Most people tend to oversimplify bedroom furniture shopping because there are only a few essentials needed – a bed frame, mattress, bedroom storage and a pair of bedside tables.

But there’s more than meets the eye to creating your bedroom sanctuary. Here are 5 things to note:

1. Pick the Right Bed Frame for Bedroom Size & Habits

The first thing we usually think of when choosing a bed frame is its design. A full wooden bed frame exudes a modern and timeless look such as our Logan bed, with its clean lines and minimalistic silhouette

The Joseph bed is also a stellar choice which has an elevated base that makes the bed appear to be floating mid-air. It also comes with a fabric headboard for additional comfort.

Enjoy reading in bed? Bed frames with padded headboards are ideal, although adding a variety of throw cushions and pillows also works.

The popular Adams bed’s upholstered headboard is made with quality fabric and angled for supreme comfort to provide an optimal lounging experience.

2. A Comfortable Mattress Goes Beyond Back Support

One man’s rest is another’s disturbed sleep. Apart from a mattress’ ergonomic support, other features such as the type of fabric used also makes a big difference.

A Comfortable Mattress Goes Beyond Back Support

Got sensitive skin? Look for a mattress top that’s made of organic cotton fabric such as the Alber mattress. It not only helps reduce skin irritations, it also breathes better. And because it absorbs moisture well and dries fast, it helps eliminate excessive sweating.

In fact, there’s nothing worse than waking up at night because the mattress feels too hot. If you overheat easily, select a mattress with cooling fabric like the Cornell mttress. Its organic fabric has a cooling technology perfect for hot climates in Singapore.

3. Don’t Overlook the Bedside Table

Bedside tables are incredibly convenient for placing items you reach for daily, can even take your interior design game up a notch.

For small rooms, a sleek and compact bedside table is sufficient for essentials like reading glasses, mobile phone and watch. If you need more storage, bedside tables that feature generous double drawers are best.

If you’re looking for something different, try our Mika end table out for size – it comes in a cylindrical silhouette and has plenty of storage room for you to stow away your essentials.

4. Turn Your Bedroom Storage into a Vanity

Bedroom storage like dressers and sideboards not only complete the look of your bedroom, but are essential for organising small clothing items and accessories.

If you prefer a vertical orientation for your storage configurations, dressers usually feature a single column of drawers which makes it perfect for narrower spaces with a tighter fit without having to compromise on storage space.

A great space-saving tip is to turn your storage furniture into a vanity area by leaning or hanging a mirror above. Decorate the top of your dresser and sideboard with personal trinkets or display your favourite perfumes and colognes.

5. Make it personal and comfy with tactile add-ons

To add personality and visual interest to your bedroom, it’s important to style your room with soft, tactile pieces and décor accents that reflect your sense of style. It will also make things comfier and more relaxing for you.

A pouf (or two) is good way for adding comfort to your bedroom. It can double up as seating or a footstool, and can be placed around the room according to your needs.
