What's going on behind the closet door? I think your first goal should be to maximize the space of what you already have. I'd go with custom closets first, such as shelves, 2-3 drawers, and a narrow space for hanging since boys don't have much on hangers.

Aim to place all his clothes and shoes into the closet.


The closet door is not for him. I already made a custom closet in there and it’s for my husband . The closet in our room is all for me lol 😂

If the closet isn't for him, you should put in one of those closets that were featured in ikea. Like an Israeli bedroom freestanding Aron. They have hanging space, shelves, and drawers.
Think ahead and make sure it would make sense for a bar mitzvah boy with lots of hanging shirt space etc.

You can turn the bed the other way. Under the window so the new closet won't block the light and you have more space to work with

The wall against the bed should be where the wardrobe will go rh with enough room for hanging items and drawers for the rest. You can build in some shelves for books and a desk in the corner. I have this pm I’ll send you a picture. You can keep the armoire you have now for toys.

If you cant get a new bed, new linen and headboard will melt it look better.

Go to IKEA! There's one in Brooklyn. You don't have to buy furniture there if you don't like their styles but they have tons of bedroom setups to look at and a lot of clever storage and display ideas. It's good for inspiration and to get an idea of what your son likes or doesn't like.

Sketch out an outline of the room with measurements before you go so you have a concrete idea of the space you have to work with. Make sure to include doors and windows and anything else that would interfere with furniture placement (heater, outlets, etc).

The floor is gorgeous Smile and it's a very very nice room!
Haven't opened the links but in general you need lots of shelves. Walls with shelves will free up space.
I would go with neutral colors and items that can still be used long term.
I don't think it's a must to buy a new bed or new bed linen. The bed spread is very nice as it is Smile
The cup board IMHO should be turned to the other wall. Right now it intrudes on the window space.
Once you have the shelves in place I suggest the pictures to be rearranged. It makes a huge how you arrange pictures correctly.

I would get a large unit like pax from ikea that has options of shelves, rods, drawers etc like that you have everything behind closed white doors for a neat look. Leave the visual clutter to the bedding & decor.

You can get a bookshelf headboard so he can keep some books & trinkets nearby.

Consider getting a trundle bed for sleepovers

Of course . Why not? I haven’t decided yet about anything . It’s overwhelming for me. Budget is whatever. I don’t care as long as I like it and it’s not ridiculous.

Go into a place like Living Quarters and let them take care of you. Have them find you the furniture you need, discuss what to put where, and have their delivery guys install the furniture/fixtures for you.

I''m looking for something like this! I wanted a more modern look though but might order this.
Any ideas what I can search to try to get a modern map wall art?
