Think about this... we spend more time in our beds than any other piece of furniture in our homes. Not only do we spend time dreaming and sleeping, we also watch tv, work on our laptops, scroll on our phones, read books, cuddle with our dog, our cat, our kids. Your bed is possibly the most important piece of furniture in your home!
I have a client who has moved to our area and she is decorating her new condo. She works remotely for a company and she sheepishly admitted to me that she does quite a bit of morning work from her bed! So having the right bed, the right support, and the right atmosphere is as important to her as any other room in her home.
I told her she shouldn't be the last bit embarrassed that she spends several hours of her workday in her bedroom. Because, do you know...that many powerful, productive people work from their bed?
Working from bed is a time-honored tradition upheld by some of history’s most accomplished figures.
In the bed during the day...is this you?
Do you ever slip off to your bedroom with a cup of coffee and a good book or magazine to get some quiet time? Are you the parent who might use the bed as a hideaway from the chaos? And of course, we all have grabbed a quick nap to "reboot" our day.
Beds and books are such perfect companions. In our busy lives the only time we have to ourselves is that hour or so in bed before we fall asleep. We rarely stop the clock to read during the day but the bed is the one place where we permit ourselves the luxury of losing ourselves in a book, and where others allow us to read without passive-aggressively suggesting we should be doing something more useful.
The finest comfort you can find should be in your bed. It simply cannot be overlooked!
Imagine yourself in luxurious comfort every night, and every nap, and every hideaway moment. Want to be thrilled with your bed? Let's think about a new one!
First decision, what type of bed would fit your idea of the perfect hideaway?
Wooden or upholstered?
The Wooden Bed
The natural beauty of wood
Wooden furniture gives your room natural, cozy warmth. You don’t need to think much about the decor of your bedroom if you place a large, polished natural wood piece of furniture in the middle of it. A timeless, more traditional wooden bed complements most any interior design.
A wooden bed is a practical piece of furniture
Not only the wooden bed is easy to match with other interior details – more importantly, it is very easy to care for. Simple periodical cleaning using a damp cloth and some water would perfectly work. Or if you lazy to do so – simply dust off the headboard and the bed frame of your bed and it will do a trick!
Wooden beds come in a wide range of styles
There are so many wood bed variations!As wood beds, upholstered beds also come in an enormous amount of different styles, colors, and materials.
Wooden beds are firm and sturdy
Being naturally sturdy and strong, wooden beds are exceptionally stable so that you can sleep in it very confidently. They are also pretty resistant to various types of liquids and stains, therefore you don’t have to worry about it getting damaged even if you have both kids and pets in the house.
The Upholstered Bed
The upholstered bed is exceptionally soft and comfy
If you are a person who values the comfort of bed the most – you might like the upholstered bed more than a wooden one. An upholstered bed is wrapped in a cushioned fabric that maximizes your sleeping comfort to the highest. But more importantly, sitting, scrolling on our phone or laptop, doing work, watching tv...anything you can think of doing is most comfortable in an upholstered bed.
Upholstered beds are versatile AND beautiful
You can have an upholstered bed in most any color plus you can choose from different shapes and fabrics. An upholstered bed creates an inviting and luxurious look in your bedroom, and you can use it as the center of your decorating focus for the rest of the room.
