Bedroom / June 18, 2018 / .
We absolutely love Scandinavian bedrooms that feature a nifty sleigh or platform bed, as this instantly becomes the focal point of the room without trying too hard. You can build on this by adding an exposed brick wall that is painted white, custom bedside pendants, a few black and white posters and an understated nightstand (probably an upcycled piece from an old tree stump) to complete a truly relaxing, nature-centric bedroom design that is distinctly Scandinavian.
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.
Trick the eye with mirrors. Creating the illusion of space with mirrors is a classic trick that works every time. Perfect for smaller bedrooms, a mirrored wall will visually double the space. This one does the job in style, its high position keeping the effect subtle and the antiqued surface looking elegant. Have pieces made to measure. Having custom furniture made for your space can be a very worthwhile investment. This twin bed has been designed to fit under the eaves perfectly, leaving plenty of space in the rest of the room. The built-in drawers and wall-mounted bedside table and light maximize every inch of floor, while a classic transparent chair provides unobtrusive seating.
Although it can oftentimes seem frustrating and challenging, planning a small bedroom can be fun. With the right design tips and techniques, you can turn your snug room into a dreamy retreat. From clever storage solutions to multitasking furniture, these great ideas will breathe new life into your compact scheme.
