- A Good Quality Mattress
Mattresses are the most underappreciated bedroom essential on this list. Most people won’t understand the true value of a mattress unless they’ve had to endure a night sleeping on an air mattress or even worse, a hardwood floor. Admit it, we’ve all been there. As we age, the need for a comfortable night’s sleep becomes even more important. Therefore, this should be the first item on your shopping list. After all, you’ll need somewhere to sleep and preferably it should be a mattress that is hard-wearing. We know, it’s much easier to shell out for a budget-friendly mattress, but this is one item you shouldn’t scrimp on. Invest in a good quality version, whether that’s a single mattress, memory foam mattress, or an orthopedic mattress, and believe us, your body will thank you for it.
Remember, you can always call upon one of our in-store sleep specialists to help you choose the best mattress for your specific needs.
- A Bed Frame
No mattress is complete without a strong, supportive bed. A bed frame is the foundation of a mattress and another key component of a good night's rest. Sleep can be disturbed by the smallest noises, especially if you are a light sleeper. Squeaking, creaking, sliding, can all interfere with a person’s mood and routine. This is why it’s imperative that you buy a bed frame for your bedroom.
While everyone has their own preference on material and price point, a bed is first and foremost the support for your mattress and the ultimate focal point of the room. Once you have decided on color and fabric, you will then need to decide on the size. It may not seem important but a double bed in a single room can overpower the entire space. In contrast, a single bed in a double room can feel empty and bare and you might end up trying to fill the space with unnecessary junk.
Soft, cozy bedding makes a bedroom feel down-to-earth and put-together all at once. There is nothing like a plush duvet to make you feel at your most relaxed. Similarly, a mattress topper, duvet, pillows, and bed sheets can add to the overall comfort of your night’s sleep.
Have you ever noticed that when you sleep in a hotel you have the best night’s sleep ever? Well, that isn’t just because you are away from home, it's because they use high-quality sheets and bedclothes. Sure, you could buy cheap bedding, but you will only have to replace it soon after, wasting time and requiring more effort than if you just purchased high-quality bedding, to begin with. You’ve been warned.
If you’ve just purchased a mattress, then it's also a good idea to purchase a mattress protector to help preserve its longevity.
- Bedside Lockers
A bedside table or nightstand can keep your bedroom cleaner. They are mainly used for storage and can house necessary items that you may need to grab in a hurry. Placing a locker by the bed is very helpful for when you need something in the middle of the night or first thing in the morning. These essential pieces can also help to avoid accidents. Think about it, when you need to get up in the early hours, you’re not going to turn on the main ceiling light. This is because the light is too extreme and usually the switch on the wall is too far away from you. Instead, you will turn to your bedside locker and flick on the nearest table lamp, this illumination is just enough to light the room so that you can easily navigate to the door.
A small bedside table is one of the most functional pieces of furniture you can have in your home, which is why it is placed firmly at number 4 on this list.
- Wardrobe or Chest of Drawers
Admittedly, this item of furniture may not be a concern or an essential bedroom item for you. You could have built-in wardrobes, or a walk-in wardrobe and would much rather include a bedroom chair in the corner of the room. However, those who are seeking the perfect storage solution for their clothes will need to invest in a wardrobe, tallboy, or chest of drawers.
These versatile pieces can be used to organize or hide clutter and are key to ensuring that your bedroom is a relaxing space to unwind after a long day.
- Dressing Table
Last but not least, a dressing table. Your bedroom should not be without a space to beautify yourself. These vanity tables will allow you to get yourself ready for your long-overdue night out. A makeup table will usually include a desk, mirror, and stool combination which will allow you to easily enhance your true beauty. And if that doesn’t convince you, having one of these will mean not having to fight someone for the bathroom mirror. This mirror and table will be yours and yours alone (maybe your partner’s too if he/she is lucky enough).
Some of these all-important desks will also have convenient drawers that you can use for even more storage. Use this for keeping your makeup, hairdryer, or jewelry box. With so many benefits to a dressing table, it’s no wonder it is on this list.
A bedroom should be where you go to relax, unwind, and feel comfortable before you inevitably drift off to sleep. We know that there is so much more you could add to your bedroom decor, from mirrors to rugs, to wall art. However, this list is not exhaustive, it should be used as a starting point that can be built on in the near future should you have any spare time.
