Picking out timeless bedroom furniture.
Fashionable bedroom furniture can become old-fashioned over time so when picking out larger furniture such as beds, wardrobes and a chest of drawers, it may be a good idea to avoid new trends. Certain designs never go out of style, such as platform beds or four poster beds, wingback headboards and armchairs, wooden console tables, dressing tables, and upholstered benches and ottomans. For a more modern look, features such as metal legs or unique hardware can update traditional bedroom furniture and could even be replaced at a later date.
Taking advantage of decorative accessories.
Bedrooms are about comfort as much as style, and luckily fabric, soft furnishings and bedding are designed for both. Cushions, blankets and curtains can be used to accentuate the room's decor with colour, texture and pattern, while table lamps, as well as being practical, can also help enhance the room’s atmosphere. Bedding is the easiest way to make a visual impact; by updating your throws, pillows or duvet cover, a bedroom can instantly feel cosier and more welcoming.
Adding extra special bedroom furniture
If you have room to spare, a few more small pieces of bedroom furniture can be used to really personalise the space. A dressing table, as well as looking stylish, might introduce a new element to your daily ritual that could be a more glamorous alternative to applying makeup in the bathroom mirror. A bedroom bench or an upholstered ottoman can add depth and romance to your bedroom layout, while a chaise longue, lounge chair or daybed could be used to turn turn a bedroom corner into the ultimate reading or napping nook.
Picking out the right mood lighting.
In a bedroom, the right amount of light is essential for creating an atmosphere; a soft, romantic glow that is bright enough to avoid stubbed toes is ideal. Placing table lamps on bedside tables is often the go-to option, but wall lights or chandeliers with dimmer switches can also be stylish alternatives.
