Choosing the Right Furniture

Before buying new furniture, you need to check first the size of your room and what will be your theme. In choosing the best furniture, always check the quality, the materials and the stability of it. Why? because in doing that you are checking the life span of the furniture that you are buying. You don’t want to end up buying furniture every year just because you didn’t choose the right one in the first place.

Don’t stick in one store, try to visit as many stores as you can to check all the types and canvass on the price. And if possible, avoid the branded one because sometimes you are just paying the name of the brand and the item itself.

While for color, always choose the light color to give a fresh look. And for small spaces it will look more spacious if you will choose the light color instead of the dark ones.

Type of Bed

Did you know that bed is the most important part of a bedroom? Why? Because you are spending third of your life in bed. So it is really vital to also spend time in choosing the right one for you. Choosing the wrong bed will give you back aches and worst lack of sleep because you are not comfortable. A better night’s sleep in a better bed can all add up to a better you.

You can follow these tips in choosing the right bed for you:

Lie on it

It is a must that you try the bed and not just look at it. We’re all different and one bed isn’t made for everybody. People’s requirements for support will differ depending on their weight and build, so you need to be really comfortable with your decision.

Choose a bed together

If you are living with your partner, it is a must that both of you are present in buying a bed, this is to make sure that both of you will agree.

Make sure that it looks good

If you want your bed to make a statement, headboard is a must. Choose from metal, upholstered or wooden headboards in a variety of great designs.

Beds and Mattresses should work as a team

Always choose the bed with a mattress that works together because it is one way of guaranteeing that you will get a good night sleep.

Choose a good bed for your back

This is actually the main reason why we ask you to try the bed by laying down before buying it. This is to check that it is good for your back. Especially for people who have scoliosis. There are specific type of bed for them same as with people who have insomnia.

Color of the room

Choosing the best color is one of the hardest part in making a decision. You need to consider a lot of things, the size of your bedroom, the size of your windows, the theme that you would like to achieve, and lastly, your partners idea.

In choosing the best color, make sure that you choose that you color that you really because it will stay there for long and you cannot change the color of your room weekly. It’s a big waste of money and time. Take a look at decorating magazines and study different photos of bedrooms. See which ones are the most appealing to you. Check also your bedroom furniture that you just purchased, think what color will complement them.

If you can’t really decide, try using an online room planner to decorate the space. In that application, you can play around with the colors. Many of them will show you exactly how the room will look so you can potentially save a lot of time and money.

One maintenance is re-painting your room after 5 to 6 years to give it again a fresh look.

Choosing the right Bedding

The world of bedding is pretty vast and replete with so much terminology and jargon that it can be slightly confusing to the untrained among us. A bed is not a bed without a cloud-like duvet or some perfectly suited pillows – and by cloud-like we mean those fluffy cotton wool types.   

Pillows should be soft enough to be comfortable but firm enough to give the appropriate support to your head, neck and shoulders. A test to know if it’s time to replace your pillow is to place it over your arm – if it droops, it’s time for a new one.

While for the Linen, always check the materials of the cloth. Avoid choosing silk and always go for cotton. Bed linen is either printed or dyed. This makes it important to check whether the process is chemical free and the bed linen is good for your skin. The material and weave of the fabric also determines how breathable it is i.e. whether it remains cool or heats up against your skin.

When washing your linen, always look on the tag on how to properly wash it to avoid breaking it.

Cabinets and Drawers

It is advisable to have the cabinets and drawers installed in your walls to maximize the space. You can also look for a bed frame that has drawers under to use it for storage. Especially for a small type of room, look for a design that will not consume so much space in your room so that it will not look crowded of furniture. You can still move freely.

Designing your own room is a big task because once everything is in place,you cannot just change it right away. Make sure that you consult some experts, when you reached the point that you don’t know what to do anymore. Or talk to your family and friends, so that in the end the result will be more than what you are expecting.

The appearance of the room is not just enough it has to be clean too. Making your bed every morning helps. But keeping it organized and properly cleaned will give you that cozy feeling every time. The bedroom is the space in the home where we can retreat and relax. Bedrooms should a clean and pleasant space to help us unwind after a long day and get a good night sleep, so the next morning we’ll wake up feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day ahead. Regular cleaning helps but not everyone has the time to do it. The best solution is to hire professional cleaner and it would be better if they offer green cleaning services to make sure that they are using non-toxic cleaning products that is safe for you, for the environment and to your pets too. Don't push yourself to fit deep-cleaning tasks into your busy schedule. Deep cleaning needs enough time rushing it won’t give you best results. There’s also a tendency to miss some areas in your bedroom when you rush. By hiring a cleaning lady your room will be neat and tidy, they can also deal with your closet and windows.
