I recently came across an enchanting bedroom design. The interior designer had carefully transformed the brief into a breathtaking interior space. I thought that I might as well share what I saw with all avid interior design lovers.
Lets start with the floor. A beautiful walnut shade was used on the floor in a seamless pattern. The material used for the same was laminated melamine face wooden flooring. The floor thickness was 8mm with an under layer of plastic and foam to cushion and absorb weight. Though not as classic as a genuine hardwood floor, the laminated floor is an excellent alternative to hard wood floors as it is very cost-effective yet gives a pristine look and feel. I personally love adding laminated floors in most of my interior design projects and currently have a light steam beach shade installed in my bedroom.
Next come the walls. All the walls of the room were paneled in a Dark Wenge shade. A layer of 4mm natural veneer was used on top of 12mm ply board attached with a 50mm by 50mm natural wood frame. The wooden framing was done in pinewood but spruce may also be used for the same. The natural veneer skin was derived from Wenge wood and after a few coats of polish and a melamine top cover the look it gave was truly amazing. To add further depth grooves of 6mm width and 12mm depth were left at horizontal intervals of 3 feet each. The wall to the left of the bedroom had a projection roll down screen placed on it. The fold rod of the projection screen was hidden conveniently in a niche made on the false ceiling.
Now comes the bed. The bed was almost 3′ high. To get on the bed one would have to climb two levels of side boards around 1’6” in depth. The vertical face of the sideboards was covered in Wenge wood in line with the theme of the room. The top face of the sideboard was an interesting combination hat I haven’t seen earlier. A wooden frame was and then milky white frost glass was recessed between the 1’6” by 1’6” frame openings. White tube lights were placed underneath the glass to make it back-lit. Once the lights were on the effect it gave was amazing. On top of the multi level sideboards come the bed mattress. The mattress in this case was at least 12” high. The interior designer covered the mattress in white sheets with a high thread count, while also adding a brownish maroon satin sheet to add contrast. The headboard of the bed had cove lights behind in Orange and Yellow color. A LED strip was used to create this effect.
The wall at the back of the bed was an interesting charade of Wenge wood panels of random sizes protruding out of a Wenge paneled wall. All the panels were back-lit through cove lights of a yellow shade. Tube lights of sizes ranging from 1′ to 4′ were used to create the desired effect.
The ceiling used throughout the room was plain gypsum. So much was going on in the room in terms of design elements that it was best to leave the ceiling plain, which the designer rightfully did. To light up the room recessed lights of a 4” diameter were used.
This unique bedroom is ideally suited for wood lovers and for people who like sleeping on high beds.
