In the basic fabric of bedroom composition, interior design plays an important role – the bed room not only defines the psyche, and habits of an individual that inhabits that space, but also conforms them into a permanent sort of routine. It is, therefore important to design your room properly, so it may reflect your personality through the space that you occupy. Of all the amenities that define that anatomy of the bedroom, there are a few consistencies that matter – out of which, are the bed, the tables, and the cabinets. The bed would always be the centerpiece of the room, but the cabinetry does not always have to be on the periphery. This article would discuss some innovative ideas to incorporate the design of cabinets into your bedrooms, while making them a seamless part of the design.
1. Modern meets Contemporary
The modern style is defined by sleek lines, an abundance of windows, and a severe sort of austerity that makes most design features redundant. Contemporary, on the other hand, is a completely static discipline – incorporating mellifluous lines, a consolidation of bright colors, and an ever changing design scheme. When both disciplines meet, we get a minimalist byproduct, which is both elegant, chic, and graceful. An attractive style of rethink your bedroom cabinetry, would be incorporate such an aesthetic into your design, where, in the midst of a frugal bedroom, you can accommodate a splash of color.
2. Drop-Hang Style
Another interesting option in the minimalist genre would be to use the open hanging cabinetry style. In this style, the cabinetry becomes a wholesome part of your bedroom. You can not only use it for storage, but you can also use it for show casing your prized possessions – shoes, shawls, clothes – and small, decorative knick-knacks. It would highlight your personality, and your room.
3. Expose Style
This style of cabinet is more for showcasing, rather than storage; but given the right juxtaposition of placement and design, it could become a ‘feature’ of your bedroom. Pair it up with your main wall, and design the outlook from the center, and make sure that this design goes with your color scheme – the end product would be a part hangnail and part exposed countertop. You could showcase your shoe and scarf collection – or even use it as a temporary hanger for your clothes.
4. Into the Wall
Another elegant way, to seamlessly blend your cabinetry, right into your room, would be by using your walls as a design element. If your taste leans towards simple, standard, and elementary, then this would be the best way to go. For this kind of cabinet designing, make sure that your room is adequately sizeable, and affix the storage compartments accordingly. Not only, in this way, would be your clutter out of sight, but it would also become a great admixture of functionality and design.
If making the cabinets a part of the design element of a bedroom is an option, then making the bed a part of the cabinetry is definitely a big yes. Especially for a Nursery or child bedroom design, this option could be a great space-saving mechanism – not only would it provide instant reprieve from clutter, but it would also provide a cozy, intimate, nook that could be a part of your bedroom design concept. It could also provide an advent for color scheming – you can choose various samples and decide which appeal to your sensibilities.
6. The Smart Choice
In this day and age, where smart objects – apartments, furniture, products, technology – are a big dovetail of society, the use of smart cabinetry in your bedrooms is a definite solution to optimize space. If your bedroom is not adequately sizeable enough to incorporate any of the more profligate ideas, you can turn to smart designing for a solution. A smart cabinet design would not only optimize space, but would amalgamate various other activities in its concept. A great example would be to combine the cabinets into stairs, so that you may not only store your clutter, but also optimize the space by making a smart decision.
7. The Modish-Chic Style
A storage and bed combo – albeit slightly different than the one mentioned above. Now you can compartmentalize your storage and make it seem like a stylistic opportunity, by merging it with the bed – but here, the bed is the more dominant feature, slightly obscuring the cabinetry in a genius way, which would not make it seem overbearing, or overstated. It’s an elegant way to merge two activities that define the perimeters of the same room, while at the same time, integrating a sense of style into an otherwise drab system.
8. Going Antique
The most overused trope in the bedroom cabinetry genre has been building, or designing a cabinet on the very periphery of the room, and use it for the purpose of storage, only. Given the sturdy proclivity of that genre, it has become a sort of a standard – and in the era of individuality, most people refrain from becoming the standard. But if you add just a slight twist to the standards, it could become something new and beautiful again. In the case of a periphery cabinet, you could add folding door, with inside compartments that are only semi-visible. This would add a much needed refreshing outlook, while still being a confident statement.
9. Store On The Edge
One unique way to design a customized storage cabinet, would be to drag it to the very periphery of the room. In such a scenario, the cabinetry would have an open space in between each outlet, so you can design a specified nook, an office space, or a play area in that space, too. Most elegant, would be if you could define the two sets of periphery, with a window in between. That would enhance the character of the space and design.
10. Bed-inette 2.0
Another fun way to incorporate you cabinetry with your bed would be to design an inbuilt mechanism for storage in the empty space between the bed – like the space between the floor and the top of the bed. Not only would it be a smart choice, but it would also give you opportunities to showcase your belongings – be it clothing, shoes, or even decorative baubles – while keeping you motivated to keep it organized and clean.
