After considering all these things, locate the best position for the bed. It should be against a solid wall. There should be enough space on both sides (at least two feet) to get on and off the bed comfortably.

The rest of the furniture pieces can be positioned as per the space available. Plan enough space around the wardrobe, the dresser and the chest of drawers. Ensure that these are easily accessible and usable.

If you have sufficient space, it is desirable to have some comfortable seating in your bedroom. It could be in the form of a sofa, settee or just a single relaxing chair near the window.

The furniture should be selected in accordance with the overall decor of the room. The material, color, texture and pattern on the furniture should harmonize with different decor elements.

The shape and size of the chosen furniture should be in proportion to the size and volume of the room.

How To Treat The Windows!

Privacy is a major concern in Indian bedroom designs. A two-layered treatment, such as sheers combined with a blackout curtain, is very effective in bedrooms.

Use these window treatment ideas for your bedroom -

  • If the bedroom is smaller in size, use a plain light-colored fabric.
  • Use heavy, tightly woven fabrics to block natural light completely. Or use special blackout clothes.
  • The curtain or blind should be big enough to overlap the edges of the window frame.
  • If the ceiling is low, using floor length curtains will make it appear higher.
  • While choosing fabric for the curtains, harmonize with other soft furnishing elements like bedding sets.
