Placing your bed directly on the floor can often look like an accident, or a mess, so we took it upon ourselves to source a few clever ways to style your bed low, without feeling like you're in college--forever.
Move everything down Your bed is floor level, so it only makes sense that everything else should be within reach, too. Move your headboard down to prop it against the wall and eschew a standard bedside table for a chic tray instead.
Create a calm space There’s something zen and minimalist about having your bed on the floor instead of a more formal sleeping arrangement, so transform your space into the ultimate haven with muted colors and textured bedding. Candles and chic vases further add to the relaxed vibe of the room.
Let in natural light With a window like this it would be a shame to cover it up, so a bed-on-floor situation is the only way to go. Let the light shine through by providing completely unobstructed access to the window. Plus, having your bed directly under the window may help you naturally wake up earlier thanks to the early-morning light.
Hang your plants Greenery livens up any room —literally— but when placed above the bed it makes for a chic wall hanging. You can swap out your plant of choice seasonally or even according to your mood, making it a much more versatile decor option than your standard wall art.
Choose your lighting carefully One of the potential downsides of having your bed on the floor is that you may not be in easy reach of a light switch. Sidestep this problem by attaching the light to the wall just above your mattress (with an easily-accessible switch of course!).
Section it off Create a cozy nook with some strategically-placed curtains to make your sleeping area more private. We love this cabin-esque space that separates the bed itself from the rest of the bedroom.
Create an illusion with paint Transform your floor bed from convenient to deliberate with wall paint. Paint part of the wall, stopping where a headboard would end. Use a color that ties into the bed linens.
Create a canopy Works in both a child's room or an adult's apartment. There's so much room to play with fabric choice here. We've even seen it done with a tablecloth ! Add string lights for a cozy, whimsical touch.
