When it comes to bedroom design, certain bedroom layouts work better than others, especially when it comes to pursuing harmony and restful sleep. What happens, though, if you turn your bed 180 degrees and place it in the middle of the room, facing a window (or two). We’re admiring this type of bedroom layout, but do we dare to jump on the turned bed trend?
Here are 10 bedrooms featuring this unusual furniture configuration.

Above: Owners Fiona and Tony Hooper turned to architect Sheila Narusawa to overhaul their Harbor Cottage in Maine. Narusawa created the lofty master suite out of three small bedrooms. She anchored a turned bed to an island in the center of the room, allowing the area behind to serve as a dressing area/office. To learn more about the remodel, see A Cottage Reborn in Coastal Maine.
