Everyone needs a space they can retreat to when they are feeling stressed or in need of some “me” time, and for most people that place will be their bedroom. However, to achieve a relaxing place you’ll most likely need to work on it. How many of us are truly happy with our bedrooms? In reality, very few! Maybe the furniture is in need of replacing. Maybe your mattress has seen better days or perhaps you’ve run out of space in the wardrobe and things are spilling out onto the floor. If that sounds a bit like your bedroom, then it’s time to do something about it. We recently caught up with Chelmsford based furniture manufacturers, Priest Brothers, to take a look at the importance or putting in the time and money to your bedroom and why it’s a space which should be treated as the centre of your home.
Considering Your Bed
One of the most important pieces of furniture in a bedroom is the actual bed itself, so if last time round you went for a cheap, bottom of the market bed, take a look at a more upmarket version and go for one made of real wood this time. How about a Sleigh Bed to create an impact or perhaps a bed made from reclaimed oak? You could add to that a 3 door wardrobe to contain your clothes and a military chest for other items. Next to your new bed you could have a couple of 2 drawer bedside chests with a couple of new lamps to provide some ambient lighting for when you want to read or chill out. We spend almost one third of our lives sleeping and, as such, there’s nothing wrong with treating yourself to a top of the range bed which is nothing short of luxurious!
Most people are guilty of hoarding unnecessary possessions so before you get your new furniture, have a good sort out and get rid of the things you no longer have a use for. After all, there is no point going to all that effort to ruin the effect with clutter.
Your new bedroom will then be able to provide that wonderful place for you to escape to after a hard day at work and hopefully you’ll have no trouble relaxing ready to face another day.
