A bedroom is a place to sleep, but it can be so much more than that. While the bed itself is, of course, important, the other decor choices in the room are as well. In this section of the blog, I share my years of experiences and research. I will help you find the right beds, bedding, mattresses, pillows, curtains, chairs, wardrobes and other furniture. I will help you to make sense of the choices, so that you can create the best bedrooms for both adults and children.
What Is Bedroom Design?
Bedroom design is about more than what you hang on the wall or whether your bedspread matches your curtains. Good design takes the whole room into consideration. It includes everything from the quality of the mattress, to the overall look and feel of the room. A design plan can incorporate elements of different philosophies, such as feng shui, or it can be customized to reflect your personality. What it comes down to is comfort. While your bed should be physically comfortable, it is also important that you feel comfortable in the space. The look, feel, smell, and even the monetary cost of your room should make you feel at ease. Good interior design aspires to create that sense of comfort.
Why Is Bedroom Design Important?
Experts recommend eight hours of sleep per night. This means that one third of each day should be spent in bed. When all of the elements of your room come together to create a perfect, relaxing atmosphere, you can fall asleep faster, and sleep deeper. Everything from the quality of your mattress to the softness of your bedding to the balanced feeling that comes from perfectly-chosen design elements affects the quality of your sleep which, in turn, affects the quality of your waking life.
A bedroom, however, can be used for so much more than sleeping. Breakfast in bed is, after all, one of life’s greatest pleasures. A well-designed room invites you to spend time in it. A bedroom can be a private place, used to steal a few relaxing moments on your own. It can be turned into an office or work space. It can be a romantic getaway, far more intimate than any hotel.
Regardless of your budget or the size of your room, you can design a bedroom that suits you and your lifestyle. By following my suggestions, you will be able to save money and time, find the highest-quality products and, ultimately, make a better bedroom.
