One third of your life is spent sleeping. It is, therefore, important to make your bedroom ooze relaxation by designing your room to reflect your own personal style to create a comfortable atmosphere. The key piece of furniture for your bedroom is of course, a bed! You need to decide on size, the mattress firmness and bedding. What headboard material would you like? What colour bed would you like? You need to choice carefully as your bed is the centre point of your bedroom and where you need to be able to get a good night’s sleep. If you need extra storage, an ottoman bed should be considered as they are practical without you having to compromise on aesthetics. That being a said, a bedroom is not a bedroom without a few other furnishings.
A chair in the corner of your bedroom to enjoy your morning coffee or to relax whilst reading a book is definitely a must have, especially when it is positioned by a window. Whilst we are talking about chairs, the Chesterfield Company offers a wide range of chairs to suit any size bedroom to act as a great accent piece to compliment your bedroom’s décor. If your bedroom is quite small, a tub chair is the perfect size to add to your bedroom. However, if you have a large bedroom with plenty of space, a wing back chair could be more of an option. Once more, a chair gives your room that cosy feeling which is important to help you unwind.
A Bedside table
Not only are they decorative, they are also very practical for storage. They are very versatile which is ideal for those night time essentials. This reduces clutter in your bedroom whilst also being functionable. You can put a lamp on it so you don’t have to get out of bed to turn the light off or so you can have a glass of water at arm’s reach. However, the height of the table should be considered because if it is too high or low, they could become more of a nuisance rather than a convenience. Ideally, a table which is the level with the top of your mattress is the perfect height as it creates a nice visual line with your bed. In addition, bed side tables help to anchor your bed so your room looks complete with a neat, finished look. Before purchasing a bedside table, you need to ask yourself how much storage you would like to increase the functionality of it.
The most essential type of storage in a bedroom is a wardrobe and possibly a chest of draws. In order to make your bedroom clutter free, it is important to carefully select the right wardrobe for you in terms of the space it has to offer. A bedroom where clothes aren’t on show makes the room look neat and organised which is important to get a good night’s sleep. A cluttered room can negatively affect your brain which is not ideal, especially in your bedroom. To utilise space in your bedroom, fitted wardrobes could be seen as a better option to free standing wardrobes as they are tailored to fit your space, especially if you have an awkward shaped bedroom. If you are lucky enough to have enough space for an ottoman, then these are a great piece of furniture to store clean bedding, pillows etc. Be sure to choice storage furnishings like a wardrobe which blend in with your bedroom interior as you don’t want it to be the focal point of your room!
Although this isn’t an essential for some, a lot of people, like to have somewhere to store makeup and accessories etc to get ready in the morning. They are ideal to keep your personal items in a dedicated space so everything is in one place so you are less likely to lose things. Not only does this increase storage space so less items are on display, but a dressing table can also be used for different needs. It could double up as a bedside table if your bedroom isn’t big enough or could even be used as a desk to work at. A dressing table mirror to compliment the table would make your bedroom look more spacious as they give an illusion of depth as they reflect both artificial and natural light; this goes for any mirror in your bedroom.
