Beds in Front of Windows

Over here at Casa Lewis I have a bedroom conundrum.

Currently I have my bed against a wall...which looks great

However, with tiny closets and an ever growing collection of crap

I NEED MORE STORAGE.

I have a large window in my room which if I put the bed up against would make me have like 10x more space...

I as a designer know, that beds in front of windows are totally acceptable

But the duck....he's not so sure.

Lets take a look at some amazing bedrooms where beds in front of windows totes works

  1. Go for it! As your photos show, it's perfectly fine and fab to do so. If I could roll over each morning and look out the window and see the ocean like we see here, it would make my day. 10x more real estate is a lot! Gotta convince that duck lady.

  3. i think it works well- we just did it in our bedroom, because i wanted the bed centered on the wall. our window was sort of small though, so we extended the curtain rod to make it appear grander. here is the link if you want to see...

  4. I don't mind it at all, I think I actually prefer the ones that don't look like they're trying to disguise the window being there.

  5. Phew! That is a lot of beds in front of windows! I love the look. I'm a bed-in-front-of-window person myself. I think it's perfect and I love being able to pop up and look outside.

  7. The first photo is actually my bedroom and putting my bed in front the window gave me a ton more space in my room as well. An added bonus is waking up and being able to open the drapes/raise my shades and have sun shine right on me...love it.

  9. We went through a similar thing. My husband was in favor of in front of the window. I was opposed. We moved it and it has been great. (Nick Olsen is also a fan of beds in front of windows, btw.)

  10. One of my favorite topic. How many rooms do you walk into that are all wonk bc people refuse to put the bed in the best position- under the window. Do it!

  14. I seem to remember that duck is English, right?? Ya see, in England we just don't put beds in front of windows. That's why. It's the Royal rule... hee hee. Just kidding.... but it isn't done often in the UK.... however, all the images here are stunning... I think you have a good stock of examples to change his mind ;o)

  15. Question: I have been wanting to try my bed in front of the window for awhile now. I think it would really open up the room. My window is small and not in the center of the wall, I notice that in all the pics above the window seems to be centered on the wall. Do you think it matters? Can it still be done? Would love some opinions

  16. It definitely works. Waking up and having sunlight on your face is a great feeling!

  18. You would think that your "Duck" would trust your opinion by now. I personally love a bed in front of a window, especially if you notice it as you walk into the room. Good luck convincing him, I would love to see a photo once its done.

  29. I currently have my bed in front of a window HOWEVER it is off-center and driving me crazy. That wall has two windows separated by about a foot of wall, but I have drapes covering the whole expanse so when they're closed (which is most of the time) it looks like one big window. I'm thinking I need to try moving the bed over so it is centered on this big wall of drapery, I'm just worried that it is going to cramp up the side of the room where my closet is. It might be worth it though because every time I think about that off-centered bed I want to punch things. I can't believe I'm sharing this but here is the horribleness: http://christinaebbers.files.wordpress.com/2012/07/thoughts01.jpg?w=460&h=345

  30. I, really, am not a fan of windows in bedrooms for the reason that I am scared that some paranormal creature will just pop out of nowhere. Lol. But these bedroom designs, in some way, changed my viewpoint. If my bedroom has windows and an amazing environment and view like those above, then I would most definitely feel comfortable, relaxed and, of course, safe :D

  31. It's just the way it's supposed to be. It classes things up plus the design isn't too shabby either. Just a wonderful placement for bedrooms.

  32. Window treatments in our bedroom play a significant role in setting the mood of sleeping and waking up. I can only imagine the incredible feeling of getting up every morning; being greeted by the sunlight. =)

  33. Even if a bed in front of a window isn’t a conventional position in bedroom etiquette, I can see it’s going to be fantastic. It offers an alternative, which is energy-efficient. We all love natural light! And it would be nice to read books without the need to turn on a lamp. Plus, it won’t make you feel crowded in a four-sided space at all. I think wall-to-ceiling type of windows would go best with the idea. ;)

  34. Nice interior designs of bedroom, i loved to have my bed beside or front of the bedroom window. Window gives the room a very special look and at morning when light came in through them gives a much pleasant view. Thanks for sharing such a nice post. Wish you very best of luck.

  43. I don’t see the point of disguising the windows either, a bed against the window works well I think. The light coming through in the morning would warm up the room in gold tones and be a nice way to wake up. If the window is to the side of the wall and not central, then add a simple blind for effect.
