A comfy seat, cosy as your mattress will soon be, having a dedicated spot to sit on can enhance the bedroom experience. We’re talking a comfy bench, ottoman or chair, where you can read a magazine, pet the cat, paint your nails or slip into your stilettos.
Careful planning and a dash of inspiration are all that’s needed to turn your bedroom into a dream sanctuary. A comfortable and alluring bedroom is all about combining form and function. Maximise storage for an uncluttered, serene look, focus on effective ambient lighting and cosy bedding and you won’t go far wrong. Here are our tips for creating the ideal scheme.
Light it right, your bedroom needs to be perfectly functional too. Install more than one lighting circuit so that you can switch out the lights at the bedside without the need to cross the room. A dimmer will help create a serene evening ambience while dimmable downlighters work well when task lighting is needed. If space is limited, opt for a wall mounted lamp with an elegant shade like this one, freeing up space on the bedside table. Opt for a warm yellow quality of light, rather than a cool, blue light. ‘Make sure lighting helps to visually maximise the space too,’ advises Mary Barber-Fray of Mary Barber-Fray Interior Design. ‘For example, try lighting the narrower sides of the space to provide a sense of width, whether with wall lights or tiltable recessed spotlights. Choose lampshades that allow light to reflect upwards if you need to give some height to a low ceiling too.
