The bedroom is a peaceful haven in which, at the end of a busy day, you can relax, lulling yourself into a night’s rest. On waking refreshed, you are ready to face another day!
But we often leave the bedroom until last when it comes to spending time and effort in creating the perfect bedroom landscape.
The reclaimed wood appeal is understandable. There is a romance and a history to every piece which is unknown and unique, perfect for us to romanticise about where the wood has been and what it has seen. But it is more than that – by using reclaimed wood items we satisfy our own need to leave a less negative impact on our planet and environment.
And so, with this in mind, the Editor has chosen four exceptionally beautiful reclaimed pieces for the bedroom.
Reclaimed wood furniture in the bedroom is ideal in so many ways and this beautiful sleigh-style bed from our newly introduced Dulwich range is a lighter reclaimed wood range. Great for the small and larger bedroom, the bed impacts on the space without imposing.
Complete with bedroom storage options, the Dulwich range is expected to be one of our most popular this year.
As well as being stylish, the bedroom needs to offer versatile storage solutions for everything from clothes to shoes and more, as well as spare bed linen and towels.
In some ways, you may think that to meet all these storage needs, that solutions will be complex. But sometimes, the best solutions are the simplest. A wooden blanket box is a versatile addition, with some not only adding storage but seating too.
But the Editor’s pick is the large rustic wooden blanket box from the Winchester collection. Complete with fantastic domed lid, there is more than enough bedroom storage for everything and anything within the chest.
Chest of drawers
A staple of every bedroom must surely be the chest of drawers. With a combination of different sizes of drawers, a high-quality chest can be with you for many years to come.
However, we find that many customers still think of reclaimed wood furniture as rough-sawn, lacking the refinement to be used in some styles. But as this bedroom chest of drawers from the English Beam collection shows, there can be a refinement to reclaimed wood.
Bringing it all together means introducing an element that frames the room. There are various ways to do this, one of which is to look at the floor.
Large rugs are ideal in so many ways – they are the carpeted platform on which bedroom furniture sits, such as drawers, the bed and so on. But a common mistake is to choose a rug that is too small.
It either needs to frame the bedroom by creating a border of floor around the edges of the room, or by sitting underneath a major piece of furniture, like the bed.
The Editor’s pics are the large rugs from the Louis de Poortere range, perfect for framing reclaimed bedroom furniture as well as bespoke furniture options from the English Beam collection.
Is your bedroom a stylish, peaceful haven? If not, why not make it one?
