When it comes to decorating your bedroom, you want to create a calming space that induces a good night’s sleep whilst ensuring it reflects your character and features a relaxing colour scheme. Of course, there are several other elements of a bedroom that help to make the most of the space you have such as the best bed frames designed to not only look good but offer greater comfort and cosiness. With that in mind, we’ve taken a closer look at the role of beds in interior design and home decor, below.

1. Add Texture To Your Room

Nothing says ‘chic’ quite like a bedroom that has been carefully decorated to represent you. A plain and simple bedroom may be your aesthetic, but ensuring it features some texture can add to its cosiness and visual weight.

You can add texture in multiple ways, such as your decorative pillow and throw choice, to the bedframe you choose. Wool, linen, wood and velvet are all popular textures that can be used in the bedroom, and the rest of the home, to add further character to your space.

2. Complement Your Decor

Styling your bed is one of the best ways to ensure it complements the rest of the decor in your bedroom. Using pillows, throws and a duvet that fit the colour scheme are just three simple ways to induce relaxation, comfort and a sense of calm. Ultimately, the aim is to make sure your bedroom boasts an equal amount of chic and tranquillity to positively affect our mood and sleep.

The colour scheme of your bedroom could also be impacting your sleep. Muted tones such as blue and green can encourage a better night’s sleep, helping you feel relaxed.

3. Effective Storage

When it comes to your bed, there are several options available that can provide further functions. Ottoman beds or divan beds are both excellent choices for those who want to make the most of the space they have, offering a further space to store belongings without adding further furniture to the room.

In addition to saving space, beds with some kind of storage also provide budget saving perks, allowing you to possibly spend more on your bed compared to purchasing multiple pieces of furniture to meet your needs.

4. Define How You Move Around A Room

Your bed isn’t just the place where you lay your head at night, it can help you to determine how you move around a room. Your bed is likely to be positioned in the centre of your room, creating a focal point. You may then find it easier to design the rest of your bedroom, knowing just how much space you have either side.

It can also help you decide the colour scheme and accessories, creating a better flow. Why not try experimenting with angles and avoiding pushing furniture against walls to create a greater sense of balance?

5. Create An Inviting Atmosphere

A comfortable and cosy bedroom is key to a good night’s sleep so not only does your bed play a crucial role in your interior design and home decor, but it can also help you get a better night’s rest too. This is why choosing the right mattress for your body type is so important, ensuring it supports your body in all the right places as you sleep.

The best way to choose the right one involves considering your sleep position. For example, if you sleep on your back or stomach, a firmer mattress may be the best option. Soft mattresses, on the other hand, are more beneficial to those who sleep on their side.
