Whether accompanied by a partner or not, we should consider our bedroom the one area where we are obliged to please no one but ourselves (the words indulgence and pampering spring to mind). It therefore makes good sense for the best bedroom space and access to dressing and bathroom facilities to be reserved for this purpose.
Everyone has their personal preference when it comes to the choice of bedside table or cupboard. There are, though, some common principles worth considering. First, for convenience, it is best if the unit is approximately the same height as the top of the bed mattress. This will vary, but will most usually be around 50cm/lft 8in.
Make use of existing items in the room. Your kids have a lot of items in their bedrooms. Use these things to design their bedroom and if you are decorating a bedroom with a theme, you will find a lot of stuff which you can use to accessorize your design. Avoid buying new stuffs which could be too much on the budget.
As our lives become ever more frenetic, the haven that comfortable bedroom designs offer becomes more and more inviting - and not just for sleeping. Quiet reading, television viewing (for the programs we want to watch), enjoying a peaceful light supper, letter writing - these are all activities that may be best suited to that special private space.
There are many styles of dressing table, among which the fabric-covered type is a timeless favorite. The most important factor, however, is its positioning so that as much natural light as possible falls upon the face of the person sitting at the dressing table - beneath a window is ideal. If you enjoy the feeling of being cocooned, bed drapes are for you. Whether emanating from a corona, half-tester or full tester, they give a wonderfully secure, enclosed feeling and look extremely attractive into the bargain. Always devote careful thought to the lining of any such bed treatment as that is what will be most often seen by the person lying in bed. A smaller repeat of the face fabric pattern can produce a very pleasing result, as can the use of ticking fabric in a coordinating color.
