3 Swiss

From the position of the bed to smart storage features advice from to arrange a room in which to live and sleep well.

1. Draw a roadway around the bed

Despite imposing a bed by the place it takes, it is necessary to be able to move at will in the room. Free up floor space and avoid unnecessary clutter. The bed is rather to place the center of the room, his head against a wall. In one corner, the traffic is difficult. "It's almost mandatory to have everyone's access to bed to avoid disturbing the other when you get up in the morning"Insists Camille Hermand, interior designer. 

Also keep in mind all the gestures repeated every day in order to better position the bed The path to reach the closet or the light should not be hindered. "Better to have a small room with good circulation that much harm arranged room"Recalls Camille Hermand.

2. Ruser with storage

Clothes, books or bed linen are often needed in the room. "The opening closets on the bed is not very convenient, especially if the schedules of each are not the same"Says Camille Hermand. Ideally, arrange a storage space (dressing room, library ...) separated from the sleeping area to create a more intimate room. Everything is used daily low is to place in storage annexes: safe, closet top drawer under the bed ... to maximize floor space.  

As a bedside succumb to the headboard "With little depth, it hides many storage and replaces night tables where one tends to take the foot". Integrated lighting, small niches, photo shelf headboard also allows you to customize the room.  

3. Diversify sources of electric light

Creating a bedroom: the rules to know

As in the rest of the house, electric lighting in the room should keep pace with the population. Have at least two light sources of different intensity modulates the light at will. Upon entering the room or dressing, for example, prefer a light source generally as spots on the ceiling or a floor lamp. At bedtime or during playback, a reading lamp or a table lamp are welcome. 

Avoid ceiling lights or chandeliers that give the wrong impression to have something ready to fall on us. "convenience, consider placing lamps or switches so that they do not need to get up, advises Camille Hermand. Ideally, each side of the bed" 

4. Orienting the chamber as viewed

A great opening to the outside can be a starting point to arrange the room. "When you are in bed, it's always nice to have a nice view"Admits Camille Hermand. A bit of greenery or a patch of sky, a clear window also bathes the room in natural light. Warning, beware of the opposite, quite common in cities. The room is one of the most intimate parts, it needs to be protected from prying eyes. A sheer, adhesive film or blinds create a protected place. 

With or without vis-à-vis, dress windows with curtains softens the room and gives a cozy atmosphere. If you are prone to early mornings because of the natural light, opt for a blackout fabric to immerse the room in the dark.  

5. Playing with colors tirelessly

The dominant color of the room depends on how one occupies the room, the pace. "More time you spend in the room, the more you want clarity, says Camille Hermand. With little time and a room where one goes to sleep, dark colors are another alternative." 

Most often, the soft tones find their place in the room. More conducive to sleep, neutral colors also avoid tiring too quickly. "If you want a little color in the room, focus on one wall: the back to bed, advises Camille Hermand. It creates a decorative side without interpellate us once extended." 

Color can also be found in the bed accessories or clothes with a varied choice. Prefer plain fabrics by focusing on simplicity. We like vitamin shades in summer tones more cocoons in winter.
