Hide CaptionShow CaptionThe key to creating a great bedroom is what designers call the "elements of design." That means to build a working space, you need to first break it down. And that all boils down to function.
To combine objects to create a pleasing whole, you have to first inventory the basics. That's easy enough: You need a bed for comfortable, healthy sleep. You need nightstands that are reachable from the bedside (the correct distance is about four to eight inches) and are the right height. If you must have a TV in your bedroom, you need a beautiful place to house (and hide) it. And you need a logical safe traffic flow so you don't go bump in the night.
