I would move everything out of the corner with the dresser if possible. Having a trashcan on the floor as you enter is bad feng shui, all the positive energy coming into the room goes in the trash! There is that wall sticking out next to the dresser which also blocks the energy coming into the room, you need to open that area up and put something there that makes the flow of energy go into the room and not stop at the wall, maybe a very small table with a very small table fountain or something positive and soothing, depending on the direction that corner is in (North South East West...)
Also looking at the layout you have the bed against the Lilian bathroom, what if you moved the bed onto the opposite wall or angled it in between the two window walls? People looking at the diagram might think there will be a lot of noise from the Lilian bathroom....
That trash can isn't there anymore for just that reason (but you don't know that looking at the picture, I know). I feel like an idiot for missing it that day when I took the pix and I was beat when I was done so did not go back to retake. I used to have to move it after the housekeeper was done, she kept putting it there!
All of what you say is true. What USED to be where the dresser is was a hanging rack attached to the wall and the luggage rack. Everyone walked into the hanging rack. The mirror there opened that up quite a bit and made the room more 'happy'.
Don't want to move bed in front of windows (this discussion was on here before you joined, I think). Room didn't book before floor plan went into effect, so not entirely that reason. The room does book in person when you can see how close all the rooms are, so that doesn't seem to be an issue in person
If I want to provide ALL the amenities a guest wants...place to put 'stuff', mirror, dresser, chairs, luggage rack, bed (ha, ha) I'm kind of stuck with the layout as is. Putting the bed anywhere else either blocks all the front windows and puts the bed right up to the street noise and facing into the bathroom, or, on the other wall, the bathroom door hits the bed and the bed is under the A/C unit and off balance because of the other window.
How about I hang some sort of picture on the wall next to the dresser so you see the picture instead of the wall when you walk into the room? It wouldn't show in the photo, but it might help overall. I did that in the Parlor Room (directly underneath this room).
I think the bed needs more oomph. Some throw pillows or something to perk it up. It's huge and that quilt doesn't photo well. It's beautiful, but pale.
Yes, to the doors open. I'll retake that way. Someone else said I should face the windows to make the room look bigger. So I'll try that, too.
