The bedroom is a private space, and quite often, the hub of a home. Here are some suggestions that would help make the bedroom truly a comfort zone.


THE BEDROOM is a place where we sleep. We also watch TV here, read, chat on the phone, tell stories and play with our children, and, of course, unwind after a hard day at work.

But in these days of high rentals and small spaces, it would be ideal to maybe just not have a bed. Roll out that lovely grass mat, stretch out those tired limbs, and hey presto! It's sweet dreams. No sheets to change! No bedcovers to select!

Chances of coming across this scenario in the urban areas are a bit slim these days, though for a majority of our rural population it is a daily feature. Perhaps, the sedentary lifestyle that urban consumers lead has contributed to the design of bedrooms. The bedroom is more often than not a haven to escape to. Therefore, the aim is to decorate it and make it a zone of comfort. The idea is not only to sleep in comfort but also ensure that the whole room is permeated with a feeling of comfort and relaxation.

The bed is the largest single element in this zone of comfort, supplemented by curtains, a bedside rug, dressing table, armchair or rocking chair, television set and other assorted pieces of furniture. It could actually just be a platform at an elevated but comfortable height to sleep on or a " bed station", like a workstation or better still a "space station". It could come combined with the side tables, to keep your bottle of water and alarm clock, maybe drawers, to keep odds and ends, a magazine or two, books and, of course, a bedside lamp.

The list of add-ons to the bed could be endless, but practically speaking, the essentials are few, keeping in mind a tight budget. So let's talk first about the budget bed. The bed frame should be sturdy; it definitely should be able to stand up to kids jumping on it and adults tossing about on it. Apart from the number of forests being cut to make solid wood beds, wouldn't it be plain old wisdom to use our knowledge of technology in the 21st Century and say that structurally there is little to beat a well-designed mild steel bed frame, powder-coated to survive the occasional scratch? And why pay extra for all those colonial curls in metal?

A simple, elegant, well-designed and strong bed frame is the basic requirement. Then, as the budget allows, side tables could be added on, with two levels the top for keeping a lamp, and the lower for magazines. Drawers to my mind just enhance cost, and help you keep away stuff you often may really not need. A couple of natural storage boxes, in pleasing colours would as well do the trick. The headboard is often a matter of concern to bed shoppers. Here the customer must be clear.

Is the headboard style being chosen based on practical factors or style factors? Practical is good, resulting in a headboard that doesn't creak or shake when you lean on it. Pillows shouldn't slide off when you prop them up under your neck to lean back and read. There should be no sharp corners, which would hurt kids who accidentally bump into them. After all, the bedroom is a private space from the rest of the world, but often the hub of the home.
