How To Plan Your Bedroom

Changing your bedroom may involve a quick lick of paint to cover up smudgy, chocolate finger prints left by your children and a new duvet from Mark’s spring sale to freshen up your room, or it may include a complete change, replacing trusty old furniture that are falling to pieces or out dated.

Whether you are looking for free standing furniture or fitted wardrobes and units, we can design and build both for you. As such, we will help you plan your bedroom. We can also help with pop-up TVs, lighting, storage and accessories.

Creating a new bedroom

If you have a lot of clothes, shoes, accessories, bed linen and towels to store, fitted furniture is a great way to store and keep everything just where you want it, so you can find it easily. Our furniture is available in a range of high quality styles from cool to contemporary to traditional.

1. Work out your budget

First of all, work out your budget, whatever your circumstances are – it will help to keep your spending in-check. Estimate how much each item will cost on a spreadsheet or a sheet of paper. If you have a budget in mind, it will help us to show you the best furniture, accessories and storage for you.  We can make recommendations on what and where best, to invest your money.

2. About your bedroom

We design rooms around you and your family, and we also offer a disabled design service, which caters for people with limited mobility. Is there someone in your home that has special requirements? Is space needed for a wheelchair to manoeuvre?

How much storage would you like? It’s a good time to de-clutter and take unused or unwanted clothes to the charity shop. Think about long hanging space for dresses and coats, double hanging space for shirts, trousers and blouses, and shelves for t-shirts, jumpers and accessories.

Will there be a TV? Will it be on the wall, attached by a bracket, or popping up from the end of your bed? We can also supply pop-up TVs.

3. Scrapbook

In addition, to help you plan your bedroom, once you’ve worked out your budget, what about starting a scrapbook? Local newsagents, Post Offices, WHSmith and Paperchase sell them. It’s a fab way to jot down all your scribbles (phone numbers, websites and ideas), as well as sticking in bits that you’ve torn out of magazines of styles, colours and textures that you like.

4. Making the most of your space

We can make the most of your room shape – the size, layout (positioning of doors and windows), and quirks (low or sloping ceilings). If space is limited, an over-the-bed unit will make the most of the space on the wall. Wardrobes with sliding or bi-fold doors save space, and corner wardrobes make good use of dead space. Hanging a door so that it opens against an unused wall, will open up a room and further save space.

5. Advice and inspiration

We can inspire your imagination and help you put together colours and designs for your bedroom. Come and see us at our showroom and we would be delighted to help get you started. We have a number of wardrobe doors on display, and a library of magazines to look through too.

Furthermore, magazines and weekend newspaper supplements also contain a lot of great ideas for designs, trends, accessories, storage and lighting. Try a couple of different publications.

Websites also have bags of ideas and inspiration, and we love this one:
