DESIGN / BEDROOM DESIGN
Bedrooms are perhaps the most personal room in the house. We need to feel relaxed and comfortable there, and yet a bedroom can be a personal sanctuary, double as an office or a studio. We have designed our bedrooms with this flexibility in mind. Traditional if necessary, or fashionable as to taste. Many options are available to
answer the need for the flexible bedroom, from pilasters to alcoves, shaped pelmets to matching headboards. We offer a full range of frame door options and also the fashionable feature doors with frosted glass effects. Our bedrooms display door handles which we have carefully chosen as totally complementary to the design effect we have created.
How to Create a Bedroom Design
A bedroom scheme can fit in with the rest of your home or be totally removed.
When you buy or rent a new unfurnished home, each room is like a blank canvas on which you can paint your own personal style. While you may want to maintain a flow through most of the house, bedrooms are an ideal place to create individual designs tailored to the bedroom’s inhabitant. When creating a bedroom design, as in creating most room designs, important factors include placement of furniture and functionality.
Things You’ll Need
Select colors based on whether the bedroom is for a member of your household or to be used as a guest room. While a black bedroom may be the ultimate color for your teenager, it may not seem all that welcoming to house guests. The overall color scheme of your home can also have an effect on your ability to sell the house later, so if you only plan to live in the house for a short period, try to keep the bedroom colors uniform with the rest of the house.
Choose the bed for a bedroom based on the number of people who need to use the room, the room’s size and the comfort level that you desire. Since, ideally, you spend one-third of each day sleeping, consider your bed and its placement first and foremost in your bedroom design. Once you know the size that you want for your bed, put your bed into the room first or mark off the proper dimensions of the bed, such as 60-by-80 inches for a queen or roughly 40-by-75 inches for a twin, on the floor with masking tape, so that you know where the bed will go once you get it.
Add other functional items to the bedroom in the places where they fit best or will be of the most use. Bedside tables, for instance, should be on either side of the bed, while dressers should be placed in areas of the room where the opening of the drawers won’t be impeded. If the idea of selecting matching furniture pieces worries you, you can always buy a bedroom furniture set, which generally includes the bed frame, bedside tables and dressers.
Decorate the furniture and walls however you want. If the room is a guest room, you might consider using a theme to help guide your decorating. If the bedroom is for a member of your household, you can choose a theme that fits your family member or give her free reign over her bedroom decor.
