A few more tips

Placing the bed precisely opposite to the bedroom window is a great way to welcome fresh air and sunlight in a small bedroom, without experiencing any discomfort as the bed is still at a distance from the window. This position for the bed also allows you to make the most of the bedroom window design as you can sit or lie down on the window seating and read your books while enjoying a pleasant view of the outside.

Here, the bed can be seen entirely surrounded by windows, where each window allows ample natural light to enter and brighten up the entire space. Also, it is essential to note that although a significant portion of the window behind the bed has been covered with the headboard, the bedroom window on its side can still maintain proper ventilation and invite light into the room. For the best bedroom layout, you can always ask the professionals to customise the bed by keeping in mind the size of the windows so that height of the bed does not block the window in any manner.
