On the photomurals you can find Chinese sages, geisha, brave warriors and scenes of battles with their participation, mythical creatures, gods and even demons. Skinali - an element of decoration that "migrated" to bedrooms from kitchens, usually occupies only part of the wall, and the drawings have a plant-natural theme, for example, cherry blossoms are often found. The same can be said for partitions and panels, which can be used to decorate walls in fragmentary mode.

Speaking of the ceiling, the choice of finishes will depend on the area of ​​the room and its height. If the room is small and the ceilings are not high, you should stop on a flat suspended, tension or plasterboard structure. If the bedroom has a sufficient number of squares and high ceilings, you can trim them with multi-level structures or wooden beams. Moreover, the latter can be located in a square in the center or strictly along the perimeter. It is possible to form a lattice from the beams into which point lighting elements will be mounted. Interior neon or LED lighting will also look good.

General principles of organizing space and decoration

Based on this, the main principles of its organization should be named:

  • maximum free space;
  • absolute symmetry;
  • restraint;
  • harmony and balance.
  • Symmetry applies to everything, and above all to furniture. The bed should take center stage. If a bedside table is installed on one side, then exactly the same should be on the other side. For example, you should not place all decorative elements on the same wall: their arrangement should balance each other. And we shouldn't forget that a Chinese-style bedroom can be furnished and decorated according to the laws of feng shui. This can be done based on the photos presented here, as well as on the advice of experienced orientalists.

    • a small decorative fountain (active);
    • lanterns hanging from the ceiling, traditional swords, bells;
    • lamps with corrugated paper lampshades.
    • Very often on one of the walls of the Chinese bedroom there is a painted installation with symbols traditional for the East: cherry blossoms, bamboo, the sun, hieroglyphs for “love”, “strength”, “health”, “longevity”, “wealth”, a labyrinth. The last symbol is no less important for the Chinese than hieroglyphs and the sun. It can even be painted on the ceiling as a "mirror image" on the floor, and the shelves can be arranged in a maze shape.

      In the Chinese tradition, there are several well-established color combinations, any of which can be chosen as the base for the design of the future bedroom. Namely, black with gold (a sign of high social status), green with beige, white with blue, red with orange, brown with yellow. The Chinese color range is vast, so everyone can find something suitable for their inner state.

      The Chinese style is extremely natural, so the window frames, like the doors, in the bedroom should be wooden, and the windows themselves should be as large as possible. Openings can be made in three ways:

      • blinds made of bamboo or snow-white textile threads;
      • Roman blinds;
      • the lightest medium-density curtains, either plain, or duplicating the pattern on the wall, bedding, etc.

        The interior of a Chinese-style bedroom is very fond of space and light, so the installation of lighting should be as thoughtful as possible. Bright fluorescent lamps, bulky chandeliers will not work here. In the photos that we offer you, you can see that very often such interiors use hidden lighting around the perimeter of the ceiling, point elements that simulate natural lighting, as well as lamps with lampshades in the form of paper lanterns. The color can be different: naturally white, reddish, yellowish, but not necessarily straining the eyes, causing calm and harmonious pacification.
