Do invest in good quality bedding: Choose high-quality sheets, pillows, and a mattress to ensure comfort. Good bedding contributes to better sleep and enhances the overall aesthetic of the room. We highly recommend choosing linen bedding!

Do incorporate a neutral palette: Calm neutral colours like soft whites, greys, and beiges for walls and large furniture create a serene atmosphere to optimise relaxation. 

Do layer lighting: Use a combination of ambient and accent lighting to create a cozy environment. Bedside lamps and dimmable lights allow you to cater to your varying moods and activities. We recommend warm-toned lighting as it encourages healthy sleep and deep relaxation.

Do add personal touches: While a neutral base palette is recommended for the bedroom, remember that it's important to add touches of your favourite colours, items, and memorabilia. Family photos, artwork, and your favourite decor make the space uniquely yours. 

Do consider storage: Walk-in robes may not be an option for everyone but, the integration of efficient storage like dressers and nightstands helps to keep your suite tidy. Multi-functional furniture - including a high bedframe for under-mattress storage - is sure to maximise your space.

Don't overcrowd the space: Avoid filling the room with too much furniture. This can make the space feel cramped and chaotic. Remember, keep it simple. 

Don't ignore proportions: Oversized pieces can overwhelm the space while undersized items can make it feel unfinished. Choose furniture that aligns with the measurements of the master suite. 

Don't neglect window styling: Don't overlook the importance of curtains and blinds. Depending on your vibe, the right window finishes can add softness to the room, provide privacy, and allow you to control natural light. 

Don't follow trends blindly: Avoid decorating your room in a 'trend' that isn't aligned with your personal style. Opt for timeless pieces that you know you'll love long-term. 

Don't use harsh lighting: Don't rely on harsh direct lighting. Avoid harsh LED downlights and opt for softer lamps, bedside lighting, and other diffused sources of light.
