Top 3: Innovative Bedroom Ideas

For those wanting something very cool and unique for their bedroom, these ingenious home improvements will give you some inspiration on how to style your dream home.

How to: Make the most of a small bedroom

With the right design hints and tips, your small bedroom will soon become the perfect, cosy retreat. A smaller bedroom doesn’t mean it’s any less beautiful – just follow our recommendations to breathe new life into your interior. Firstly, make sure you work from a set colour palette, which is made up of no more than 2 or 3 colours.

How to: Best know when your child is ready for a bigger bed

There is no “best” time to move your child from a single bed to a double bed. But it shouldn’t come as a surprise to see an increased number of double beds bought for young children nowadays, especially when you consider so much of a child’s time is now spent playing on tablets, communicating or doing homework on laptops or listening to music – and their bedroom is where most of this activity takes place.

Get the Trend: Vintage

In short, the best vintage bedrooms should appear as though they have been assembled over time and should be formed by a number of old world accessories. If you’re starting to plan a vintage-themed bedroom, we’d recommended that you first pick a specific time period, or work from something which you already have and love.
