 12, 2013 in Design Dilemma
in my master bedroom, which is shaped like a rectangle, I only have one solid wall (a long side of the rectangle) to put my bed . I am thinking about placing the bed to one side of the long wall so I have more room to add seating on the opposite end of the room . I am not sure if this will make the room feel off balanced. interested in opinions as most images on this site have the bed centered from what I can tell . thanks!

Your bed doesn't have to be centred on the long wall. Shifting it so you can accommodate a seating area makes a lot of sense.

It is hard to find photos of bedrooms with beds off center. They do exist though. You can balance the room with a seating arrangement, artwork, rugs. Beds do not need to centered.

Thanks for your help. Once my room is completed I am posting it, clearly marked off center bed.
