Perhaps more than any other room in the house, bedroom window ideas really matter. Not only do they need to keep the light out while we sleep and in those early hours of the morning, but they also need to let light in to ensure a bright, happy feel as day breaks.

In addition, bedroom design also needs to take into account the need for privacy in this room – a space in which you are likely to be getting dressed and undressed in needs a way of keeping out prying eyes.
