Sometimes when you walk into a bedroom, it just feels right. It looks comfortable, but not cluttered. The design elements flow together with form and function. It’s not easy creating the perfect bedroom design. In most cases, the simpler the better, though you have to work to strike the right balance between modern minimalism and classic comfort. After all, this is a room where you spend a third of your time.
Here are some bedroom design tips from Progressive Builders:
1. Simplify the Circulation
You can save on space and improve the overall flow of the room by keeping the circulation simple. Don’t make it hard to get around the bed or other furniture in the room. Have you ever noticed that most hotel rooms are laid out similarly? That’s because the design has proven over time to be the most comfortable and functional option for the shape of a typical hotel room.
2. Consider Your Privacy
If you share your home with roommates or family, you will want to maximize the privacy in the bedroom. It’s nice to be able to leave your door open when you can, so think about the angles and positioning of the bed to ensure you get the privacy you desire.
3. Enjoy the View
If you have a nice view from the bedroom window, make the most of it and use it to brighten up the room naturally. If you don’t have much of a view or have limited window space, do what you can to bring natural light in and make the room feel as peaceful and comfortable as possible. Adding a set of French doors on a downstairs bedroom or a slider and a balcony for an upper-level room are other great ways to bring the outdoors in.
4. Lay Out the Furniture Efficiently
Most floor plans are designed with a specific bed placement in mind, but you also want to consider the dressers, chairs, TV, nightstands or even a work desk. Maximize your space and lay out the furniture in a way that is functional, yet stylistic.
5. Plan Carefully
If you are going to redesign your bedroom or do a renovation, don’t just rush into it. Plan it all out carefully and envision how you want the room to look and feel. Then, you can put design ideas in motion to achieve your goals.
Designing the ideal bedroom with both style and function is easier said than done. It can be one of the trickiest rooms in the house, so sometimes it helps to have professional guidance to make sure your vision becomes reality.
