Your bedroom is your safe haven, where you can relax at the end of the day. It should be somewhere you enjoy being, so you should decorate it in a way you love. Some people like changing their bedroom every year or so, to keep things fresh. However, if you would rather have a bedroom that lasts for years, you have to take a different approach. Buying cheap items for IKEA might be fine if you’re not planning on it being permanent. But if you want your bedroom furniture and everything else in the room that survives for longer, that’s not going to cut it. Keep reading to find out how to make it work.

Choose Sturdy Furniture

If you want your bedroom to stand the test of time, you have to invest in your furniture. Flatpack items might be cheap, but they’re not intended to last you that long. If you spend enough on some quality pieces, they could still be around decades later. That doesn’t mean you have to pay a small fortune to get some decent furniture. You can find oak bedroom furniture for a good price that will be durable. You can also go looking for antique and secondhand items. If they have lasted for years and are still intact, they could last for many more.

Invest in Your Mattress

Your mattress is one of the most important things about your bedroom. It can be the difference between a good night’s sleep and insomnia. They can get expensive, and some of the prices might put you off. You can buy cheap mattresses, but the chances are that you will be buying another one not long after. A cheap mattress is unlikely to give you much support or be useful for anything except an occasionally used guest bed. You don’t have to go to the higher end of the scale and buy a memory foam or latex mattress. A pocket sprung mattress can be just as good and last you a long time.

Choose a Design You Will Love for Longer

When you decorate a child’s bedroom, you have to be careful you don’t choose a design they will soon grow out of. However, you should also do the same for your bedroom. Of course, you’re not going to become too mature to have Spongebob Squarepants on the walls. But your tastes can still change, and you can regret choosing a particular design. To avoid this, you could consider avoiding anything that makes too much of a statement. Try to keep things a little simpler.

Focus on Easy Maintenance

A bedroom that needs a lot of care could quickly fall apart. If you don’t have time to tidy and clean, some things could start to deteriorate. When you’re deciding how to decorate, think about keeping things low-maintenance. If you don’t have to do a lot of work on keeping the room in good condition, there’s less risk of it going south.

If you want a bedroom that lasts for years, be prepared to invest in it. You can create a room that you’ll love forever.
