Designing The Perfect Bedroom

You’ve made the choice to refurbish your home and there are some big decisions to make especially when it comes to the bedroom.

This particular home renovation project is an exciting one, but there are some key aspects that require careful thought and consideration in order to select the perfect bed and create a space for peace, calm and relaxation.

It’s easy to let indecision cloud your judgement, so let us guide you to ensure this process is as enjoyable and fulfilling as it should be.

Designing the perfect bedroom

Think early about your choice of bed.

Although buying the biggest bed available can be a tempting prospect, ensure your home refurbishment plan is realistic, analyse the space you have and decide on how big you want your bed to be.

If your bedroom is on the smaller side, a large bed can make it feel cramped and uncomfortable.

Start by measuring the maximum length and width of the area you plan to put your new bed and keep a note of the measurement.

If you’re more of a visual planner, a popular method is to place masking tape or sheets of paper around the area to plot out potential positions before you measure to get an idea of how it will look and work in relation to your plan.

It’s also important to bear in mind how much space you actually have in your bedroom once all your other furniture is in place.

Open drawers and cupboards to assess the additional room needed.

Before purchasing your dream bed, it’s also worth thinking how its styling and overall look ties in with your furniture and storage solutions.

This harmony will ensure you create the right ambiance and atmosphere in the bedroom, which will aid relaxation and peaceful rest.

Bedroom Harmony feature

A perfect bedroom not only needs to deliver on looks and feel, but must be practical and functional.

Ideally, both sides of the bed will be accessible and at least a metre of space to walk around the room is often a usual requirement.

It’s also important to consider any awkward turns or ‘quirky’ areas within the bedroom and factor those into the bigger picture.

If you are tight for space, your choice of bed will help.

Our divan bases are available in a range of heights from contemporary shallow divans with a choice of legs to classic deep divan bases.

In order to tie the base in with the theme of your room, all of our divan bases are upholstered in the fabric of your choice.

When you refurbish your home it’s easy to focus on the obvious and forget the finer details.

We’re all guilty of uttering the frustrating phrase ‘why didn’t I think of that before.’

So, with this in mind, consider the location of light switches and plug sockets around the bed.

These are vital when it comes to supplying power to bedside lamps, alarm clocks and other bedroom gadgets.

This is an area that’s often overlooked by many when renovating their bedrooms so make sure you don’t fall into this category.

Choosing your perfect bed

During the daylight hours it’s the visual focus of the room and by night, it becomes a personal sanctuary for rest, recuperation and reflection, so when you’re selecting a bed, take time to ensure that it fulfils its dual role without compromise.

When working through your home refurbishment checklist, think early about your choice of bed, the size you require and who is going to be using this space.

We all have different requirements and expectations, but one thing we do have in common is the fact that we spend a quarter of our lives in bed, so it’s a decision well worth taking time over because good sleep is directly linked with better health and improved wellbeing.

Important Factors

Body shape, height and weight, budget or preferred style are all factors which need careful consideration.

We pride ourselves on offering a large, yet concise, collection of divan beds with pocket-spring mattresses.

So, whether you require a stylish single, a luxurious double or an indulgent King or Emperor to create the perfect centrepiece for your dream bedroom, we’ve got you covered.

Here at snuginteriors we are extremely proud to be working with leading luxury British brands such as Vispring and Hypnos.

Their commitment to sustainable bed making, recycling and using natural materials are factors we believe to be essential when selecting a new luxury divan bed.

Important Factors feature

The heavier you are, the firmer the mattress you’ll need, but if you and your partner differ widely in weight, consider zip-link mattresses, which allow each person to have a level of firmness that suits them.

There’s lots to consider when it comes to your mattress, but we are the bed experts and ensure our customers make the right choice, whether you visit us in store or speak to one of the team over the phone.

Once you’ve chosen your perfect bed, it’s time to switch your focus to the headboard.

This vital element not only provides a decorative focus, but also a comfortable backrest to enhance the overall experience of your new bed.

At this point it’s also worth pointing out that you should always be mindful of the height and style of your headboard as it can influence the aesthetic and practicality of your space.

It’s vital not to rush this process and consider your options.

Every single one of our upholstered headboards are handmade in Britain.

They are available in a wide selection of fabrics and heights to ensure your selection brings you one step closer to creating your perfect bedroom.

We offer the complete headboard collection from Vispring and Hypnos, along with our snuginteriors range.

Add another dimension of luxury and comfort to your sleep

We firmly believe that dressing your bed is all about adding layers of luxury to your rest and sleep.

Let’s talk bedding.

There’s no better feeling than sliding beneath the comforting folds of a perfect, cloud-like duvet.

The warmth of duvets is measured in togs: the higher the rating, the warmer it will be.

As we are in Autumn and will soon to be making the transition into winter, you should be looking at 10.5 to 13.5 togs for winter.

Four-seasons duvets combine a low and a medium rated quilt to give three options.

Natural duvet fillings usually contain feather, down or a mix of the two.

Our collection of warm, breathable duvets includes luxury products from brands such as Devon Duvets and The Fine Bedding Company.

With a broad range of styles, you’re sure to find a duvet that suits you.

Need Inspiration feature

Our passion lies in our attention to detail and to consider every eventuality when it comes to maximising the quality of the outcome for our customers.

snuginteriors beautiful bedding range allows you to take your sleep experience to the next level.

From our finest goose down pillows encased in 100% Egyptian cotton, to our extensive and generously filled collection of mattress toppers, we offer everything you need to add another layer of luxury to your sleep.

Bed linen is the final piece to the jigsaw to ensure your dream bedroom delivers on every level.

It helps to add colour, texture and a unique personality to your bed and the surrounding space.

Ultimately though, it’s the way your bed linen feels next to your skin which is the most important factor to consider.

So, compromising on quality in this area just doesn’t make sense.
