Our bedrooms are where we spend at least a third of our lives, so it’s easy to see why someone would want to optimise this space. Even if you sleep less than 8 hours a day, you may stay in your bedroom for a few extra hours every day, whether just lying down, watching television, or doing whatever you enjoy. It can also be a place to study, do a bit of silent reflection or simply kick back and relax after a long and stressful day at work.
Because it has so many functions and the rest you get there can affect your mood for the rest of the day, it’s essential to decorate your bedroom properly. It will help you get a good night’s sleep and enjoy your precious moments of alone time each day. Bedding can affect your sleep, so this is not something that you want to skimp on. After all, investing in quality bedroom furniture can significantly impact our physical and mental health.
That’s why we’re here today to discuss some furniture ideas for your bedroom and guide you through renovating it to make it look unique and beautiful. Our suggestions will make your bedroom look fantastic and make you not want to leave your bed ever again.
The bedframe and a mattress are the two most important furniture items in your bedroom. These two pieces are the core of every bedroom, and their significance cannot be overstressed. With this in mind, we will suggest a few great bedframes and give you some creative bedroom furniture ideas.
Purchasing a good bedframe is vital because a good bedframe is the foundation of every great bed. You can discover some great bedroom furniture ideas online. For example, velvet blue bedframe not only looks great, but it will suit almost any type of décor. However, if you’re looking for something more neutral, grey is always a great option, such as this light grey one or a dark grey bedframe.
You may want something simple or something that will fit your nature-inspired bedroom. This natural wood bedframe is the right option if that’s the case. Whichever you choose, rest assured that any of these options can be easily assembled and will last a long time.
2. Reading Nook
The bedroom tends to be the quietest place in the house. Since its primary function is sleeping or resting, people are somehow used to making less noise around the bedroom. That’s why this room is the perfect location for your reading nook. It will be your little quiet corner where you can sit back and read your favourite book or magazine.
You don’t need much to make it perfect. Actually, you only need two things. A very comfy chair and a reading lamp. Place the chair somewhere in the corner, preferably next to a window, so you can get a lot of natural light. Make sure to place the reading lamp close to the chair so you can illuminate the pages when it gets dark outside.
Reading nook adds a lot of aesthetical value to your bedroom. Ensure that the set is ergonomically perfect. Rest all this just goes to show that you don’t need much to create a little piece of heaven.
3. Bedside Tables
Has this ever happened to you? You woke up thirsty, went to grab a glass of water, and couldn’t fall back asleep. All this is because you thought you didn’t need a bedside table or wanted to save money.
Although not as crucial as a bedframe or a mattress, bedside tables aren’t just beautiful pieces of furniture. They have one vital function – to keep all those little essentials that you will need before going to bed. If you don’t have a preference when it comes to the bedside table design, we suggest a simple white one like this beautiful, rustic cut-out leg side table.
You can put all your tidbits on a bedside table, such as a glass of water, your phone, a book you were reading, hand cream, or medication. Even if you just use it to put a lamp on it, a bedside table is a simple yet effective furniture item that can make your life easier.
However, if you’re looking for something a bit more stylish but also neutral in appearance, this french bedside table is an excellent option for you and your loved one, as it comes in a set of two. The fact that it comes fully assembled is the cherry on top that makes it highly convenient.
4. Dressing Tables
No bedroom is complete without a dressing table. As accessory furniture, dressing tables have both functional and decorative purposes. They aren’t just a space to get ready for the busy day ahead but also an additional storage solution, with extra space to put all those things you can’t put on a bedside table. They come in many storage options, such as drawers, shelves, or cabinets.
They have a certain old-fashioned elegance, but they can fit a contemporary bedroom without a problem. Combined with a wardrobe of the same colour and style, they can make a bedroom look perfect. Even when mixing styles, they can add character to your bedroom and make it stand out.
For people who like to take their sweet time getting ready or putting on make-up, a dressing table, such as this vanity table stool set, is a godsend. It comes with an LED lighted mirror, and with three colour lighting modes, putting on make-up or taking it off will be effortless. Not to mention the added storage options where you can put jewellery or cosmetics.
5. Chest of Drawers
Most people prefer only selective few pieces in the bedroom. Therefore, storage space is always a concern. There will always be an extra linen or cushions you would like to keep handy in the bedroom. And a chest of drawers can be a perfect place to line them up.
It is a multi-functional furniture piece that can help you keep your bedroom neat and tidy. You can carefully sort children’s toys, bedside books, and other utilities in each drawer of the chest. Variable styles can match your bedroom ambiance and add a hint of classic elegance.
However, you should know that chest drawers come in various shapes, sizes, and materials. Your perfect drawer choice depends on your preferences, lifestyle, budget, and bedroom size. Something too big can take up a lot of space, leaving little room for you to walk around. Similarly, too small of a piece would not fulfill the purpose. So, choose a tall chest like the coastal style set of drawers .
The craftsmanship and sustainability are another essential factor you might want to consider before making up your mind. The chest must match your bedroom ambiance and complement the other furniture pieces. That is why, a white drawer is what people usually prefer. A piece crafted with premium material such as timber can serve as a statement piece and cover up any odd empty corner in your bedroom.
You made your bed perfectly, but now you’re getting ready, and you need to sit down and put your socks or shoes on, and you don’t want to mess up the perfectly made bed. Well, the bed shouldn’t be the only place you can sit in your bedroom. Along with a chair or stool in front of a dressing table, you could also get yourself an ottoman.
Whether it’s a long, square ottoman that complements the bed well, like this grey toy bench one, or a smaller round one like this beautiful velvet ottoman, they are a great piece of furniture that can help us get ready and look fabulous while doing so. Although these ottomans are best suited for bedrooms, there’s no restriction on where to put them. Wherever you place them, they will look stylish and beautiful.
The best part about these ottomans is that you can also use them for storage. You could put blankets, pillows, or other items you need occasionally. And who doesn’t love furniture that is good-looking but also highly versatile and useful? With either of these two options, you can ensure that your bedroom, or any other room, is neat and tidy.
Investing in quality bedroom furniture and decorating your bedroom is always a great idea, as we spend a third of our lives in a bedroom. In this guide, we’ve given you ideas for a bedroom renovation and talked about bedframes, chest of drawers, bedside tables, dressing tables, and ottomans, as well as side-tables and their impact.
Some of these furniture items, like a bedframe, are essential for your sleep and overall health. The other furniture items, arguably of lesser importance, like bedside tables, dressing tables, and ottomans, can make or break a bedroom. All of them, dictate a lot about your personal style. So, ensure to pick wisely.
