Non-standard interior does not always mean the use of some newfangled materials or the purchase of author's items of famous designers. To embody the creative environment, it is enough to combine familiar and familiar objects with interesting and unusual. A prerequisite is the preservation of the functionality of things and the convenience of using them. For a bedroom it is important to rationally use the space for installing a bed and the area around it.
Manufacturers offer several solutions to the issue of compact placement of beds and furniture in the bedroom.
Bed with a shelf in the headboard
Shelves, fixed on the wall above the headboard or installed directly on the head of the bed, can easily replace the bedside tables.
Wall models can be used simply as a decorative element of the bedroom interior (as a stand for photographs, souvenirs). Although some products can easily put magazines, phone, laptop. An excellent solution is to put a lamp that will light up the pages of books much better than the model installed on the bedside table.
When securing the shelf, it is important to choose the right distance from the bed to the structure. The best option for solving the problem - sitting on the bed in a comfortable position (half-sitting or reclining), raise your hand up. If the shelf is used solely as a decoration, then it can be fixed above the raised hand.
From wall-based products you can create a beautiful composition, with some models used as decorative, and others - for specific practical requirements.
Modern shelves are no longer associated only with wood. Glassware looks weightless and easily fit into any interior. The options for their use are determined by the thickness of the glass, the method of attachment.
Shelves built into the headboard
Undoubtedly, the wall shelves are decorative and comfortable for decorating the bedroom. However, if the tenants like to often rearrange the furniture, then the shelves can not easily be moved. An exit in a similar situation is a bed with shelves in the headboard (built-in). Manufacturers offer so interesting and non-standard models that it will not be difficult to find a product.
The most popular option is a headboard with a shelf for the entire width of a double bed or a single bed. The structures can be located directly above the head of the bed or on the sides. Some special models of shelves are made in the form of continuation of a berth and are used as bedside tables. They are convenient to put on lamps, decorative objects (photos, figurines).
Shelves are open (it is convenient to put books, decorative things) or closed. Comfortable use of closed shelves will provide sliding doors.
Bed with a niche
If there is a niche at the head of the bed, then it is quite possible to equip it with shelves. To emphasize this area of the room, it is enough to highlight the opening with a special highlight. The niche can have a height to the ceiling or be located up to the middle of the wall. In any case, such a decorative area provides many options for the arrangement of hinged shelves.
Depending on the area of the niche, it can be adapted for storing books, souvenirs, photographs. At the stage of choosing the dimensions of the niche, you can choose the width of the structure more than the head of the double bed. In this case, the individual shelves are equipped with sliding doors, and a full-scale capacious cabinet is formed. If the doors are made of glass, the construction will not look cumbersome, and it will not be difficult to find any books or things.
A non-standard variant of a sleeping place can be considered a sofa bed with shelves. In similar products shelves are placed under the armrests. And there are many options for furniture. A sofa bed with a shelf is made in straight or angular shape. Depending on the area of the room, you can pick up models that have shelves on their sides or are additionally equipped behind the back of the product. Sofa bed with shelves is comfortable and ergonomic.
Such models allow in one product to combine several furnishings (sofa, bed, shelves). These structures can not be called widespread, which is primarily due to their high cost, although the advantages of beds with lifting mechanisms are sufficient:
- a wide range of models;
- the transformation of the room depending on the time of day in the bedroom or the living room (very much in demand for studio apartments);
- simple operation of the device for raising / lowering the elements of the structure, which ensures comfortable use of furniture (elderly people and children can easily cope);
- arrangement of a full rest in small bedrooms; a positive feature - the side surface protects the sleeping person from the cold wall;
- built-in boxes (under the mattress) allow you to put things there (blanket, pillow). The presence of these storage sites can make construction more difficult;
- much easier to clean the room.
It is most convenient for a children's room to install a horizontal structure (cross-hinged). In these products, the bed with the shelf rises in width of the berth. In the closed state the product takes the form of a conventional chest. On the shelf it is quite convenient to place books and photographs. You can put the TV. Such a child's bed with a shelf is convenient
to install in the nursery, because it will be interesting for both boys and girls.
A non-standard variant is a bunk bed-transformer, which combines the functions of a sleeping place and a working table. The transformation takes place through the operation of the swing-and-tilt mechanism.
Disadvantages of such models can be considered high cost and complexity to choose an option for a non-standard room.
For the children's room manufacturers offer a comfortable model of furniture - bed-loft. Do not confuse this design with a bunk bed. The peculiarity of the structure of the product is that at a height of about 1 - 1.7 m from the floor there is one bed. There is a table or shelves under the bed.
Such a construction with a working area is considered the most ideal option for decorating a children's room. Climbing to the loft bed and going down, the kids receive an additional portion of movements, develops dexterity and coordination, and most importantly - it's a lot of positive and cheerful emotions.
When buying an item, you should pay attention to the following nuances:
- The safety of the model depends on the stability of the structure, the reliability of the fasteners, the distance between the lower working area and the bed;
- the steps should be well fixed, it is desirable to provide some anti-slip coating for the step surface;
- if small children are to be sleeping on the crib-attic, then it is necessary to install protective skirts. This measure will prevent the fall of babies during sleep.
When purchasing a loft bed with a workplace, you should take into account that the training area will be poorly lit, so it is necessary to install a table lamp of sufficient power.
Models of beds suitable for children of different ages
For children from two years, the bed is set relatively low (at a height of 0.8-1 m from the floor level). Under the bed can be located: a play area, a locker for clothes, shelves for toys, books. Optimal option - models with a sliding part. That is, at the time of sleep, all the constituent parts of the structure (table, shelves, boxes) easily slide under the bed.
Bed-loft for a child over the age of five is already focused on the arrangement of a full-fledged workplace. The area near the table is equipped with bookshelves. The bed is installed at an altitude of 1.3-1.6 m above the floor.
In adolescent models, the sleeping place is placed at a height of 1.6-1.8 m above the floor. These designs allow you to place not only a workplace in the lower part, but also bookshelves, wardrobes for clothes.
When buying furniture, preference should be given to products made of wood. When choosing a design, it is desirable to purchase models of calm pastel shades. Ideal option - the texture of natural wood. Depending on the interior of the children's room and its location (north or south side), you can choose beds of light or dark shades.
The variety of bed designs makes it possible to create a cozy sleeping place in a compact room or in rooms combined with a living room. The right choice of model will help to embody a stylish interior, which will also be comfortable for rest and full sleep.
