Beds – just the beginning

Re-doing your bedroom? Choosing your bed is just the beginning!

If you’ve decided that it’s time to re-decorate your bedroom, there are lots of things that you’ll need to consider. One of these is replacing your bed, and you should consider looking at beds before you go any further with your bedroom scheme.

Do you know what you want?

The first step to creating your dream room is to know what you want. If you decorate on a whim, the results could be disastrous – take the time to look at interior design magazines or make-over shows to get some ideas about the styles and designs that appeal to you. Many design experts encourage you to make a “mood board”; a collection of the colours, fabrics and design elements that you’d like to use in your room. Once you’ve decided what you want, you can begin to shop for beds.

New beds, new room

A new bed can be the focal point of your room. Once you’ve settled on a style, go shopping for a bed that fits in with your idea. Don’t forget, though, that it’s not just how the bed looks that matters, it’s how comfortable and supportive it is. That’s why you need to take the time to find a bed that feels right as well as one that looks right. Shop around online and in the showrooms, and make sure that you try out the beds you are interested in. You should never buy a bed without lying down on it first, to make sure that the mattress and base are right for you.

Building your room

Your bed is likely to be the biggest piece of furniture in your room, so it’s important that it fits in with your design ideas. Once you have chosen your bed, you’ll be able to build the rest of your room around it, using colours, fabrics, flooring and accessories to complete the design that you’ve been working on.
