Q: "Can my bed be on an angle? I have no space otherwise. How will it look best?" -Ellen D.
A: Ellen, that's a great question! Whenever it comes to furniture layout in my own projects, my general rule is that the simplest answer is usually always the best. Floating a bed at an angle can be especially challenging because it actually takes up more floor space than one that is placed flat against a wall. My advice is to try setting it up flat against the wall first, but, if the room truly works best when it's placed at an angle, then that is most likely the best decision. I might angle a bed in a large bedroom, but, I would be very cautious about using that idea in a smaller space. This bright, cheerful bedroom from New York designer Nick Olsen shows that with a little creativity, you can work a bed into even the smallest of spaces.
