Functional bedrooms do not have to be cold or boring; on the contrary, they can invite nature in and have an organic element to them, of a Zen quality. When we think about functional bedrooms images of multifunctional pieces of furniture come to mind followed by cold and sterile office like environments. This is not necessarily a description of a functional bedroom. A functional bedroom is conducive to use the space intelligently with function in mind, but also beauty and all tied to rest and relaxation in a bedroom.
Although multifunctional pieces of furniture are part of a modern functional bedroom, it is only one side of the design. Elegance to the design and a minimalistic approach to it are also essential elements of this type of bedroom. Most bedrooms following this design style will have two and not more than three color combinations, mostly neutral and a very careful and practical use of accessories. Accessories can also be used to add a punch of color to a neutral palette. Colors harmonize with each other and the use of lighting is functional and selective.
Modern functional bedrooms many times are gender neutral, and for a couple, they include elements conducive for relaxation and easy living considering both individuals. Functional bedrooms make use of color, lighting, and textures, forms to create a pleasant environment to the eye, but that is also practical for living.
This style of decorating is not only great for large spaces, but also perfect for small spaces since many of the furniture use can serve many purposes. Furnishings units that serve a purpose as a bed, storage, and tie up with a desk and set of drawers underneath are a perfect example of this type of design for an individual.
Kid’s rooms are perfect examples on how a multifunctional approach can be used to meet the many needs of kids and teenagers. Kids and teenagers have different needs than adults in bedroom design. Kids need a mattress to sleep, but also a combination of play zone, study and work zone, as well as media zone. Multifunctional furniture makes this easy to accomplish and kids/teenagers can have their separate zones in the room, no matter if the room is small, as this type of furnishings is designed to fill the need for more space.
Many of the pieces that are designed for kids use are sturdy, fun, and take the form of objects such as airplane chairs and beds, tents, boats, mountain retreats … all designed to help keep kids organized, but also as objects that encourage a playful time. The elements of functional design can be applied to adults, kids, and teenagers bedrooms.
