When it comes to designing the bedroom, creating a calm, relaxing space to retreat to is always top priority. Giving thought to a few key areas during the bedroom planning process will ensure that you create a bedroom that will envelop you in warmth and tranquility as soon as you step inside.
Colour is key to creating a relaxing bedroom. Popular colour schemes include the timeless trend of shades of grey, or opt for natural tones, lots of paint ranges offer beautiful natural paint collections that are perfect for creating a serene space. Pastels are a popular choice for a calm and peaceful bedroom. Or choose the bang up to date trend of this seasons shades of blue for a tranquil vibe.
Evaluate your belongings and think about what you need your storage to hold. Your bedroom should be a clutter free space that’s organised and allows you to relax. Your storage needs to be visually pleasing to look at and have a space for everything you own. Think about adding shoe storage, a place for hats, bags, scarves, plenty of hanging space. At the end of the day, the storage should close and hide away all your clutter. Where space is limited it’s a good idea to choose a bed which can also offer storage. We like the Button & Sprung Poppy bed.
The most important part of the bedroom is the bed. It should be beautiful to look at and as comfortable as possible. Put time and effort into choosing a bed, we love the upholstered beds from Button & Sprung, they ooze a luxurious comforting vibe and are custom built with a choice of bed size, base type, headboard, fabric and feet, so will fit into your bedroom scheme effortlessly.
Your mattress should be the best you can afford, after all it’s your bed, you’ll be spending a lot of time snuggled up in it. Button & Sprung offer a range of mattresses using their unique IQ spring system which means even if you and your partner are different sizes you’ll experience the same level of comfort and support. The mattresses are filled with 100% natural fillings a blend of wool, hemp, cotton and flax goes into their handmade mattresses. And with a 100 night return policy, you really will sleep well.
Think about bed linen, adding layers with beautiful warm woollen blankets and throws and add interest and added comfort with statement cushions and bolsters.
When you eventually do get out of your bed it’s nice to step onto a warm fluffy surface. Bedrooms feel more airy and spacious with hard wood flooring, but add snuggly rugs right by the bed.
Choose window dressings that are light and airy so that natural light can flood in during the daytime. But you may choose to opt for blinds also to help aid a restful nights sleep.
Tantalise your senses
Choose bedroom accessories that are beautiful for look at and inspire happiness. Perhaps a vase of pretty flowers, or a stunning piece of art or photography.
Have windows you can throw open and fill the room with fresh air daily. Think about scents, choose some deliciously scented candles that will fill the room with warming curls of relaxing scent.
Make sure you have textiles that are soft and feel good against the skin.
And finally choose different levels of lighting, you need a bright light for dressing and focused tasks like applying make-up, a light you can read by and also more intimate cosy lighting, that can maybe include beautiful strings of fairy lights or low level lamps.
