Sleep put away, relax … and, for the little ones, also play and study. An ideal bedroom has to be multifaceted and, to achieve this, a good distribution is key.
Although etymologically its name means “room in the house to sleep”, the truth is that today the bedrooms are much more than this. These spaces have become the kings of versatility because, in addition to inviting rest, they are sometimes transformed into dressing rooms, part-time study areas, reading areas … This multitasking facet requires an optimal distribution, which allows us to make the most of each area, but without forgetting that its main function continues to be to offer the best breaks. The key: respect the ideal measurements and proportion.
HOW TO DISTRIBUTE A MASTER BEDROOM TO SLEEP, STORE AND RELAX

– The ideal circle. A bedroom will be comfortable if you can draw a circle about 260 cm in diameter. It is the one that would allow you to include a 135 or 150 cm bed and the free space around to move well.

– Waking up with views. Place the bed parallel to or facing the window. Seeing the outside will make you perceive the space larger. Simple as that!
– Disguised closet. The closet is the piece that occupies the most (60 cm deep). Each person needs a body between 80 cm and 1 meter wide to be able to organize their clothes.
Useful measurements in the master bedroom
- Around the bed. Ideally, leave a 60cm space on each side of the bed so that you can access it without juggling.
- From the bed to the closet. The minimum recommended distance is 1 m to open the doors without obstacles. If you do not have enough space, bet on the sliding doors leaving a step of about 80 cm.
- Every hole counts. You can take advantage of the space under the window to create a study area. A board 1 m long and 30 cm deep is enough.

– Custom furniture. Do not hesitate: custom furniture allows you to make the most of the meters, freeing up space. Distribute along the walls to leave a large area in the center to play. The ideal minimum? 150 x 150 cm.
– Where one sleeps … two sleep. If you share a room, a good idea to free up space is the bunk beds. The train type, having the beds displaced, is the most comfortable. And, in addition, they allow you to take advantage of their structure for storage. The only “but” is that they need at least 3m long by 2.20m wide.
– And for the closet … You need a minimum space of 40 cm deep by 120 wide. Choose flexible interiors so you can separate the shelves as they grow and your clothes grow in size.
– From the game to the study. If your children already have more books than toys, consider making them a bookcase no taller than 180 cm and fix it to the wall to gain security.
USEFUL MEASURES IN THE CHILDREN’S BEDROOM
- More than a headboard. A custom-made 8-inch-deep piece of furniture serves as a headboard while also helping to store or as a ledge for the alarm clock, for example.
- Study table. It should be at least 120 cm long x 60 cm wide. In a shared room, add 80 cm of width.
- Shelves. Create with them a bookcase at their height of 30 cm deep. If they are small, for safety do not put them under the window.
