Putting together your dream bedroom interior? It's best to start with the essentials: a chest of drawers to keep your clothes neat and tidy, a comfy bed, but don’t neglect the lighting.
If you're tight on space, you can find a few extra inches by choosing fitted bedroom furniture, making the most of every nook and cranny and creating a sleek, minimalist finish. Find even more room by adding shelving to display your favourite knick-knacks. Larger bedrooms are ideal for the hotel-like luxury of king size beds with upholstered or wooden headboards. When you're shopping for mattresses, pick one to suit your sleeping style. Side sleepers can benefit from a softer mattress and stomach sleepers will enjoy snoozing on memory foam. A firm mattress can help people with back twinges get a peaceful night's sleep.
Lighting is also so important to help you relax before you fall asleep, but most people stop at the light fittings. However light bulbs with the right brightness and colour help create a soft mood in the room, and a dimmer light switch puts you in control and will help you ease away the day.
