Why did I make the switch? I hated the proportion of the small cabinet with the components under the large TV. The cord also was distracting to me, but most importantly, cold air from my bedroom vent wasn't circulating like I had wanted with my bed against the wall in my master bedroom. To move it meant moving the dresser out.
Once again, the following room arrangement cost $0 in new furniture. (Although I did switch out my box spring for IKEA's wooden slats - around $30.
Next up? A paint job and a pair of light, bright, white curtains to better flow with the living room.
