Our bedroom is our ultimate escape from the rest of the world.  Whatever the size of the room it must be tranquil and comfortable to ensure a proper nights’ sleep as well as a space to relax and revive.

There are many ways to create the perfect bedroom without spending huge amounts of money – most importantly it should be an ordered, tidy and uncluttered environment which will immediately make you fell calmer and more relaxed.

Plan the room carefully making sure you have plenty of storage space for clothes, shoes, laundry, etc., out of sight.  Apart from wardrobes and chests of drawers there are many clever storage ideas available - use ottomans/blanket boxes and bed bases as additional storage for linen, towels, etc. 

Also, make sure there is enough room around the furniture to move comfortably.

We spend over a third of our lives in bed, so choose your mattress carefully. Nowadays many companies offer free trial periods, but ideally try mattresses out before you buy and invest in a good divan base with storage.

Headboards are a key element in bedroom design and there are so many custom-made and ready-made options available – they make sitting up in bed more comfortable and they give a room luxury boutique hotel feel.

Colour Schemes and Fabrics

Using shades of blues and greens have been shown to lower one’s blood pressure and provide the calming affects of nature.  These can be teamed beautifully with warm pinks and corals, which is very on trend.

We love the current trend for botanical and nature inspired wallpapers combined with soft full-length curtains in a complimentary colour (with blackout linings) and a plush upholstered headboard with a velvety textured fabric.

Quality, natural fibre bed linen helps to keep your temperature regular when you sleep.
