Making sure that your bedroom is perfectly designed to exude your personal style, comfort and still keeping it functional is no easy feat. Needless to say, one cannot use the same design principle as used for the rest of the home. So, here are some simple tips on how you can achieve the ideal bedroom design and make it your sanctuary.
Keep It Personal
Your bedroom is your personal space. It is not often up for display for your visitors to see. It is a space that you use to relax, unwind and retrospect, hence it is of utmost importance that the design you adopt for this room is personal. The colours used, patterns, materials, etc should be something that you relate to. You could be a boho soul or the one for minimalism- a little self-analysis will help you outline an ideal bedroom design that will help you create a space that screams you.
Keep It Clutter-Free
This is one principle that works for the entire home and there is no exception here. It would be most ideal to separate your closet area by creating a walk-in closet, leaving a clear space for the bed and lounging area. However, not everyone may have access to a lot of space. If you do not have enough space to have an exclusive walk-in closet that encloses all the storage, opt for under-the-bed storage, sleek and simple wardrobes, and closed storage to make the space look clean and invoke a sense of calm. Clutter can often lead to restlessness and anxiety, so let go of this if you truly wish to create a space that is relaxing.
Lighting and Ventilation
While natural lighting and ventilation are a must for every part of the home, one has to modulate the external influences in this particular space. You might be a late riser, and would want to keep the outside noise and natural light at bay – in such situations it would be clever to use multiple layers of curtains. Use the block-out curtains to make your room cosier and more comfortable. You should also add a layer of sheer curtains to bring in light during the day, ensuring that your room soaks up the goodness of the sun.
Likewise, when it comes to artificial ventilation too, special care must be taken to install the right fixtures. If you have a bedroom that is large enough to accommodate a study area, lounging area, and a sleeping area- provide ambient lighting in the sleeping and lounging area with the use of night lamps, hanging lamps, floor-mounted lights, etc. While the study and dressing area should have more functional lighting suited for dressing up and reading, working.
The Right Palette
There has been a definite rise in the use of formal colours like greys and shades of green. Some colours might not be suited for bedrooms, so pick a colour palette that will help you relax and soothe your mind after a long, tiring day. If you are someone who enjoys minimalistic colours and designs, opt for a simple and neutral palette and add a pop of colour in the upholstery. This trick never fails to make the space more inviting and relaxing without necessarily being over the top or garish.
