  • Placing the bed in the corner of the room will give you enough space to put on a desk and an armchair right across from it.

With King-Size Bed

A king-sized bed may not properly fit in a 10 x 10 bedroom because it can be a bit overcrowding. You can’t put your king-sized bed in the center of your room because there will not be enough space for access and navigation. You can select a smaller bed to better maximize the space.

However, if you only have a king-sized bed there are still options on how you can lay out your to make the most of your room.

Below you can see three different floor plan options with a twin-sized bed. We tried to optimize space for teenagers or kids.

Layout #10

In this square-shaped bedroom layout, the bed is tucked up against the wall, as well as the drawers, closets, and a few furniture pieces.

  • This leaves the center of the room with an open space that can serve as an area for playtime.
  • Not having huge furniture beside or near the window is also a great design choice.
  • This will provide enough natural daylight throughout the room and prevent your kid from bumping into furniture edges while playing.

Layout #11

  • A 10×10 room is ideal for a kid or a teenager.
  • By pushing the bed against one side of the wall, more space is left for the study area.
  • Since kids can be messy in the bedroom, having enough closets, drawers, and storage spaces where they can keep their toys, books, and other belongings will help them keep their room organized.
  • A runner is placed on the open area between the bed and the desk which is a great space for playtime.
  • Nothing is blocking from the door footpath to the bed, which is a great design choice for a kid’s room.

Layout #12

Who says you can’t place two beds in a small bedroom? This layout perfectly fits two twin-sized beds, leaving just enough space at the center as an access route and can also double as a play area.

  • To maximize the limited space, opt for a narrower closet or a low shelf for toy storage.
