The Ideal Bedroom Space: Our guide to creating a functional bedroom haven
As most of us begin and end our days in the wintry gloom of dark mornings and evenings, it’s safe to assume that we all crave the cosiness and calmness of our bedrooms as the day ends. We seek a place of relaxation and comfort; our bedrooms are our sanctuaries.
But these sanctuaries extend far beyond a comfortable bed and warm sheets for a good night’s sleep. We need a space that is optimised, organised and functional, somewhere that caters for our unique lifestyle, houses our possessions, is painted in our favourite colour and offers space for relaxing, not just sleeping.
Explore our guide on how to create an idyllic bedroom sanctuary that offers form, function and style.
Optimised bedroom storage
Extra tall wardrobes are the foundation of a well-organised and statement-making bedroom. This exquisite bedroom design features a customised storage solution with a wide range of advantages that can transform your space:
Maximised storage: Say goodbye to clutter and disarray with extra tall wardrobes. These expansive units provide ample room for all your possessions. Customise the interior to include hanging space, shelves, drawers, and compartments to accommodate your unique storage needs.
Sleek and stylish: However, these fitted wardrobes aren’t just about functionality; they also enhance your bedroom’s visual appeal. With a variety of finishes, materials, and designs to choose from, you can match the wardrobe to your bedroom’s décor, whether it’s modern, traditional, or contemporary.
Optimised space: Unlike freestanding wardrobes, which occupy valuable floor space, fitted wardrobes make the most of your vertical space. This frees up room for other furnishings and allows you to create a more spacious and organised environment.
A tailor-made dressing space
Incorporating a built-in dressing table into your fitted bedroom is a smart choice for those prioritising convenience. You’d be surprised how much a fitted dressing space can transform your getting-ready-routine on a morning:
Tailored to you: These built-in dressing tables are expertly designed to meet your requirements, ensuring a seamless fit within your bedroom’s layout and style.
Maximise space: While an ample bedroom space is appealing, taking up a small area for a dressing space can have very little impact on your floor space. Meanwhile, free up space in your bathroom and wardrobes by housing all your getting-ready accessories in one place.
Add value: Fitted dressing tables are not commonly found in bedrooms and can add value to your home in the eyes of potential buyers. In the meantime, it’s a wonderful space for you to enjoy, built uniquely for you.
The perfect night-time routine
This bedroom features floating nightstands and custom headboard lights – the perfect elements for a cosy reading station when preparing for sleep:
Ambient lighting: These subtle and adjustable headboard lights allow you to create the atmosphere you need to relax and prepare for a relaxing night’s sleep.
A unique design: Floating nightstands impart a clean, uncluttered look to your bedroom. They are built to accommodate whatever you need by your side as you sleep. Choose bespoke storage to enhance the practical function of your bedroom.
Floor space maximisation: By suspending nightstands off the ground, you create the illusion of more space in your bedroom. This is especially valuable in smaller rooms, as it gives the impression of a more expansive and open environment.
A multifunctional space
If space allows, built-in window seats are a charming and multifunctional addition to fitted bedrooms. They make the most of an underutilised space, providing a cosy nook with several practical uses:
Relaxation hub: A window seat offers the perfect spot for curling up with a good book, enjoying a cup of tea, or simply gazing out the window. It becomes a serene space for relaxation and contemplation.
Storage and display: By incorporating drawers or shelves into your window seat design, you can conveniently store items like blankets, cushions, or decorative pieces. With the addition of a tabletop, it becomes a versatile surface for work or play, offering a dedicated workspace or a place for your morning coffee.
Natural light: Placing a window seat beneath your bedroom window ensures you benefit from natural light. This not only enhances the ambience but also provides a comfortable reading or workspace that’s well-lit and inviting.
Functional bespoke fitted bedrooms are a fantastic way to optimise your space. Embrace these innovative solutions to create a bedroom perfectly suits your lifestyle and aesthetic preferences. With these elements, you can maximise your space and enjoy the tranquillity and organisation you deserve in your functional fitted bedroom.
