Redecorating your bedroom is a complicated affair – especially if you're cohabiting. From bedding to mattresses and storage, there are plenty of opportunities for disagreements to arise and wrong-turns to occur. Luckily, we've put together the definitive list of bedroom suppliers, so you can sleep soundly in the knowledge you've got the best in the land (of nod).
Luxuriant, natural mattresses with a 10-year guarantee.
Button & Sprung’s mattresses use a unique, mini pocket-spring design that gives you all the support you need. What’s more, it offers a 100-night return policy, so if you’re not happy with your mattress after 100 sleeps, they’ll swap it or give you your money back. Plus, they’ll install it and get rid of your old mattress for free.
Best For: Good value mattress for smaller budgets.
Although Ikea’s top of the range (and most expensive) model, the HESSENG mattress won Which’s Best Buy for mattresses this year, so the home of flat-pack clearly knows how to deliver a good night’s sleep. Perhaps not surprising for a brand hailing from Sweden (where there’s little light in the winter months), Ikea has a comprehensive range of bulbs and lighting for bedrooms, too.
Best For: Elevated beds.
Stylish and affordable, Made.com has an array of off-the-peg bed designs that clear the floor for air circulation, from upholstered to wooden and even copper-coloured. Our faves are Jonah, Dulwich and Willow.
Best For: Premium natural linens at fair prices.
Secret Linen Store does a beautiful line of pure cotton bedding in calming, subtle designs. Thread counts range from 200 to 600 threads per square inch and come in three different finishes to suit your bedroom style. It also makes bedding to fit Ikea duvets and pillows (which are non-standard sizes in the UK).
Best For: Black-out and thermal-lined curtains to keep you snug and in the dark.
As the name suggests, all of Natural Curtain Company's curtains and blinds are made in the UK using cotton and natural fibres, which means they hang better as well as help your bedroom breathe. Available as ready-made or custom sizes, and in a huge array of beautiful fabrics – they'll even make up designs in your own choice of fabrics if you can't find your perfect match.
Best For: Alarm clocks and bedding.
Head to trusty High Street stalwart, John Lewis for duvets, pillows, mattress toppers and, well practically everything else you need for bedroom bliss. You'll find entry-level duck feather and down duvets from £34.95, plus a great range of gadgets which wake you up gradually, using light to simulate the sunrise, so you wake up refreshed. Much nicer than that shrill alarm clock bell.
Best For: Cushions, rugs, throws and bedroom accessories.
From washing baskets to dressing table trinkets, Zara Home has the kit you need to beautify your bedroom. It wins hands-down for its impressive range of on-trend cushions; faux fur, frills, checked flannel, velvet, cotton boucle, feather-edged, lace and printed linen – you name it, Zara Home's got it. The hard part is choosing which ones to take home.
Now you've got your directory sorted, you can start putting thought to the fun part: The decorating scheme. Find out how to create a bedroom for a good night's sleep for sweet dreams forever more.
