Mirrors are a useful home decorating tool. They can make a space feel bigger than it really is, they can bring natural light in from the outside if they’re positioned facing windows, they can act as decorative elements, and they serve a practical purpose, in that they help us see what we look like and whether an outfit works or not. When it comes to hanging a mirror – or mirrors – in your bedroom, however, it’s not always so straightforward. Here, we walk you through the different considerations, as well as providing you with some styling ideas for your bedroom mirrors.
Bedside tables don’t get a lot of attention in the context of furnishing and decorating our homes, and yet, they serve several important roles.
One: a bedside table provides a surface on which to rest your belongings while you sleep. This might be where you put your smartphone, your book or Kindle, that notepad and pen if you like to journal or make notes before you go to sleep or when you wake up (or if you can’t sleep), and a jug of water. It’s also where you would place your reading lamp.
Two: a bedside table or nightstand can also be another storage facility if it has a shelf or drawers. And three: a bedside table – or two, if you have space for more than one – serves a visual purpose as well. It helps to ground your bed in your bedroom, preventing the space from feeling floaty and disconnected.
Choosing the right bedside tables is the next step. Here, we’ll walk you through what to keep in mind when you’re shopping for these trusty bedroom sidekicks.
Find the perfect rug for your child’s room with these tips

Here, Juhi Rastogi, Buying Coordinator for Indigo Living, answers all your questions about buying rugs for children’s bedrooms and playrooms.
How to choose the perfect chest of drawers for your bedroom
Add the perfect finishing touch to your bedroom with a Chest of Drawers – not only will it look good, but it will also give your bedroom another storage solution.
Before we get started, though, it’s worth understanding the difference between a chest of drawers and a dresser. Both serve similar purposes, but a dresser tends to have mirror attached to its top surface, and therefore tends to work best in bedrooms, whereas a low-lying chest of drawers could function as a storage space for table linens and cutlery in a dining room, or for other belongings, in a living room.
But how do you choose the right one for your space, and specifically for your bedroom? Find out with the help of our tips below….

Wall art and other decorating ideas for kids’ rooms
White walls may work elsewhere in your home, but in a child’s room, they can look decidedly dull. Feeling stumped by how to decorate them? Not the creative type? Never fear: our tips will give everyone from the cool crafters to the easy-does-it types ideas for what to do with empty wall space in kids’ bedrooms and play-spaces.
Floor Lamps are probably not the first element that springs to mind when you’re furnishing a room – and nor should they be.
