We are now getting closer to finally being able to give our bedroom the much-needed makeover that it is desperately needing. We are currently looking for bedroom inspiration. Since moving in our house back in November every other room has taken priority over our bedroom. We haven’t done much to our bedroom as yet apart from take off the horrid wallpaper, leaving ourselves with bare walls – walls that are an awful dark blue.
We have been searching the internet for inspiration. Our bedroom we have now is much smaller to what we previously had. We previously had fitted wardrobes and sadly no longer have space for this.
Playing about with our bedroom plans and having those all important discussions, we have been hunting about for over bed storage with a corner wardrobe – this will give us added storage by using the space above our bed and also by making full use of the bedside table space too!
something like this..

We will be wanting lighting fitted in the underneath of the overbed storage. We will want these working via a switch or pull-cord that can be easily reached from bed. We will also be adding down lights to the ceiling that can work via a dimmer switch for mood lighting.
We hope to be able to fit a draw unit inside our wardrobes. By doing this we will save ourselves some floor space and this will also help to make our room feel that bit bigger. We also have draw space under our bed.
We recently purchased a new bed before moving house so our bed will just need to be looked after and treated to some new bedding to blend with our newly chosen colour scheme. One thing we didn’t do with our old bed and that was protect it with a mattress protector. We have been looking at mattress protectors from Yorkshire Linen.

Whilst browsing their site this stunning Kylie Minogue set caught my eye, how stunning is this set. You can’t beat the feeling of sinking into bed that has soft and comfortable linen.

Our TV will be mounted on the wall, we have chosen a blackout blind and curtains from Dunelm. As Ian works shifts he finds it hard to sleep during the daytime following a night shift due to the daylight. We went on the hunt for a blackout blind and found this Laura Natural blackout roller blind…..

There is nothing worse than broken sleep, especially if you have work the next day so getting your bedroom right to your ideal comfort is important. We plan to decorate our room a neutral colour and then add splashes of colour within our soft furnishings, such as a rug, cushions, bed spreads etc.
Our carpet will be a nice neutral colour that will work well with any colour that we plan to use in our bedroom.
Our plans are slowly coming together and we are so looking forward to finally having our style put into our bedroom.
Are you currently working on any home improvements?
Sounds like you’re well on the way to getting the bedroom you want. We love using throws – especially now that it’s getting colder in the UK – to add our splashes of colour. A few extra cushions on the bed never goes amiss either.
