A home is a place where we live, spend most of our lives,
with family members and our loved ones.
A bedroom design project includes a careful study of the
surrounding of the entire home. When an architect plans
a home, he takes into consideration many parameters for
the location of various spaces.
Lets take an example of the bedroom itself.
While deciding the location of the bedroom, an architect
might go through the following checklist.
* North direction
* Path of the sun.
* Surrounding landscapes.
* Presence of other natural elements such as lake, flowing
river, seashore, etc.. which could be visible through
* Wind direction.
* Man made other features, such as tall buildings, roads, etc..
These external factors directly affect the interior of a
bedroom. This is true with any space and not only bedroom.
For example the amount of sunlight entering in a room will
affect the dimensions of the window openings, which will
in turn affect the available space inside the room for
The overall atmospheric conditions outside, will affect the
type of finishes and materials used for furnishings, linen,
flooring, etc.. A bedroom on seashore will have a different
set of weather conditions to deal with than a room on a
hill slope with heavy snowfall.
That’s why the interior design of any living habitual space
is an exact replica of what’s happening outside. Everything
is so dynamic. A slight change in the outside world can
affect the appearance of the home altogether.
If you are trying to design your own space then this article
might help to start thinking on the concept level.
With these words I end this article and hope it was useful.
