Bedroom / June 26, 2018 /
Your design must contain all the spaces and functions required for your general bedroom needs: a bed, a place to store and organize clothing, light sources (e.g. natural and artificial), and an entrance to the bedroom. The challenge is to consider and re-conceptualize these basic elements to rethink designs for new sleeping spaces, storage, organizing structures and systems for books, and other materials, access to outdoor spaces, a space to study, and a space to relax. Is this an active space, or a tranquil space?
Limit stimulation. A crowded and messy childs bedroom is highly disruptive to sleep patterns—even with the lights off. Plain and simple, chaos causes sensory overload which leads to anxiety. Keep toys, clothes, and other supplies in covered boxes, baskets, or cupboards to avoid overstimulation caused by clutter. Plus, enforcing a screen-free-bedroom rule will eliminate that potential distraction as well as brain-stimulating blue light emissions.
