Bedroom / June 26, 2018 /
Draw a floorplan of your existing bedroom and include it in this step. Make a list of those features that you really like about how your bedroom looks / functions. Make separate list of all the ways that your current bedroom is not so well designed, too small, the light is poor, the door is in the wrong place, the bathroom is too far away, etc.
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.
