  • After placing the bed, bring in the next largest furniture inside the bedroom. After the bed, the dressing table would be the second largest furniture that needs to be placed. Fix it to the corner that receives maximum light, so that you can dress in natural light during day time.
  • Look for bedside tables that will easily fit corner space. If the bed is fixed to the sides, get a slightly larger sized table that would serve the purpose of putting in all stuff of people using the bed.
