Thinking about redesigning your bedroom? Here are three amazing tips you should follow:
Get The Bed Right
The key component in a bedroom is the bed. After all, the bed is where you sleep in. And no, before you say anything, it isn’t point out the obvious day! All jokes aside, the bed is very important when you’re creating a bedroom. Firstly, you have to decide on the size and style of your bed. Are you going to go sleek and modern and have a metal frame bed? Or perhaps a bit more rustic and get a polished wood frame. If you’re living in the country like me, then a wooden bed frame can give you that rural feel!
Then, you move onto the mattress type. Now then, getting your mattress right is very important. You don’t want a mattress that’s too soft, or one that’s too hard. If you have a single bed, then natural single mattresses would be great for you. If you have a double bed, then obviously make sure you get a double mattress! At the end of the day, ‘mattress feel’ depends on the person. I may like one mattress, and you may hate it. Have a test run on some mattresses in a store before you commit to buying. Additionally, keep in mind the importance of a mattress topper while you are purchasing a mattress. Though it might sound to be a very trivial aspect, it can play an important role in adding more years to the life of your mattress. How, you ask? Since a mattress topper is more affordable than a new mattress, you can subject it to more wear and tear. Moreover, dusting a mattress topper is comparatively easier than cleaning a mattress. However, you need to be aware of the quality of a topper before purchasing it. Therefore, learning about durability, breathability and density of different mattress toppers could be a good idea. For that, you can either consult an expert in the field of ‘somnolence’, or read up relevant articles available on the Internet.

Create The Perfect Lighting
I find that lighting is very important in the bedroom – more so than any other room in the house. The key to good bedroom lighting is making sure you can set the mood depending on how you feel. Fairy lights aren’t just for Christmas; they can create perfect lighting in the bedroom. With the lights turned off and fairy lights on, it’s very dimly lit and romantic.
Also, think about getting some lamps to put on tables or bedside cabinets in the room. I think lamps next to the bed are great. This is because you can have them on and do a little reading without having to get up and turn the lights on. Plus, a dimly lit lamp can set a peaceful tone in the room.
My final piece of lighting advice is to get some candles for your bedroom. Not only do they create a unique light, but they can smell nice too. There’s something relaxing about candlelight; it just makes you feel at peace with the world.
You’ll find that there are certain things you need in a bedroom, and things that you don’t. For example, you won’t need a coffee table in your room. Just, why? Why would you even think of putting one there?!
Secondly, you’re going to need things like cupboards and a drawers to store clothes. Unless, of course, you have a large closet to keep them in. Then, you may need something like a large dresser complete with a mirror. I think it’s fair to say this furniture is pretty unique to a bedroom, no one has a dresser in any other room!
The important thing is to furnish appropriately and don’t overdo it. If you crowd your bedroom with too much furniture, it will look horrible. It’ll start to feel cramped, and you won’t like being in the room.
