As the name suggests, a Ďbedroomí is a place meant for sleeping. It is a haven for relaxation, a restful and soothing place and our very own personal little space within our home, where we can be our true selves without any inhibitions. It is a room where we can simply relax and spend some quiet time alone. Unlike olden times, when bedrooms were actually used only for sleeping, today, we use them for a variety of other things like resting, studying, watching television, listening to music, chit chatting, eating our meals, etc., apart from sleeping. A bedroom essentially is made up on a bed and some other furniture. It is usually designed depending on who the room belongs to, as every bedroom is very special and unique to its occupants. While designing an ideal bedroom a thorough knowledge of its userís tastes, preferences, needs, lifestyles, thoughts, ideas and background is very important.
Like every other room, a bedroom also has a focal point as this determines the placement of furniture. The focal point in a bedroom can be the bed, for obvious reasons, a television set, a beautiful view, a french window or anything else its user finds charming. Usually the bed is the focal point of any room as it is generally the biggest piece of furniture there and need maximum space. The kind of bed placed in a room is directly related to the number of its occupants. For example, if a room belongs to an individual, a single bed would suffice, whereas, if itís being shared, a double bed - regular, queen size or king size would be needed. After placing the bed, other furniture like the cupboards, dressing table, chairs, tables etc. can be arranged. The rest of the furniture being placed in a bedroom depends on the requirement of the roomís user. For instance, if the room belongs to a school or college going student, a study table should definitely be a part of the room, whereas, if it belongs to an elderly person or couple, comfortable chairs or rocking chairs, are a good option. Storage needs also determine the kind and size of a roomís furniture. Once the furniture has been arranged, the left over space can be accordingly planned for optimal utilization.
The color also plays an extremely important role in doing up the interiors of a bedroom as they define its underlying beauty. The color of the walls should always be the perfect background for the furniture and upholstery of the room. While it has obviously been a matter of personal choice, colors can be selected keeping in mind the age, gender and general liking on the person. For example, if the room is about a little girl, pink is a good option, whereas, if itís about a little boy, blue is generally a common choice. In case of teenage children, bright colors like red, yellow, orange, green, purple etc. are most famous, whereas, for adults, generally soft and gentle colors like ivory, beige, off white etc. are popularly used.
Curtains are one of the most amazing things one can use to transform the look of any room. They are like the roomís Ďmakeover specialistí and can make a room go from dull, boring, simple and ordinary to attractive, classy, stylish and modern. They are available in unlimited colors, designs and fabrics in the market to suit every buyerís requirements and tastes. However, the kind of curtains we put up in a bedroom entirely depends on the mood we want to create. While curtains in simple patterns are a good choice for an elderly persons bedroom, cartoon character curtains are a must have in a kid's room. Also light and flowing fabrics are very good for summers as they create an airy sort of feel, whereas, dark and heavy ones are ideal for winters as they keep a place warm and cozy.
