When planning or redecorating a bedroom, it’s helpful to think of a style you want to tap into or recreate as this helps edit your options as too much choice can be overwhelming. For instance, upholstered beds or headboards that are padded lean toward a more sumptuous look while simple timber bed frames reference a sleeker mood. Besides setting the right tone and being a comfortable place to sleep, beds can do double duty. Platform beds add a little drama at floor level and provide the perfect opportunity to place a bench at the end. Or maybe storage beds are what you need to keep clutter at bay or store spare bed throws. Whatever style bed you have in mind, it’s the bed linen that easily changes the look when you need a quick refresh. In summer it might be a case of some beautifully detailed sheets teamed with pillowcases and comforters. In winter, you could dial up the warmth with cosy quilts, quilt covers and bed cushions. Or a super-easy update is to mix and match pillowcases with different sheet sets. Choosing the look for your bed means you can then move on to different pieces of furniture that gel with your theme. Dressers offer bedroom storage and bedside tables are, of course, the ideal spot to perch bedside lamps or task lamps and books. Rugs add a finished touch and can be placed in a myriad of ways depending on the shape of your room. A tried-and-tested placement that works every time is to use a large rug under the bottom two thirds of the bed. Add mirrors both for necessity and visual appeal – floor mirrors add a nonchalant, sophisticated feel – and reward yourself for a job well done.
