Choosing the right pieces for your bedroom
Bedrooms are often a room commonly associated with relaxation and when furnished and decorated correctly you can create a stress-free sanctuary where you can escape the everyday buzz of life.
Setting the tone can often be a challenge, but with a quick makeover you can transform even the smallest of spaces into a beautiful getaway.
As you redesign you bedroom be sure to consider that your suite is about you so try not to pay too much attention to popular trends particularly when it comes to furniture.
Consider space, colour schemes and what items you require and want. Often once you’ve decided on dressing tables, beds and bed side tables, space can often get cramped so it is better to get a clear balance to enable you to set the right ambience.
The right pieces
Most bedrooms have the staple pieces – bed, wardrobe, bed side table and chest of drawers. However if you want to create more of a master suite you could consider additional pieces such as a dressing table or sideboard for extra elegance.
It is crucial to select furniture that is durable and serves a purpose. You will often find that pieces of a trend are snazzy and look nice but aren’t efficient in terms of storage or space and will often go out of fashion quickly.
If you have a lot of clothes to hang, consider a triple wardrobe made of a hard-wearing material such as pine or oak, not only will a piece like this provide a better storage solution and further space efficiency but it will last longer and be able to hold more.
Consider the all-hanging triple wardrobe from the Lundy collection, not only is it made from solid pine with an oak top but it also sports a high quality painted finish so is stylish too.
The size of a bedroom dictates how many pieces you can place into your bedroom so make sure to take clear measurements of both the furniture you want and the spaces you want to put them in.
Leave plenty of walking spaces and check that furniture with drawers and doors have enough space to be open fully.
When you pick your bed positioning consider windows and doors for draughts and light. While a king sized bed may seem a luxurious choice when it comes to sleeping, it may not fit fully, meaning you may want to downsize to a double. You may also want to consider how solid you want the frame to be. Are you likely to want to be changing the design within the next few years or wanting an investment piece? The size of the frame can also dictate where the bed is placed and whether it will fit.
A solid oak bed frame provides a traditional look and will be long lasting; we offer a variety of oak bed frames from Rustic through to contemporary, while the Lundy bed frames offer luxurious hand painted finishes which offer opportunities to make a statement.
While most high street retailers will sell bedroom furniture as full sets it is important to consider individual pieces which you can fashion into your own designs.
