When considering the decoration of bedrooms , we have to let ourselves be carried away by personal intuition in the decoration , be it minimalist , rustic , modern , classic or romantic .
The way we wake up in the morning can affect us in the development of our entire day, therefore, the environment of our rest at night deserves to take into account a special consideration.
The bedroom out of reach of the domain of others, is usually decorated in a totally personal way.
This space for the night’s rest has to be pleasant, attractive, with austere decoration, in which, it is necessary to choose well the materials, the lighting, the colors, the textures, the furniture and even the bedding.
They are spaces where more and more 3 areas to take into account meet, the bedroom itself, the bathroom and the dressing room.
Get it to become a unique space in the transition from the common space to the intimate and personal space of the owners.
Poorly chosen furniture can become uncomfortable elements in an environment such as the bedroom, so before buying or placing what we have, we have to think that they make us feel comfortable, that they are beautiful and useful.
For example, if an armchair that is comfortable, if a closet is practical and if they are light, better to be able to move them easily.
Furniture with style, personality and good materials, which give you a feeling of calm and well-being.
The bathrooms adjoining the master bedroom is another element to take into account for its comfort and privacy from the rest of the house.
The main bedrooms are often small, they do not have enough space that we would like to have to have certain built-in comforts, such as an armchair, a chest of drawers, a desk or a dressing table.
In these cases, you have to take into account how much can be achieved with decoration and ingenuity: space is as much a matter of feeling of spaciousness as of the precise measurements of a room.
For example, ingenious and imaginative use of mirror placement, successful lighting, multifunctional furniture, such as beds with lower storage, alternative and practical use of a dressing table and work space with a drawer to store work materials …
In other words, making the most of every inch of the space without creating overwhelming spaces but taking advantage of it with intelligence, ingenuity and creativity.

Work spaces in the bedrooms
Increasingly, a corner or work area is being incorporated , which goes from a table of reduced dimensions, which takes up little space, to more generous spaces.

Bedrooms open to the bathroom and dressing room
According to the needs, sliding doors allow the bedroom space to be modulated. In the morning, the dressing room is completely open and facilitates the day’s space when dressing up. The bathroom is kept closed and maintains its independence.
Sliding doors , save up to 1 m2 of usable space. Communication with the dressing room adjoining the bedroom is broader if the doors are embedded in the partition, “disappear” and the spaces are opened.
If the dressing room is open, that is, internally without doors, the space is better used, it is easier to find everything because we have it in view, but we must bear in mind that it forces us to a constant order.

The double room and a good distribution
It is a very important requirement to take into account in all rooms, but particularly in the bedroom, where we want to find tranquility, well-being and rest.
A good distribution will give us the order we need in the bedroom. If there are items that you consider mandatory, store them in closets or stacked boxes to keep clutter hidden.
Taking advantage of the space is essential and we are conditioned to many functions that we want to be carried out in the same room.

As for the furniture, the bed is the central element and movement around it is often difficult, due to auxiliary furniture , such as the chest of drawers, wardrobes or similar.
The bed is the dominant element and your choice will determine how the rest of the room is decorated.
