Bedtime Bombardment:

5 Mistakes People Make When Setting Up Their Bedroom

Setting up a room is always exciting, and none so much as the bedroom. Your bedroom is your palace, and should be exactly as you want it to be, with your interests at heart and your layout enforced. This is true for many people, although some find their rooms ending up as more tedious obstacle courses than safe havens of plenty.

Little things, like getting a new Koala Mattress, or buying a second-hand television, can make your room more comfortable and homelike, and to aid in that feeling. We’ve compiled a list of common mistakes people make when setting up their bedrooms, to help you avoid these catastrophic cliches.

Window Angles

When setting out your bedroom, pay close attention to the windows. These should be your primary source of light during the day, and (if applicable) a source of fresh air to move through your room with nicer temperatures. Don’t block these with large drawers or other furniture items, as this basically makes them little more than backing lights to whatever you have placed in front of them. Also be wary of where you place your bed in conjunction with them, as you don’t want to be woken up at dawn every morning by a beam of sunlight coming through your curtains and accurately hitting you in the eye.

Airflow Extraction

Another important point to remember is that air moving through your room is a good way to avoid stuffiness and dust buildup, both of which can hinder the peaceful mindset that should accompany your room. If you can get a room with windows that open, this becomes very easy and essentially makes the process of airing out your room as easy as opening a window.

Powerpoint Placement

Many bedrooms will only have one powerpoint in them, which seems like terrible planning in most house-construction stages. However, if your house was constructed late in the last century, there wasn’t as great a need for electricity, as you’d probably only be plugging in a lamp or alarm clock. To maximise your electricity spread, try to place the powerpoint out in the open, and then make use of extension cables and multi-port adapters to allow for more devices at once, while still allowing direct access to the outlet.

Ease of Escape

You never think your den of safety and comfort will need to be left in a hurry, but it’s always good to plan for the worst and hope for the best. When setting up your room, try not to place too much furniture blocking or visually obscuring the door if you can help it. In the event of an emergency like a fire or an earthquake, you will need to get out quickly, which can be hard if you’re also navigating a maze of objects and clothes strewn about everywhere.

The Little Things

Last but definitely not least, the things! In the setting-up stages, new sheets and a new mattress can make the whole room feel and smell brand new, and adds to the psychological side of enjoying your new room. Bringing in some interesting things like a TV and dvd player can give you something to do if you need to escape to your room for a few hours, or placing a computer in your room can provide hours of entertainment only meters away from your bed.

These are all things to keep in mind, but in the end, the room is yours to do with what you will. Bedrooms reflect an inner part of ourselves, and as such, only your opinion of it matters in the long run.
