Choosing between spring and foam comes down to the materials used and the style of construction in each one. Let’s understand the basics of each mattress type.SPRING MATTRESSInvented first in the mid-nineteenth century, spring mattresses have been around a long time. They are made of steel or metal springs, or coils, surrounded by layers of various materials like foam, fibre pads and quilting for foundational support, comfort and bounciness.
6. Add an eye-popping artwork A pale boudoir can appear a bit too quiet without mood-lifting embellishments. Inject personality and interest into a space with measured pops of colour, alluring artwork, photographs, prints and original art.Take a look at this baby-blue bedroom, which allows the framed vivid graphic artwork to completely steal the limelight.
2. Go for higher beds, furnitureLow furniture can sometimes make it difficult for older people to get up and sit down independently. For them, a higher bed is an essential. In the public areas too, if possible, go for furniture pieces that are at a standard height – so definitely no on-the-floor diwans or low-seating dining tables. For their bedroom, a good thumb rule is to look for a bed with a height such that the feet can just reach the floor when seated on the edge of the mattress. Take a cue from this image and bring in a thick mattress to add to the bed height. The padded headboard provides soft cushioning to comfortably rest against, too.Tip: Make sure there is proper visibility in their room at night. Additionally, install bedside lamps with special care for dark corners.
Bring artwork in the foregroundMonochromatic colour schemes work best when light and dark variations of the same colour are used to create a harmonious setting. This arrangement is ideal to display a work of art as the distractions are minimal in a single colour setting.
1. Question yourself about what you really needThe first thing you need to do is look around and ask yourself questions about every little thing you have in your bedroom. Does this belong in the bedroom? Does this belong somewhere else, and is in my room for no reason? Did I use this in the past year? Do I really need it? Am I holding on to this item unnecessarily? If I were shopping right now, would I buy this? When you ask honest and direct questions, trust me, you will get direct answers. And you’ll know what needs to be kept and what needs to be tossed out.
