The number one thing to consider when styling your bedroom is that it should be a reflection of you and look and feel the way you want it to. There’s nothing else in your home quite as personal as your bed… It’s the place where you start and finish your day, so it’s important to find something that suits your style and needs. That’s why having designer bedroom furniture, personalized to your requirements should always be an option! And with over 50 years of crafting experience, Nordic Design can certainly create custom bedroom furniture for you.
Choosing your type of bed…
It’s a no brainer that your bed is the key component to your bedroom. And it’s also the piece of furniture which will withstand the most use… So you should really consider your wants and needs carefully. Because at Nordic Design we use the highest quality materials and crafting techniques, this means your bed frame will last you many years while maintaining the same level of quality as the day you first purchased it.
Our timber bed frames are especially desirable because they highlight the use of beautiful natural materials. Nothing compares to using solid hardwood timber… The colour, grain and durability is second to none and a reason we are passionate about crafting our bedroom furniture with it.
Alternatively, you may consider an upholstered bed? They create a sense of luxury and provide ultimate comfort. And there’s no reason to settle for furniture that lacks in the level of style and comfort you desire.
A key thing to consider is your lifestyle… And particularly your sleeping habits. Perhaps you like to read or watch television in the comfort of your bed? This makes an upholstered headboard the perfect choice. Designed to provide cushioned support for your neck and shoulders while oozing coziness. Plus, the look of fabric or leather perfectly suits a bedroom space – it softens the overall atmosphere and creates ultimate indulgence.
If you’re conscious of space, you can choose an upholstered headboard, so you don’t have the added padding surrounding the sides of your mattress. Because each bed is individually crafted, you have plenty of options.
A bedroom space designed for you…
Often, bedroom furniture is perceived as limiting. You start with a timber frame and add colour and feeling through your choices of linen and accessories… This is not the case with our bedroom furniture. As quality furniture manufacturers for over 50 years, we’re very passionate about providing our customers with unique bedroom furniture. Through the use of Australian hardwood timbers, there is a sense of warmth and quality with our bedroom furniture. We can then introduce elements of upholstery to soften your look, should this be your preferred style… See some examples of timber and upholstery combined below.
As everything is locally handcrafted, you’ll notice we pay the finest attention to detail. Hand selecting your timber selections to ensure an even tone and the finest detail in each grain. Then, why not introduce some quality fabrics (or leather)? Working with reputable fabric houses like Warwick Fabrics Australia and Zepel Fabrics, you’re ensured endless options and the best in quality. By incorporating some upholstery into your bed frame you’re creating a level of luxury and adding some personality to your bedroom… And ultimately you’re left with a bed that is unique to you.
Don’t be scared to think big!
When selecting bedroom furniture (particularly your bed frame) you should have fun during the process! Your bed is the one piece of furniture that will be completely yours. Setting the mood for your bedroom, entirely separate from the rest of the house. This is why your bed should become an extension of who you are. Becoming more than just a place for sleep, it’s a place for you to relax, get away or simply chill out – so why not customise it just for you?
As we handcraft each bed in our Adelaide furniture factory, it all starts with the design you choose. In our showroom, we have a variety of contemporary and traditional pieces for you to browse. Plus, you can view our customer variations that come through each week – it can be a great inspiration! With various design styles seen here, we can combine different textiles to make your bed extra special, no matter what design you choose.
We can’t forget the storage
Another important component to any bedroom is the inclusion of storage… Because you can never have too much! Depending on your room will determine how much you need and what types of pieces will do the job. Typically, a chest of drawers, tallboy, wardrobe and bedside tables are the key pieces for most bedrooms. But there’s no set rule… Perhaps you’re low on space? By opting for bedside tables attached to your bed frame, this will free up some floor space. Then by choosing a tallboy (which works upwards rather than outwards), you’ll leave more wall space exposed to give the impression of more room. Another popular options is included under bed drawers – taking up no additional room but offering plenty of added storage – a win win!
Additionally, if space is no issue then you can consider a custom freestanding wardrobe and chests of drawers with custom internals. Considering how much hanging space you need, and even custom compartments for shoes or jewellery. There are endless choices for you to consider.
Of course, if you provide us with room dimensions and a breakdown of your needs, our experienced staff can help with the rest. With our many years of crafting bedroom furniture, we can offer plenty of suggestions and work with you to create the right pieces.
When you have the flexibility to choose your design specifications, colours and materials, you’re guaranteed to go home with your dream bed. Discuss your desires with us and we can customise a bed that’s unique to you. But in the meantime, browse our website to see some variations our previous clients have invented…
