Bedrooms are rooms in residential buildings furnished as spaces for people to sleep. Sized proportionally in relation to a variety of standard bed sizes, bedrooms are typically desired to be individual rooms that provide a degree of privacy to their users. Bedrooms are required to have a window for light and ventilation and are typically required to provide a closet and egress to be legally considered a bedroom. Bedrooms are often decorated to reflect the personality of the user or the household. Ranging from small dormitory bedrooms to large bedrooms with attached bathrooms, commonly called master bedrooms, bedroom layouts are adaptable to many design demands.

What are the factors to consider when planning a bedroom layout?

Ease of circulation is a factor to consider when planning a bedroom layout. It should be easy to move throughout the room, getting to the door or the closet from the bed for example. Focusing on furniture configuration as well as the scale and function of these pieces is a way to achieve the best flow. View is another factor to consider, especially upon entrance into a bedroom. The sight upon walking in should feel open and possibly lead to a scenic window. Privacy should also be of main concern. It is recommended to design a bedroom layout in which one is unable to look directly into the bedroom from a public space in a home.

How do you design a small bedroom?

A common design idea when working with a small bedroom is to use color, lighting, and furniture pieces to give the illusion that the space is bigger than it actually is. Positioning mirrors will reflect natural light into the space while painting the room white will brighten it up. Pushing the bed up into a corner and mounting both shelves and lights will increase the floor space. These floating shelves can also act as night stands, entry tables, bookcases, etc.

What is a split bedroom floor plan?

A split bedroom floor plan typically separates a home into three areas: a great room or main floor, a master bedroom, and a quarter for the other bedrooms. This layout is intended to give more privacy between bedrooms (specifically for the master) separated on either end of the house with a main living area in between or on entirely different levels.
