A good night’s sleep can be the basis of everything.

From waking feeling energised and ready to take on the day, to waking feeling exhausted – the kind of night’s sleep you’ve had impacts all aspects of your life, from your mood, to what you eat.

We all know about the golden eight-hour rule, but what happens if your bedroom environment is playing havoc with your routine?

Here at The Home Company, we take sleeping seriously – so much so we’ve got a gorgeous selection of beds and bedroom furniture to help our customers create a slumber sanctuary of rest and relaxation.

From single beds, double and king-size, bedside tables, lighting, sumptuous bedding, dressing tables, wardrobes and more – we’re here to help you create the dream – literally!

At The Home Company, you can even ‘Go Bespoke’ when it comes to buying a new bed and choose one that exactly matches your own needs and specifications. Or for those living in homes with difficult access, our new mattress-in-a-bag features up to 4000 pocket springs and a luxurious cashmere topper.

Here are our top tips to create the ultimate bedroom experience:

1. Choose a colour scheme that will aid relaxation. Blues, greens, yellows and lilacs are a great choice.

2. Keep it simple. Clutter, excess decoration and oversized furniture can be disruptive to a good night’s sleep.

3. Don’t overdo it. We often have a tendency to pack in too much furniture to one space. Think carefully about what you need in your bedroom – a bed and a couple of bedside tables is just the right amount of furniture for the average sized bedroom.

4. Choose the best mattress you can afford. The average life cycle of a mattress is around seven years – so be mindful about selecting the right surface for your requirements. With so much choice from foam to pocket spring, it’s important to get it right!

5. Think carefully about accessories, a bed throw and a few cushions can make a lovely addition to a bed – but be careful not to overdo it!

6. Lighting is a key part in creating a sleep-inducing environment. Ceiling lights can often be harsh and too bright – where as a yellow-toned, low wattage light bulb in a beautiful bedside lamp will give just the right amount of light for reading while helping you gently lower your energy levels ready for a good night’s sleep.

7. Block out any outside lights. Blackout blinds and curtains are always a good idea in a bedroom – the darker the better when it comes to bedrooms!
