It’s the room of the house that we easily spend the most time in, so it pays to invest in our bedrooms. But what exactly can be done to spruce up your sleep space? From lighting to bedding, artwork to plant-life, here are seven simple upgrades that’ll instantly transform your bedroom.
Good quality, breathable bed linen will give you the best chance of a good sleep, every time. For luxurious, high quality bedding that doesn't break the bank, look to Beddable. Using sustainably-sourced cotton, the brand produces specially designed sets that include everything you need to make the perfect bed. This grey duvet set in ultra soft washed cotton will help to regulate your body temperature while looking great in the process.
A bedside table is a bedroom must-have. This sleek and simple side table by Copenhagen-based studio GamFratesi for Hem is the perfect minimalist addition to any bedroom, serving as an ideal perch for books, candles and other bedroom essentials.
The quickest and perhaps easiest way to spruce up a bedroom is to fill those empty walls. Artwork can work on many levels, from providing a colour contrast, to offering inspiration to those who work from home. A good place to start is with Peytil, an art project founded by Eitil Thorén Due, which boasts a collection of graffiti-like, fashion portraits and line drawings, which will add a dose of character to your walls.
While not strictly bound to the bedroom, pyjamas are so closely associated with it, it would be rude not to include them here. This Piglet pair is about as good as they get. Made with 100% natural stonewashed flax, this set comes with white pearl buttons and navy piping, ensuring they look as good around the house as they feel to sleep in.
An alternative to a bedside lamp, a wall light is an elegant option that makes reading at night a breeze. Industville’s space saving light takes on the brand’s distinctly industrial feel with its pewter finish and built-in cage, bringing a rustic edge to your bedroom.
Bring some life – literally – to your bedroom with some greenery in the form of a plant pot. For something with a bit more character than your standard pot, you can't go past this playful I.V. plant pot from London-based homewares label Vitamin. Ideal for those of us who tend to neglect our plants, its drip feed helpfully acts as a reminder as to when it needs topping up.
Beyond Object is renowned for its imaginative homewares that defy expectations and this wall clock does exactly that. It acts not only as a functional timepiece but as a sculpture in its own right, with a unique shape that's designed to curve along corners, columns or shelves. It's just the decorative element you need to pep up your bedroom.
