7 Things Every Bedrooms Needs
7 Things Every Bedrooms Needs
A nice, cozy, beautiful bedroom is something we all need. It’s the room where we sleep and dream, where we rest and recharge. Most importantly, it’s the room where we are ourselves, where we can easily go and take a deep breath after a long day of work or school. What does the bedroom need, however? What does it need to become the perfect room for our needs? Well, we all have quite subjective needs sometimes, but the main things are more or less the same.
- Let’s start with the thing that most people won’t view as “needed”, but we think is very much essential. The thing that gives our bedroom its character – the little details. Whether we’re talking about wall decoration, artwork, posters, toys, or anything similar, every bedroom needs a bit of personality to suit the person or people that sleep in it. Some people love sports-themed bedding, others cover their walls with so many posters of music bands and singers that you can’t see the wallpapers anymore. Kids often want cartoon and comic book characters and toys, while more artsy-oriented people love paintings and photos on their walls and furniture. Whatever is your preference, your bedroom needs a bit of personality to become truly yours.
- Onto things that are functional in the practical world but still have an important aesthetical side – every bedroom needs a nice, big window, covered with beautiful and also practical curtains or blinds. As any other room, the bedroom needs to have a good source of natural light – to greet the sun every morning, to wish it a good evening when it sets, to watch the stars and the city before going to bed. There are so many clichéd metaphors about windows and their relations to our souls that we won’t even go there. At the same time however too much light can often be a bit irritating. That’s why some nice curtains or blinds can not only help us but also make the room more beautiful and cozy. Check SelectBlinds.com if you’re looking for ones for your bedroom.
Artificial light is also essential, however. Unlike a living room where you simply stick a big and bright ceiling lamp in the middle and let it shine, with the bedroom you need to be a bit more careful. Too bright ceiling lamps are not what you want for a bedroom – you don’t want them blinding you neither when you wake up early before sunrise, nor when you go to bed late at night. Something a bit weaker is perfect for a bedroom. At the same time, however, a lot of people love to read in bed – a cool nightstand or wall lamp will make this and a lot of other things much easier in the bedroom.
- Space. Every room needs space for… activities. And the bedroom is no different. And no, the bed is not enough for all bedroom activities! We mean actual floor space. You need to be able to move in your bedroom, not tip-toe between the furniture every morning, yawning and barely awake.
Speaking of the floor, every bedroom needs a nice, big rug. The right rug can keep the room warm in the winter and neat and nice in the summer. If chosen wisely it will suit the room perfectly and make it feel truly cozy. Check out SelectRugs.com for a wide selection of great rugs for your bedroom!
- Back to the matter of “space”, storage space is also vital for every bedroom. Even lone men often have plenty of clothes and stuff, besides almost everyone keeps all kinds of different things in their bedrooms. Big wardrobes, dower
chestsand nightstands are pretty much a must, with wall shelves, bookshelves and other similar furniture being a great benefit.
Adequate bedding. Duh! It’s the bedroom after all! We thought we’d go with “a bed” but that’s a given. A nice, functional bedding, however, is something a lot of people overlook. The bedding is what makes our sleep healthy and pleasant, what turns going into bed from chore to joy. Whether you need to upgrade your mattresses or mattress pads, your sheets or pillows, or maybe your blankets, duvets, and comforters – at Bedding.com you can find all the types of bedding your bedroom needs!
