In no other room do we spend as much time as in our bedroom . After all, this retreat is number 1 and ideally we sleep there at least seven hours in our bed. Unlike, for example, when furnishing the living room , there are a few rules to follow in the bedroom – after all, the room should not only look pretty, but also offer the perfect conditions for relaxing hours. We show which furniture, colors, lamps & Co. you can use to set up your bedroom and turn it into an oasis of well-being – and of course also an interior highlight.
Design and set up bedrooms: ideas for the furniture
Before you start thinking about home accessories, colors, or lighting, you should start with the furniture. After all, the furniture forms the basis of the entire bedroom furnishings. First and foremost, of course, the bed: Whether it’s a single or double bed, a box spring bed, or a classic wooden bed frame – the main thing is that the bed is comfortable! Of course, the mattress plays an important role in this.
The second most important piece of furniture in the bedroom is the wardrobe. First and foremost, it should be practical and offer space for all kinds of clothing. When it comes to a wardrobe, it pays to customize it so that it suits your own needs. The wooden Pax wardrobe from Ikea is still particularly popular, but of course, there are plenty of other furniture stores and shops that produce personalized wardrobes for the bedroom.
Incidentally, the most important rule when choosing furniture is that its size is proportional to that of the room. In other words, if you have a small bedroom, you should not necessarily opt for a robust king-size box spring bed, but rather choose a low, filigree bed. If you have enough space in the bedroom, you can set it up with a pretty chair and a dressing table in addition to the bed and wardrobe.
Design bedrooms: ideas for the textiles
Have you found the perfect furniture for the (small) bedroom? Then we continue with the textiles. Pillows and (day) blankets provide the necessary dose of coziness. Here you can let your creativity run free – feel free to mix different colors, materials, and prints. You should pay particular attention to the bed linen. It is best to choose modern bed linen made from a high-quality fabric such as cotton, linen, or silk. You should definitely keep your hands off polyester, otherwise, the bed linen will make you sweat quickly (especially in summer) and also won’t look so nice. In addition to pillows, blankets, and bed linen, curtains in the bedroom should not be neglected. Because we attach great importance to privacy, especially in the bedroom, a curtain also protects against unwanted light if you want to take a nap during the day or if the streetlight disturbs you when you sleep at night. Curtains made of velvet look particularly high quality and pompous, if you prefer a minimalist furnishing style, it is best to choose ones made of cotton or linen.
Living comfortably and practically: tips for more storage space in the bedroom
Especially if you have a small room, you need enough storage space. And you can do this in no time at all with the help of little tricks. Choosing smart furniture is half the battle. Pull-out furniture or multifunctional pieces of furniture such as a wooden bed with integrated drawers are best suited. Boxes and small containers also help to keep the bedroom tidy. In addition, it makes sense to use the walls not only for pictures, but also for storage space, for example in the form of hanging shelves or wall and door hooks. And what always helps in the first place anyway is to clean up regularly.
