Your bedroom is the place where you spend most of your life. Naturally, as such, it should be a haven of comfort and relaxation. If you want to save some money on furniture, leave the bedroom as the last option.
Always think about the space. Your bedroom shouldnít be cramped with furniture and electronic appliances. The centre of this private universe is the bed. Itís the most important piece and all other are subordinate. Donít hesitate to buy a king size or queen size bed instead of a normal double and believe me, this investment will pay for itself. Match it with your preferred mattress: remember Ė the softest doesnít necessarily mean the most comfortable. Your body will be healthier with firmer support.
Your bedside table or nightstand should be at comfortable height to be easily accessible from the bed. This storage place is intended just to place a book or glass of water on it, so you donít need anything huge. Donít place any additional table in the bedroom as you would start bringing your work here and thatís not the best idea on how to achieve relaxing sleep.
Choose lights with adjustable brightness; they will help you to create intimacy when you want to talk with your partner and help you to avoid painful flashes when you have to suddenly turn on the light in the middle of night.
Donít forget about open space. We want the bedroom to be airy and not hitting a chair or closet after stepping out of the bed. Keep most of your clothes in another room and have just a small place to leave your evening clothes. If you canít do this, install decent wall to wall closets. Your bedroom should look compact, not like a storage area for various pieces of furniture.
The next thing you really need are good curtains, which will keep you in darkness for the whole night, especially when your bedroom is east oriented (unless you want to wake up 5 am every morning). And thatís it. You donít need additional chairs, tables, boxes; you even shouldnít have a TV in the bedroom. Donít place too many things on the walls, one painting is enough. A bedroom should be a sanctuary of relaxation, not a gallery or museum full of vases and statues. You will have plenty of opportunities to use these decorations in other rooms.
Add quality sheets (400 thread count and more) and blankets, pillows with memory foam and your Heaven on Earth is ready to be slept in.
