You’ve Got a Mattress, Now Design a Welcoming Bedroom to Sleep In

The single most important thing you need to get a good night’s sleep is a great mattress, which is why so many people choose to make this their top priority. But having a bedroom that’s warm, welcoming, and comfortable is just as important.

To make your bedroom the relaxing haven you need it to be, you’ll need to think about a few key aspects of design.


Why is a Mattress the Most Important Thing?

A mattress will dictate not only how well you sleep, but your general health as well. 92% of people agree that a good mattress will promote a good sleeping pattern, and this is because it will eliminate uncomfortable back pain, stop tossing and turning and eliminate stress.

A bed that features the mattress that best fits your needs should be the focal point of your bedroom.

Choose a Beautiful Bed Frame

All mattresses need a suitable bed frame to rest on, and as many frame comes with built in headboards or noticeable features you’ll need to choose one that complements your bedroom aesthetic too.

Most good mattress suppliers sell bed frames, so ask to see their selection when you’re choosing your mattress to be able to find something suitable.

Depending on your design preference, bed frames can be made of wood, metal, and even upholstered in fabric, so there’s no end to the choices available to you.


Add Complementary Colors

You won’t be able to relax in your bedroom if your eyes are swarmed with contrasting colors and prints in your walls. Choose a color scheme, consider just one contrasting color for effect, and stick to this. Greys, creams and muted blues are popular choices due to their calming effect.

If you enjoy prints, stick to one or two to avoid clashing palettes, and fill in with simple, plain furnishings.


Draw the Eye With Your Bedding

One area you can be playful in is your bedding. To start, choose pillows and a duvet set that you love, and one that suits the overall look of the bedroom. Then select covers to add on top, with extra cushions and throws for a plush look. Popular choices include plain white sheets with a large bedspread of your color choice, or bold prints to contrast with an otherwise simple space.

If you still need a mattress as a canvas to build your bedroom upon, speak to a trusted mattress supplier about the options available to you.
