Furnishing and Designing Bedrooms for Students Part V
Closets for student bedrooms
As mentioned earlier in this article, the bedroom is usually not only used for sleeping, but also for storing clothes. A wardrobe is usually set up for this purpose. Since the space for this in the student apartment or in the shared room is usually very limited, it is not possible to choose a wardrobe with six or more revolving doors for a large amount of storage space.
Functional wardrobes for student bedrooms
The necessary size of the wardrobe depends on the size of the wardrobe that should be neatly stowed in it. Of course, the space available for the cabinet also plays a role in the selection. Cabinets with sliding doors or sliding doors, for example, save space because you don’t have to plan additional space for opening the doors. However, these cupboards are usually a little deeper than normal wardrobes with revolving doors. If the depth in the student bedroom stands in the way of setting up a regular wardrobe for storing clothes, it is worthwhile to take a look at a bathroom furniture or hall furniture exhibition.

Living ideas: how to make bedrooms cozy for students
“Form follows function” (in German mostly translated as “The form follows the function” – abbreviated as “FFF”) is a design principle that is used in particular in architecture and product design. In principle, the point is that the shape or external form of an object should be derived from its function. Accordingly, one concentrates primarily on the functional aspect and only secondarily takes the shape or form into account. When furnishing a bedroom for students or a small student room or a one-room student apartment, there is often no other choice than to focus first on the function of the room. Comfort can quickly fall by the wayside: bed, bedside table and cupboard, for example, basically turn a room into a bedroom,
So that your student bedroom or student room is not only functionally convincing, but also offers you and your guests a pleasant stay with a feel-good factor, you should also furnish and design your room with homely accessories.
For example, treat yourself to a nice, cozy armchair or an attractive rug. Beautify the walls in the room with selected pictures and create interesting islands of light with cleverly placed floor, wall or table lamps. You should also be wasteful with home textiles such as pillows or plaids. Don’t forget about the window decorations in your student room or bedroom. – With floor-length, loosely and flowing curtains you can “conjure up” extra comfort in the room.
If a very dominant bed sets the tone in your small bedroom and almost completely influences the spatial effect, design a wall in a strong color that you like. Then select your home accessories and textiles to match this wall or color. You will quickly notice how much the character of your room has changed as a result.
Does your bedroom seem too objective and neutral to you? Then you supplement the current, little informative furnishings with (small) furniture and decorative objects with a “clear language” – in other words: in a clear style. With little effort you can, for example, give your student room a natural, modern or country-style touch.
