If there’s one thing I hate it’s sleeping in a bedroom that’s full of clutter and clothes everywhere. I always try to clear up my bedroom as best I can but unfortunately my boyfriend doesn’t seem to share my sense of tidiness and it always ends up with clothes and what not spread about the room! When I do get a chance to clean and tidy the room though, there are a couple of ideas I have in mind on how to turn it from something that’s average into something beautiful. Of course there are many ways that you can decorate and design a bedroom and it would literally take me years to write down every little thing you can do, but for the sake of this blog, let’s have a look at 3 to 4 things that you can do to improve a bedroom. These are some of the interior designs and techniques that interest me and I hope they interest you also!

Have furniture fitted

One of the ideas that I saw a few months ago on the internet was to have a large wardrobe sort of built into the wall so it becomes part of the room rather than just in the way. There were some great examples of this that I saw online and I did a bit more research and found out that there are businesses that do this for a living. I searched for fitted furniture in Essex, which is where I live, and sure enough there was a business that had some perfect examples of what I was aiming for. However, I want to be more ambitious and try it myself. Ok this might take quite a lot of time and I’m not sure I have the expertise but I have a really good friend who’s brilliant with this sort of thing so I’m hoping he might give me a helping hand!

Install a sunken bed

This idea will require a bit of DIY (that’s ok for me as I like to build stuff!) but when finished it will really look spectacular. A sunken bed removes any height from the bedframe and makes it near enough the same level as the flooring. It’s certainly a unique feature and one that I desperately want to have in my bedroom!

A hammock perhaps

Ok so this is probably not going to be installed as a main bed, however it would be great to have in the corner of the room to maybe chill out in! Even better, I thought about putting it in the corner of the room that near to a window so you can have an amazing view whilst lounging around! I even have the corner all picked out and ready. I just need to persuade the other half to let me buy one and install it now!

Wall mounted television

So this is probably a lot easier to do than the sunken bed idea, but it will still require a bit of DIY but hey thats why this blog is here! We have a TV in our bedroom but it’s on a stand and takes up quite a sizeable amount of space in our bedroom. Wall mounting it be the perfect idea to not only save room but to give our bedroom a much more modern feel!

I’ve never really liked the idea of a sunken bed. Something about wanting to flop on it at the end of the day but ending up whacking your head along the edge just turns me off. And I think bedsheet removalas and cleanups might just be a tad more difficult with a bed that’s recessed…
