How To Design The Perfect Bedroom?
Do you know why hotel rooms feel ‘just right? Most hotel rooms have a design that is simple and functions well. This can be a challenge; bedrooms need to accommodate a bed, which is huge and take up most of the space. They dictate the placement of other objects, i.e., night table, chest of drawers, etc. Nevertheless, it’s by following the rule ‘keep it simple, keep it functional that most hotels manage to design rooms that seem well put together.
How can you achieve a similar look and feel at home? The following tips will help you design the perfect bedroom:
When planning out your bedroom layout, keep the circulation (foot traffic) to one side. This can be challenging if there is an en-suite bathroom or large closet. Rooms with closets and bathrooms tend to have closet and bathroom access before entering the sleeping area. As a result, they require a longer hallway. If you design your space so that the bathroom and closet are accessed by going through the sleeping area, you will free up more space, making your bedroom seem larger.
Imagine opening your bedroom doors, and the first thing you notice is the view outside. Unfortunately, in most home bedrooms, the bed is the first thing people notice. If your window looks out onto a lake, a nice vista, or even your backyard, then change the layout so that the view becomes the focal point.
It isn’t easy to keep the bedroom door closed at all times, but you still want to maintain privacy. This is a common problem in smaller homes where a kitchen or living room is near the bedroom. The ideal solution is to create a layout so that even when the bedroom door is open, people looking in from the hallway cannot see the bed, i.e., they cannot gain a direct view of the bedroom. This can be achieved by paying attention to how you place the bed.
Create a Proper Layout:
The architecture of your bedroom will determine the amount and type of furniture you can have. If your bedroom is small in size, consider contemporary furniture styles, as these are sleek and designed to save space. Ideally, even after including a modern nightstand, bedroom dresser, desk, and chair, you need to be able to access your bed from three sides and still have room to walk around.
Increase Ventilation and Light:
If possible, locate your bedroom in the corner of your home. This will give you two adjacent walls. This placement has the benefit of gaining access to soft, natural light and cross ventilation.
Stick to One Design:
When selecting interior décor for your bedroom, it is essential to stick to one theme, i.e., Hamptons, French Country, etc. Select furniture pieces that suit that period. For example, if your bedroom reflects modern design, then select contemporary furniture styles. This creates a cohesive look to your space.
