An Ideal Bedroom

September 09, 2009 By: admin Category: bedroom

In special terminology bedroom is referred to as ‘the intimate space’, i.e. the place that is not intended for others’ glances. However, the bedroom in a modern apartment-studio can be only conditionally separated from other zones by light constructive elements: arches, columns, sliding partitions, screens, etc.

According to the tradition, bedroom is isolated and is placed in one of the far and noiseless parts of the apartment, but at will one can also arrange here a workplace that won’t allow the premises to ‘stand idle’ in the daytime, or the drawing-room.

In the apartment with high ceilings one can make the entresol and place the bed on the second level. As a result, there will appear some additional space for arranging workplace or cloakroom. (By the way, the place to store clothes is one of the main elements of bedroom. Even if it is possible to arrange a separate cloakroom, it would better place it adjacent to the bedroom. A small cloakroom can be separated from the bedroom by the rigid, but light mobile partitions that are commonly used for organizing of fitted cupboards).

One of the original decisions is the podium-case. For this the dais is built in the room and the bed is mounted inside of it. Boxes for bedclothes are placed on the sides. In the case of need the bed easy moves out on rollers.

The podium area can be used as cabinet (the workplace), library, etc. Such planning of the room empties space for area of recreation (drawing-room).

Not less original is the bedroom in the ‘Eastern’ style.

In this case the bed is replaced by the mattress, which, with a help of the carpet, is transferred into the couch with many pillows, when it is necessary to transfer the room into the drawing-room.

Convenient and functional is the version of the bed-transformer that can be risen vertically and hidden, upon necessity, in special fitted cupboard.

Finally, one can make zoning with the help of partitions (for example, in the form of the fitted cupboard), sliding doors, but better do with through rack structure or screen. They visually separate one zone from another, do not prevent the access of the light and air and create the feeling of the open space. Additionally you get shelves for books, files or your favorite collection.

When you plan bedroom, first of all, you ought to think about the location of the bed.

Usually the head of the bed is put right against to one of the walls. But if you consider it important to orient the resting body along the east-west axis, the bed can be placed freely relatively to walls.

If the bedroom sizes permit, a wide bed can be placed far from walls. In such a way you can create the peculiar ‘sleepy island’, particularly if the bed is round. The special atmosphere for sleep can be created by the canopy. It is a weighty construction that consists of the massive framework, awning and bed curtains. The root of such decision is in our subconsciousness that requires protected, even symbolically, place for sleep.

One often uses such method as rising of the place for sleep to the ‘podium’. Its construction looks like the podium, even sometimes with several steps. The bulk paddy mattress is freely put on it.

The ingenious decorative method is the location of the bed in the niche that can be marked out by the contrasting to the whole interior decorating.

It will be nice, if it is possible to design the bedroom with a separate bath that is intended only for owners of the bedroom. Then not only sanitary engineering, but also the dressing table with autonomous illuminated adjustable mirrors will be placed there.

The stylistic decision of the bedroom can be quite different from other rooms.
Solemnity and pathos, which are relevant for the guest segment of the house, are extra here, the atmosphere of personal quarters is to promote relaxation and distraction from everyday concerns, everything should tune you in for rest.

The character of your bedroom, that psychological mood that it causes, greatly depends on the finishing agents, and remarkably, not only their decorative, but also their practical qualities shape the enveloping atmosphere. Generally, people strive to use noise-insulating materials for bedrooms. It is preferable that walls are textural and noise-absorbing. A wonderful material for finishing of the walls is wallpapers. It is better if the surface does not yield blinks, because this is rather tiresome.

Bedroom Decor And Bedding

May 02, 2009 By: admin Category: bedroom

Designing the space in your home can be some of the most rewarding work that you can undertake. Your decor can reflect your spirit and style, and done correctly, it can speak to your very soul.

The most intimate space, and perhaps the most important, is the bedroom. Unfortunately, it is most often overlooked as it is not regularly seen by visitors to your home. Too often the rooms meant for entertaining guests take precedence over those nurturing private havens.

Choosing the theme of the bedroom decor can vary as much as personal style and depend upon the desired effect; calming or stimulating, meditative or invigorating, an intellectual retreat or a sensual hideaway. It is entirely up to you.

Beyond choosing the wall colors and furniture, you have important considerations to make concerning the textiles: rugs, pillows, and bedding. The sumptuousness of these will directly affect the comfort of the room. The luxuriousness of sleeping on fine linens can not be overstated. The bedding is one area that you do not want to skimp on when you are furnishing your own nurturing space.

To properly outfit your bed, you will need a substantial mattress, a mattress pad, sheets, a blanket, a duvet or comforter, and pillows. The pillows’ firmness is entirely a matter of personal preference, but be sure they are of adequate number. The sheets, blankets, and duvet all provide an opportunity to contribute to the overall decor of the room, as well as to your physical comfort.

Some bedrooms’ decor are built around a fabulous comforter’s pattern and/or colors, while others leave the bed linens to play the role of accent pieces in the scheme. There is no right or wrong answer here, but be sure that you do not fall into the trap of purchasing something for its looks alone. These pieces are to be functional as well. Too often people find themselves sleeping, or attempting to sleep, on inferior quality. Your days depend on your nights’ rest – splurge on fine bed linens.

Remember that other than your comfort and peace of mind, there really are no rules when it comes to creating your private sanctuary. Make it your own.
