Grandparents bedroom design ideas for your home

Thinking of celebrating grandparents’ day? Why not surprise them with these creative bedroom ideas? We’re sure that they’ll absolutely love them

If your grandparents live at your place, you are blessed! Not many of us have the privilege of living with our meemaws and peepaws. However, if you do, you must leave no stone unturned to show how much you love having them. Especially on this grandparents’  day! Yes, the 12th of September is grandparents’ day, and we are here to help you throw them a great surprise!

So, if your grandparents live at your place, why not celebrate their love by redesigning their room? Your grandparents are at a very peaceful part of their life and hence, they deserve a quiet and cosy place where they can rest and chill. Therefore, their rooms must have the right furniture and decorations that make them feel right at home and deeply loved by the family. And while designing their bedroom, you must consider their lifestyle and incorporate your grandparents’ preferences and personalities.

Apart from this, some other factors that you need to consider when undertaking your grandparents’ bedroom transformation are:

  • Easy Accessibility And Functionality Of The Space: Minimal but multifunctional furniture of optimal height (chest of drawers, bedside table, a pair of armchairs, etc.) so that your grandparents can easily move around in the bedroom, swing door with sleek pull handles or sliding-door wardrobes, doors with lever handles, etc.
  • Safety And Security Of The Space: Use skid-resistant floors (preferably wood), no loose carpets or rugs.
  • Level Of Comfort In The Space: Bed with a considerable height so that it levels at your grandparents’ knees, place the wardrobe in a corner, a potted green plant or two to bring nature indoors (preferably natural air purifying plants).
  • Level Of Lighting In The Space: Focus more on natural lighting through large windows, bedside lamps or dim night lights with two-way light switches, recessed or cove ceiling lights to avoid overstraining their eyes.

Design Aesthetics: Light to warm colour theme (brown, white, gold, light yellow) to keep your grandparents’ minds agile and cheerful, cleaner dimensions and softer edges, no shiny patterns and surfaces, decluttered and simple decor style.
