Kids Bedroom Designs

Your kid is a special human being to you and therefore you should ensure that your kids bedroom designs are also that much special. We all adore our kids and love them very much and it is exactly for the same reason that to make them feel special we should always go for the best things; especially their bedroom because it is their own space.

It is their refuge, their hide out and their sleep over place and come to think of it, it is the room where they spend most of their time. Therefore, don’t you think that their bedrooms should be some place where they would be happy to return to after the entire day?

Well, I think that all of you parents out there agree with me one hundred percent and therefore I have come up with the best kids bedroom designs that you can even think of decorating your child’s room with.

The most primary thing that you need to keep in mind when you are designing your kid’s bedroom is that children are perceptive and imaginative. Really young children love to have their day dreams and fantasies and therefore the design of their room should be such that it inspires them. Inspiration is a big thing for a child because in their formative years if you can plant a tree right then their roots are always strong.

Next in kids bedroom designs ideas we have the topic of color. Now, this is a critical issue because usually, most parents go berserk when selecting colors for the room. However the best choice would be a primary color, nothing too loud but at the same time not to dark enough. A sky blue or a baby pink color would be really nice on the walls as well as on the eyes of your child.

If your child is say seven or eight then you could involve your child in painting their rooms and putting things in order. That way they would feel more in tune with the entire setting and refurnishing of their bedrooms.

So, use these tips in your kids’ bedroom designs and gift your child a lovely child which will inspire them to dream.

Occasional Guest Bedroom Designs – Tips and Ideas

How To Design Your Own Bedroom

You may think that well thought out bedroom designs can be skipped when it comes to the guest or spare bedroom, but if people are going to be using it (your guests for example) it’s certainly worth putting a little thought and effort into it.

A world-famous hotelier is reputed to commission the decoration of his hotel bedrooms only after the interior designer has produced a mock-up of the proposed scheme and after he, the hotel group president, has slept in the sample room for 2 nights. These are extreme measures for a host to take to ensure the comfort of his guests, but should we do anything less for the enjoyment of our personal visitors?

Multi Use Bedroom Designs

Few households these days can afford to dedicate bedroom space for the exclusive use of a sporadic guest. Space in many houses will simply not permit it and, more often than not, this room will have to double up with some other function. A study or dressing room could probably most easily be converted to serve this additional purpose with the minimum of disruption, or perhaps a little-used dining room might be considered.

Whichever space is selected, take care not to compromise the room’s main purpose to any degree for the sake of the occasional visitor. With clever planning it should be possible to devise a room to take on both roles without difficulty.

Should you ever wish to issue an impromptu invitation for an overnight stay, it is important that the room can be readied quickly – no guests like to think that they are putting a host/hostess to any trouble. The conversion therefore needs to be achieved without major furniture movements or storage adjustments.

Bedroom Interior Design Ideas

Beds, when not in use, can be disguised in a variety of ways:

  • Convertible chair- and sofa-beds are sold in their thousands and are extremely popular, but be aware that some seating comfort may be compromised by the bed mechanism.
  • The fold-away type which emerges, ready-made, from a wall cupboard is easy to erect and is unobtrusive when not in use.
  • A fold-up camp bed is cheap and useful for visiting children, but may not offer sufficient comfort for an adult. There is also the problem of housing the bed when it is not in use.
  • A day bed is for many the most satisfactory solution. When dressed with bolsters during the day, it provides useful seating and can be handsomely draped for decorative impact. Bedding may be contained within drawers beneath the divan or in a separate blanket box or chest.
  • If your need is to provide for two guests, one of the best solutions is a bed with collapsible legs which slips beneath a second bed when not required.

Lighting in this dual-purpose room needs to be carefully thought through if it is to serve both uses adequately. Incorporating free-standing lights such as table lamps and standard lamps will allow you to make swift minor adjustments to your arrangement. Always ensure that there is some form of lighting which can be switched from the bedside.

A wash basin in a guest room is a boon, giving independence to the guest and relieving pressure on a family bathroom. A nearby radiator could have a temporary rack attached for holding towels and a folding screen might be employed to hide the basin when it’s not in use.

If the dual role of the room is to be disguised, good storage will be needed. A desk in a study might house stationery, and when the room is required as a bedroom, this could be covered with a full length cloth and a mirror placed on top for use as a dressing table.

Where there is no room for a wardrobe, a coat stand or hooks on the back of a door should suffice for the short stayer. Somewhere will be needed to set down a suitcase. A folding luggage rack, painted to co-ordinate with your scheme and crossed with pretty braid, is an ideal solution.

How to Use Wall Finishes in a Bedroom Design Project

Dear friends, any interior space is composed of some primary
architectural elements such as walls, floor and ceiling.
Depending upon the type of structural framework, the
construction method would change.

We always see experience and perceive any interior space
in elevation. This means that walls are the first things of
any structure that create an impact on our mind. The quality
and volume formed because of the walls define an architectural
structure.

When we enter a building, what we primarily and dominantly
perceive are walls. Let’s see how walls can be used as an
excellent element in a bedroom design project.

1) Exposed Brick walls.

In order to use these kind of walls it is necessary to preplan the
interior design schedule. Normally if a brick wall is to
be kept exposed (without plaster), it is built with high quality
bricks which are machine cut for high quality and accuracy.

Since bricks have their own color and texture, this option can
be used to create a color contrast by keeping only one wall
exposed and other with a contrasting color. This can add some
interest in the bedroom.

2) Exposed plaster walls.

An exposed plaster wall is a wall which has not been painted.

These kind of walls are very rarely used in interiors. Since
the plaster is a composite material using appropriate qualities
of cement, sand and aggregate, the final material has a dull
color. A dull color on a space like bedroom would express
a kind of depression, hence is not recommended.

But portions of a wall with preplanned design and sketching can
be used in association with exposed brick wall. Design
pattern with partly colored and partly exposed plaster can be a
good idea.

Or a completely exposed plaster wall with a design patter in grooves
can be used effectively.

3) Wall with tile cladding.

Tile cladding is what we see in kitchen above the cooking
platform. Tile cladding is also used in bathrooms and toilets.
These are normally ceramic tiles.

In a bedroom interesting patterns can be created to fake the
exposed brick wall mentioned above. Many excellent patters
can be used just like a jigsaw puzzle.

4) Paintings.

The word painting has two meanings here.

a) A wall with plane colors applied to it. This is done above the
plastered surface of the wall. Two or three coats of the desired
shade of the color and base material are applied.

b)Secondly, instead of using plane colors, the entire wall can
be used as a “canvas” to paint a story or mural. This is a very
good method to paint children bedrooms. Walls can be used as a
storyboard to create interest.

5) Wallpapers.

Applying a wallpaper is an excellent way to quickly change the
look and feel of the bedroom. Depending upon the “theme” of the room
many wallpaper patterns are available.

Wallpapers are very good in large bedrooms. In large bedroom
“emptiness” is a big problem. If there are not enough decorating
elements available, a room might look empty. Here wallpapers can
serve as fillers and quickly add some interest in the room.

6)Textured plaster walls.

These kind of walls need special techniques to create a textured
pattern on walls. Once a texture is applied any shade of
paint can be used.

One of the great thing about these walls is, when sunlight falls on
them, a very interesting play of light and shadows gets created.
Because of the undulations in the surface of the plaster, small
shadows form on the surface of the wall, giving it a visual
quality.

A wall in the bedroom which receives direct sunlight should be
chosen for this purpose.

This article shows you how various options to the existing wall
finishes are possible, that can enhance the quality of the
bedroom interior space.

I hope this article was informative to everyone.
