Don’t feel bad that you’re bored with your bedroom. If you’re shuffling into your personal space with a sigh every evening, the odds suggest that the time is right for a change. This is the room that’s supposed to be a reflection of who you are, after all, so it’s always worth dedicating time to getting it how you like it.
There are a few things worth keeping in mind when planning your new bedroom layout, and the Hartleys’ team can help you along the way. Got your pad and pen handy? Read on and take notes as you go…
Where are all the fixed features?
Marking down all the fixed features in your bedroom is paramount to creating a fully-functioning space that makes life easy. Little things, like positioning your PC close to plug sockets and ensuring your wardrobe is always far enough away from the doorframe, can make a huge difference in terms of comfort levels.
You should also consider if you’d like your bed pressed up against the radiator, as well as where you’d like to place your pillow in relation to the window. Some love being woken by a cool breeze and bright light; others couldn’t imagine anything worse. The beauty about planning your bedroom is that everything’s entirely up to you!
Use every inch of space
It’s surprisingly simple to create a soothing bedroom that feels bigger than it actually is. All you need to do is use every inch available. Built-in storage units can help clear clutter and free up floor space, whilst fitted wardrobes give you a great chance to store lots of garments without making sacrifices.
If you need advice on how to make the most of your bedroom dimensions, our design consultants can take accurate measurements and make suggestions on possible options. All you need to do is ask!
Consider your needs
There’s no right or wrong answer when it comes to building a brand new bedroom. It’s all about what you’re looking for and the kind of effect you’re trying to create. If you want a vanity unit where you can apply your makeup in the morning, for example, you’ll have to consider where in the room receives the most natural light.
What’s more, if you’re prone to changing your mind about your surroundings, you’ll need to be honest with yourself about this before you begin planning. For maximum flexibility and the opportunity to change things around at will, adaptable freestanding furniture is the answer.
