Your bedroom may seem fine. You have a comfortable bed, a mirror to do your hair and a hamper for your dirty washing. Could some small touches improve your bedchamber? Adding extra storage, cosmetic appeal and a brighter more enticing room. Remove the clutter to reveal clearer surfaces and a tidier room. Here we explore how small touches, that can make all the difference in your favourite room.
Let there be lamps.
Free standing or table lamps are common in the sitting room but are often left out of the bedroom. Adding new light sources will help create mood lighting, assist in your bed time reading and save you from having to leave your warm bed to turn out the main light on a cold winters evening. Lamps are easily moved if you want to alter the lighting plan and with most lamps you can change the shade to alter colour, or even brightness, as you see fit.
Having a table with draws at the side of your bed is a lifesaver. Store spectacles, glasses of water, phones and alarm clocks. Held within their many draws hide medications, that you may otherwise wish to stay private or important documentation that needs to be kept safe. What you store in your bedside table is your own business, but you will wonder how you ever functioned with out one. With a bedside table on both sides the tables will have a cosmetic symmetry that really brings a room together.
By putting up a few simple shelves, you could remove an awful amount of clutter like books, DVD’s and video games. Other then the practical appeal, shelving gives a room a cosy and personal look, with out breaking the bank on ugly storage solutions that are a bore to claw through when you are short on time. With the humble shelf, all your stuff is right on hand when you need it. This low technological approach creates a classic look and can fill a bland wall that would otherwise contain an embarrassing poster or ugly landscape picture.
Under bed tubs.
For long term retention of troublesome objects, plastic tubs that slide under your bed are brilliant. If you struggle to find room for your winter over-garments in July or your sports gear in December, look no further then a cheap, light weight and practical storage solution that makes use of an amount of space that has been otherwise useless.
