Everyone likes their own space from time to time. Even the extrovert among us will have times when they want to get away from the crowd and the noise to think for a moment. It’s not anti-social. It’s just wanting to take a bit of a breath and clear your head for a while, and that’s something that is simply healthy. In any home, it is a good idea for every person who lives there to have their space.
Having your space is one thing. Being comfortable in it is just as important. Some people like a lot of colors, some like a lot of room, while some others like to be tucked in, almost nesting in their space. When it comes to decorating and furnishing a home, this should play a big part in your thinking. Arranging a room right is, in many ways, as important as what you buy.

Option 1: Open Plan, Informal Space
For many reasons, some people like to have a room that is minimal and uncluttered, giving them room to move around. It is an ideal setting for people who like a space to be airy and free. A good way to achieve this is to limit the height of furniture in the room. A small bookcase or two. Maybe a TV on the wall; somewhere to play games to your heart’s content. Bean bags have a more informal approach than furniture, and can be more durable too. If you’re comfortable with the idea, pick your design and find it at Fombag or other experts to complete the look.
Option 2: Cosy Cubby
Some people find that they feel more at home in a room that is less spacious. It may sound odd, but being snug in a smaller space can be relaxing. Not least of all because people are less likely to wander in and out. For the introverts among us, the chance to nest in a small room with a bed, chair and maybe a desk can give us all the comfort and relaxation we need. This works well in a loft room
Option 3: Ensuite Luxury
A room that is self-contained can provide the best of both worlds, with plenty of space to move around in, a place to invite friends into. At the same time, a bathroom within the room can allow you to have all the privacy you crave. The best accessory to take this room from humdrum to perfect? A walk-in closet with plenty of storage space to keep it from getting cluttered. Sometimes you want to hunker down; sometimes you want to move around.
Having your own space in a home is important. Although the communal areas are where most of the best times are had, sometimes all you want is to switch off and have some seclusion. Making sure you have space where you are comfortable to do this can make a place feel like a home. Being able to relax and be yourself is fundamental to being able to live your life. Most importantly, it’s somewhere you can get a decent night’s sleep.
