Bedroom Decoration And Bedroom Furnishing Tips And Tricks. Your Bed

Aug 26, 2008
I have been writing on decorating a bedroom and choosing great bedroom furniture, to achieve the bedroom that you've always wanted. Today I want to look at one specific item of bedroom furniture, your bed. Because the bed you choose has a big bearing on the success of your bedroom decoration efforts.

And the effect that your choice of bed has isn't just restricted to the way the bedroom looks and feels, but also how well you sleep, and that's as important as just about anything else about your bedroom.

Basically your bed, and the bedding that you choose to use on it, sets the scene, or theme, of your bedroom. You might find that if you want a colorful contemporary feel to your bedroom but you also want that antique four poster bed that the two won't necessarily work together.

You need to spend some time thinking about the overall theme of your bedroom, and the bed you choose may well strongly influence that. Some beds are invisible and it doesn't matter, the duvet cover for example, and the valance together cover the entire bed and you can't see the bed at all, just the bedding. But some beds have a very specific look and if you want one of those, like for example the antique four poster bed, you need to make sure that the theme you select for your overall bedroom look fits in with the theme set by the bed.

Remember that there are many different types of beds too, and do some homework before you choose. Many of the different types of bed are actually a different type of mattress. An air bed for example is in fact an air mattress, or simply a mattress filled with air instead of springs or some other type of material. The amount of air, or the softness of the mattress can be controlled by the user to produce a mattress that is adjusted perfectly for their requirements.

Similarly a water bed is a bed with a mattress filled with water. The author can testify to how good a good water bed can be, he used a water bed for some years and it produced probably the most comfortable sleep possible.

Or you could just go for a platform bed. This is pretty much as it's described. A platform on which is placed the mattress of your choice. So all you need to do is to decide on the mattress, and you've got yourself a bed. A platform bed is often used in conjunction with a futon mattress.

So when it comes to selecting the bed for the bedroom remember you have to make a number of choices. You need to select the look and style of the bed you want as well as the type of bed from a comfort point of view. And if you're going for a regular mattress, instead of, say an air or water bed type of mattress, you then need to research some of the different considerations for buying a mattress.

So there's a lot to think of when it comes to buying a bed. But remember, the bed you choose is a critical part of the bedroom decoration process, and one of the first things you should decide on. Everything else flows from your choice of bed.
