The bedroom is usually a smaller room which can be seen in its entirety with just one glance, for this reason it is important
- The furniture should have uniformity of colour and texture. Any furniture piece can be used differently to break the monotony but it should carry the same style.
- The essential function of the bed is to provide a surface which is neither too hard nor too soft for the back and body to response in the correct position.
- Choosing the right mattress is also complicated as there are variety of options available like
- Foam mattress
- Latex mattress
- Spring mattress
- Wool mattress
- Anti-allergy mattress
- Summer mattress
- Winter mattress
- Wardrobes and beds are usually combined in the same type of material, though depending upon the design ideas, but they are should be incorporated to make the most of the space available, with comfortable details such as doors which open with just a light touch and the indispensable interior lighting.
Wardrobes are usually from 5’to 7’and even 9’hight and should be 1’6”deep and should have interior steps for adjusting the shelves. If the wardrobe has only two doors it is a good idea to put mirrors on the inside to be able to see oneself from behind as well as the front.
Bedroom lighting should be given special treatment, the tone of the light should be warm and cosy. To achieve this, apart from the ceiling light and the lamps on the night table, a dimmer, can be installed. It is a mechanism which permits a gradual control of intensity of the light, allowing one to choose the exact level desired between the total lighting and the total darkness of the room.
The walls and the lighting should be uniformly done and not be concentrated around the head board.
Coming to the finishing to the walls and the ceiling in the bedroom, one must be aware of the kind of atmosphere desired and how to maintain it. Normally it is recommended to paint the headboard wall a more outstanding colour than the other three which should all be the same relaxing, warm colour.
Carpeted walls are another alternative for the bedroom which are only appropriate for colder, humid climates.
The door frames should be as decorative as the doors, highlighting their design and quality as they are first thing you notice when you are about to enter the bedroom
The colour scheming is not only created by wall/ceiling paints but can also be enhanced by upholstery, curtains, bed sheets.
While decoration, the mixes and matches of coordinating fabrics, in the curtains, bedspreads, pillows, lampshades, headboards, walls should be used at the same time avoiding the over usage
Bedspreads, sheets, blankets, quilts, comforters, curtains, canopies, headboards, lampshades and pillows all enter into the play in the decoration of the bedroom, the only need being the sense of decorative style.
A wooden rug at the end of the bed cab be used as a basic decorative element to add warmth, calm and intimacy to the bedroom.
The choice of a rug depends primarily upon the floor, furniture, walls, upholstery, luminosity, space & décor.
The fabric of the room should be planned carefully as it is the the soul of any room and can change the décor from classic to modern style
