Just Moved In? Here’s Everything You Need to Set Up Your Dream Bedroom

These essentials will make your new space as comfortable and stylish as possible.

Moving into a new home makes for a great time to invest in some fresh furniture. Whether you're relocating to a rental with friends or you've bought your first property, your bedroom is one room you can truly make your own and create a relaxing sleep sanctuary. Because at the end of a long day, there's nothing more wonderful than being able to retreat somewhere comfortable and inviting.

From lighting to bedside tables, we're sharing the essential bedroom items that will make your new space as stylish and relaxing as possible.

1. Bedhead

As the bed is the centrepiece of the room, it's worth putting in some effort here to make it look fabulous. And if you've ever walked into a bedroom and thought something looked slightly off or incomplete, there's a good chance it was because the bed had no bedhead or frame. A stylish bedhead can completely transform the look and feel of a bedroom.

2. Bedside tables

It goes without saying that when it comes to bedroom design, one of the most useful items to have is a bedside table. A good bedside table should complement your lifestyle, providing extra storage if you need it, or a surface for your reading light.

But this convenient nightstand isn't just the perfect place to keep your bedtime essentials. A beautiful design can make a room look more put together and enhance the overall aesthetic. It also acts as a stage for a stylish lamp and any beautiful decor you may want to have on show. 

3. Bedside table lamp

Lighting is central to setting the mood and ambience of a space. Good lighting design can enhance the functionality and aesthetics of a room by creating the desired atmosphere and highlighting key features of the design.

In a bedroom, you typically want warm lighting as it's less harsh and more soothing than blue light. A lamp on your bedside table lamp will come in handy if you're relaxing in bed, reading, or if you need to get up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom.

4. A good mattress

Given how much time we spend in bed, it's important to find a mattress that suits your sleep position as this will have a significant impact on your quality of sleep.

Side sleepers: A medium to soft mattress, such as a memory foam or hybrid mattress.

Back sleepers: A medium to firm mattress, such as a latex or hybrid mattress, can offer the necessary support and prevent back pain.

Stomach sleepers: A firmer mattress, such as an innerspring or hybrid mattress, can provide the necessary support and prevent back pain.

Combined sleepers: Your best option is a medium to firm hybrid mattress that can provide the right balance of support and cushioning.

5. High-quality bedding

New bed linen is one décor update that will pay for itself in the long run. If you've already got beige or white linen, now is the time to choose a more vibrant combination – and vice versa. Use our Build Your Own Bundle virtual tool to create your ultimate combo and be rest assured that the investment will keep you sound asleep each night.

6. Mirror

A full-length or vanity mirror is essential for getting ready in the morning or before heading out for the night. They also create the illusion of more space and light in a room, especially if they are strategically placed to reflect natural light or other light sources. This is a big plus in small rooms.

7. A calming scent

A pleasant-smelling room will make it all the more enjoyable for you when you retreat to bed each evening. Certain scents, such as lavender, chamomile, and vanilla, are known to have calming properties that can help you to fall asleep faster and sleep more soundly.
