If there’s one piece of furniture that signifies a grown-up bedroom, it’s a sleek headboard or bed frame. Just like beautiful bedding, a sturdy bed frame with a fun headboard instantly adds personality and polish. Plus, it provides extra support for leaning back with a good book in bed.
A quality mattress is a long-term investment that pays for itself over time. When shopping for mattresses, consider factors such as mattress size, materials, and support before making the final purchase. Depending on the size of your room as well as your personal needs, you can choose between coir mattresses, orthopedic mattresses or a spring mattress.
While updating a bedroom’s walls and furniture can take a hefty budget, you can always count on good, comfy bedding as a surefire way to brighten up your bedroom. A well-matched bedspread also seems much more intentional in terms of design and decoration.
A bed with just two standard pillows can feel a bit sparse and empty, so you can add a few extra textured pillows. You can also play with different shapes available in pillows, including wooden pillows, bolsters and more. Cushions and pillows will add warmth to your bed and make it more inviting.
Nightstands or bedside tables are as essential as a bed in your bedroom. Necessary for placing smartphones, alarm clocks and a glass of water, they act as an extension of the bed frame in detail. The perfect nightstand will provide space for bedside storage and should also be the correct height in relation to your bed. The type of nightstand and the amount of storage space you choose can depend on your needs and personal style. But when it comes to styling the surface, limit items to a few essentials to avoid clutter, like an alarm clock, lamp, tote for your accessories, or a charging station for all your gadgets.
Curtains are a must for bedrooms as they serve both aesthetic and functional purposes. Any type of furnishing will add warmth and comfort to the look of your bedroom and for light sleepers a blackout curtain will provide both privacy and shade from outside lights. For your bedroom, you can choose curtains that have a subtle texture and can filter the sunlight when you need an afternoon nap. For a more dynamic approach, you can choose curtains that pull colors from your pillows and other furniture.
Whether you opt for a chest of drawers or a full-fledged wardrobe, closed storage in a bedroom is a must. A wardrobe will accommodate all your needs and add to the visual appeal of your room. You can also opt for a mirrored cabinet to add functionality to the doors. A wardrobe with sliding doors will save space in a cramped room and will also be much easier to use. Other storage options in a bedroom include robes, clothes racks, wall shelves, wall hooks, baskets, and bed boxes. The space under the bed can also be used as a storage space to keep the floor space clear.
A twin bench or sofa will add more seating beyond your bed. A bench at the end of your bed will give you space to put your bags, take off/put on your shoes and space to just sit down. If you’re short on storage, opt for a bench that opens up to ample storage space below to hold extra pillows, furniture, and blankets.
Bedrooms should not only be functional rooms, they can also be a space for personal expression. From live plants to favorite artwork, there’s so much you can do to add visual appeal to the bedroom. For starters, plants and flowers are a great option for brightening up sleeping space details. Low-maintenance succulents are a great option. If you are short on floor space for plants, you can also opt for hanging planters and floating shelves. Art frames above the headboard create a focal point that balances the room. Walls aren’t the only space that needs a little love, you can also decorate your dresser, bedside table and more. Your favorite books and perfume bottles, pretty ceramics that you love and vases with fresh flowers, beautiful trays and jewelry holders. These are all perfect items that you can display on your dresser to create a warm and lived-in ambiance.
