According to the rules for zoning living space bedrooms combine into a single sleeping area. She should be quiet and calm. Therefore, it is separated from the zone of daytime stay in various ways. If the house is single-storey, its layout is often designed in such a way that between the sleeping block and the living room there is a hallway or technical area.
Attic wooden houses are the most popular today. In them, zoning is very simple - the first floor is reserved for guest and technical rooms, and bedrooms are located in the attic. With this planning decision, the bedrooms get protection from both the sounds from the living room and from street noise.
Bedroom, as a room intended for rest and for night sleep, requires a special approach in creating the interior. The design of the bedroom in a wooden house should also correspond to the general style of the building. In order for the room to harmoniously fit into the architecture of the log house, and at the same time fully performing its functions, natural materials of muted natural shades must be used in its decoration and furnishings.
The design of the bedroom in a wooden house is very picky about the correct allocation of space. The main element of the interior here is the bed. It should be positioned so that there is enough space nearby for passage. In the spacious room you can freely arrange additional furniture - a wardrobe, dressing table, side tables, chairs, etc. In a small bedroom it is better to put only the most necessary piece of furniture, and leave some free space, otherwise the room will look overloaded and cramped.
Creating a bedroom design in the house from a log or a bar it is necessary to think over the following moments well:
materials for decoration of walls, floor and ceiling;
color composition i of the entire interior;
architectural style ;
The walls, floor and ceiling of the bedroom in a wooden cottage can be fully or partially covered with plaster or wallpaper. But usually, decorating the interior of the bedroom in a wooden house, homeowners prefer to leave the noble wood texture. Here it must be borne in mind that dark-colored wood, like any dark-colored finish, has the property of "eating" space. That is, visually a room with dark surfaces looks smaller. Therefore, for compact bedrooms, the interior is made of light wood.
If it is decided to use a dark wood inside the room, it is advisable to make one or two walls smooth and light. This can be done by painting or plastering walls previously sheathed, for example, with gypsum plasterboard. Another option is to “dilute” an overabundance of saturated tree shades with light textiles and furniture of light pastel colors. Still, as an option, just a bedroom with a wooden wall is made.

The interior of a bedroom in a wooden house is usually solved using a limited ensemble of inconspicuous colors. However, this design may be too boring. You can refresh it with a single accent element that will not come into the view of a person lying on a bed. For example, you can hang a bright painting over the head of the bed, or put an original floor lamp next to the bed.
It should be noted that the color composition of the room for sleeping should be in harmony with the character and temperament of the owners. So, for energetic and temperamental people, it is better to use more juicy shades in the living room, but in the bedroom they should have absolute relaxation. Otherwise, due to the nature of the character, it will be difficult for the inhabitants of the bedroom to cope with emotional over-stimulation and switch to rest. And vice versa - for people who are calm by nature, it is desirable to have a slightly invigorating color scheme in the bedroom, at which it will be easier for them to get into work mode in the morning.
Lighting in the bedroom should be thought out in advance, even at the design stage. The fact is that the bedroom, in fact, is a multifunctional room. Adjustable artificial light in 2 or 3 levels makes it easy to change the mood of the room. At least in the bedroom there should be a ceiling light and a pair of night lamps.
