Creating a bedroom: the 5 rules to know
- Draw a major traffic around the bed
Despite a bed instead of imposing it takes, it is necessary to be able to move at will in the room . Free floor space and avoid unnecessary clutter. The bed is rather to place in the center of the room, his head against a wall. In one corner, the traffic is difficult. “It’s almost mandatory to have access to each his bed to avoid disturbing the other when you get up in the morning,” insisted Camille Hermand, interior designer.
Also keep in mind all the gestures repeated every day in order to better position the bed The path to reach the closet or the light should not be hindered. “Better to have a small room with a good flow poorly arranged a large room,” recalls Camille Hermand.
Clothing, books and bed linen are often required in the room. “The opening cupboards on the bed is not very convenient, especially if the schedules of each are not the same,” said Camille Hermand. Ideally, arrange a storage space (dressing, library …) separated from the sleeping area to create a more intimate room. Everything we use in everyday life is just to place in appendices storage: safe, closet tall drawer under the bed … to maximize floor space.
As a bedside succumb to the headboard . “With little depth, it hides plenty of storage space and replaces night tables where one tends to take the feet.” Integrated lighting, small niches, photo shelf headboard also allows you to customize the room.
- Diversify electric light sources
As in the rest of the house, electric lighting in the room must keep pace with the inhabitants. Have at least two light sources of varying intensity modulates light at will. On entering the room or dressing for example, prefer a general source of light like spots on the ceiling or a floor lamp. At bedtime or during playback, a reading lamp or a table lamp are welcome.
Avoid overhead lights or chandeliers that give the wrong impression to have something ready to fall on us. “Practical, consider placing lamps or switches so that you do not need to get up, Camille advises Hermand. Ideally, each side of the bed”
- Orient the room depending on the view
A great opening to the outside can be a starting point to arrange the room. “When you’re in bed, it’s always nice to have a nice view,” admits Camille Hermand. A little greenery or patch of sky, an open window as the room is bathed in natural light.
Warning, beware of the opposite, quite common in cities. The room is one of the most intimate parts, it needs to be protected from prying eyes. A curtain, an adhesive film or blinds create a protected place.
The windows with curtains soften the room and gives it a cozy feel. If you are prone to early mornings because of the natural light, use a cloth obscuring to immerse the room in the dark.
- Playing with colors tirelessly
The dominant color of the room depends on how one holds the piece of pace. “The more time you spend in the room, the more you want clarity, says Camille Hermand. With some free time and a room where one goes to sleep, dark colors are another alternative.”
In most cases, soft tones find their place in the room. More favorable to sleep, neutral colors also avoid getting tired too quickly. “If you want a little color in the room, focus on one wall: the back to bed, advises Camille Hermand It creates a decorative side without interpellate us once extended..”
Color can also be found in the accessories or bed linen with a varied choice. Prefer plain fabrics by focusing on simplicity. We like vitamin shades in summer tones more cocoons in winter.
