Layout Ideas: 1 Boxy Bedroom, 2 Smart Ways to Maximize The Space

Often the trickiest part of designing a space is finding the right layout. In our “Layout Guides” series you’ll find layout solutions for rooms of all shapes and sizes. From the square-shaped to the narrow to the just plain awkward, this is your one-stop shop for layout ideas that work.

The Space: A 150-square-foot bedroom that is square-shaped with seemingly limited furniture arrangement and design possibilities.

The Challenge: Creating a layout design for a boxy bedroom that can accommodate a queen-sized bed, dressing area, and work space with a custom desk. All while keeping the room from feeling overcrowded or dorm-like.

layout ideas

Idea #1: The L-Shaped Layout

Layout idea #1 uses what we call the L-shaped arrangement where furniture is lined up along two walls of a square bedroom. This creates a cozy corner, opens up the rest of the room, and makes the space feel less boxy.

This approach is about maximizing storage and vertical space to balance the unfurnished half of the room.

layout ideas

Why It Works:

  • The bed does not face face the door, which creates walking room and a nice flow. This layout follows the rules of good bedroom feng shui.
  • The desk by the door is the ultimate multipurpose piece. It functions as a catchall for keys and random little things, a work surface for sending emails, and a vanity for getting ready.
  • Mini dressers as nightstands give you lots of extra storage for books, sheets, and blankets.
  • Placing a bookcase in the corner makes use of vertical space for storage and takes up very little floor space.

bedroom layout ideasThis Is Great If You…

  • Are looking to design a guest room that’s more grown-up feeling. This arrangement gives the space a hotel-like look and feel.
  • Share this bedroom with another person. The layout provides enough storage and functions for two.

Idea #2: The Long Layout

Layout idea #2 is all about a sectioned approach that clearly defines sleep and work areas.

Add a sense of spaciousness to the room by lining up the bed and the desk in a row along the same wall. This also helps create good flow as soon as you walk in the door.

In this layout, there’s not a lot of storage space, but also a dedicated office area that makes the room feel like a functional live/work studio space.

bedroom layout ideas

Why It Works:

  • The desk tucked away in the corner makes a stylish office corner. This placement also takes advantage of the natural light from the window right above.
  • There’s more room for a nice comfy chair. It can be pulled up as a desk chair or moved and used as a reading chair anywhere in the room.
  • You definitely get more open floor space in with this layout since it keeps one side open with lots of walking room.

bedroom layout ideas

This Is Great If You…

  • Want a studio that has distinct spaces for all your activities, rather than feeling like one open room.
  • Don’t need a lot of space to host people in your studio apartment.
  • Live with a partner and want a space where you can cohabitate with a little more privacy and space to do your own thing.

Layout Ideas: 9 Ways to Arrange a Piano In Your Living Room

piano layout ideaOften the trickiest part of designing your space is finding the right layout. In our “Layout Guides” series you’ll find layout ideas for any space – from the square-shaped to the narrow to the just plain awkward. In this installment, we’re exploring all the stylish ways to arrange a living space with a piano.

Believe it or not, finding the right spot to place a piano in a living room is a common design dilemma our customers face. We totally get why! If you have a piano, chances are it’s either being used by you or your family regularly in a shared public space, or it holds some sentimental or personal meaning for you that makes it hard to get rid of.

Regardless of how often you play your piano, there’s no denying that it’s a substantial piece that can really only work in a few spots – or at least it might seem that way. We’re here to help show you otherwise.

Take a peek below for some inspiring ways to arrange (or rearrange) your space to accommodate a piano.


piano layout ideaFor a Pass-Through Living Room

If you’re living in a single-floor house or a home that has a series of small rooms, you might find yourself working with a square-shaped, pass-through living space that requires you to make use of every inch. Add in a substantial piece, like a piano, and it can get a little challenging to make everything fit.


piano layout ideaLayout Idea #1: Symmetrical and Focused

If you’re working with an upright piano that needs to go against a wall, make it the focal point in your square living room. Think of it almost as a stand in for a fireplace. This then lets you arrange the rest of your furniture symmetrically around it. You might think it sounds crazy to design a room around a piano, but in this case it can be a super stylish and space-saving approach.

Best For: If you like to play music for guests while entertaining, this lets you listen and lounge in total comfort. Also great if you’re a family of musicians that enjoys taking turns playing tunes.


piano layout ideaLayout Idea #2: Cornered and Composed

This approach is probably the most common when you’re working with an upright piano. By placing it flush against two walls in a corner, the piano doesn’t interfere with the flow of the rest of a square room but is still easily accessible. It’s a great way to carve out a perfect little practice area.

Best For: If you have little ones who are learning the piano and your home sees a lot of foot-traffic and commotion. This keeps your space open.


piano layout ideaLayout Idea #3: Grand and Balanced

With a grand piano, try making room for it by dividing your space into two areas down the middle: One side for lounging, one side with just the grand piano, which instantly becomes a statement and sculpture in the room. This is also a great way to play up a formal vibe in a small space – who doesn’t love getting cozy next to a grand piano, right?

Best For: If you have a grand piano that you want to show off in a fancy way.


piano layout ideaFor a Long and Narrow Living Room

A common room shape for apartments and city townhouses, you’ll find that these elongated spaces often have to serve multiple needs (living and entertaining, impromptu work area, TV spot) with tight square footage to work with. With a piano in the picture, some smart maneuvering is definitely required.


piano layout ideaLayout Idea #1: Keep It on the Sidelines

Many long living rooms end up having only one source of natural light from windows at the very far end of the space. This might be the best spot for setting up an upright piano if you need your space to function as an all-in-one living and gathering spot where you’ll be spending time watching TV or hosting friends and drink nights. This approach keeps the piano off to the side but it helps to anchor the room as it’s the first thing you’ll see.

Best For: If you like jamming out with friends but have a catch-all space that’s used for everything.


piano layout ideaLayout Idea #2: Blend It into the Decor

Why not simply make your upright piano a part of your living room decor by arranging it as you would a piece of furniture. By placing the piano opposite your sofa and adding chairs on both side, it immediately feels like a natural component in the room. We especially love how this also opens up room for a work desk. Talk about multipurpose!

Best For: If you’d rather play some ballads than watch TV. Or if your piano is an heirloom that you want to incorporate as a part of your daily life. This layout idea gives it the attention it deserves.


piano layout ideaLayout Idea #3: Set It Up Like a Stage

Place a grand piano at the end of a long room to give it a performance-stage-like set up that immediately makes your space feel polished and pulled together. We like to think of this as the high-low approach, where you can easily have people over for both movie night as well as a piano performance (even at the same time!).

Best For: If you’re a serious pianist who also loves having people over for recitals. If you ask us, we love a good sing-a-long hangout!


piano layout ideaFor a Large and Open Living Room

Often these open living spaces with a fireplace are found in family homes and multi-story houses. But just because you have more space to work with doesn’t mean finding the right spot for a piano is any easier.

piano layout ideaLayout Idea #1: Put Baby (Grand) In a Corner

Arrange your furniture to face one corner and put your grand (or baby grand) there so that it becomes the sculptural spotlight in the room. This set-up guarantees that your piano will be the centerpiece in the room. And whether you use it often or not, it’s bound to add intrigue and balance to your space.

Best For: If you have a formal sitting room where you like to host formal cocktail parties. Also, this is great if you have an eclectic mix of furnishings in a big space; the piano will help unify everything.


piano layout ideaLayout Idea #2: Use It For a Vignette

If you’d rather your grand piano be off to the side as opposed to part of the room as much, try to create a vignette with it as the centerpiece. Hang art on the walls around it and pull in few tall plants to make it a visually stimulating spot all on its own.

Best For: If your piano is more for display than use.


piano layout ideaLayout Idea #3: Make It Double as Display

Don’t forget that your piano can have uses beyond being just making music. That’s particularly true for upright pianos, which can also hold art on top. In a big space, try thinking of it as you would a bookshelf and slipping it into a corner with favorite art placed above it.

Best For: If your living room is for casual hangouts where you like to turn out some tunes.

Small Space Ideas: 1 Studio Apartment, 2 Clever Layouts

In our “Layout Guides” series you’ll find layout solutions for rooms of all shapes and sizes. Often the trickiest part of designing a space, finding the right layout for your room can be a challenge. We will feature a variety of rooms – from the square, to the narrow, to the just plain awkward – outfitted with two different layouts that work.


If you’ve ever lived in a studio apartment, you know that while space may be limited, your design possibilities are not. This week we tackle two layouts for a square-shaped studio with an open floor plan.

Explore the two layout ideas below and steal a few ideas for your own studio apartment!

studio apartment layout guide

The space: A 450 square foot studio apartment with a corner kitchen and two walls of windows.

The Challenge: Designing a layout that included a desk, space for TV viewing, and dining area, all while maximizing the usability of the space to make it feel open and uncluttered.

Idea #1: The Open Layout

Layout idea #1 is all about creating flow inside our studio apartment, making the space feel open, airy, and uncluttered. This setup is great for those who like to entertain and have people over often.

studio apartment layout guide

Why It Works:

  • The furniture hugs the walls, maximizing open space to create a layout that emphasizes good flow.
  • The bistro table for two in the kitchen separates the dining area from the rest of the space. This is also a great way to combat a lack of counter space (a not uncommon problem in small spaces), as the table can double as a kitchen island.
  • The bench stands in for a coffee table, but can also double as extra seating when guests come over.
  • Poufs tuck neatly away under the bench, and also work as footrests, side tables, or perches for guests or pets.
  • A triple threat, the bookcase provides extra storage, acts as a room divider, and gives privacy to the bed area.

studio apartment layout

This Is Great If You…

  • Love to entertain and host small and large gatherings in your space.
  • Live alone or don’t need a studio apartment layout that maximizes privacy.
  • Hate clutter – there’s nowhere to stash a mess in this layout.
  • Want to take advantage of a layout that maximizes extra space – for yoga, dancing, or any other activity that requires a little extra breathing room.

Idea #2: The Zoned Layout

By using furniture to section off – or “zone” – spaces, this layout makes each distinct area feel like its own room. The best part is that the bed is totally tucked away in a cozy corner that feels secluded from the rest of the space.

studio apartment layout guide

Why It Works:

  • “Floating” the sofa in the middle of the room helps divide the space into distinct areas, like living/dining, bedroom and office.
  • Place the dining area by the windows to create a sunny breakfast nook vibe.
  • Tuck the bed away behind the desk area, to create a separate space with more privacy.
  • Plop the sofa directly across from the wall-mounted TV to make Netflix binges more convenient and comfortable.

studio apartment layout guide

This Is Great If You…

  • Want a studio that has distinct spaces for all your activities, rather than feeling like one open room.
  • Don’t need a lot of space to host people in your studio apartment.
  • Live with a partner and want a space where you can cohabitate with a little more privacy and space to do your own thing.

The Look: Discerning Collector

bedroom designsWhy We Love It:

Maybe the new year inspired you to to become a minimalist, but you just can’t shake your love of boho spaces. We’d like to introduce you to the Discerning Collector style.

A clean and minimal style that let’s it’s eclectic touches shine, this look is about pared-down forms with just a few bold accent pieces mixed in.

bedroom designsHow to Bring This Style Home:

Contrast is key when it comes to creating the Discerning Collector look. Choose a handful of sleek modern pieces like a mid-century bed frame or industrial wood desk, and offset them with some unique gems that bring a little personality and drama.

Keep the color scheme neutral while you pile on the patterns and textures. This will inspire a minimal look that still shows off its boho touches.

The Look: Mod Enthusiast

Why We Love It:

An approach to contemporary design lets you enjoy the look of modern interiors without fully committing to living in them. Here, comfort and style add up for a look that’s both trendy and inviting.

bedroom designsHow to Bring This Style Home:

Look for furniture with streamlined forms with a mid-century influence. The Mod Enthusiast style flaunts tapered legs, natural wood grains, and no-frills pieces, but never strays from being comfortable.

Invite a little color with the addition of bright artwork, pillows, and even a geometric rug. The result is a even distribution of eye-catching and inviting designs.

The Look: Rustic Warmth

bedroom designsWhy We Love It:

It doesn’t get cozier than this bedroom outfitted in our latest Rustic Warmth collection. It’s a look that takes a light and airy approach to rustic style, and mixes in just the right amount of cozy comforts. You’ll be so snuggly you’ll never want to leave. bedroom designs

How to Bring This Style Home:

The key to the Rustic Warmth look is to have a mix of contemporary furniture, rustic touches, and cozy accents. Furniture with clean-lines is your friend, along with antiques that show a little visible wear – we never saw a patina we didn’t like!

If you want a slightly more contemporary look, keep to natural woods in lighter shades. Earthy tones, and natural textures, such as woven baskets, rugs, and hides are also great.

Top it all off with a few layers of lush greenery!

The Look: Reclaimed Visionary

The ultimate power couple, strong lines with industrial materials-who-mean-business, give Reclaimed Visionary it’s refined boldness. If you’re someone who likes to blend warm and cool notes in your space, this might be the look for you.

bedroom designsHow to Bring the Style Home:

Look for foundational pieces that are made with raw materials – metal bookcases, a robust wood bed frame and dresser, a few sculptural table lamps, and some leather accents. Embrace a spare look balanced by pieces with crisp lines and major presence.

Keep to a palette of black, brown, and gray for a more edgy and moody ambience.

The Look: Rustic Traveler

bedroom designsWhy We Love It:

This eclectic-meets-rustic look appeals to your inner love of vintage pieces and doesn’t apologize for it’s boho vibes. Every piece has a story and they all work together to create a collected and personal space.

bedroom designsHow to Bring This Style Home:

You’ll want to hunt down a few vintage and one-of-a-kind pieces and pair them with unique worldly accents. Pile on the patterns, colors, and plants, which are the shining stars of the Rustic Traveler style.

Let the stories behind each piece shine; it will in turn give your space a sense of richness and warmth.

Guest Room Tips

Stress-Free Hosting: 7 Things Every Great Guest Room Needs

Guest Room Tips

Tis the season for overnight guests and visiting out-of-towners. And if you’re lucky enough to be named the host with the most extra bedrooms, you might be feeling more stressed than jolly.

But fret not, the secret to stress-free hosting isn’t skipping town for the holidays (although a New Year’s beach vacation is definitely on our wish list), it’s a well-prepped guest room that’s sure to impress.

Since you probably already are familiar with the guest room basics like a bed frame, comfy mattress, and clean linens, here are 7 of our favorite ways to whip your guest room into shape, all before your in-laws arrive.


guest room tips

1. Set up a place to unpack

After they lug their suitcase up the stairs, your guests will appreciate having a place to park their luggage and unpack. Try placing a bench or a pair of poufs at the foot of the bed. This also doubles as a great place for them to take shoes off or get ready for the day.

2. Keep guests feeling cozy

No matter the season, give your guests the hotel treatment by readying your guest room with a basket stocked with extra linens, pillows, and blankets. Think cozy cashmere throws, cable-knit blankets, and fluffy pillows for winter, or linen sheets and cotton throws for the warmer seasons.guest room tips

3. Dress to impress

Sometimes it’s those big finishing touches that truly round out the guest room ambiance. A full-length mirror is just the accent piece that brings a luxe look and feel to the space. Place one against a wall for your guests to use while they get dressed for breakfast or dinner.

guest room tips

4. Start a conversation with art

Tell your story to visitors through the art and objects you display in your home. While this might not seem like an essential, showcasing unique art and accessories is a great way to make your guests’ stay more memorable. Not sure what to pick? Think about choosing pieces that will spark a conversation – photographs from your trip to Iceland? Perfect. A woven basket that looks better on the wall than in the kitchen? Yes please!

5. Make storage easy

Set your guests up for success with a handy place to stash clothes, toiletries, and even surprise hostess gifts (wishful thinking?). A stylish dresser and pair of nightstands is a great place to start! Also consider pulling in a woven hamper for your guests to easily toss used towels and linens. This simple addition majorly ups the hospitality factor.

guest room tips

6. Ensure ample lighting

Place a pair of reading lamps on the nightstands, but don’t forget to think about lighting for the rest of your guest room as well. Sconces above a dresser or on the wall opposite the bed can be a light-touch way to add more sources of illumination, while a floor lamp by a window will cast a warm glow that can help cozy up the ambiance for your guests.

7. Make room for personal space

Give your guests a place to relax and unwind with a cozy reading nook or desk area. This is a great, no-pressure way for them (and you) to enjoy some personal space during their visit. Add a bookcase with old and new tomes for guests to peruse, and even include a tray stocked full of goodies like coffee, tea, and snacks. It’s these finishing elements that can truly make a space feel homey for visitors.

It’s all about the patterns inside this customer’s nursery. The chevron wallpaper, geometric rug, and pops of tropical prints create a space that is dynamic and fun, while the unified color palette keeps the space cohesive. We love this space because it is fun and full of great pieces that will transition well into a “big kid” room and eventually a even work for a teenager’s bedroom.

Modsy Stylist Picks

Natural materials in all their textured glory are the stars of this home office. The raw woods, nubby wool, woven jute, and brassy accents collaborate for a look that is warm and inviting. We also have to give a shout out to the dark green wall, a great backdrop that allows these organic materials sing!


Look 3: Lofty bedroom goals

Modsy Stylist Picks

Who says you have to push all your furniture against the wall? Not this loft bedroom. Tilted at an angle, this bed breaks up all the rigid geometry of the room and gives a dynamic quality to the space. We also love the round nightstands and double pouf action for bringing some organic elements to the loft look.

Look 4: An ultra-glam living room

Modsy Stylist Picks

Even though you could buy this whole look in the express checkout lane (15 items or less please!), we are totally crushing on this less-is-way-more glamorous living room look. All about form and texture, we love the simplicity of the clean lines, black and gold color scheme, and graphic pops of pattern.

Bonus Round: You don’t need floor-to-ceiling windows and a skyline view to pull this style off. Don’t believe us? We can show you.


Wall Seeking Sofa: A Living Room Love Story

One of the greatest challenges people face when designing their space is choosing a color palette. There’s the sofa, the rug, the throw pillows, the wall color – so many variables to account for that it makes the process overwhelming. So if you suffer from decidophobia or just want to give your space an air of design confidence, try on the idea of a monochromatic living space.

Why do we love this look? The matching sofa and wall color combo envelope your space in color and create a sense of luxury. There is a sort of “casual drama” to the look, as the heavy saturation pushes dramatic, while the lack of contrast pulls minimal. Less visual information for the brain to digest, the monochromatic palette promotes pattern and texture from sidekicks to stars.

Browse these 8 perfect pairings below. And if you’re feeling adventurous, see it in your space with Modsy.

Stylist tip: If the idea of a color-drenched interior makes you seasick, try limiting it to just one accent wall behind your sofa.
