Do you want to walk into your bedroom and just feel right? You can easily achieve that by creating a simple design that will function well. It may look simple, but it actually isn’t. You might wonder why? Well, every bedroom has to have a bed in it, and beds are big and bulky and pretty much dictate where everything else will be placed in the room. So, when you are planning a bedroom from scratch or remodeling your old one, you have the control in creating a space that will be both pretty and practical. So, here are some tips that will help you create a bedroom that will be your own piece of heaven.
Easy to Get Around
In order for your bedroom to be functional, you should keep your circulation on one side of the room only. Hotels design all of their bedrooms in this manner because of two reason, it is simple and it works. So, make a good get around plan, and remember that it can be more challenging if they are en suite or if they have balcony doors. When creating a bedroom from scratch, pay attention to the location of the closet and bathroom. If your bedroom has a bathroom or access to a closet, make sure that you have a longer hall.
A Nice View
You will always feel much better if you sleep in a bedroom that has a nice view. Imagine waking up and the first thing you see is a beautiful view out of the window. So, when designing and creating a bedroom of your dreams, make sure that you choose a layout that will focus on the windows. Wouldn’t it be better to wake up to a view of a lake or your landscaped backyard, than to looking at a plain wall?
Wouldn’t it be nice to have the possibility to leave the bedroom door open and still have some privacy? Having this in mind, when creating your bedroom, leave a small foyer in front of the bedroom and in that way you will get make your bedroom more private from the other rooms in your home. Avoid designing a layout where someone can directly look into the bedroom from other more public rooms, like kitchen or family room.
Have an Outdoor Space
This might not be suitable for all climates, but if you live in a warmer place, than this is an amazing idea to implement in your bedroom. Connecting your bedroom with an outdoor space will make your bedroom look bigger and it will receive more natural light. If your bedroom is on the ground floor or maybe on a second story with a nice balcony, just add French doors, and you will be amazed how it will visually increase your space.
When creating a bedroom of your dreams, furniture represent a big part of how it will look and feel at the end. Choose a big bed with a comfortable mattress to spend your nights in, and our friends at The Sleep Judge also recommend putting a topper over your mattress so that you feel like sleeping on a cloud. Next you are going to need night stands, a TV, and perhaps a desk and a chair if you want to do something where you won’t be disturbed. If you aren’t sure how to place your bedroom furniture, work with a designer or an architect so that you implement your furniture in your bedroom circulation.
Lightning and Ventilation
Your bedroom should be in a corner of your home, so that you have windows on two or more sides. This will benefit you a lot, you room will receive natural and soft light and you will easily ventilate it. Take your time, a great design can take a while, so don’t rush through it… if it takes a little more time, it is important that you come up with a functional and efficient plan for your dream bedroom.
Having a great design does not depend on having a space that will be complex and pricey to build. It is only important to create a space that will be functional, cost less and be efficient in maintaining. This is what great design really is.
