Bedroom / June 26, 2018 /
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.
Adapting a Scandinavian style is not just about aesthetics alone, and it also gives an ergonomic advantage for those with a small bedroom. If you are short on space, the inherent simplicity of the Nordic style, its use of a neutral color palette with white being the predominant color, and the shunning of unnecessary accessories and decor are indeed big advantages! Yet, because of the wide use of push rugs, wooden bedside tables and ample natural ventilation, your small bedroom will neither seem sterile nor dreary.
