How to create the ultimate luxury Bedroom
We all spend a significant amount of time in our bedrooms, yet often it is the last room we really pay any attention to when it comes to choosing a decorating scheme. The latest trends for bedrooms are based on replicating the style you would expect to see in a superior five-star hotel.
The starting point for any room should always be the flooring. Marble is always an excellent option for a luxurious feel and will never be out of style. Unfortunately, marble is expensive and difficult to lay – however floor tiles with a marble effect can make a great substitute on a budget.
Rugs are another option to give a softcover for your feet when you hop out of bed. The choices are endless and many styles will look good on a marble effect floor. Sheepskin and other imitation fur effect rugs will instantly add warmth and lend to a romantic bedroom theme. For a modern bedroom theme, you could opt for a classic wool or wool effect rug.
The next decision is your style of furniture. The bed is the focal point for any bedroom and also the largest piece of furniture, so needs to be considered carefully. A good quality bed could last a lifetime and is definitely a wise investment. Dark wood furniture and a modern four-poster will make an amazing feature in any room. If your taste is more modern, then a large bespoke soft texture headboard could make a real statement.
Now to choose wall coverings. Contrasting natural wall coverings work perfectly with a marble effect floor or wooden flooring. With our extensive range of wall coverings you can add shine, texture or bold prints to a bedroom. Feature walls are still very much on-trend, allow you to indulge in more expensive wall coverings and aren’t too much trouble if you want to change or update in the future.
Shutters look great with marble flooring and fit well with a modern theme. You could opt for natural wood or painted depending on the style of the rest of your furniture.
Blinds are a less expensive option to shutters and natural wooden blinds will also look great with an exotic or Mediterranean theme. Curtains soften a bedroom with marble effect floors and marble or modern effect wall coverings can be done by the addition of luxurious floor-length curtains. Velvet or silk will always add glamour and work well with any feminine style. Alternatively, linen effect curtains will complement a more modern design.
This is the fun part. Your bed covers need to complement the chosen theme. To emulate a five-star hotel, stick with high-quality cotton sheets, duvets covers and pillowcases in plain cream or white. You can then add interest and colour with velvet or silk cushions.
