The item that distinguishes this room from all other space and the most important thing about the room: the bed. But which bed do you choose?

Window Decoration

A bedroom must be dark in the night. When designing your bedroom you really have to take this into account. Choose good window decoration.

If you are going to furnish your bedroom there is other furniture to consider besides your bed. We also want to be able to store our clothes and it is useful to have a bedside table next to our bed for storing our books or our mobile. You should take this into account when designing your bedroom. Where do we put the wardrobe? How big should the wardrobe be? What is the layout going to be? Do we need a lot of drawers or more hanging options in our wardrobe?

And is there a requirement for other furniture like a make-up table or chest of drawers and do we have enough room left for these? The bedroom simply needs storage space. Another storage option to consider is draws built into the bed. The bedroom must be tidy because a tidy house gives peace. Nobody wants to sleep in a room full of junk.

Bedroom Lighting

Often a lighting plan is only designed for the living room. We should however do the same for the bedroom. Light has several functions in the bedroom. For example it is nice to be able to dim the light by the bed so that your partner can sleep while you read your book. And it is important to have good light by the mirror. So you have to think carefully about the lighting for your bedroom.
