Create a Cosy Master Bedroom This Winter
Winter time is a popular time for home improvements. When it’s cold outside, you want your home to be a blissful, cosy retreat from the elements. So why not take the time to create the ultimate cosy master bedroom this winter?
Step 1: Plan & Purpose
Before you install furniture in your dream master bedroom, you need a plan. Are you creating a cosy curl-up space with emphasis on your bed, or a space to escape into other worlds that requires an impressive entertainment unit perfect for housing TVs & games consoles? If you're thinking of new furniture, bring the room measurements when you visit our showroom! It makes it easier for us to help you find just the right pieces.
Step 2: Colour & Theme
Choosing a theme for your master bedroom is easier than you think. The best theme for you will reflect your personality and fit you like a glove.
For a casual, entertainment-friendly bedroom, choose modern accessories and bold, bright colours. For a romantic and relaxing bedroom, rustic, natural accents paired with pastel colours are ideal.
Step 3: Furniture & Lighting
With bedroom furniture, footprint and storage space are the main considerations. Don’t overcrowd your room with furniture and always make sure there is enough space to move comfortably around the bed and between the bed and door. After all, you will have to do that in the dark!
Beds with storage space beneath are the workhorses of many bedrooms. Wardrobes with built-in mirrors are great space-savers and can make a dark bedroom feel lighter. And wardrobes with sliding doors are very useful when you’re furnishing a smaller bedroom.
Lighting defines the mood in your room. And that’s not just true for your light fittings, which are a focal point and should fit your theme, but also with the lightbulbs you are choosing. Mood lighting is great for a cosy master bedroom, but if you love to read in bed, make sure your bedside lamps give reading-quality light. An overhead light works best if you like to relax and watch TV in your bedroom. And if you like romantic candlelight, then why not add a sconce to the wall or a smart candlestick or hurricane lamp to your chest of drawers?
There you have it – three easy steps to a cosy master bedroom this winter. All that’s left for you to do is plan your space, browse our gorgeous bedroom furniture ranges and create a bedroom that makes the colder months more bearable!
