Multifunction interiors are firmly inour everyday life. No one was surprised by the combined kitchen, dining and living rooms, connection office with a library, a bedroom with dressing room. Even unusual baths, located directly in the bedroom that can create a shock a couple of decades ago, today no one seems strange. Conventionally, it is possible all the principles of connecting various functional segments in one room divided into two types - in the first case, the combination of zones due to lack of space, when the owners simply have to go to such a measure, the second case is the opposite concept - a large space can be used for the location of several life segments . In this article we will talk about combining the living area to the bedroom.
Bedroom convertible in the living room
Among modern dwellings owned by a large proportion ofstudio apartments. In such spaces, one large room combines several functional areas. Most often subjected to isolation only bathroom. Living in this case turns out to be side by side with a bedroom. If the room is spacious enough, the zoning of multiple segments of life is not difficult. But how to plan for placement of bed in the living room, if storage space is sorely lacking? Come to the aid with folding bed mechanisms. In the evening of the closet transforms bed, and the room becomes a bedroom, in the morning you return the structure in place and the room is again converted into the living room, ready to receive visitors.
Of course, sleep on a folding bed is not availableeveryone - the elderly, the disabled and the very large body will not be able to fully relax, sitting on such a structure. But for young couples or single apartment owners a variant of the organization of the situation at home may be the best.
As can act as a transformer does notas the bed itself, as the podium for her. Typically, such structures are inserted storage (up to the space under the stairs) and countertop workspace organization.
For many people living in one-room apartmentsbedroom is both a living room, office, library. And the only possible options for the use of a berth becomes a couch with a pull-out mechanism. Of course, provide the necessary level of support for the sleeping person's body can not sofa thus performs these functions as a mattress. But the need to use fold-out couch can find a model that unfolds in an almost uniform plane.
As zoned space in the bedroom
Another option to combine living spaceBedrooms and does not involve the use of transformations with furniture. Sleeping segment can be zoned using curtains. For ceiling mounted rails (rails), which moves to curtains or draperies. The result is a completely private area for sleeping, while the living room is a full functional segment.
One of the most inexpensive, but effective method for separating sleeping areas from the living sector - using shelves as a partition.
On the one hand - you get an extrastorage for books, documents and other necessary items, on the other - a beautiful interior elements. At the same rack configuration can be either completely blind structure that does not pass the light from one area to another, and be full of empty spaces to create more "air" image.
Sometimes as a partition between the bedroom andthe living room is possible to meet the construction, in which are written effectively, not only storage, but also a double-sided fireplace. Aside from the obvious division of space into sectors, both functional areas receive remarkable element of the interior, the observation of which is able to pacify and relax - fireplace with fire.
The scale of some lounges allow zoningSleeping sector by glass partitions. If equipped with such partition curtains, you can at any time to achieve exceptional privacy bedroom. Odernuv curtains, you get a space into which penetrates the natural light from the living room.
But for many designers and homeowners anyfencing functional segments is unacceptable - just open plan, allowing to maintain a feeling of spaciousness and freedom, even in medium-sized rooms. Typically, in such spaces bedroom area is not restricted. Total surface finish, choice of textiles and decor, and lighting systems to be equipped for each functional segment.
One way of separating the functionalsegments within the same premises - the selection difficult sector and the whole stage. For rooms with high ceilings can be released for the location of the top-level bed directly above the living room. At the same bedroom area can be very small in size - to accommodate the bed must be quite a bit of free space, and the ceiling height of the essential role it plays.
How to make a sitting area in the bedroom
It would be strange not to make use of a usefulbedroom space to accommodate a further zone in addition to bed. Especially as for the organization of the segment of rest and relaxation, or even small business meetings, only a couple of armchairs, a coffee table or ottoman and a small TV, located on one of the walls.
The most logical arrangement of chairs or sofasliving area, located in the bedroom, it can be considered a window seat. And not just because this space is not used for the location of the bed (not talking about exceptional cases of small spaces). As a result of this plan, we have not only a place for relaxation and private conversations, but also a comfortable area for reading. In the daytime there is enough daylight to dusk necessary to provide for the presence of a source of artificial light - outdoor floor lamp will be a great option.
Even a single chair, a small table-stand andfloor lamp, set the window to form a comfortable place to read. Also, the area with a coffee table can be used for short meals, such as breakfast. It will be especially nice to drink your morning coffee, sitting in a comfortable chair, if the window extends a pleasant gaze landscape.
If there is a fireplace in the bedroom, it is logicala living room area near the hearth. A pair of comfortable chairs by the fire, a coffee table and floor lamp for night reading - to create an ideal area for recreation can be in the bedroom.
For bedrooms, with long, rationalwill be the location of the recreation area at the foot of the bed. When placing the seat backs right up to the foot and the installation of a small table-stand between them, saving valuable room space to sleep and rest.
If the space of the room allows, you can notlimited to the installation of seats and use the sofa compact model. From the viewpoint of execution of upholstered furniture, optionally, to a sofa and chair upholstery and we have the same design. Original appearance of the image can be achieved by using different colors in the design of furniture items, but combined with textile design bed and decorating windows.
Bedroom with bay window is impossible not to be used forthe dispensation of the living area, in addition to sleeping segment. Depending on the size and configuration bay. Set it can be a couple of chairs with a small table and a compact sofa with corresponding additional objects of the interior - an ottoman, a floor or table lamp.
In order to harmoniously link the living room area andSleeping sector, easiest to use textiles. For example, if you have already prepared bed, for a balanced integration of recreation areas can use a single fabric for the upholstery of chairs, sofas and ottomans, and make a soft bed pillow is already installed in the same material.
A great way to highlight the seating area in the bedroom andwhile preserving freedom of movement and spaciousness of the room - the use of arches of different configurations. Arch will do recreation area more welcoming, comfortable, a little isolated. Depending on the size of the room, the chosen style of interior, it can be as traditional arches and trivial, design options isolation recreation area.
How to make a home office in the bedroom
In addition to recreation areas, in a spacious bedroom can beThere is a small work space. Modern gadgets are incredibly compact - for organizing computer desk rather narrow console, which is attached directly to the wall. Becomes near a comfortable chair or a chair with back and seat and soft - home office sector is ready. The convenience of such zones is that the workplace can be used as a dressing table - hang on the mirror console or use the product in the flexible tripod and place to create the image of daily prepared.
In addition to recreation, the bedroom with a large areaIt can be placed wardrobe segment. In this case, there are several options for placement of the storage systems in a residential area. For example, you can close the dressing room behind the glass sliding doors, which almost will not prevent the penetration of light into the storage area, but it is clearly delimit the functional segment. Many homeowners like the idea of using curtains, low screens, which are ideal for the interior, decorated in oriental style. There are also lovers of space, who prefer not to limit the room bedroom area by a partition options and leave the space free for unimpeded traffic.
Another way to use the sleeping areamultifunctional - adding to the zone source for reading books - home library. To embed or install bookshelves is necessary not so much usable space of the room - the shallow open shelves suitable for placement of books. One of the walls without windows is quite suitable for this purpose. Or you can use the space around the window to embed custom, perfectly suitable for the size of a bookcase or rack.
