Styling Your Bedroom - Our Advice


The bedroom is a special place in anyone’s home, a room that allows you to rest, relax and prepare for the new day head. It’s also a private space where you can be yourself away from the world, which is why it is so important to ensure you create the right mood and ambience.


There’s a lot to take into consideration when buying bedroom furniture. From size and style, to colour and cost, when you buy the right piece, it will remain in place for years to come. Our bedroom furniture guide covers all the basics, so you know what to look out for and what to avoid.

Choosing the Right Size of Furnishing

When buying any new bedroom furniture you have to take into consideration the size and dimensions of the room. Whether you are buying a modern chest of drawers, bunk beds for kids or fitted wardrobes UK-style, you don’t want the room to feel cramped or overcrowded.


The larger the room the more space you have to play with, but not everyone has that kind of luxury. It also depends on whether you are starting with an empty room or adding or swapping out existing furnishing. Try to avoid buying too many large pieces that could make the room feel compact, as the bedroom is a place for relaxation at the end of a long hard day.


If the room also has alcoves and unique angles, then try to make good use of these. Consider whether you need a modern bedside table and the type of bed frame that will be positioned there. If you want a larger bed than the standard size, you’ll need to think about how king size bed dimensions will fit into the room.


Once you have all the essentials covered, see what type of space you have left to add in any luxurious extras that won’t dramatically reduce the size of the room.

Maximise the Storage You Have Available

Storage is everything when it comes to your bedroom. Whether it’s stashing away clothes or bed linen, you need to make the most of what you have as space typically disappears very quickly.


We deliver wardrobes UK wide that vary in size and style and you’ll have a clearer idea on how large you can go once you have established the dimensions of the room. If you have a small bedroom you might want to consider removing the doors and replacing it with elegant drapes or a similar covering. The swing radius can limit how it affects other furnishings in the room and without it in place, you have more space to play with.


You’ll be surprised where you can find extra storage space in the bedroom with a little creative thinking. Modern beside tables often feature helpful draws to store handheld items, as do glass mirror dressing tables which have space to keep smaller accessories. There is usually space on-top of the wardrobe, although be careful not to stack too high so it becomes an eyesore.


If you are dealing with a child’s room, buying the right bunk beds for kids can offer a solution. Single tier bunk beds create plenty of space underneath for storage, making it easy to keep the room tidy at the end of the day. Kid’s beds never take up too much room, especially when they are little, so you should have enough space to have the sort of storage you need.

Finding Your Style

Every bedroom should reflect the personality of the person sleeping in it. Most people spend between 40-60 hours there each week, so you want to be comfortable and at ease with the décor.


Are you a minimalist you prefers clean lines and modern designs? Or are you more of a traditionalist who enjoys the look and texture of timber furniture?

There’s also no rule that says all of your bedroom furniture needs to be of the same kind, style or colour. At the end of the day, you set the tone for the bedroom as it will be your room to sleep in.


You may not be able to afford to buy everything you need at once, which means you will slowly add pieces as you go. While this can mean you may not be able to source furnishings that were part of the original set, you can create your own unique look in the bedroom that will still look stunning with the interior décor you have in place.

Essential Items For Every Bedroom

We all have different tastes and needs and that is reflected in the homes we furnish for ourselves. However there are some things that are absolutely essential in every bedroom:


The Bed

Whether it’s kid’s beds or for an adult room, size and comfort are the two key factors here. Make sure you have enough length and width and that the bed frame is strong enough to allow you to sleep without creating any aches or pains.


Chest of drawers

  • It doesn’t matter whether you opt for traditional or modern chest of drawer sets, you need somewhere to store underwear, bed linen and other small pieces of clothing items.


  • The wardrobe will keep your everyday clothes together inside a dry space, away from any moisture build up in the room. The size and shape will depend on how much room you have to play with.


  • If you have room, a glass mirror dressing table gives you storage and place to sit and prepare yourself for the day ahead, which is a good idea if you aren’t a fan of full length mirrors. A traditional or modern bedside also helps to store books, tissues, smartphones, glasses and other small items that you may want close to hand in bed.


It’s Time To Go Shopping

Now that you have a good idea of the size of the bedroom you need to fill, along with the style, shape and colour of the furnishing you want to buy, now comes the really fun part – ordering the items you want!


Of course, budget comes into play here, but you’ll find that is something we take into account at Furniture Maxi and always ensure fair pricing without compromising on quality. Take a look at the wonderful bedroom products in our store and you’ll be able to buy everything you need all in one place.
