Explore Styles, Themes and Aesthetics
Once you’ve found your style, it’s time to explore the type of furniture you’ll need. Start with a bedframe — it’s your centerpiece and can set the entire tone of your space. For example, if you’re looking for more of a bohemian and rustic style, an organic dark wooden frame will immediately bring an earthy feel to any boho bedroom.
Pair our Stonemill Bed Frame with the rest of the Stonemill collection for a consistent look, or add a little texture and contrast by pairing it with our Vintage Industrial Lamp Table ($195.00). This will enhance both pieces and add some contemporary, stylistic interest. Put a personal stamp on fixtures to feel at home in your space and to bring your furniture to life!
Consider Your Lifestyle
Consider how you live your life day-to-day to be sure that you find yourself with a room that you love and that works for you. If you have kids or pets, you’ll need items that can endure a little wear and tear, for example, choose a wood bed frame over a fabric one. If you struggle to keep your space organised, invest in some practical storage. The Tuscan Tallboy ($839.00) is a system that will provide you with a vast amount of capacity, without becoming over imposing. Its subtle, elegant colours and careful build will mean that you’ll be able to incorporate plenty of storage whilst combatting any crowding.
Organise Your Space
Plan where your furniture will fit into your room. If you’re not entirely sure of the size of your items just yet, map out a rough idea of where they’ll go. By practicing some Feng Shui you’ll keep your environment calm and healthy. Have a little extra space? Add extra elements like a desk and a fabric chair, your room will become multifunctional and you’ll be getting the absolute most out of your bedroom.
Know Your Measurements
Be meticulous with your measurements. Having a go with the measuring tape will make you feel more comfortable when you’re tackling the dimensions of not just your furniture, but also any decor you may choose. Nervous about shopping online? All of our products have their exact dimensions on our website for you to have full confidence in.
Compile Wish lists and Make Long-Term Investments
Don’t feel like you need to run out and buy a whole new room of furniture in one day. Compiling a wish list is a great way to keep an eye on pieces that you are interested in while you budget!
Sometimes, the add-ons are the best part. Transform your furniture by incorporating artwork, and ceramics – these take a room from cold to homely in just a few minutes. Statement items such as a large rug or more subtle, small accessories will add tone and style to a room.
Keep it Light
Light fixtures are another great resource when designing a space. Lamps are not only convenient but also very transformative. From industrial, to eclectic, to classic; whatever your taste, lamps are a great way to be playful with your space.
Most importantly, have fun with your bedroom! Furnishing a home doesn’t have to be too serious, you’ll enjoy yourself more when you’re making choices that are both beautiful and life-friendly. Express yourself through your bedroom furniture to take your space to the next level, it’s a deeply personal room that is there to relax and comfort you.
