Bedroom, sleeping room, dormitory… these names which are given to the area we sleep are different. They mean one thing – the room where you sleep. And there should be one “must” in any dorm – its comfort and nice design. Even a tiny sleeping room of a Men must have a wide comfy bed. It can be a room in a home with rustic design, the area for sleeping in a Neo-modern studio, classic man’s cave or a small zone with a sleeping place in an eclectic apartment. Let us see which of the ideas below will “work” for you.
Modern style for male small bedroom.

- No special lighting requirements.
Classic style for male small bedroom.
In the classic interiors designers use the ideas revealing comfort and luxury of kings’ dorms. The “must” of such a bedroom is a bed with a high headboard, often padded, with silk or tapestry upholstery. It looks always gorgeous and. Rich decoration, heavy velvet curtains ( or window treatments from real silk), soft big pillows and a bed with a decorated headboard are the attributes of a classic bedroom.
The main features of a male bedroom in classic style:
- Many textiles used – carpets, drapes, curtains. Everything is felt luxury.
