The bedroom is, arguably, one of the most important rooms in the house. Getting a good night’s sleep is important for your mental and physical well being. Nobody wants to go to a full day of work feeling tired.
Maybe you have just moved to a new place or are getting bored of your current bedroom setup. The question now becomes how you overhaul it and what kinds of things you should consider – especially if you only want to change a few things.
In this article, we’ll take a look at some of the most important aspects of a bedroom you should consider changing in your overhaul.
The Bed Frame and Headboard
There’s no point in having a great bedroom with a great bed. And while the mattress gets a lot of attention, the frame it sits on, and the headboard are equally important for creating optimal comfort.
You want to go for something solid that’ll stand the test of time. Some good, sustainable materials to consider are oak, hardwood, and softwood. While things like composite wood, fibreboard, or plywood might be materials you’d want to skip on.
When it comes to the headboard, you want something that will cushion any midnight blows and so going for something solid may not be the best of ideas. Try to find a headboard that is sturdy but padded.
While we are on the subject of the bed;
Get A Spectacular Mattress
This might almost go without saying, but the mattress is critical when it comes to getting a new bed.
There are so many different types of mattresses because people consider different things comfy. Some folks like a sturdier mattress for support while others prefer things like memory foam.
Hunter Furnishing has a great variety of mattresses to consider and are a good place to begin looking.
A Side Table Designed For You
Almost every bedroom will have at least one side table next to the bed. If we are talking a double, queen size, or king-size, then most likely two side tables.
They are important to have because they are essentially your organisation tool for getting up every morning. But like the other two entries on this list so far, it falls down to the individual and what they want as opposed to what looks good.
Style is important but functionality even more so. There’s no point in getting a side table with three storage drawers if you aren’t going to use them. Choose a side table for its functionality and how you intend to use it as the primary deciding factor.
This aspect of bedroom design doesn’t get enough attention. You can’t just have any old light – especially if it is a ceiling fixture.
Having the wrong lampshade on a ceiling fixture, for example, can direct light into your eyes while relaxing on your bed or waking up in the morning. While this can be a good thing for getting up, it has the potential to get very annoying during day-to-day life.
Bedside lamps or ceiling facing lamp shades for ceiling fixtures are a good way to handle this issue. It also allows you to add a little more personal flair to the bedroom!
