A dimensions guide for Bedroom. (introduction)
In the general bedroom design. There are 3 main functions to be considered: the size of the bed, the wardrobe, and the resting space.
The choice of these 3 functions is closely related to everyone’s living style. As for the size of the bed, some people want to sleep in a double size bed alone, and there are also people who can sleep in a single-size bed.
The capacity of the wardrobe is related to the number of clothes a person or couple usually owns and how they manage there storage. Normally, the capacity demand of the wardrobe of boys will be a little less, and the demand of capacity of the wardrobes of girls will be a little more. If the bedroom is for temporary working or for someone with simple life style, there may be only a small demand for wardrobe capacity.
The availability of resting space is related to what kind of activities people expect to engage in in the bedroom. Some people expect a comfortable window side couch that can be used to enjoy the leisurely reading time in the afternoon, and some people need to a desk for some work, engage in hobbies and reading; sometimes a small sofa in a corner can provide a comfortable and quiet seat. Or if a young couple puts a bed-end chair at the end of the bed, in addition to talking and resting, it can also assist in various postures and increase the fun of the night.
Therefore, the quality of a bedroom is more than just providing bed space for sleeping and basic wardrobe storage. There will be various needs and possibilities according to the life preferences of different people.
Therefore, we introduced the concept of service level in the bedroom size design guide. A general single bedroom provides a single bed space, a basic desk or dresser, and a wardrobe with basic storage capacity; such a bedroom can become a level 3 bedroom. An extremely simple bedroom with only a bed and a wardrobe is a service level 2 bedroom; a bed with a normal size of wardrobe, a simple resting space, a complete double bed and a desk may reach service level 5. The bedroom provides a considerable amount of wardrobe, a variety of resting spaces, a full double bed and a desk may reach a service level 8.
Regarding the way the bed is placed, you should consider the setting of the headboard when placing it, avoid the headboard from blocking the window, and try to avoid the headboard close to the door and the wardrobe and other taller furniture, which will produce a sense of oppression. At the same time, the relationship between the bed and the window should be considered to be able to enjoy the view outside the window when sitting on the bed, and the window sill height and window form of the bedroom window should be considered in accordance with the position of the scenery outside the window.
Single bed for single use – At least a 40 cm wide aisle is left on the side of the bed for people to get on and off the bed. If possible, a 40 cm wide walkway should be left at the end of the bed. It will be more convenient to clean, maintain and refurbish the bed in the future.
Double bed for single use – The setting is the same as the single bed, just increase the size of the bed
Double bed for double use – There is at least a 40 cm wide aisle on both sides and the foot of the bed for people to get on and off the bed and pass. If there is no aisle with a width of 40 cm on one side of the bed, the person sleeping on that side must go to bed from the end of the bed, which is inconvenient and easy to interfere with each other when sleeping.
A wardrobe should be used as an easy-to-use wardrobe. The length of the wardrobe up to 60 cm can be obscured by tables, cabinets, beds or other fixed furniture, and the unobstructed length should be at least half of the total length of the wardrobe. To ensure convenient access to clothing.
When the front of a wardrobe is furniture with a height of less than 70 cm, such as a bed or a bed end chair, there should be a clear space of at least 40 cm between the bed and the wardrobe to ensure that people can stand in front of the wardrobe to take clothes.
Regarding the L-shaped wardrobe, since the L-shaped wardrobe will produce a corner that is more difficult to use, it is not recommended to use it. If you use an L-shaped wardrobe, the size of the wardrobe should not be less than 60 cm on the short side and 120 cm on the long side.
The bed end chair – Only set at the end of the double bed, which is more suitable for couples’ bedrooms, and there must be enough space around the end of the bed for people to use.
The window side couch – Only set by the window, and used for various leisure activities such as watching the scenery outside the window, taking a nap, reading, or simply eating, drinking, etc., and its length should be at least 150 cm long (for two people to sit on it comfortably) on)
Sofa – Set it in a place that does not affect the movement of the line. It is used for various leisure activities such as nap, reading, simple meal, drinking, etc. If there is more space, side tables can also be set up to form a small relaxing sofa area.
