A place to unwind, let your hair down and put up your feet-all very casual and private activities. For all the time spent and the intimacy it demands a bedroom takes very careful and detailed planning. Not because it is the most personal room in a house but because it is a room WHERE YOU DREAM!!!
As the most private, personalized space in a home, the bed room must necessarily reflect its user’s lifestyle, his practical needs, aesthetic preference and also his dreams, and this is exactly why a bedroom décor poses a challenge to interior designers. To design an ideal bedroom for a client, the designer must get to know the client’s innermost thoughts and ideas, his cultural background and upbringing, his temperaments and his personal conception of a dream bedroom; besides the more tangible factors such as his need in terms of the storage space provided or his taste in terms of the color scheme he would like best. All these diverse factors govern aesthetic decisions, which explain the high degree of subjectivity involved. That is why one can’t really set up aesthetic byelaws; nor can these byelaws find an easy acceptance, if indeed they are made.
The first to do when your home starts feeling cramped is to analyses the way you are using available space. All too often, there is too much unrequired furniture. Even clearing out stacks of old magazines, empty bottles and worn out cloths, will make you realize how much space you have and how incorrectly you have been using it.
The basic principle of not breaking up a room in to little bit is equally applicable to the floor. This is why a room with a wall –to-wall carpet looks much bigger than a one with rugs scattered all over. However, given the Indian climatic conditions, maintaining carpets and rugs requires huge effort; and can only be risked in air-conditioned and dust free environment. The latest option is laminate flooring, and it does seem to have a lot of advantages, while also being aesthetically appealing, and free from the hassles of ordinary wooden flooring a sweeping through several rooms gives a better, more spacious effect.
Lighting in a home must do more than dispel darkness. Most rooms benefit from a combination of functional and decorative lighting – relying on the former to set the scene and the latter to add interest.
