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.

A con­tem­po­rary bed de­sign suits a teen re­treat (above) or you can add magic for younger chil­dren with the Fairy Dust quilt set from Fan­tas­tic Fur­ni­ture.
