Unique Additions

With every home, it’s great to be able to inject some individuality and add unique features that aren’t seen as often. One really effective feature for both style and space saving is a sliding door. If your bedroom happens to have an en-suite, or you simply want to be able to open it up to an additional bedroom or dressing room, then sliding doors are perfect for this. Introducing sliding doors to your bedroom will give you the option to open up the room fully without having a door that takes up any additional space. Sliding doors are a great benefit when it comes to allowing more natural light to also travel into your room, and this can help to create a fresh, relaxing atmosphere too. You can find sliding doors in all different materials and styles, along with stylish sliding door handles too, so you can rest assured you’ll find the perfect type for your bedroom. Another unique addition that is quite popular in the interior design world is a window seat. This feature is only really practical if you have low set windows that would accommodate a window seat, however if your room has this kind of style then they’re the perfect feature for you. Imagine being able to gaze out of the window at the starry sky, with a good book and glass of wine. It’s something that has always looked amazing within many interiors, and can often be quite easy to create. Window seats are the perfect way of adding a unique touch to your bedroom and creating a space for you to relax and enjoy your room in peace.

Practical yet Stylish Touches

It can often be difficult to decide exactly what you want in your bedroom, whether you feel the need for a grand plasma TV or you’re more of a wall sized bookcase kind of person, but dependant on your personal style, there are some great practical touches that you can add to your room and still inject bursts of character by doing so. If you want a large plasma screen TV in your bedroom, many designs see the TV positioned neatly in the centre of the wall opposite the bed. Often when rooms have a fireplace you may be able to place it above there too, which will add heaps of character. You could opt for a cupboard that closes the TV away when not in use, which will create a different look to your room that stands out and looks great. Then you have features such as a dressing table, which is a necessity if you enjoy sitting down and glamming up in front of a mirror, with easy access to all of your beauty products. Finally, introducing items such as artwork and family photographs is the perfect way to inject character to your room, whilst adding a very unique touch. Artwork can be found in so many weird and wonderful ways, therefore there’s never really any one piece the same. This is where the unique touch comes in, having something that represents your personality or interests will ensure your room feels perfect, personal and homely.
