Turn your bedroom into a blissful space with a bespoke, handmade bed

PROMOTIONAL FEATURE

Your bedroom should be a sanctuary – a place to relax, to snooze, to find a moment of reflection.

So it’s vital to choose the right bed, headboard and more. Or take it one step further – tailor it to your very own tastes… 

A bed of one’s own

The plethora of beds available can be daunting – how to narrow it down? Start by deciding to choose one that fits in with your grand design. After all that hard work building your own home or completely remodelling it, you don’t want the furniture to be an afterthought.

You can buy an off-the-peg bed if you find the right one, but a company like SleepStyle will help make that process so much easier. Their British-made beds come in a variety of styles and sizes, but they’re manufactured to order, with custom sizes available. That means you can dream up your perfect bed size to fit your space and have it made.

Want to see how your bed and headboard will fit in with your colour scheme without having to commit to the whole thing? You can request free swatches in all available hues, from Mink Crushed Velvet to Fushsia Chenille.

 

Hidden benefits

If you want your bedroom to be uncluttered – or are aiming for a serene, minimalist look – consider a storage bed. Beds come with a number of different drawers, allowing you to keep spare bedding close to where you need it and freeing up space elsewhere.

You can also opt for storage beds with a gas mechanism that lifts up the entire bed base – with way more storage than your average divan drawers. Have a look at more of the range on SleepStyle’s Instagram Page - @sleepstyle_ltd.

 

Fabulous finishing furniture

To complement your made-to-order bed, you can also select from some stunning headboards, footstools and upholstered coffee tables. Well-padded Art Deco and Chesterfield headboards are all available in the entire fabric range, providing not just comfort but also glamour.

Graceful footstools which can double as plush coffee tables are another way to add a practical style note to your bedroom. Choose your fabric to match or complement your bed and headboard, and get ready to snooze in style.
