WHAT PIECES OF BEDROOM FURNITURE ARE AVAILABLE AT HABITAT?
It’s a known fact that getting a good night’s sleep is essential to our health and happiness, so it’s important to create a soothing sleep sanctuary to relax and unwind in. To make sure you always wake up on the right side of the bed, we share our top tips to creating your dream bedroom.
It’s a good idea to start with the bed frame as this will be the centrepiece of your bedroom. Depending on the size of your space, you’ll need to decide on the size that is right for you. It’s worth considering a few factors such as, will you be sharing the bedroom with your partner and are the children likely to be sneaking under your sheets at night? Generally speaking, the bigger the bed, the better the night’s sleep you will have, so we suggest you choose the largest frame that will fit comfortably in your room, bearing in mind the rest of the furniture you will need to fit around it.
Once you’ve chosen your new bed frame, it’s time to find thethat is right for you. Memory foam styles are usually the most popular due to their ability to mould to your individual body shape but there are plenty of pocket spring mattresses that offer great support and comfort. Because everyone is so unique when it comes to bedtime preferences, it’s always best to try before you buy to make sure the mattress has the right firmness for you. For more guidance on buying the right mattress, see our Mattress Buying Guide.
Complementing your new bed with stylish bedroom furniture is the next step. Bedside tables, chests of drawers and dressing tables provide essential storage space and also double up as great perching spots for your favourite bedroom accessories, be it a table lamp or a vase full of beautiful flowers. Available in contemporary and more traditional styles, we offer complete bedroom ranges so you can choose to match your bedroom furniture or mix it up for a unique bedroom setup.

HOW DO YOU KNOW YOUR FURNITURE WILL FIT IN YOUR BEDROOM?
Before you embark on your furniture quest, you’ll need to measure the dimensions of your bedroom as this will – to some extent – determine the styles you choose.
Ourand mattresses are available in a selection of sizes including single, double, king and super king size. You’ll be able to find all the important dimension information on the individual product pages. Considerations should include how high you want your bed to be as you may like to take advantage of under-bed storage, and also the logistics of moving your new bed into your chosen room i.e. will it fit through the front and bedroom door? Another important thing to double check before purchasing is that your mattress and bed are the same size as these can vary from different manufacturers.
You won’t want your bedroom to be too much of a tight squeeze so be sure to work out how much space you have left for the rest of your bedroom furniture, ensuring there’s enough room for doors and drawers to open comfortably. Before investing in any storage furniture, consider what you will be using these for. This will help you decide whether you need a large or small wardrobe and will determine the number/configuration of the drawers you require from your bedside table and chest of drawers.
