It is essential to understand its overall dimensions and lengths, try to harmonize it with the rest of the room and make the most of the available space.

Initially, the problem of the position of a definitive bed is not a topic that touches the young mothers who can decide to place the cradle, for the first months of the baby’s life, in their bedroom.

The dimensions are minimal and will not excessively constrain the geometries of the room. Instead, the arrangement of a cot is to be carefully evaluated, perhaps transformable, which can accompany the child up to 2/3 years.

In this case, the dimensions increase, and more attention will be required when purchasing.

Currently, different models can evolve and change according to the needs of the child.

Thanks to the elimination of the bars, it can become a practical intermediate bed of a maximum length of 140 cm.

The next step is undoubtedly a single bed which, with sides to avoid falling out of the bed, will be the definitive solution until adolescence.

How to make a bridge bed

If you have little room in the children’s room, one of the most adopted design solutions is undoubtedly the bridge bed.

It is the perfect system for concentrating indispensable furnishings, such as a bed, wardrobe, and desk, in a single, very functional, equipped wall.

The idea is to insert a wardrobe compatible with the measurements of the wall that will host it and reserve a space below the bed, just like a bridge.

It is almost always a matter of modular compositions in which it is possible to aggregate several container elements and obtain an ad hoc structure.

But which are the furnishing components that cannot be missed?

Most of the space will undoubtedly be destined to modules with doors for storing items of clothing in which it is also possible to include a practical chest of drawers.

You can then think of inserting pen modules, such as cubes or shelves, which will lighten the entire composition and will be useful for storing books and notebooks.

And finally, if the dimensions allow it is possible to add a desk, perhaps with wheels.

Colors and materials for your bridge bed

There are many proposals for finishes and colors suitable for customizing the bridge bed.

My advice is not to overdo the color, reserving the accents of shades only for some modules.

You can, for example, enhance a terminal bookcase module or some doors, or even the bed profiles, making it less severe.

Another alternative could be to choose a neutral color for the shell of the structure and dare with the handles, very colorful and maybe of different sizes.

Consider, also, that if the bed has a “big” size, then you will have to deal with the tastes of a child who will grow and therefore necessarily transform.

A room with baby shades may not be appreciated in the future.

Instead, you can play with the colors of accessories and accessories that should never be missing, and that can be replaced more easily. The only care is to prefer furniture with non-toxic water-based paints that respect the environment and health.

Accessories to embellish your bridge bed

To make the space dedicated to children more comfortable and hospitable, have fun choosing accessories and accessories that will complete their dream bedroom.

There are many fun ideas to use even if you have planned to insert a bridge bed.

The first is the cladding with stickers or wallpaper that, having recently come back into fashion, can be placed on the wall that remains free just below the structure, calibrating colors and imagination.

Don’t also forget to insert a lamp or an applique.

It will be necessary to illuminate the area near the bed and can be easily used by the little ones, with all the precautions related to safety.

If space allows, it is possible to add a bedside table or a tabletop, convenient for holding handkerchiefs or books.

Today we talk about light and how to light up the bedroom by recreating atmosphere and romance.

Imagining the right lighting for every room in our home is not easy.

Often in a hurry to furnish it, we forget to study in detail the light requirements of each space, finding ourselves adding lamps of different nature here and there.

First of all, it is necessary to consider the dimensions of the room and the geometry of the space to avoid creating dead corners, dark and therefore, little exploitable.

It is fundamental, then, that it adapts both to the style of the furniture chosen for our room and to the colors and shades of the coverings.

A right harmony of the elements is the perfect balance to give life to a comfortable, pleasant environment and, in the case of the bedroom, intimate.

Obviously, in every point, a quantity of light must be spread adequately to the activities carried out.

Light up the bedroom with suspended chandeliers

Certainly, the first type of lighting that I would like to mention is the suspended one that can be used as a primary diffused source to revive the environment and carry out the main activities.

There are really many on the market and with different characteristics: from a beautiful lampshade covered in classic-looking fabric to the most extravagant modern forms with innovative materials.

The choice is complicated above all because companies now offer solutions of all kinds.

If you intend to enhance minimal and essential furniture, for example, it can be fun to focus on a particular and unconventional lamp that can create wonder and awe.

Be careful though don’t over light the room by exaggerating with the choice of watts!

It is a very common mistake that would cancel the atmosphere of quiet and relaxation typical of the bedroom.

It may be useful to choose lamps with small dimensions and, perhaps, with opalescent diffusers that can allow you to adjust the lighting intensity.

Diffused lighting for the bedroom

The lights complementary to the main ones are often underestimated. Think about it.

The first thing we would like to find as soon as we enter the bedroom is an atmosphere that relaxes our mind and body, which allows us to read a good book or use tablets and laptops for work.

The soft lights contribute to this.

Localized lights are useful for carrying out a precise activity or for enhancing an embellished corner of refined decorations.

Generally, it is better to prefer color or a style and to uniform all the lighting bodies as much as possible.

The design is absolutely subjective, and you will find a wide assortment both in the online shops and in the retailers of companies, maybe Italian.

The combination between them will create the right harmony between comfort and brightness that will not bother the view.

It is important, then, to provide more accentuated lighting in the wardrobe area.

Here, in fact, the light intensity should be increased to allow an easier and faster choice of combinations of clothes!

It is, in fact, a rather deep element, so it will be easy to create bands of shadow.

How to light up the bedroom with bedside lamps

Nothing more classic than bedside lamps, often twin.

Commonly they are table lamps, ideal for those who read a lot and therefore need direct and intense lighting but also for those who want to enjoy a bit of relaxation in the bed.

Try to prefer lamps with a dimmer that will allow you to adjust the intensity easily, and it will also become an excellent ally in case of a night-time heel lift.

There are also wall lamps of various types to be installed on the wall or with a convenient, flexible arm that can be adapted and directed without any effort.

You may prefer an eclectic design that strikes immediately or an essential and very simple form with traditional materials.

The important thing, in any case, is that the stem or foot of the lamps occupy little space on the bedside table, leaving the top free to support books or personal effects.

Lighting is therefore, essential in all the rooms in the home.

It can enhance corners, hide areas or create soft and relaxing settings with the right directions.

Study the characteristics well at the time of purchase, including technical ones, or get suggestions from industry experts.

What I can recommend is certainly to prefer a maximum of 100 lux horizontal for the primary diffused lights and a warm light tone with an excellent color rendering to have an intimate and hospitable nest.

The first indispensable requirement is, undoubtedly, to return an excellent quantity of light, capable of carrying out the main activities and functions related to the room in which we find ourselves. Try taking cues from the composition of architects and interior design, stopping to note the effect of the lamps when they are turned on. I’m sure it will be a precious inspiration for your beautiful homes!
