Our Bedroom - The Big Reveal (YAY)

After 4 months of being in our house our bedroom is finally complete and we have moved into it.

As mentioned previously we had to remove wood chip wallpaper, then had the whole room completely replastered, including covering the dreadful artex ceiling. 

The room only had two single plug sockets, so we had to get an electrician in to install new ones. It was a much bigger job than anticipated. The poor guy was here until very late!

We then painted everywhere, including the built in wardrobe and main door, so everything is a clean white look. 

We have gone for a feature grey wall behind our bed. It is a lot paler than we were expecting, but it'd fine. 

We got made to measure mirrored sliding door wardrobes from @spaceslide. They are a local company to ourselves. We only got the doors from them. Once they fitted them, Gavin and my dad shelves it out. It's better than I could've imagined. The 4 doors, plus fitting came to £1,500. It was going to be another £1,000-2,000 for shelves. We have managed to do it for less than £300. 

Our carpets are from Marshalswick Carpets. We got quotes from John Lewis and them, and they came out cheaper. The brand is "Cormar Carpets" in polypropylene, which is recommended for bedrooms. 

Our bed is also new from @bensonsforbedshq. It is the Atlas Ottoman in Oyster. We wanted a new bed as our old mattress was very old, and we only had a double. We wanted a kingsize with lots of storage. This bed offers that, plus a solid base. Therefore much more durable, as I didn't want to be fixing slats!

Our bedside tables are from Ikea. They are the Malm range at the bargain price of £30 each. On them are our bedside lamps, which are from Costco. I only have to touch the base to turn it on and off. 

We have a blackout blind at the window, especially as Gav often works nights. 


  1. It sounds amazing! We are currently doing our bedroom too. It's not exciting isnt it x

  2. It looks great! Well done you :)
