Summer is the time you usually have a lot of time on your hands, especially this year. With less options available to travel, more and more of us have taken to staying at home.
But how can you use this time wisely? There’s nothing worse than feeling you have wasted two weeks, so you should definitely avoid doing that. It’s best to choose something practical to do, even better if there’s a way to get the whole family involved. You may choose to take up a new hobby, or adventure outside for a few day trips, or maybe you’ll choose to revamp a room in your house, like the master bedroom?
This is a great idea not only for the whole family to enjoy, but you’ll also get something out of it, like a new and improved master bedroom. Time well spent indeed!
Where do you start, though? You can either start from scratch and redesign the room from top to bottom, or just focus on the top furniture pieces you need.
If you are worried about the cost, don’t be. You can start by focusing on the furniture pieces that you will use the most. This will go a long way in ensuring that you are getting value for money.
Here are some of the top furniture pieces you’ll need to focus on.
1. Every bedroom needs a comfy bed
A comfortable bed is a must for any bedroom, obviously. There’s no way you’d get a good night’s sleep if you don’t have a good mattress to sleep on.
To know if you have a good mattress, it should be firm enough to support your lower back, side-to-side, and front-to-back. Your body should also be aligned properly, and you should not feel any pressure on your shoulders, hips, or knees. How do you know if your mattress is firm enough? Just feel the surface of the mattress when you lie down on it. If your mattress is firm enough, your hand should sink in slightly. This will allow your body to sink into the mattress.
Of course, if your mattress isn’t as lovely as it once was, it’s probably time to buy a new one. There are plenty to choose from, like a ghostbed hybrid mattress or memory foam, but make sure you research which type would suit you best. No one wants to wake up with an aching back, even more so after snoozing on a brand-new mattress.
While you’re checking the mattress, you may as well have a look at your bedframe as well. A good quality bedframe can be wooden or metal. Whichever you have, make sure it is sturdy, and it is of good quality.
You may realise that you need to invest in a new bedframe, especially if your current one is old and poor quality. Although a metal bedframe is usually more expensive, it can last longer. If your budget doesn’t allow, a wooden bed frame is a good option, too; just make sure that the wood is good quality, and the frame is sturdy.
2. Make sure your wardrobe is spacious
A wardrobe can be an item that you may not think about updating, but it is worth spending some time on it. Make sure that your wardrobe is spacious, and that it can accommodate your clothes. You’ll be spending a lot of time in your wardrobe, so make sure that it is practical, has adequate space, and that you are comfortable in it.
If you have an old wardrobe, you may want to consider getting a new one. There are lots of different wardrobe designs you can choose from, so you can even give your wardrobe a makeover. To make it even better, you can add some storage space to the wardrobe, like a shelving unit, to keep your clothes orderly and tidy.
As well as having a wardrobe, you might want to consider getting a shoe rack, especially if your wardrobe is overflowing. This will give you more space to store your clothes, and it will keep your shoes organised.
3. Don’t forget your bedside table
The bedroom is where you go to relax, and a bedside table is what you need to ensure that you are fully comfortable. Chances are you have a bedside table, but it’s just a bit tired looking. This is a perfect opportunity to get your kids, some paint and brushes, and get upcycling!
If you are using a traditional bedside table, you will need to make sure that the table has a lamp, a reading light and a phone charger. If you are using a bedside table with a drawer, you will need to make sure that the drawer is spacious enough to fit all your things.
Don’t forget to check your bedside table regularly. Older tables tend to get worn out over time, so once you’ve had it for a few years, you may want to consider getting a new one.
These are just some of the top furniture pieces that you need to focus on when revamping your master bedroom. There are plenty of other furniture pieces that you need to consider, but these are some of the top ones.
