A bedroom is generally a person’s favourite room. It is a place just for yourself. Where you can wind down after a long day and just relax. It is also the room which would be most personalized to your tastes in the house.
Considering the above, it is important that when you design your bedroom, you pay heed to a few things.
Adequate ventilation is important
There are cases where sometimes bedrooms can smell musty even when a window is always left open.
One of the reasons behind this is that the window does not allow enough ventilation into the room. Maybe it is too small or maybe the window faces another wall thereby blocking the flow of air. It I important when designing a bedroom that it has enough ventilation to ensure that the air you breath is fresh and not stale. Adequate ventilation is very important if you live in an area that is prone to seeing very warm summers, or if you live in a tropical area where summer would be longer. It allows your bedroom to be cooler and less stuffy. Thus helping you relax.
Even in areas prone to cold winters there should be some mechanism to allow air to still circulate. You could have a chimney that allows air to come in when the fire in the fireplace is not lit. Or you could always open a window for a few minutes to allow the damp air out and let the fresh air in.
Therefore it important you have a good ventilation system in your house, be it vents or just large windows.
Have a theme or a colour palette.
Decide on a theme or a colour palette you would like to use in your room. They could make the room exciting and interesting. If you go ahead with a theme then remember that everything or at least most of the things in your room should match the theme. From the doona cover to the Clock, make it all themed. If a theme seem like too much. You could always stick to a simple colour palette.
Choose a set of colours, maximum 2 or 3 and then using different shades of the colours design a room. Make one of the three colours a neutral colour to ensure that the designs blend seamlessly and the colours don’t seem too bold or loud. When you have too many colours in a room unless they are used for accent purposes with a neutral colour being the main one, everything would seem too loud and you will find to difficult to relax. So if you want a colour room you could choose a neutral colour say a white or gray and make this the base colour. So go for white walls, a white duvet cover and then include colours in the accents.
