Creating a Calm and Relaxing Bedroom

I wrote a post recently about styling your bedroom, and someone made a personal comment to me that all the bedrooms looked gorgeous but do we really live like that! Well of course we don’t, and once we add our beloved other halves into the mix things really start to go awry. I like this guest post because it’s focusing on the reality of how we live and finding a solution through fitted bedroom furniture. I hope you like it!

However, the reality is that most people’s homes are not 100% perfect and need a little bit of imagination in order to make them look their best and make best use of the space available.

One of the rooms that often ends up being a bit more cluttered than we would like is the bedroom. Double beds take up a lot of space and when you have to find room for two people’s clothes, shoes and bits and pieces things can start to look a bit cramped. One of the best ways of combating this problem is by getting fitted bedroom furniture which is designed to nestle nicely against the walls and make the most of whatever space you have in the room. It means the bed doesn’t end up jutting out from the walls at an awkward angle, and even if you only have a small corner for wardrobe or drawer space, you can still make the most of it. Fitted furniture is particularly useful if your bedroom is in the attic where low ceilings and awkward angles can make it tricky to get a streamlined look to the room.

You’ll find fitted bedroom furniture available at in a whole range of styles to suit every taste. Furniture can be designed and made to suit the ultra modern house using lots of mirrors and gloss finished wood in monochrome colours, or you can go for something a lot more traditional with an oak or pine finish that would suit a period conversion or more rustic design.

Once you’ve decided to invest in some fitted furniture the next step is to get an experienced sales designer around to measure up your room and offer expert advice on what type of furniture would suit your home. This ensures that everything from your bed to your storage units will fit perfectly into your bedroom, creating a calming, streamlined look and feel. Once the measurements have been made it will take a few weeks to design and build your furniture, with the timings dependent on the style you have chosen and sometimes the time of year you ordered it. When everything is ready an expert craftsperson will come around and install your furniture, taking care to leave your home exactly as they found it. And you can look forward to a clutter free and stylish bedroom for however long you remain in the house.
