Masculinity abounds in the example above, from the floating bookshelves on the wall to the detailed headboard. Situated within must-have gray walls, this manly bedroom has a reading area next to the fireplace and exhibits a bold design mix bordering on simplicity. Choosing the interior design style that enhances your living experience might be hard, but it‘s worth the trouble. Masculinity is often found in small things, in the way a furniture piece is made or in the way one object accompanies others. This bedroom above is part of a luxurious New York City penthouse apartment with astounding space design.
Sleep is a beautiful thing. In the warmth and comfort of your own bed, sleep can help you stay healthy, improve mental dexterity and recharge for whatever tomorrow holds. While finding your perfect mattress is essential to a good night`s rest, it`s all for naught without a great pillow to rest your head. Finding the right pillow — as well as sleeping on the wrong one — can be a real pain in the neck. Ironically, choosing your perfect pillow can force you to sacrifice precious sleep as you peruse the far reaches of the internet in the night in search of the right one (we`ve all been there).
For example, whether it`s a bookshelf, storage cube or wall unit, place baby friendly toys and items on the lower shelves. Your toddler or older child can stand and reach for the basket of Lego. Incorporate elements that show your children their growing family. Photos of the kids together, framed handprints of when they each were newborns encourage them to appreciate their younger or older sibling while adding a warm family atmosphere to their bedroom. Finding the space in one room for twice as much furniture and storage is one of the most daunting tasks when designing a shared room. This is where your resourcefulness and editing eye need to kick into high gear. Less is definitely more in a shared bedroom, as is multifunctional and shared design. As a baseline, selecting streamlined furniture is essential to keep the room feeling as spacious as possible and allow for storage and playing. If your kids are old enough, bunk beds are always an excellent choice. Whether L-shaped or vertical, a bunk bed is an efficient use of space and oftentimes has built-in storage underneath.
Your bedroom shouldn’t just be the place where you sleep. Ideally, the space should feel like somewhere you want to spend your free time. One easy way to achieve that is by adding a seating area that you can use when you don't feel like lounging in bed. As with any seating area, it’s important to identify which function it will fulfill. If you like to curl up with a good book, place a stately armchair next to a bookcase. If you’re all about catching up on your favorite shows, look for a loveseat or daybed that will give you room to stretch out.
Speaking of…under the bed storage such as rollaway drawers is always helpful in creating more space and can hold seasonal or limited use items. Storage chests with cushions can be used as a seat to a play table as well as conceal a mountain of toys. A wall unit with drawers can pull double duty as a dresser and desk. Shelving is super convenient for toy organization as it doesn‘t take up a lot of space and can be placed above dressers, desks, even above the door for hardly used items. Similarly, placing a bookshelf at the foot of the bed doesn‘t take up valuable wall space and may even give you another surface near the bed for a lamp or nighttime book. For clothing, wall and door hooks are helpful for every-day go-to items. In the closet, install two rods (i.e. double hanging) so each child can have separate hanging space. Regardless of your design challenge, when creating a shared room for your little ones if you stick to resourceful, efficient, fun and creative choices, you‘ll no doubt create a bedroom your kids will love!
