 bedroom layout

The bedroom is the most intimate room in the entire apartment, so the presence of outsiders in the area is highly undesirable. The problem is familiar to a separate bedroom, probably every second family, and in each case this issue is solved differently. But there are general rules of planning. After all, in the bedroom more often than not only sleep, but also to read, work, relax, or iron clothes. Therefore, it is important to correctly lay the bedroom according to their own way of life and habits. Even if it seems that the bedroom does not have a place in the apartment, it is better to combine the living room with a kitchen, but at the same time to allocate a separate room for sleeping.

What, where, where?

When planning the location of the bedroom, it is important to try to make it was as far away from the entrance and bordered on the living room and kitchen. Bedroom proportions should be close to the square longer than a rectangle, but if you can not reach it because of the characteristics of the apartment, should not get upset. Change the space you can, if you use all sorts of niches, or to give the room a dressing room. Podium or good location bed at an angle to the walls also can change the perception of the proportions of your bedroom.

When planning a bedroom environment the most important task is the correct positioning of the bed. Under the rules of the bed plan must be placed in such a way that it does not interfere with the movement of the room. You can place the bed headboard to the wall, while leaving the sides of the aisles, preferably not too narrow. This would be very nice if the bed is viewed by the bedroom door. If this is not possible, then the mirror will. It must be set so that you can see incoming.

Nowadays plastic windows drafts problem disappeared by itself. But experts still do not recommend placing the bed near the window. In that case it will be above the headboard, a sleeping man is psychologically uncomfortable, because it will feel a sense of insecurity. If you place the bed in front of the window, in the morning rays of the sun will beat a sleeping man in the face (if the room is located on the east), which is also not palatable.

In small apartments to beat the space can be if we apply reception asymmetry. For this purpose the bed must be positioned diagonally. Worthy subject of the situation in this case may be a triangular closet and desk in the headboard, which can serve as a table lamp or a cupboard for storage of linen.

In a small room the principle of minimalism have very handy, because in this case the bedroom will look larger than it is. Visually help relieve built-in dressing room and a separate closet. If they do not have any place to store the things you can use the bed-podium equipped with roomy drawers.

  Just a bedroom or ...?

Very often, one room has two main functions. For example, it combines a bed and workplace, or near the bed adjacent the parent's bed baby. A feature of the bedroom layout in this case will be its competent zoning. If you are unable to raise the dead stationary construction of plasterboard, it is possible to replace the system of translucent sliding walls stained or frosted glass.

It would be easy, light, and most importantly, aesthetically attractive solution. If you want to retain the ability to vary, you can use portable folding screens, which can be easily rearranged to another place. Instead of partitioning can also be applied a conventional rack.

Make it visually more spacious, you can almost any bedroom. You can use a mirror that due to multiple reflections increase the visual footage of the room. At the same time they should not have in the legs or on the side bed, and best of all in her pillow. The construction of the ceiling in the bedroom is not recommended to complicate many levels and complex patterns. The simpler form of the ceiling, the easier it will be to relax and sleep in it. In some cases, you can opt out of the ceiling to smooth and even.

Create a harmonious and cozy atmosphere and can contribute to the observance of correct proportions in the space of the room. For example, high ceilings can be adjusted by the suspended ceiling of plasterboard. Planning a large bedroom in the presence of a low ceiling can greatly benefit if beat it with a multi-tiered ceiling structures.

A huge role also played by color, light and texture selected finishing materials. In a small bedroom should not be any relief plaster, dark colors and intricate designs of the ceiling. To the interior the feeling of lightness and airiness, you need to fill it with light pastel shades or gray-blue palette.

  Let there be light!

With the help of well-designed lighting in the bedroom, you can create not only a cozy and comfortable atmosphere, but also to get energy boost at the right time. Experts recommend to be used as a central light source traditional chandelier or ceiling. Lighting norms for each square meter of living space is 20 watts of artificial light. Therefore it is necessary to observe a measure in light bedroom. For example, to get an additional source of light for reading, it will be enough just to place on the nightstand or desk lamp curtain daylight.

In order to diversify the lighting scenarios in the bedroom can be placed around the perimeter of the room, or spotlighting set at the corners of her beautiful light fixtures, for example, with a wide canopy, guiding light up. Light striking the ceiling will gradually dissipate, thereby creating a situation of intimacy in the bedroom and a comfortable soft lighting. As an additional highlight, you can use zonal lighting, for example, directional light to illuminate paintings.

An original and innovative solution for the intimate lighting can be a fluorescent lamp built into the bottom of the hanging bed. In support of them, you can install the same lamp in the ceiling cornices of plasterboard. Currently especially popular as wall niches with built-in lighting. They are very functional, since replaced by closed cabinets with shelves, at the same time play the role of bedside lamps, if they are located on the sides of the bed.

Size matters. And the color?

Making bedrooms impossible without competent selection of colors. It is important to take into account both the direction of light, which are brought to the window of the room, and the temperament of the master bedroom. For example, impulsive people are contraindicated bright and saturated colors, which are more suitable for olive or beige calm tones. For the phlegmatic personality, in contrast, require more intense color to tone up their already relaxed temperament.

Not everyone knows that deep blue also refers to the active and "disturbing" colors. Despite the fact that outwardly he seems calm and comfortable, it can cause internal tension, which can interfere with proper rest and relaxation. For registration of the bedrooms are commonly used and soothing neutral shades such as pearl - gray, light pink or light blue. They combine well with the color of natural wood in the bedroom decor. So beloved by women light pink tint may not appeal to the male sex, better to use a range of brown and beige, orange or calm.

Orientation also affects the choice of color in the bedroom. If the window areas facing north, the wall is better to use a peach or pink-beige warm colors. For bedrooms, facing south, should be used for the walls colder colors such as gray or blue.
