Finally a brand new interior post! I missed them. Bedroom: one of the most important parts of the house for anyone, and it’s not hard to see why. When you have a decent and lovely bedroom to retire to, it can often make the days a lot better.
No matter what your bedroom is currently like, if you are thinking of what you can do to improve it, there are a huge number of possibilities. In this post, we are going to look at some of the major elements behind the best bedroom improvements. Consider the following if you are keen to improve your bedroom today.
It might go without saying, but a good bedroom has a decent amount of space in it. This is one of those things that can make a real big difference – but it can often be challenging trying to make space in what is often one of the relatively smaller rooms. Clearly, it is more important here than anywhere else that we manage to find space. The good news is that there are plenty of ways of doing just that. Modern beds often have space underneath which is easily accessible, and that can be a useful storage solution, thus freeing up space in the room itself.
Similarly, going for in-built wardrobes is always going to help, as is limiting the amount that you actually keep in there in the first place. If you de-clutter, or perhaps bag some things up for the basement (or loft…) then you can have much more space in the one room that really deserves it.
If your bedroom is not comfortable, then you could well argue that it is a failing bedroom. However, even achieving comfort can be surprisingly tricky when you are improving your bedroom. The most important part of this, obviously enough, is the bed itself. If you are someone who values comfort highly in your bedroom – as you should – then there is really no excuse not to treat yourself to a Puffy mattress for your bed. The size of the bed is important in comfort too.
Generally, it would be advised to go for the biggest bed you can possibly fit in your room. After all, why not? You might also decide to have a few other furniture items dotted around the room, just to add to the comfort level. If you do this, be sure not to overcrowd the room, as that actually takes away from your comfort quite considerably.
It is definitely a huge plus if you are able to accurately control the temperature in your bedroom, but in many homes this is sadly not the case. But if you are thinking of renovating, then introducing room-by-room thermostat controls might be a particularly good idea. This means you can be pleasantly cool in summer and delightfully warm in winter – something which every bedroom benefits from hugely. Get this right, and your whole room just might come alive in its own unique way.
Any good design ideas to add?
