Not every owner can boast a large apartment, but anyone can create a stylish interior with the existing meters. Even if it is part of the room, allocated for a closed recreation area. Conceiving and realizing the design of a bedroom without windows, you should take into account the features and nuances that will help make the interior comfortable and cozy, and sleep in such a room is strong and full.
Partition for a bedroom without windows
Partial redevelopment helps to allocate part of the living space under the bedroom. It consists in creating a partition that will separate the rest of the space from the resting place. In some cases, it is enough to hang the usual curtain that closes the small bedroom at night from prying eyes. A light wall of plasterboard will become more solid, as shown in the photo.
Given that the small room is devoid of natural street lighting, designers advise not to make such a partition integral. It will be reasonable to make a plasterboard wall not up to the ceiling, leaving 20 - 30 cm above. You can also use a tall cabinet as one of the partitions.
A large room, separated by a glass partition, visually looks like a single room. You can use transparent sheet glass, plastic, or choose your favorite shades and patterns. The plotted image will hide the interior of the bedroom, but will not allow it to be dark, letting light through from the other half of the room. An example of the design of a small bedroom without a window with a glass partition in the photo.
Exit from the room can be made in the form of ordinary doors or compartment doors, moving aside, heavy curtains or arches.
The walls of the bedroom without a window
In order not to turn a room without a window into something like an attic or pantry, we decorate it in rich colors. There will be no mistake and preference for light colors. But it is the rich and deep shades that will make the dull space bright and warm, even in the absence of natural light. Such rooms look cozy and stylish. One has only to properly position the additional lighting, so that it has a positive effect on the brightness and richness of the chosen color of the walls, as in the photo.
Having decided to design in light pastel colors, you need to choose which palette to prefer, warm or cold. Then you can use in the interior and dark colors, but only to create accents in the decoration.
Buying wallpaper for pasting, do not trust the bright patterns with large patterns. They visually reduce the size of the room. The most convenient option - low-key prints of neutral tones, for example, geometric, vegetable, striped.
In the design of the room without windows it is better to use materials with a smooth texture and a simple concise design. Volumetric surfaces are not suitable for such an interior. They look better in rooms lit by the sun. In addition, they have the ability to visually reduce space.
For wall decoration, a good choice will be ordinary paper or fabric wallpaper. You can choose materials for painting or simply apply the color you like on the walls. Suitable for a room without windows fine and medium-grained plaster. But the paneling is undesirable, since it will lead to a violation of the integrity of the surface and will hide part of the lighting. You can see examples of wall decoration in the interior design of a bedroom without windows in the photo.
The interior of a small bedroom without windows requires a light ceiling, usually white or pastel. Design in dark colors in such a room will create an oppressive feeling of a small confined space, which can adversely affect the psyche.
The light color of the ceiling visually increases the space. Plain white or decorative plaster, light wallpaper, plastic panels are perfectly combined with artificial stucco, which is placed around the perimeter of the ceiling or allocate a central zone with a chandelier.
And if you come up with an interesting drywall construction for the interior, you can turn on the LED lighting or spotlights around the perimeter, which is required in this kind of room. There is another modern ceiling design option - a suspended structure that allows you to make the design of the room unusual and creative.
In a small bedroom without a window, ventilation options are necessarily considered. This may be a hole with a grate in the bottom of one of the adjacent walls. Or the partition, not reaching a ceiling of centimeters on 30 - 40. Or the usual conditioner.
We select furniture
The positive point for a room without a window is that the furniture can be arranged where it is convenient. Well, when the area allows you to put all the items of a bedroom set. But even if the owners are limited in meters, you need to accommodate a bed, bedside tables. When choosing a cabinet, preference is given to the version with frosted-glass compartment doors. It significantly saves the usable area and can serve as one of the partitions.
The central figure of the bedroom is the bed. No matter how much you want to have a gorgeous bed, you should proceed from reality and the availability of square meters. And the choice of a particular model depends on the style decision of the room. The design of a bedroom without windows is usually made in several simple directions, although much depends on the owners here. Nothing prevents to create an oriental tale in this room with the help of drapery from fabric and a low bed with a lot of pillows. Or imitate refined French rococo boudoir. But for a simple design, a platform bed or a plain wooden model with built-in storage boxes is more suitable.
If there is no room in the room for other pieces of furniture, books, accessories, and various necessary fines can be laid out on shelves or open shelves at the head of the bed, as in the photo.
Creating a bedroom without windows, you need to adhere to the rule: this room does not tolerate a lot of furniture. A great solution would be to use transformed elements with hidden boxes and niches for things.
And if we do not create a window?
Make a window in the room in two ways. If one small family lives in the apartment, it is enough to cut an opening in the interior wall. It will not go out into the street, but will allow the light to flow partially into the room. Such "windows" are closed with curtains or blinds.
The second option, more common, is the creation of false windows or imitation. This is done in the following ways:
- The most non-burdensome option is to buy a special poster or photo wallpaper with a window. Perfectly look on a wall sea or mountain landscapes.
- The design with full imitation assumes a wooden basis. Fasten such a glazed frame on the wall, inside we add photos and wallpapers that you like. Curtains and a pot with a home flower will create a semblance of a real street window.
- A 3-D panoramic window with fluorescent lamps helps to get the illusion of a sunny day. Frosted glass can be used. And the beautiful curtains will finish the imitation and off of the “sunny day” at night.
Lighting a room without a window
Selecting the lighting for the interior of the bedroom, you need to remember that one chandelier in the center of the ceiling does not solve the problem, only emphasizes the closure of the space. Therefore, we consider options with additional light sources. They may be:
- Spotlights around the perimeter of the ceiling eliminate dark corners. If you attach the lamp in the niches, you get a complete illusion of natural lighting.
- The stretch ceiling and halogen bulbs embedded in it, creating a feeling of a starry night sky, will look original.
- Various bedside lamps, wall sconces will be appropriate in the interior.
If to install the lamps hidden from eyes, then it is possible to achieve imitation of natural lighting. They are located behind large pieces of furniture in niches. Such a diffused light gives the atmosphere home comfort. Variants of bedroom design without windows can be seen in the presented photos.
Mirrors for the bedroom without windows
It is in this room that mirrors play a leading role among other methods of visual expansion of space.
They can create a window feel and add depth to the interior. A large overall mirror or several smaller ones, assembled into a single composition, increase the available space visually, making the room brighter due to the reflection of the lamps. Examples look at the photo.
A very interesting trick for a bedroom without windows is to glue the mirror panels to the ceiling. Reflected diffused light will make the room brighter and lighter. For the same purpose small lamps are mounted on the mirror surface.
If there is no window in the room, and there is no desire to create a design with its imitation, you can choose one item that will become the so-called focal point. It will attract all the attention to itself, which means that the absence of some things will not become so noticeable. Make a visual emphasis on the following:
- a large, flat, illuminated aquarium;
- fireplace with built-in heating and lighting;
- large-format picture with or without a frame;
- bright cover or other items, examples in the photo.
Brilliant materials fit well into such a room, be it furniture furnishings or chrome-plated and brass vases, trays, figurines.
