Design Your Own Bedroom
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.
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.
At last the benefits of self-containment have been realized. We expect to pay a premium for a hotel suite, so why not plan permanent accommodation on similar lines, with areas set aside for hobbies, relaxing, dressing, bathing and of course sleeping?
