As a result of the ongoing pandemic, the past year has found most of us stationed in our bedrooms a lot more than usual. Perhaps once solely a place of rest and leisure, it has recently also become a place of work for many.
Given such heightened use of the bedchamber right now, what better reason could there be to invest in it? With January sales in full swing, now is the perfect time to consider a new bedroom setup, without having to break the bank. Check out these king size bedroom sets for sale for some inspiration.
Here are some things to bear in mind as you embark on your search:
1. Color scheme
The first thing you will have to decide on is the color scheme for your room, as this will help you to choose a bedroom set that aligns with your palette.
The safest bet is to go for neutral colours like white, beige or a soft grey, but if you’re feeling more adventurous you might go for a feature wall with a warmer color like mustard yellow or terracotta.
Bold blues work surprisingly well with mahogany, and teal goes splendidly with rosewood. But be careful with darker colors, as they tend to make rooms look smaller, and if you have a penchant for darker furniture, the combination might result in an oppressive atmosphere.
2. Room functionality
Aside from sleeping, what else will you be using your bedroom for? If your room doubles as a workspace, you’ll need to ensure you have ample space for a desk. If you don’t, fret not! A bedside table with doors or drawers can discretely hide all manner of sins, and beds themselves are increasingly coming with inbuilt storage facilities, helping you to make the most of your available space without sacrificing style.
But all work and no play can make your room a stressful place to inhabit; so why not make it more enjoyable by arraying the space with some artwork? Think logically about the placement of these pieces, and make sure they are proportionate to the rest of your furnishings.
3. Room layout
Structural elements of a room such as windows and doors cannot be moved around, whereas additional elements such as furniture can be. Accordingly, it is important to work with your room’s layout rather than against it, by selecting furniture which complements its structural elements.
Arrange your furniture in a manner that allows you to navigate your room with ease, and, if space allows, try not to push your furniture flush against the wall. Believe it or not, leaving that bit of space can make the room feel bigger. There is a multitude of free 3D room planning tools online to help you visualize the best room layout without the hassle of a physical trial and error approach.
If your room is low on natural light, strategically mount a mirror or two on your walls to bounce light around your room. Directly across from your window is optimal! Not only will this create the illusion of more light, but it will also make your room feel more spacious.
These handy tips will help you choose the best bedroom set for you, whilst maximising both space and comfort. So, what are you waiting for?
