How to arrange bedroom furniture

Does bedroom furniture have to match?

When it comes to your chosen level of uniformity, it’s all about personal preference. If you fancy yourself as an interior designer, mixing and matching furniture can be a fun way to flex your creativity as you cultivate the ultimate bedroom. On the flip side, a matching set can provide a very pleasing symmetrical aesthetic to give your bedroom a sharp and balanced feel. Want to see a furniture set in action? Check out what we have to offer on our website.

How to fit furniture in a small bedroom?

If your bedroom is on the smaller side, that doesn’t mean you can’t curate the ultimate safe haven. It just means you’ll have to get smart with furniture placement, maximise storage solutions and focus on what is truly essential to retain your precious floorspace! If you’re pushed for space, you could opt for one of our fabulous Ottoman beds for underbid storage.

And what about irregular shaped bedrooms?

Not all bedrooms come in perfect rectangular setups, just like us humans they can come in all shapes and sizes! All you have to do is embrace the unique nooks and crannies your space has to offer. Deploying some bookshelves or floor-to-ceiling storage can be a greatly innovative way of getting the most out of your irregularly shaped space, or it could be that mapping out your furniture helps to break up different sections of your bedroom. Experiment with your space to find what optimises your floorspace and works for you.

Are sofa beds just a good as a sofa?

Are sofa beds just a good as a sofa?

Considering buying a sofa bed, but wondering if a plain old sofa might be wiser? In case you needed convincing, we’ve come up with the best reasons to buy a sofa bed not a sofa.

  • A SOFA BED IS AS COMFORTABLE TO SIT ON AS A SOFA

Approach buying a sofa bed just like you would a sofa, checking its frame and fillings for both quality of construction and how it matches your personal preferences. Sofa bed fillings include foam (for a firmer, smart-looking seat); fibre (for soft support); or plump feathers (for a soft, squashy looking sofa). Sofa beds do tend to feel firmer than sofas, so picking one with a combination of softer cushion types – fibre seat cushions and feather back cushions, for example – will give you the best balance without compromising on the look.

  • MODERN SOFA BEDS ARE JUST AS GOOD LOOKING AS SOFAS

Gone are the days when sofa beds were lumpy, heavy pieces of furniture you felt you had to reinforce the floor for. Many, sofa beds are as chic and svelte as they’re non-bed sofa counterparts. Just look at this Mid-century modern style sofa bed (below) for proof of our point.

  • SOFA BEDS COME IN ALL SHAPES AND SIZES

Sofa beds used to be narrow two-seaters at best. Now, there are beds in a box, loveseats, two-seaters, three-seaters and L-shaped, all of which can be easily converted into sleep surfaces to suit your space and guest numbers no matter what size your home is.

Function-wise, there’s plenty of choice, too, from pull-out sleep surfaces to sofa beds with backs that fold backwards to provide an instant double bed. Choose one that suits you best: pull outwards and you’ll need plenty of floor space in front of the sofa bed; fold backwards, and you’ll need to pull out the entire sofa before you can push the back down.

  • SOFA BEDS COME WITH CLEVER, SPACE-SAVING FEATURES

We know what you’re thinking: if you’ve got a sofa bed, you’ll need somewhere to stash all that extra bedding. Well, the good news is that many sofa beds come with hidden storage. And if you don’t want to keep bedding in there, they may great places to stick all that household clutter you’ve gathered and don’t have a place for.

Some now come with pull-out tables to hold food and drink, too. If you don’t believe us take a look for yourself!

  • SOFA BEDS ARE GREAT FOR KIDS’ SLEEPOVERS

If your child’s bedroom is small, a single armchair sofa bed or bed in a box in the corner is a useful buy; failing that, a double sofa bed in the living room will accommodate them, especially as they get older and want to stay up all night watching their favourite programme on TV!

  • SOFA BEDS ARE BETTER THAN SOFAS BECAUSE THEY SAVE SPACE

In a small house, flat or flat/house-share, sofa beds for small living rooms will be invaluable, giving you a spare bedroom when you need it at the drop of a hat.

Having a sofa bed in the living room, snug, TV room or in a bedroom makes perfect sense for families in larger homes, too, where guests might be frequent, but a guest bedroom not worth the space sacrifice.
