If you have chosen the best mattress,bedroom optimal temperature and light, but still do not get enough sleep, it's probably the case in the arrangement of the bed. Even in this matter there are rules and prohibitions - read the opinions of our readers and expert advice. Arranging furniture around the world, energy lines and feng shui rules is not for us. We will talk about the location of a bed in accordance with the laws of design, taking into account the convenience, space capabilities, visual characteristics of rooms and their impact on mental and physical condition. You'll see - in a properly located bed it's better to sleep. The basic principles of finding a suitable place, based on psychology, are simple - a person feels comfortable when he sees the front door from a resting place, and feels behind the back a wall. And of course, the bed should be located so that it was easy to approach. Asya Bondareva, interior designer:- It doesn't matter if there is any basis for superstitions - if they bother you, then do not sleep with your feet to the door and do not hang a mirror in front of the bed. The latter is definitely not worth doing - accidentally waking up at night and seeing your reflection is not very pleasant. Better think about other points, that it will be easier to change the bedding if there is at least 60-80 centimeters on both sides of the bed to the wall. And that the curtains are not very convenient to use if there is a headboard of the bed by the window, not to mention the drafts. bondarevadesign.ru Tatiana Yushchenko, interior designer:- An alcove or niche in which you can put the bed - the perfect solution for the bedroom! Such an arrangement always gives a feeling of privacy, intimacy and comfort. If the bed cannot be placed with the headboard against the wall, then create the illusion of support in the form of a partition or screen. Pay attention to the basic rule of ergonomics in the bedroom - place a bed for two with a width of 140 cm or more so that it can be approached from both sides. facebook.com/yushchenko.tatiana We've covered the ideal conditions.And if the size of the room is such that there is only one option for placing a spacious double bed in it? - Our bedroom has only about 11 square meters of area, narrow and connected by one wall - the one opposite the entrance - with a balcony, which we do not plan to attach. So this is a scientific approach or not, but we had only two options - headboard to the right wall or to the left. Even so, you can only walk sideways by the bed to the window. Tatiana, reader In such a situation, the options, indeed,Little. It is doubtful that the owners would be willing to give up the comfortable spacious bed and return to the fold-out sofas. But there is an idea - the lifting bed simply turns into a wardrobe or table during the day, and falls into place at night. It is said that its creator, inventor Murphy, planned to invite a friend of strict rules, but lived in a tiny one-room apartment. A girl of that time - the beginning of the 20th century - would never agree to visit a gentleman's bedroom, but the living room, into which Murphy turned the room in one movement, having figured out how to put the bed in the closet, is another matter. - an interesting and progressive way of arrangement, but be sure to make sure of the reliability of the mechanism. - In a room with an area of 3 by 4 meters, I neededplace not only a bed, but also everything else that is needed for life - wardrobes for books and clothes, a workplace, a sofa for guests. I explored all the unusual accommodation options - ceiling beds, windowsill beds, even sunken beds. In an ideal world, I would dare to just sleep in a hammock that can be cleaned during the day. But in real life I had to put up with a folding sofa. Elena, reader Sometimes in the room you really have to go to non-standard measures. A smart idea is to place the bed in the second tier, under the ceiling, and arrange a storage space or a mini-cabinet under it. The hanging bed frees up space underneath, but you need to be absolutely sure of the bindings. But sleeping in a hammock, alas, is not very good for the spine. - The location directly depends on the window.I would like to put the bed away from him - I'm afraid of drafts, but at the same time I want to see, waking up, what kind of weather it is outside. And worst of all - the advice that is often found in magazines to put the bed by the window, after all, there is a battery below, and a window on top, and you will be hot and cold. Rita, reader Putting the bed with the headboard to the window is worth it in some cases - for example, if you want to hide from street lighting, but do not want to miss the morning sun, we have already written about this. Indeed, it is worth remembering that a window is a source of not only light, but also drafts. Amalia Talfeld, designer and architect:- The options for the location of the bed depend on the size of the room, the location of the entrance and, of course, the window. If the view of the street pleases you, place the bed so that you can see it. The more common option - sideways to the window - is optimal for good organization of the space around the bed, but be sure to make sure that the cabinet doors and chest of drawers open easily and do not interfere with the passage. Setting the bed headboard to the window can protect you from drafts if the headboard is high enough. But be careful - air circulation and a pleasant temperature are essential to sleep. One of the problems that I solve with clients is drafts not even from the window, but from an air conditioner installed unsuccessfully above the bed. facebook.com/profile.php?id=100005023781827 There is another interesting and infrequent option for the location of the bed for more spacious rooms - diagonally, in the corner. So you can see both the window and the door, and the place behind the headboard is simply created for a lamp or a comfortable shelf. - I do a rearrangement every six months, according tomood, so my bed should be positioned so that it can be easily moved. The quality of sleep does not change - I sleep well on the floor, but I like to wake up periodically "in a new place." Alexandra, reader So, when thinking over the location of the bed, consider all of the above factors: the size of the room and its additional functions, light and air movement in the room, the possibility of free passage and, finally, make the best choice for a healthy and sound sleep.
