Your bedroom should be your own personal escape. It’s the last thing you see at the end of the day, and it’s the first place you cast your eyes over when you wake up. But too often it’s neglected when it comes to redesign and redecoration – it’s not a public space after all…

But we think it’s time to change all that! When it comes to creating your own haven, we have all the best tips and tricks to help guide you in creating your perfect relaxing bedroom…

What furniture works best in my bedroom?

We know that choosing new bedroom furniture can seem a bit of a daunting process at first; no one wants to go through the buying process to find that their new pieces just don’t work in their room. But we think, with the right tools and preparation, it can be a really exciting time!

Before you even start shopping, ask yourself these questions:

  • What are you looking to improve in your room? Storage? Comfort?
  • What (exactly) do you need?
  • How big is your room? How is it shaped?
  • What’s your budget?
  • How long do you want the pieces to last?
  • What’s your decorating style? Do you want matching or mixed pieces?

And don’t forget about the bed! We spend about a third of our lives sleeping, and the wrong bed or mattress spells a lot of sleepless nights. It’s not only about the bed either – finding the best mattress to support your back, or choosing the right nightstand to meet your before-bed and morning routines can be just as hard. We help to make it easy to find the right pieces with our guide to Choosing the Right Bedroom Furniture.
