Things Every Bedroom Needs

Posted by formed on 27 February 2015

Your bedroom is a sanctuary where you can escape from the outside world and relax in your own space. It provides the perfect opportunity to express your individual personality and style through your choice of furnishings and interior design. Here at Robes n Rails we understand that it can be easy to get rather carried away when changing the decor of your bedroom, which is why we’ve put together a definitive list of things you’ll need to consider when kitting out your new bedroom to transform its look.

  1. Theme

Before you start investing in new pieces of furniture and home furnishings, you need to establish the theme of the room and the look you’re trying to achieve. While you may find items you’d love to incorporate into the room’s design, they may not fit in with your overall theme. Bedroom designs which have been forecasted to trend in 2015 include:

  • mid-century modern
  • antique
  • rustic
  • soothing green tones
  • bold, rich hues

Whether you’re looking to incorporate this year’s design trends into your decor or would rather choose your own style, it’s important to decide on a theme before starting the project.

  1. Storage

As the saying goes, ‘tidy house, tidy mind’, and what better place to start than keeping your bedroom neat for a peaceful night’s sleep? Creating ample storage is an effective way of reducing clutter and making sure your bedroom remains tidy. From fitted wardrobes to under-bed storage,  there’s an extensive range of storage solutions available, so you’ll be spoilt for choice when deciding which option will best suit your requirements.

Whether you’re fanatical about shoes or boast a large DVD collection, innovative storage ideas can help keep your room mess free while injecting some creativity into the decor.

  1. Lighting

Choosing the perfect lighting for your bedroom will help set the tone and contribute to the overall look. For example, an ornate chandelier not only illuminates an entire room, but is a stylish addition to the design. Other functional options include subtle pendant fixtures, bedside sconces or ceiling spotlights which can be easily switched on and off when required.

  1. Plush rug

Getting up in the morning can be difficult work at the best of times, with many of us dreading the thought of leaving our warm bed to step onto a cold hard floor. Why not make this a little easier for yourself by investing in a comfortable, plush rug to keep your toes toasty on those chilly mornings? If you already have carpet in your bedroom, try layering a smaller rug near the bed for practicality as well as style.

  1. Comfortable mattress

Your bedroom is a place of tranquility where you can drift to sleep without a care in the world. Your bed will be the central feature which, above all else, needs to provide the support and comfort required for a decent night’s sleep. No bedroom is complete without the perfect mattress so make sure you do plenty of research and testing before investing in a new one. After all, if you haven’t managed to sleep properly you won’t be able to appreciate your gorgeous new room.


A bedroom must deliver on functionality and style, offering a place to relax and unwind after a stressful day.
