Bedroom furniture can cause clutter and make rooms with limited space seem even smaller. So my top tip when buying bedroom furniture is to consider getting mirrored pieces.
Mirrored furniture looks good (in my opinion), it reflects light (making rooms look brighter) and it also makes rooms appear larger than they really are. It is a simple trick which is very effective.
Over the past couple of years I have been using mirrored furniture more and more. I usually buy online from Fabulous Furniture who have a stylish range for reasonable prices. But I have also used other retailers and most recently a rather nice piece from eBay.
You can also find good ideas using Pinterest which is a photo sharing site and great for home decor inspiration.
What I love about mirrored console tables and wardrobes is that they can be used for modern and more traditional rooms. You just have to be ready for the rather bright and striking appearance they have.
Other than using these items of furniture to create the illusion of more space, I recommend using colours which are warm. Red and gold are classics for a bedroom, although too bold for some people. I find the combination of a rich, deep red and gold is comforting in the winter months.
If you want to be stylish and use the latest colour schemes, then go ahead for your lounge or other downstairs rooms. But if you want a nice, cosy bedroom then I highly recommend going with the warming colours, which combined with a few pieces of mirrored furniture will really enhance your sleeping quarters.
