There are many ways to design a bed ensemble, and the first thing you should do is determine what size mattress and base you need. You should also consider whether you want a headboard or footboard and whether there will be any space for shelving underneath. If you have the luxury of having an ensuite, then you could plan for a dressing table alongside, so think about some extra storage options in your bed base ensemble, if feasible. For those who love using their bedside table to store all items, having somewhere else nearby where they can put things without cluttering up the bedroom can be helpful, too, such as with a small bench or stool close by.
Choose the ideal mattress size
Regarding mattress size, the best way to determine what’s right for you is to think about how you sleep. A tiny twin bed might suit your needs if you like to curl up and snuggle under a comforter while reading a good book. On the other hand, if you tend to toss and turn at night due to hot flashes or can’t get comfortable on smaller mattresses, then going with an extra-long twin mattress could give you more room to breathe comfortably.
Go for a headboard
As you probably know, a headboard is a great way to show your personality. The choice of material and colour can be essential for the room’s overall look and feel. For example, a black headboard will complement your decor nicely if you have an eclectic style. But if you’re looking for something more traditional, add embellishments like crystals or intricate carvings. You can also add colour using paint or wallpaper.
A well-designed piece can be the focal point of the room. This is because it’s such an eye-catching feature; people will remember that first impression long after they’ve left.
Be creative with the bed base
While choosing the overall style of your bed base ensemble, you should also be careful to select a bed base that is in line with the rest of your home’s decor. Consider using a wooden or metal frame as your headboard if you have a rustic theme. If you have an eclectic look, try pairing a modern-style base with vintage accents. Whatever style you prefer, make sure it complements the rest of your furniture pieces so they all work together in harmony rather than conflicting with each other.
Get a bed bench
Bed benches are a terrific addition to your bedroom because they can serve so many purposes. They’re great for adding extra storage space and additional seating during movie night or when you have guests over. You can use a bed bench as a footrest, too. You don’t need to buy an ottoman for this purpose.
Show your individuality
The most crucial aspect to consider when designing your bedroom is how you want it to reflect your individuality. With so many options, from bedding and pillows to headboards and nightstands, you’ll want to ensure that every piece of furniture in your room fits together as part of a cohesive whole.
Be creative and consistent
There are many ways to create a cohesive look with your bed ensemble; you need to think outside the box. For example, if you want your bed ensemble to be consistent in style, use similar dimensions and finishes for all of its pieces. This way, everything matches, but each piece has its unique texture and material set against the backdrop of your primary colour palette.
