Four easy ways to style your bedroom when moving out
Moving out of home for the first time is pretty exciting, at least once you finish the dreaded task of packing and unpacking all of your stuff.
Whether it's a cosy one bed apartment or a share house with mates, it’s all about your new found freedom and making your new space feel like home.
To help you out, we've pulled together some handy hints that'll get your bedroom looking great in no time. No floordrobe required.
Here are our 4 Easy Ways to Style Your Bedroom When Moving Out.
Easy Storage Hack
Buy a bed with sneaky underbed or headboard storage
Without Tetris level storage skills, you'll probably run out of places to put things pretty quickly. When you do, you might be tempted start piling stuff up on the floor or using your armchair as a makeshift wardrobe.
We’ve got a better solution. Look for a bed that comes with additional storage space, hidden away under the bed or in the headboard. Perfect for turning wasted space into a storage lifesaver without sacrificing on style.
If you are struggling for space, check out our range of bed frames that feature additional storage.
Bring in Nature
Liven up your room with a plant (or two)
Indoor plants are a great way to freshen up your new room without breaking the bank. And who wouldn't want their own personal supply of purified oxygen?
Most plants can be near impossible to keep alive, even when you’re following all of the instructions.
Luckily, there are some plants that don't need much attention, so even the worst offender among us can still enjoy a splash of greenery at home.
These plants thrive on neglect, tolerate low light, and can go for long periods without needing water - perfect for the forgetful plant owner.
The easy way to a more comfortable night's sleep
Moving house is exhausting, so you'll need a good night's sleep to recover after all that lifting, carrying and sorting. But how can you, when your mattress is nearly as old as you are?
Sure, you might think your trusty mattress is doing the job but it's probably impacting your sleep more than you realise. Upgrading to a new mattress has never been easier, thanks to the invention of the ‘mattress-in-a-box’.
The 'mattress-in-a-box' is a popular choice right now, and for good reason. It is easy to buy and take home (since it can fit in the back of a regular size car), easy to move into a small space or up a flight of stairs and super comfortable to sleep on.
The only downside to most mattresses that come in a box is that you can’t try them out before you buy. We all know how essential it is to lay on different mattresses before you settle on what you like - so why should the 'mattress in a box' be any different?
Boxed by Dreamsense is a mattress-in-a-box with no downside! You can try it out at a Bedshed store before you commit to sleeping on it for the next 10 years! And, even after you’ve taken it home, if it doesn’t feel quite right you can exchange it under Bedshed's 60 Night Comfort Guarantee (T&C’s apply).
Add Some Colour
Throw in a fun piece of furniture or a rug
If you're renting, walls are often a no-go area. However, that doesn't mean you can’t add a bit of personality to your new space.
A brightly coloured chair, some textured cushions or a patterned rug can be the perfect feature against neutral walls and floors.
Even if you’ve bought your first home, keeping the walls and floors clean and simple means you can easily mix things up with a new style - rather than patching and painting every time you want to try a new trend.
