As the most private room in your house, bedrooms demands special attention. Did you know that the average person spends up to a third of their life in bed? This fact alone is enough to emphasize the importance of creating a well-planned and relaxing space in which to sleep.

Today, most bedrooms must at least provide a dressing area and storage space for clothes, and some do more – doubling as an office space, private living room or, in the case of children, playroom. Ensuring that all these additional needs are catered for, and that the room is still a relaxing and soothing place to be, can be a challenging task. But smart planning and ergonomic furniture options will make it a lot easier for you.
