Bedroom / June 26, 2018 /
It is no secret that we all use our bedrooms for different purposes. The bedroom serves many functions. A bedroom can be a place to sleep, study, entertain friends, share, and relax. How do you combine these vastly different uses into one small space? Bedrooms are typically designed simply, as rectangular rooms that include a window, a closet, and a door. The rest is a blank canvas for the owner to create a space that reflects his or her personality.
Arrange furniture wisely. To help parents remember the elements needed for a healthy and well-balanced bedroom, I developed the acronym SPEL—Sleep, Play, Enjoy, Learn. Every room should be able to provide all these functions. In her system, each activity is given its own distinct zone but the rooms primary functions of relaxation and sleeping are given the most attention. Proper placement of beds, storage, toys, desk, etc. varies from room to room and with the childs age, but one thing is certain, the positioning of these stations and the colors, finishes, lighting, and scents will make a big difference in how the room is perceived and used.
