Your bedroom should be a room that you look forward to spending time in. Bedrooms should be comfortable, serene, and relaxing. It is important to match your bedroom with your personal style while making it a functional space and that starts with choosing the right furniture and décor. When you think of bedroom furniture, you likely think of a mattress, nightstand, and dresser. However, a bedroom can offer so much more than the basics. Ottomans An ottoman can serve as a multi-purpose piece in a bedroom. The inside of tan ottoman can serve as storage which allows you to hide blankets, throw pillows, or store extra linens. The outside of an ottoman provides a comfortable seat where you can sit to put on socks or shoes. They are also very decorative and can provide a bedroom with a soft splash of color and practicality. Lights A bedroom should be a space that helps you wind down from a long day, and the light source in your bedroom is going to play a big role in that. You should fill your bedroom with accent lamps which can serve as a decoration and as a soft source of light. If you are working on getting ready to turn in for the evening, a florescent overhead light will keep you wide awake. A soft light from a lamp will help you relax and can be turned on or off easily from the comfort of your bed. Chairs Your bed should not be the only place you have to sit in your bedroom. Putting an inviting chair in your bedroom gives you a place to rest or read without getting into bed. Many sleep experts say that you should not watch TV, use your phone, or read a book in bed because your bed should be associated with falling asleep. Vanity If you have a large enough bedroom, fill that extra space with a vanity. A vanity can provide you with storage if it has drawers and it can easily store and hide items that you don’t want sitting out. A vanity can hold hair products, makeup, or other personal grooming items. Vanities often have mirrors as well, allowing you to have one extra mirror in your space as well. These items will help you make your bedroom your personal sanctuary. For more about fine furniture and interior design services, visit Sherwood Studios.
