A bedroom is a private place where people relax or nap during the day and sleep during nights. Of course, a bedroom won’t be a bedroom if there is no bed. Aside from a comfortable bed, it has standard furnishings like a dresser, night stand, desk, and closet. Some bedrooms have balcony connected to it where one can have a breath of fresh air. We spend most of our time in the bedroom because we spend 7to 9 hours sleeping and we still take some nap during the day. It could be considered as someone’s favorite place.
Here are the main points to remember when designing your bedroom.
Your bed will be the focal point in your bedroom. So, select your bed according to the size of your room if your bedroom is large, then go for king size bed. If your bedroom is not big enough, go for a medium size bed. Also, choose a good mattress. Something that is soft and comfortable would be perfect.
Choose the right flooring material
- Instead of using cold flooring like ceramic tiles, marble or granite, make use of laminated flooring, wood, or carpet. It is not advisable to use ceramic tiles because it will only make your floor cold. But if you already have marble or ceramic flooring in your bedroom, put a rug or a carpet near your bedside.
Choose the right colors
In choosing colors for a bedroom, make sure you will use neutral colors, warm colors and pastel colors. These should be used on your walls, ceilings and even your furniture. Avoid using bright colors. Make sure that the colors of your furniture and even fabrics complement each other.
Use the right lightings
In a bedroom, it’s good to “layer” your lighting throughout the room. Ambient lighting light the whole room, small lamps can focus light for reading and other activities. Each light should be adjustable with a dimmer. Install a separate on/off switch for each light so that you can be selective and light only the area you want.
Have a smart storage space
Of course, you would always have a cabinet in your room where you will place your clothes and other belongings. It is advisable to have extra cabinet to make sure your things are well kept. Be wise in placing it in order to save space. A bedroom should be well arranged, neat and clutter-free. Having enough storage spaces will help you avoid clutter.
Choose the right colors and designs for fabric
When you choose a bedcover and curtains, make sure it will look well in the room. Consider the color of your room. You can choose darker fabrics if your room is light and lighter fabrics if your room is dark. Also, try to look for a design that suits the concept of your room. you might also use a curtain with two layers. The fabric can actually show your personality. So, choose well.
