1. Functional yet aesthetic storage spaces
What good is a pretty room if it’s not functional and practical as well? Ample storage space that is pleasing to look at and does its job is key in any bedroom. Throw your extra bedding into a basket, or use it to store items like bedroom slippers, extra tissue boxes or hats and bags.

2. For lounging around
The bedroom is your personal space where you spend much of the day in, which is why a proper sitting/lounging area is essential. This cosy space is where you can take a break from work with a cup of coffee or tea, read a book or just to relax and meditate.
A hanging hammock is perfect for afternoon naps, and you can make it extra comfy with a couple of colourful or odd-shaped cushions.
