Choosing the perfect bed
Choosing the proper bed and mattress for a great night of sleep can be very difficult, especially when you have two different types of sleepers sharing the same bed. Some like their mattress to be firm, while others prefer a softer pillow top or feather option. Regardless, it is important that you take your time looking for the perfect mattress and test them out. A good mattress and bedding that suits your body is critical in ensuring you have a good night sleep and are well rested for your day.
High quality sheets are a must to create a feeling of luxury in your bedroom. There is nothing better than to crawl into bed after a long day and enjoy the feeling of Egyptian cotton surround your body. If budget is an issue, I would recommend splurging on your sheets and saving on your duvet cover or comforter. White sheets are a staple for every decorator and a solid duvet cover allows you to change up your toss cushions and throws easily to transform the look of your space.
Today’s trends are all about being eclectic with your furniture options. Choose a bed and headboard that take presence of your space and match with unique pieces to complete the look. Determine your function, how much and what kind of storage do you require in your night stands and dressers. With the walk-in closets that are being implemented into today’s homes, there is less of a need for dressers with lots of storage. Many people are opting for less bulky pieces of furniture and going with pieces with more individuality. Often we are seeing people replace the typically night stand with an end table that offers more personality and character. Like your living room, it is nice to think outside the box and experiment with different items for different functions. It is best not to be matchy matchy, so don’t worry if your bed, night stands and dressers all match. Change it up and add some pizzazz.
Once you have chosen the type of mattress your body prefers, it is time to look for the perfect bed for your space. Just like with any furniture, you need to decide how you want it to function. Typically, most clients want a bed of good quality that will last for years to come. I always recommend trying to stick with Canadian Made furniture when you want quality that will stand the test of time. At Jillian’s Design Elements, we offer many bed options in many styles at many different price points. The two Canadian Made suppliers that we offer and recommend most allow for you to customize your color and finish to make the perfect bed for your space.
Van Gogh is a Canadian manufacturer out of Vancouver that we love. In addition to sofas, chairs and ottomans they also carry some incredible beds and headboards, which you can customize with three hundred and fifty fabric options. If you do not want to invest in an entire bed, you can always splurge on a fabric headboard and just pair it with a metal frame.
Amisco is another Canadian company that we love. They offer many bed options with a wide range of price points. They too allow for you to customize your look with twelve metal finishes and thirty fabric options. You can choose to just purchase the headboard or the entire bed. Most of their bed styles allow for you to choose your support. The mattress support options include a non versatile support, which can only be used with a box spring and mattress. A versatile support, which is a great option as it allows you to use it with or without a box spring. Or a platform mattress support, which only requires a mattress, foam or coil and gives a great overall look. They also offer a variety of accessory options such as magnetic LED lamps, under bed storage and LED strip lighting.
