A PLACE TO RELAX
CREATE A RELAXING OASIS
WHEN it comes to a cosy bedroom hideaway, it’s important to consider your individual style.
Bedrooms are a place to wind down and enjoy a restful night’s sleep, says Fantastic Furniture senior executive Craig Evans.
He lists colour as an important factor.
“For some, light pastels and neutrals bring calm, while others may prefer to create a cosy retreat with mood enhancing tones such as black, purple and red.
“Choose bedding and accessories such as cushions and table lamps to accentuate your theme,” Evans says.
Ensuring you have a comfortable mattress is key to a great night’s sleep.
“The best mattress is one that is super comfortable, with lots of support. It is worth shopping around and also try in store to see what suits you,” Evans says.
“A bed is a centrepiece for the room. When choosing a bed, consider your preferred style, contemporary, classic or something with a modern twist such as glamorous upholstery, casual coastal timber or sophisticated polished metal.”
Adequate storage also helps to create calm. Clear clutter with multifunctional furniture such as bedside tables with drawers and cupboards.
“Wardrobe inserts are a great option for messy shoes and bulky items. You can close the door to keep everything hidden away,” Evans adds.
Storage is essential in kids’ rooms when toys and books can cause chaos.
There are some clever storage and furniture solutions available that can clear clutter into calm.
