How to give your bedroom a makeover

Your bedroom is arguably the most important room in the house – it’s the one you likely spend the most time in, and it should be somewhere you go to switch off, relax and drift off night after night.

If your bedroom is in need of a re-fresh, or you’ve just moved house and are starting from scratch, we’ve pulled together some things to consider to help you style your bedroom into the perfect sleep space.

Bedroom sanctuary

Maximise the space you have

If you’ve got room for a King Size bed, go for it. 2 adults sleeping together in a double bed will have the equivalent of a baby’s cot each to sleep in, so where space permits a King Size bed and mattress will provide a much better night’s rest (and some room to wiggle, too). Outside of your bed, choose furniture to suit the size of the space – small furniture will look lost in a big room and you’ll find yourself trying to fill the space down the line.

Top tip - If your room has high ceilings, a taller headboard will help fill the wall space. Check out our range of headboards.

Think hard about colour

Choosing the colour of your bedroom and everything in it (walls/bedding/linen/accessories) isn’t a decision you should make too quickly.

Firstly, colours will look different in different room sizes and lighting, so just because that deep blue looked great on that Pinterest photo you’ve saved, doesn’t always mean it will work in your own bedroom space.

Choose a rough colour palette you like, and buy lots of tester pots to try on the walls first. You’ll be surprised how different a colour can look on different walls, even in the same room. Spend a few days considering the testers, and then make your final decision.

There are no rules when it comes to colour in your bedroom, it’s all personal taste. Choose a neutral colour palette if you prefer a soothing, more relaxed bedroom sanctuary or make it pop with a feature colour wall or bright furniture if you want a more colourful space. Our headboards and divan sets come in a wide range of colours, so why not brighten up your bedroom with our pink or ochre sets?

Bring in your personality

You (and your partner if you have one) will spend the most time in this room, so make it your own. Don’t feel pressured by the latest Instagram craze or what’s in the magazine on your coffee table – decorate your bedroom exactly how you would like to. There are so many ways to bring personality into the room, through art prints, flowers, family photos and quirky accessories.

60 night comfort exchange

Our comfort exchange gives you 60 nights to get really comfortable before making a decision. If you're still not loving your new mattress within 60 nights from delivery, you can exchange it for another mattress. It's as simple as that.

Here's how it works:

  1. Pick your new mattress on the official Silentnight website
  2. Sleep on it for at least 28 nights as it can take a little time to adjust to a new mattress
  3. If you're not happy after the initial 28 nights you can exchange it for a new mattress, as long as you claim within 60 nights of delivery
