A bedroom is a place where we go to unwind and relax away from all the demands that modern life puts upon us. Therefore when looking at a bedroom interior design should take time to careful plan just what you want in order to achieve a tranquil and peaceful haven away from modern living. Remember a bedroom is the most personal room to you in your home as it is a room where you can relax and dream.
Beds, when not in use, can be disguised in a variety of ways:
Convertible chair- and sofa-beds are sold in their thousands and are extremely popular, but be aware that some seating comfort may be compromised by the bed mechanism.
The fold-away type which emerges, ready-made, from a wall cupboard is easy to erect and is unobtrusive when not in use.
A fold-up camp bed is cheap and useful for visiting children, but may not offer sufficient comfort for an adult. There is also the problem of housing the bed when it is not in use.
A day bed is for many the most satisfactory solution. When dressed with bolsters during the day, it provides useful seating and can be handsomely draped for decorative impact. Bedding may be contained within drawers beneath the divan or in a separate blanket box or chest.
If your need is to provide for two guests, one of the best solutions is a bed with collapsible legs which slips beneath a second bed when not required.
Lighting in this dual-purpose room needs to be carefully thought through if it is to serve both uses adequately. Incorporating free-standing lights such as table lamps and standard lamps will allow you to make swift minor adjustments to your arrangement. Always ensure that there is some form of lighting which can be switched from the bedside.
A wash basin in a guest room is a boon, giving independence to the guest and relieving pressure on a family bathroom। A nearby radiator could have a temporary rack attached for holding towels and a folding screen might be employed to hide the basin when it's not in use.
