Luxury bedrooms always take into consideration the amount of storage that each client and house requires.

Choosing Bedroom Accessories
Bedroom accessories make up a huge part of the room - particularly as the bedroom most often features several large pieces. Selecting pieces that fit well together within the space is of the utmost importance, however, this does not mean that you need to choose pieces from the same range or suite. A lot of charm and interest can be added to a bedroom when each of the pieces has a slightly different look, as there is a warmth that comes with this type of eclectic look. Choose a suite, or an array of individual pieces that will suit your needs and reflect your tastes.
There are many materials, textures and colours that are suitable for a bedroom. It is often advised to keep one or two themes or colours consistent so that the room has a harmonious atmosphere, however, there are no strict rules when it comes to designing a bedroom, and as there are only a few practical considerations in design, it is possible to create a really individual, luxurious bedroom.
The wardrobe and bed are staples of any bedroom, so when creating a luxury bedroom it is important to choose these with great attention. A bed can vary in a multitude of ways - a bed that is low to the ground will bring an air of relaxation, a four-poster bed brings a sense of historical glamour, whilst an interesting or unique headboard will bring a modern, designer feel to the room. Bedside accessories such as the bedside table and lamp can be selected to match or contrast with the bed, depending on the overall feel of the room.
Bedroom storage can be added in many places, from a wardrobe and chest of drawers to clever extra storage in the bedside table, ottoman and under-bed compartment. Consider your storage needs and make sure to discuss them with your interior designer so that you are able to achieve the look that your require whilst also creating a practical and functional bedroom design.
Accessories that add charm and personality will vary from bedroom to bedroom - however items to consider adding are a mirror, either freestanding or wall-hung, to add a reflective, bright surface and a focal point to the room. A chair can often add another texture and a pop of colour to a bedroom, and brings a luxurious and relaxed feel to the room.
As lighting is always a vital element to a successful, luxury bedroom design you should consider this as a priority. Depending on the mood of the room and the amount of natural light available, you can select from an opulent chandelier, a contemporary, high-design pendant or numerous wall and ceiling lights. Selecting the correct lighting will set the mood and atmosphere in the room and is sure to be the final touch of luxury in your designer bedroom.
