When one thinks of bedroom furniture, the first things that usually pop into one’s mind are the wardrobe and dresser. These two bedroom furniture pieces are often the first pieces of furniture purchased by a homeowner for their bedroom. Both of these pieces of furniture to help make a bedroom functional by providing a place to store clothes and accessories, as well as a place to set up a dressing table or night stand to allow for one’s undies to be hidden. Here are some tips on interior design for bedroom furniture that will help in the organization of the bedroom.
The wardrobe is separated into compartments by sliding doors, a visualizer, or a combination of both. Glass doors separate this spacious wardrobe from the rest of the room, bright and open thanks to the lights integrated under each shelf. There is space for shoes, skirts, undershirts, belts, and has plenty of drawers and small boxes for clothes the owner does not wear. The visualizer is a large mirror with one or two doors depending on the style. These provide a way to see one’s silhouette when dressing while separating the clothes from each other. These also serve as an area for putting accessories on.
The visualizer and wardrobe are both designed to store clothes, but with different purposes. The visualizer is used to create the illusion of a larger room while hiding any flaws or seams of the fitted wardrobes. The wardrobe on the other hand, hides any stored items and provides enough storage space to hold all of the extra items the bedroom might have. The visualizer can also be used for putting accessories on when they are not needed such as hats and scarves.
One of the biggest design mistakes for most people with a new house or even an older one is the improper placement of their wardrobe and closets. Most design professionals would recommend that all wardrobe rooms should be placed so that the majority of the room is in front of a window, so sunlight can flood the room through the windows. This makes it easier to keep track of what is inside each specific box. If you place them too close together, you will only be able to see the legs of the hanging clothing if they happen to get tangled together. You also have to make sure the storage designs are sturdy and can withstand the weight of the loads the clothes may come with.
Other major design mistakes include putting both the closet and wardrobe design too close to each other. A good rule of thumb would be to place a wardrobe at least three feet to the side of the closet door, or the preferred distance between the two. If your bedroom is wide, consider installing reach-in closets so that children can reach the other side of the wardrobe easily. If your bedroom is very narrow, look into putting wardrobe design that includes a walk-in closet. This will give more room to put clothes and other accessories in the closet rooms without needing an entire wall to be used up.
Lighting can also be an issue when it comes to interior bedroom wardrobe designs. Not enough lighting can make it hard for people to see when they are trying to match a particular piece of clothing with a particular pair of shoes. On the other hand, having too much lighting in the bedroom can cause a roomy feeling that can make the room seem dark and spacey. To solve this problem, consider installing interior lighting fixtures such as track lighting, low-voltage lights, or recessed lights around the perimeter of the closets. Having proper lighting also will allow people to see where they are going in the closet, and help them find items easily while running to the other side of the closet.
