|No matter the size of your bedroom or your budget, there is no reason why even the smallest of homes can’t enjoy a stylish bedroom interior.
Be it your own master bedroom, a spare guest room-come-storage-space or a kids' room, each interior requires something a little different. Our Interior Designer, Nicole, suggests asking yourself two questions when styling an interior: who is using the space and what are they using it for? With these questions in mind, we’ve put together a list of bedrooms used by three different types of individual and looked into what key pieces we'd recommend to suit the user. Read on to explore a selection of bedroom inspiration and our key ideas for each room that simply shouldn’t be missed!
The Master Bedroom
A Space To Kick Back & Relax
As an interior you are likely to spend time in almost every day, there should be absolutely no compromise when it comes to styling your own bedroom exactly how you’d like it. And there’s nothing quite like the thought of your very own bed on your commute home from the office or after a long day on the road (in fact, just thinking about it at 4pm in the afternoon is making us feel all snuggly). The beautiful master bedroom should be a cherished interior; a space to relax, unwind and escape the stresses of the day.
Choose A Divan Bed
Comfort and functionality are key for the master bedroom. That’s why we think a divan bed is the only viable choice. It satisfies the necessity for these two components in equal proportion. Unlike a bedstead, a divan base sees springs built into the frame for extra suspension. As a bed that is likely to see an occupant almost every night of the week, this sprung support provides additional comfort that’s built to withstand long-term use.
So, that’s comfort covered. But what about functionality? Brands like Vispring provide a range of easy to use underbed drawers which are ideal for storing all kinds of items, from bed linen and shoes to a place to hide Christmas presents. Hypnos offer a similar selection but also include what they like to call SuperStorage. This option fully utilises the storage capabilities of the entire underside of your bed, whilst the hydraulic springs give you the ability to effortlessly lift your mattress in true superhero style!
Perfect For Smaller Bedrooms
Underbed storage is a great option for the small master bedroom as it conserves space whilst utilising every inch of storage available. It also doesn’t interrupt your bedroom scheme with an abundance of wardrobes, chests of drawers or dressers in small rooms where living space is essential.
The Guest Bedroom
Simple vs. Statement
The spare or guest bedroom can be one of two things. It can be a place for you to pursue your most desired guest bedroom decorating ideas, perhaps a vibrant or daring scheme that might not be suited to your master interior. Alternatively, this room could be more pared back, offering a comfortable and relaxing space to welcoming guests. Less often used, the guest bedroom might act as your dressing room when unoccupied (or alternatively an extremely spacious walk in wardrobe).
A Stylish Bedstead
The guest bedroom may warrant a smaller investment in terms of the bed. So, whereas you may have indulged in a comfortable divan for your own room, a bedstead with a comfortable mattress is the way to go here. This is a great move for a range of reasons. Firstly, a bedstead offers a different look to your master bedroom’s boxy divan which might be more suited to a contrasting interior scheme. Better yet, there may not be so much need for the extensive suspension and support of a divan bed and so you can keep costs down here by investing in a less complex bed frame that is equally as stylish. Often priced lower than a divan, the humble bedstead is a great option for revamping the spare bedroom on a budget.
Choose a Quality Mattress
Even though a bedstead doesn’t see the additional support of a sprung divan base, you can still ensure that your guests have a great night’s sleep in utmost comfort by choosing a high-quality mattress. Handcrafted, Vispring and Hypnos offer unrivalled comfort, creating specialist mattresses for exclusive use on bedsteads. No need to worry about slat damage, these sumptuous mattresses are made with an additional layer for extra protection and longevity.
A Room for a Range of Uses
Alternatively, the spare bedroom might act as an extension of your master bedroom. If it’s a makeshift dressing room, investing in a beautiful dressing table and floor mirror are a guest bedroom essential. Whereas, if this room acts as more of a dumping ground for anything and everything (followed by a mass tidy up when guests are scheduled to stay!), you might seek out additional storage furniture pieces such as wardrobes and chests of drawers or even a desk if the spare room is also your home office.
The Kids' Bedroom
Their Own Stamp
Kids' bedrooms should be fun, exciting and full of personality. However, if they’re somewhere between child and teenager, they might be seeking a more grown up style bedroom. This shouldn’t entail a mature and sophisticated interior scheme, however. Instead, this room should still sing your child’s personality but can be matured a little with fun accessories.
Model Hot Air Balloons
To achieve the perfect balance of a cool theme without being childlike, hot air balloons by Authentic Models are a great choice. These decorative model balloons are loved by customers and our team alike. They make great decorations for girls, boys, children and adults of all ages. Interiors blogger, Nicola Broughton aka. "The Girl with the Green Sofa" has used some of own very own Authentic Models balloons in her son Alfie’s bedroom. She has used them to really show off how these charming balloons can bring a sense of adventure and excitement into a space. She states: “We wanted this room to be fun, but we also wanted to create a room that would educate him too, without him even realising it”.
Easy to Use Storage
If you don't own one already, a storage chest like this one is great for the kids’ bedroom. Instead of your typical bedroom storage options, a box or chest is easy for children to use and might just encourage them to tidy up more often, making putting away toys and games quick and efficient.

An Experimentation of Colour & Style
Taking bedroom inspiration from Nicola Broughton's maximalist style, this space created by Hypnos exudes a sense of excitement. Create a statement feature wall with one of Farrow & Ball's floral or botanical paper prints - we'd recommend Helleborus, Atacama or Wisteria. Next, choose an upholstered headboard with sweeping lines like this one for a touch of elegance. Complete the look with a contrast of shapes, hues and metallics - the Catania Side Table, the Trapezium Chair and the Bouilotte Lampshade.
