7 Square area Rug - As our lives become a lot more frenetic, the haven that comfortable bedroom designs offer becomes increasingly more inviting - and not only for sleeping. Tranquil reading, television browsing (for the programs we want to watch), enjoying a peaceful light supper, letter writing - these are all activities that may be best suited compared to that special private space.
Whether accompanied by a partner or not, we have to consider our bedroom the one area where we have been obliged to please no-one but ourselves (the words indulgence and pampering spring to mind). It therefore makes good sense for the 'best' bedroom space and access to dressing and bathroom facilities to be reserved for this purpose.
Finally the advantages of self-containment have been understood. We expect to pay a premium for a hotel suite, so why not plan permanent accommodation on similar lines, with areas set aside for hobbies, calming, dressing, bathing and undoubtedly sleeping?
