Furniture, its correct arrangement has always been the final chord in the design of an apartment or a separate room. Therefore, the approach must be appropriate. The result will depend entirely on you, how well you can plan, think out and arrange the furniture. But to get a good plan working, you will need some knowledge of the rules of furniture for every room and style of the interior.
Zoning of the sleeping space: sleeping zone
Before proceeding to the arrangement of furniture in the sleeping room, you should solve the main issue of this room: where the bed should be located. This is a very important moment in bedroom furnishing, as your strong and sweet sleep and your health largely depend on it.
The place is considered right if:
- there is no hanging lamp or a large chandelier above the bed in the bedroom – a direct threat to your healthy sleep
- optimally convenient location of wall lights, sockets, switches to use them in the evening and at night
- bed is not opposite the doorway
- the headboard of the bed is against the wall
- installation in a corner of the bedroom is possible as a perfectly acceptable option
- bed in harmony with the rest of the furniture: bedside tables and all that is put on them are at arm’s length
