Over the years, the bedroom’s role has shifted. For some, it’s not simply the place to sleep and get dressed, but also their home office, makeup station, their workout space, and where they lounge to watch tv. With this in mind, it’s become more important than ever to ensure that your bedroom furniture is mapped out so that designated areas don’t overlap and clutter your bedroom.
