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 does not matter whether there is any basis for superstition - if they bother you, 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. It is better to think about other points, that it will be easier to restructure the bedding if at least 60-80 centimeters on either side of the bed to the wall. And that the curtains are not very comfortable to use, if the window - head of the bed, not to mention drafts. bondarevadesign.ru Tatyana Yushchenko, interior designer: - Alcove or niche, in which you can put the bed - the perfect solution for the bedroom! This arrangement always gives a sense of privacy, intimacy and comfort. If the bed can not be put head-on to 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 - double bed with a width of 140 cm, so that it can be approached from both sides. facebook.com/yushchenko.tatiana We examined the ideal conditions. And if the size of the room is such that the option of placing a spacious double bed in it is only one? - Our bedroom has only about 11 square meters of area, narrow and connected by one wall - the one opposite the entrance - with a balcony that we do not plan to connect. So scientific is the approach or not, but we had only two options - the headboard to the right wall or to the left. Even so, passing the bed to the window can only be sideways. Tatyana, reader In this situation, the options, indeed,Little. It is doubtful that the owners were ready to give up a comfortable spacious bed and return to the folding couches. But there is an idea - the lifting bed simply turns into a day in a closet or table, and at night falls into place. It is said that its creator, the inventor of Murphy, planned to invite his girlfriend to strict rules, but lived in a tiny one-room apartment. The girl of that time - the beginning of the 20th century - would never have agreed to visit the gentleman's bedroom, but the living room into which Murphy turned the room in one motion, figuring out how to put the bed in a closet is another matter. - an interesting and progressive way of arrangement, but be sure to check the reliability of the mechanism. - In a room measuring 3 to 4 meters I neededplace not only the bed, but everything else that is necessary for life - bookcases and clothes, a workplace, a sofa for guests. I studied all the unusual accommodation options - beds under the ceiling, beds on the windowsill, even the beds recessed in the floor. In an ideal world, I would decide to just sleep in a hammock that can be cleaned in the daytime. But in real it was necessary to reconcile with a folding sofa. Elena, the reader Sometimes in a room really it is necessary to go on non-standard measures. A sensible idea is to place the bed in the second tier, under the ceiling, and equip it with a storage space or a mini-cabinet. A suspended bed frees the space beneath it, but you must be absolutely sure of the mounts. But to sleep in a hammock, alas, is not too useful 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 the weather is on the street. And worst of all - often meeting in the boards of councils to put a bed at the window, there after all from below the battery, and on the top of the window, and you will be hot or cold. Rita, the reader Put the bed head to the window is in some cases - for example, if you want to close from street lighting, but do not want to miss the morning sun, we already wrote about this. And indeed, it is worth remembering that the window is the source of not only light, but also drafts. Amalia Talfeld, designer and architect: - The layout of the bed depends on the size of the room, the location of the entrance and, of course, the window. If the view on the street pleases you - put the bed so that it can be seen. The more common option - sideways to the window - is optimal for a good organization of the space around the bed, but be sure that the cabinet doors and chest drawers open easily and do not interfere with the passage. Setting the bed back to the window can protect you from drafts if the headboard is high enough. But be careful - air circulation and a pleasant temperature regime are extremely important for sleep. One of the problems that I solve with customers is drafts not even from the window, but from an unsuccessfully installed air conditioner over the bed. facebook.com/profile.php?id=100005023781827 There is another interesting and infrequently found variant of the arrangement of the bed for more spacious rooms - diagonally, in the corner. So you can see both the window and the door, and the space behind the headboard is simply created for a lamp or a comfortable shelf. - I do a permutation every six months,mood, so my bed should be so that it is easy to move. The quality of sleep does not change - I sleep fine on the floor, but I like to wake up periodically "in a new place." Alexandra, reader So, considering the location of the bed, consider all 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.
