You can see the basic way his room has been configured here. The main issue with the way we had his furniture was that in this small room we ended up with a bowling alley affect between the bed and bookcase and they little spots at the ends of the bed and bookcase for his little desk and to play. When we had friends over the boys (and there are a lot of them) are all crammed into this space.
I had an idea this week and it has worked out beautifully.
I thought what if we moved his bed to the outside wall? He has a rail along the backside of the bed that would keep him from rolling into the window or kicking it.
The light from the window would make the play space under the bed lighter.
We moved this bookcase (which Tim made by the way) to the short wall where the bedroom door is, which is to the right of this photo. His desk is now on the wall were his bed used to be just to the left and out of sight of this photo.
It all works very well leaving a nice open space to set up train tracks or play with the cars, or legos.
We all really like it. Kyle did his reading on his bed yesterday, and I found Rachel up there by the window reading yesterday too.
George approves as well. He is now located in a prime space to inspire and keep an eye on all those little boys.
So what do you think? Do you like to rearrange? Change this up? Make your space more functional for your family?
