One of the most important spaces in your home is the bedroom - it's the place where you can relax and de-stress at the end of the day. Creating a comfortable and luxurious environment is key when designing a bedroom, but it can be difficult to know where to begin. We've put together a few key elements to help you design your perfect bedroom oasis!
1. Make It a Retreat
The bedroom is often left for last when renovating a home, but we believe it should be a top priority in your design. It's the place where you start and end the day, so turn it into a stress-free sanctuary! In one of our recent bedroom designs shown below, we incorporated a few key ideas to create a lush and peaceful environment. All it takes is a little planning to design your own restful bedroom!

There are several ways to design your space to exude a feeling of luxury and comfort. Choose soft colours for your walls and décor items as they promote relaxation and restful sleep. Add in soft lighting and textiles such as throw blankets and fabrics in muted, gentle tones to make your bedroom feel warm and cozy. Finish off your design by creating a small seating nook for reading and relaxation!
2. Divide It Up
With large bedrooms or open-concept spaces, creating a warm and cozy atmosphere can be a challenge. Try using dividers in your space to bring warmth and privacy into the room without compromising your open-concept design. The common instinct is to add shades or curtains to the room instead, but if your room has enough space, partition walls are an excellent option to create a private hideaway. There are many types of partitions available for purchase, but if you're feeling creative you can create your own divider to suit your style and needs.
3. A Place for Everything
It can be tough finding the right furniture that provides enough storage and fits your design vision. There's nothing more uninspiring as clothes and clutter strewn around the room, so clever storage solutions in your bedroom are critical. There are many varieties of multipurpose furniture which serve both as a storage solution and a focal point in the design of your bedroom.

Consider pieces like a bed with sleek built-in drawers, a luxury sideboard for extra storage instead of a standard dresser, or a lovely storage bench at the foot of your bed. These are just a few examples of ways to add furniture pieces that are multipurpose while maintaining your design vision. Remember, your furniture can be beautiful and functional at the same time!
