Gifting Expectant Mothers
When a friend or loved one is expecting a new family member it's your responsibility…
As a place in which we spend up to eight hours a day, our bedrooms have to be the perfect place to relax and unwind. However, this is hard to do if your current bedroom décor is driving you crazy. Poor storage, a sagging bed, dull colours and an uninspiring look can make your bedroom feel less like a dream room and more like a nightmare. If you are searching for the ideal new look for your bedroom, but don’t want to break the bank, take a look at this handy guide for the perfect solution.
The simplest and most infuriating problem when it comes to bedrooms is a lack of adequate storage. On one hand, you want plenty of room for your things, but on the other, you don’t want your bedroom to be full of boxes and bags all day. The solution here is to combine function with style. A decorative ottoman is a great idea if you want a storage place for your linens that also doubles as a beautiful piece of furniture. Or you can solve your bed problems by investing in a bed with storage, this allows you to keep your bits and pieces sorted, keeping the room tidy and saving room.
The quickest, simplest way to spruce up a tired bedroom look is to re-invent your windows. You would be surprised at what a new set of curtains or shades can do for your room. If your overall bedroom colour is quite light, go for something bold instead. Rich, bright curtains that hang to the floor, or a stunning patterned roller blind, can turn your window into a wonderful bedroom feature.
You don’t have to spend a fortune accessorising your bedroom – all you need it a bit of imagination. If you are the handy sort, you can easily make new cushions and pillow cases out of any fabric you choose. Try mixing blocks of rich colour like purple or blue with patterns for a great contrasting look. Or, if you find the idea of sewing a bit daunting, what about trying your luck at your local antique or vintage shop? You can find some wonderfully unique things at these places that your friends and family are unlikely to have seen before.
A Decent Wardrobe
It may only be one piece of furniture but the right wardrobe can make all the difference to your bedroom. Plus, you don’t have to spend a fortune to find the right one for you – all it takes is a bit of careful planning. Think about what you need specifically and tailor your wardrobe to fit. Bedroom storage solutions designed by Betta Living can give you the freedom to choose exactly what you want in your bedroom, meaning that you are far less likely to end up with unwanted space.
