Wake Up To The Best Part Of The Morning
Bedroom isn’t just another room with a bed and cupboard in it. It is that one place where you end and begin the day, so why not make it elegant? You could be planning a bedroom or remodelling one, whichever way it would be wise to consider bedroom interior designing too. Small to large bedrooms can be designed in style with simplicity. There are just few elements in a bedroom, and when chosen correctly and placed right, everything falls into place in elegance. Here are a few tips to look out for when designing or redesigning your bedroom.
- Ventilation and circulation: Good ventilation is very essential to keep the bedroom feeling fresh always. Consider the bathroom and closet to have a great floor plan. Plan the space accordingly such that the room has more space and circulation.
- Viewpoint: No, not all bedrooms can be facing the lake or a sea, but yes the room can be planned so as to have a view of the backyard or garden. This gives the room a nice feel and a pleasant view.
- Privacy: Bedrooms are private spaces and it would be more convenient to leave the door open rather than have to shut it every time you walk in. Avoid designing a layout that allows any easy view into the bedroom from common spaces like the living room.
- Outdoor connection: Although this is not a great idea for all climates, the view it offers is a bonus. A French door to an adjacent terrace will instantly make the room more spacious and appealing with lots of natural light flooding in.
- Furniture layout: The furniture in the room is going to be the main focus. The basic design of the bedroom includes a bed of course, and then there is the dressing table, dressers, nightstands, a table and chair, cabinets for storage. To place them well, one must have a floor plan such that it allows easy navigation within the room without having to bump into furniture at all times. Place the bed such that you have access to it at least on three sides of it.
- Location of bedroom and lighting: Planning the bedroom to a corner of the home will give windows on two or more adjacent walls and you will have plenty of light and cross ventilation. If you are wondering, why you need so much light to sleep in, you can always use heavy curtains.
- Right colours: Bedrooms being a very personal space allows for individual preferences. One can choose from a wide range of neutral colours, warm colours, earth colours or even pastel colours. You may avoid bright colours as they do not simulate sleep. The right colours can go on the walls, ceiling and even the furniture.
- The right bed: Choose the right bed. Choose a bed size according to the size of the room to avoid overcrowding. Choose the right mattress too, something comfortable. If the headboard of the bed is placed against a window, choose a headboard made of metal or wrought iron, just something that does not block the light from the window.
- Wall decor: While some choose to leave the walls plain, others may use textures and artistic painting. The walls may be decorated with framed pictures and paintings.
- Floor material: One may use ceramic tiles, marble, granite or even laminated floors or wood. Ceramic tiles, marble and granite are not suitable for cold climates; they can be solved by placing a rug or carpet to cover the entire floor or near the bed.
- Fabric: Choose the right colour and design of fabrics to go well with the room. If the room is painted with light colours, the fabric chosen may be darker. If the room is painted dark, it would be wise to choose light coloured fabrics.
Curtains: It would be ideal to choose curtains that are of contrasting colours to the walls of the bedroom. Dark curtains look fabulous with light coloured walls and light coloured curtains go with dark coloured walls. If the room is small choose light fabric of curtains so that it allows light through the windows. Heavy curtains may be used for larger rooms.
