Designing a Luxurious Bedroom Part 1
For many, the bedroom is a personal sanctuary and a place of peace, quiet and the feeling of restfulness and relaxation, as after all it is recommended that for optimal health we should be getting between eight and ten healthy hours of quality sleep each night. Though that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t sleep in luxury or be surrounded by luxury when asleep as after all the rest of your interior design is all about luxury and surroundings.
Let us atPalmer & Penn guide you on how to perfectly design your bedroom for that perfect and luxurious night’s sleep where you can sleep in comfort like a king or a queen.
The perfect bed is the most important and quintessential part of any bedroom and this is no different for a luxury bedroom as the bed will be the centrepiece and dictate the design and look of the rest of the room. As well as showing off feelings of prestige and elegance a bed has a number of crucial features and factors that must be taken into consideration, these include; safety, comfort, support, and design.
Depending on your style and how you like to sleep, Palmer & Penn have a number of luxurious bedding options for you to choose from. If you like to sleep in elegance and bestow the look of power like a king or queen, perhaps a wooden four-poster canopy bed such as aRalph Lauren Desert Modern Canopy is the perfect choice for you. If you prefer a more open style of sleeping, especially in the summer time as a cool breeze flows in, perhaps aSanora Canyon bed is more suited to your needs. If your style is more to keep your feet up as you sleep or keep the warmth in, aMayfair Tufted Bed may be more of your style. For something that is a bit different, however still shows off luxury and class,Dalton Leather Bed with Peninsula Nutmeg Leather and contrast stitch detailing may take your fancy.

A must for any luxury bedroom and a necessity for practicality reasons and purposes, an aesthetically pleasing bedside table can become a decorative piece all in itself. Obviously you will need somewhere convenient and easy to keep those night time possessions of yours such as a bedside reading lamp and glass of water as well as somewhere to keep your everyday valuables, however there is no reason for this to take away the feelings of charm and elegance from your luxury bedroom.
