Mistake # 1: Neglecting instead the bed
Before validating the layout of the room, remember to position the bed, preferably away from the door and against a wall. To be sure of the place, do not hesitate to go in the room, you sit, you imagine lying. The idea is to project into the room, wondering what we want to see or hear.
Mistake # 2: Install a corner desk in the room
Convenient to isolate a little office in the room is loaded psychologically. Papers and bills, current files, archives … create an adverse environment for sleep. As a reminder to our little problems of everyday life, they break this bubble needed a good rest. Unless you have a large room, where two areas are distinct, prefer to install it in an entrance, a hallway or stay.
Good tip: If the office has no place in the room, trying to hide it; for example, in a library or a shallow shelf. The office can also be transformed with the possibility of being opened or closed, depending on the time of day.
Mistake # 3: Wanting a suite at any price
Very popular, the master suite is a room with an attached bathroom and a dressing room. In the pages of decor magazines, they seduce many individuals while it is not always adapted to the configuration of the room. Different schedules, lack of privacy: in use, the suite may also be less convenient than it sounds.
Good tip: From staggered, opt for a room with two doors to the bathroom, dressing room, another room … This suite of rooms is the sleeping area.
Mistake # 4: Get caught up in the mess
Clothes thrown, books and magazines scattered, loose shoes … In the bedroom, storage is an eternal. Poorly organized, the room quickly takes shop air a day of sales when it should just be the barest possible.
Good tip: Note your daily scenario by asking the right questions about your habits. Then determine what you need for better organization: a carrying for clothes, a shoe closet, a nice hamper for dirty clothes, etc. The storage takes place in the bedroom or the bathroom or dressing, depending on your habits.
Creating a bedroom: the 4 rules to know
Draw a major traffic around the bed
Despite imposing a bed by the place it takes, it is necessary to be able to move at will in the room. Free up floor space and avoid unnecessary clutter. The bed is rather to place in the center of the room, your head against a wall. In one corner, the traffic is difficult.
Clothes, books or bed linen are often required in the room. “The opening of 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 room, library …) separated from the sleeping area to create a more intimate room. Everything we use every day is little to place in storage annexes: safe, high cupboard, drawer under the bed … to maximize floor space.
As a bedside, succumb to the headboard “With little depth, it hides many storage and replaces night tables where one tends to take the feet.” Integrated lighting, small niches, photo shelf headboard also lets you customize the room.
Diversify sources of electric light
As in the rest of the house, electric lighting in the bedroom must keep pace according to the density. Have at least two light sources of different intensity modulate the light. 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 is welcome.
Playing with colors tirelessly
The dominant color of the room depends on how we occupy the room, the 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.”
Most often, the soft tones find their place in the room. More conducive to sleep, neutral colors also avoid tiring too quickly. Color can also be found in the bed accessories or clothes with a varied choice. Prefer plain fabrics by focusing on simplicity. We like vitamin shades in summer tones more cocoons in winter.
