How to kickstart a good bedroom design project?
Article by: Shrinivas Vaidya
Any room , in your home , is primarily a space within walls, , floor
, and a ceiling. When the structure or the apartment , gets
constructed, the architect and the structural contractor , has
taken all the care that it is stable and can withstand outside
natural , forces like, earthquakes, heavy winds, rainfalls, etc..
Amongst all other rooms , the bedroom is a space where comfort
levels have to be kept maximum. But the word comfort is a
relative term. The meaning of comfort is not just a sleep of
8 hours. A good sleep inside , a bedroom is a bare minimum
expectation which can not be ignored.
But comfort varies from person to person. For someone it
feels good by just sitting in a rocking chair, , sipping a cup
of coffee and enjoying good view around the house , or for
someone it could be listening to good music or watching night
sky full of stars.
So when it comes to design , any space many aspects come into
consideration. Design , is not just arrangement of furniture, ,
choosing color , schemes, deciding textures/finishes etc..It
has to deal with "feeling good" about the space.
Of course all these factors when used in a unique way, can
turn out to be a great design. , The above mentioned "feel good"
factor comes about by selecting a "theme" based design. ,
When we try to look towards the empty space through a
theme, everything gets a definition and can be dealt upon
Let's see an example.
If I decide to decorate , a bedroom which is empty, first I
will have to decide on a particular style to execute. If it's
my own bedroom then I must know what kind of style best suits
my personality. This choice of style will greatly influence,
the kind of furniture, , color , scheme, finishes I use.
Here I can go for contemporary style/oriental style/country
style. All these have a unique set of parameters right from
the layout of furniture , to what diameter should I use for the
A design , deals with a big view starting from furniture , layout
and goes in-depth, deciding with each and every minute details
of linen. All these affect the final expression, which is
required for "feeling good". All these detailing will change
, the moment to shift from your theme/style.
That's why by fragmenting the entire design , process into theme
options can make the process easier and gives a direction to
start the execution of any project.
If you are designing for someone else, it's a good idea to
first know your client's likes and dislikes. I mean his
personality, his hobbies, his job profile, etc... Remember
that HE is going to use this room, , it's his baby.
Of course once you start with a theme, it normally happens
that you will get more richer and creative ideas during
primary sketching process.
I hope this article was helpful.
