Tips for a Minimalist Bedroom Design

Posted on December 13, 2017 in Uncategorized

Minimalistic interior design style is getting more popular today. Minimalism means simple and basic, without utilizing a lot of ornaments or heavy details. And because of this, it creates a roomy and ‘clean’ atmosphere. This style can also be applied in bedroom design. Nowadays finding a spacious house with roomy bedrooms is not easy because big houses are usually very expensive. If you have a small bedroom, you can save space with minimalist beds and other minimalist furniture. In addition to that, you can paint your room with bright colors to give it an air of spaciousness.

A minimalist bed does not have to be uncomfortable. When buying a bed, you have to select the mattress first. A good mattress for a good quality sleep should support your body and not cause back pain or stiff neck when you wake up in the morning. However, different people prefer different types of mattresses. Some people prefer memory foam mattresses, while others prefer latex ones. There are many types of mattresses available, such as memory foam or visco elastic, latex, spring, waterbed, air chamber, and intelli-gel mattresses. For more comfort, you can cover your mattress with your favorite mattress topper. The different types of toppers available are made from polyester, wool, down or goose feathers, memory foam, latex, and cotton fiber.

Platform beds are ideal for a minimalist bedroom design. You should choose a platform with a simple and clean design. The most common material used for making bed platforms is wood, but metal, concrete and bamboo can be used as well. They can also be upholstered for a more stylish look. A minimalist bed usually has short legs or no legs at all. This is intended to create the illusion of a higher ceiling, hence more space. For a more minimalist approach, some people even shun the idea of using bed frames or platforms. Instead, they put their mattress directly on the floor.

People often associate minimalism with boring colors such as white, black or grey. In fact, there is nothing wrong with using your favorite colors. But to keep things simple, you should avoid patterns or motifs. Top your bed with solid colored blanket, bed sheet and pillow cases. Coordinate the colors to create harmony.

For a minimalist bedroom design, you should only use the stuff that you need. Avoid cluttering your room with unnecessary knick knacks. Unnecessary clutter will only make your room messy and uncomfortable. Use only necessary furniture such as a wardrobe and a vanity. Do not use nightstands if you do not need them. Make sure you choose furniture pieces with simple and compact design to suit the theme of the bedroom.

The Importance of Bedroom Design in a Home Decoration Project.

Posted on December 8, 2017 in Uncategorized

A home is a place where we live, spend most of our lives,
with family members and our loved ones.

A bedroom design project includes a careful study of the
surrounding of the entire home. When an architect plans
a home, he takes into consideration many parameters for
the location of various spaces.

Lets take an example of the bedroom itself.

While deciding the location of the bedroom, an architect
might go through the following checklist.

* North direction

* Path of the sun.

* Surrounding landscapes.

* Presence of other natural elements such as lake, flowing

river, seashore, etc.. which could be visible through

bedroom window.

* Wind direction.

* Man made other features, such as tall buildings, roads, etc..

These external factors directly affect the interior of a
bedroom. This is true with any space and not only bedroom.

For example the amount of sunlight entering in a room will
affect the dimensions of the window openings, which will
in turn affect the available space inside the room for

The overall atmospheric conditions outside, will affect the
type of finishes and materials used for furnishings, linen,
flooring, etc.. A bedroom on seashore will have a different
set of weather conditions to deal with than a room on a
hill slope with heavy snowfall.

That’s why the interior design of any living habitual space
is an exact replica of what’s happening outside. Everything
is so dynamic. A slight change in the outside world can
affect the appearance of the home altogether.

If you are trying to design your own space then this article
might help to start thinking on the concept level.

With these words I end this article and hope it was useful.
