Let us help you fall back in love with your bedroom

05th Feb 2020 Design

Do you find yourself looking around your bedroom each night and disliking what you see? Whether it's the space, style or clutter you don't like, at Kindred bedrooms we can help you fall back in love with your room.

Although the kitchen is known as the ‘heart of the home,’ we would have to argue that it’s actually the bedroom…

Whether we’re getting ready for work, having a lazy Sunday morning in bed, or winding down for a good night sleep- we spend so much time in the bedroom that it deserves to be given a special place in our hearts, and we deserve to love everything about it.

In this blog, we’re sharing how you can learn to appreciate and maximise the amount of space you have, the style of your furniture, the atmosphere of the room or the practicality of the design, providing you inspiration to transform your bedroom, or update your current set-up, and fall in love with it all over again!

1. Fall back in love with the shape and size of your room

It can be easy to get bedroom envy when you see all the spacious, perfectly shaped bedrooms in magazines and on Instagram, but at Kindred we understand that not all bedrooms are the ‘ideal’ shape and size.

In reality, quite a lot of bedrooms can be on the small side, have alcoves and cupboards, or have sloping ceilings that can pose a problem when buying furniture or designing your space- However, at Kindred, we don’t see these things as issues. We encourage you to look around your bedroom and ask yourself, ‘Am I making the most of the space I have?’

Do your wardrobes make the most of the floor-to-ceiling span, even if the ceiling is sloped? Is there room under your window that could be used for extra storage, but you’re not sure how? Is your alcove going to waste, but you’re not sure what furniture will fit? Appreciating how much room you have and what is possible to maximise your bedroom’s assets is key to falling back in love with the space!

If you’re searching for fitted furniture that can utilise your space, no matter the shape or size of your room, the Kindred Made-to-Measure Collection has been designed to allow creativity within storage; tailoring it to the exact contours of your space. Whether your rooms are small and compact, ultra-modern and minimal or grand and full of character, the Made-to-Measure Collection allows for complete versatility within design and function. Explore our full range here to see how we could help make the most of your room.


2. Fall back in love with your storage

To create the perfect wardrobe and fitted furniture, planning starts from within.

Storage is key to creating a bedroom you love spending time in. A messy bedroom can equal a messy mind, making it hard for you to wind down. If you don’t love the storage you have, or it’s not practical for what you need, it can be easy to fall into the habit of using the dreaded ‘floordrobe’– i.e. an unorganised pile of clothes and accessories on the floor that you have no motivation to put away…

We’ve all been there.

With the right storage for your needs, your belongings can be on display or organised in the perfect way for you, so you can feel motivated to keep everything in its dedicated place.

Clever, flexible and beautiful in design, our wardrobe internals have been carefully considered to work around your needs. Choose from stackable drawers, accent shelves, drawer organisers, shoe storage and pigeon units, all available in Walnut, Oak and Linen finishes. Alternatively, we can make a bespoke internal solution, tailored to your personal needs.

3. Fall back in love with your style

Trends change and so do your personal tastes, so you shouldn’t feel guilty about falling out of love with the style of your bedroom. You have two choices, you can redesign your bedroom with new furniture as a long-term solution, or, you can update the look you have with a few tweaks as a short-term fix.

If you choose to redesign your space,  Kindred has a beautiful range of modern and classic bedrooms in an array of different colours and finishes to suit any home. Your local Kindred specialist retailer will take the time to get to know you, your space and your tastes, so together you can create the perfect design to reflect your individual style. You can check out the full range via our website or by requesting a brochure. 

If it’s a short-term solution you’re searching for whilst you save money for a full renovation, why not try mixing up your current handles, opting for a new colour or finish to bring a new lease of life to your furniture, or, you could change-up your textiles, choosing a different duvet cover, a new rug or new curtains to introduce a new colour palette to the space. If you’re lucky enough to have a large room or great floor space, you could also try a new layout, moving your furniture around to give the room a new feel.

4. Fall back in love with the practicality

A bedroom isn’t just for sleeping- it can also double as a dressing room, a home office and sometimes even a child’s playroom. Whatever your daily routine, your bedroom needs to be able to keep up and offer the practical solutions to complement your lifestyle.

If your bedroom needs to be the perfect place to get ready, why not consider including a dressing table in your design? Integrated or stand-alone, a dressing table creates a beautiful bedroom statement whilst giving you an ideal place to store all your essentials and take some ‘me time’ in the morning rush.

Do you work from home? Fall back in love with your bedroom by integrating a desk into your design, giving yourself a dedicated work space so your bed can stay as a place to relax.

5. Fall back in love with the atmosphere

Lastly, a great way to fall back in love with your space is to improve the overall atmosphere. This can be anything from how clean your room is, to the temperature, to how well it is lit. Take a step back and assess how your room makes you feel and why.

Does it feel cluttered?

Then why not take some time to have a sort out and give everything a new place?

Does it feel cold?

Bring warmth to your space with a thick rug or cover your bed in a chunky throw.

Is your bedroom lacking a cosy feeling?

Why not play around with lighting and candles to create ambience? Kindred has a range of lighting options to bring life to a space, whether you choose to delicately frame your wardrobe with our LED strip lighting, or add our internal spot lights to brighten up your wardrobe and make a show of your internals- our lighting options will help bring that cosy feeling you’ve been searching for.
