1. Focus on the View

It can be a pleasing to the eye when the view out the window is radiant with sunshine — as opposed to a view looking straight at the bed. When you’re designing a new bedroom or remodeling an old one, try to think about a layout that focuses on the vista — whether it’s something as stunning as a sea or as simple as your backyard.

2. Keep Privacy in Mind

Never forsaking all of your privacy whenever you leave the bedroom door open. The small foyer in this drawing provides separation from the family room. You should try to avoid designing a layout in which you can look directly into the bedroom from a more public space, like kitchen or living room.

3. Consider the Furniture Layout

Your bedroom’s architecture should never forget to take the furniture into account. Bedroom usually has a bed wall — but what about chairs and a desk, dressers, nightstands and TVs? Work and communicate with your architect or designer to make sure whether there is enough space beside the bed for nightstands or other objects.
