The bedroom is a sanctuary, a place to relax, unwind and of course sleep! Yet when it comes to interior design, our bedroom inspiration is often limited and that important personal space gets neglected.
As a room seen less frequently by visitors, we settle for painting the walls, or slapping on some wallpaper and instead throw our creativity into the living room and kitchen where our efforts can be appreciated by a wider audience.
However, consider this: the average person spends 25 years asleep and 7 years trying to get to sleep in their lifetime. That’s an awful lot of time to be spent in a less than perfect space!
Brick slips are a great way to transform a bedroom and turn it into an indulgent, luxurious retreat worthy of spending a third of our lives in.
Read on for some bedroom inspiration and find out how to turn your personal space into the haven it should be!
Where to place your brick slip feature wall
Often the biggest question after deciding to install a brick slip feature wall in your bedroom is which wall to use.
Ask yourself where your eye is naturally drawn to upon entering the room. Often, it is the wall on which your bedhead rests, although if you have a particularly nice window, this can be a good choice too and is a fantastic way to frame a pretty view.
Once you’ve picked your wall, the installation is easy. Brick slips are applied just like tiles and our friendly team of experts are on the other end of the phone to guide you through the process and answer any questions you might have.
Design styles for bedroom inspiration
Our brick slips come in many different colours and textures which have the potential to create a range of design styles to spark your bedroom inspiration, from bright, modern and contemporary, to traditional rustic charm.
For example, combining a classic red brick such as our ‘Hastings Red Blend’ which has a warm, natural ambience with industrial fixtures and fittings will give you a converted warehouse apartment feel.
Add layered rugs, sumptuous cushions and bedding and you have a truly indulgent space you can really kick back in.
Finish the room with a large, bold, colourful print and a low lying futon style bed and you have the ultimate in comtemporary chic.
The possibilities really are endless so if you’re not sure which style is right for you, have a look through our gallery for some bedroom inspiration.
A grown up space for teens
A brick slip wall can also be a great choice for teenagers who have outgrown their childhood bedroom and want something a bit more grown up.
They can tape up as many posters of their favourite musicians or sports heroes as they like without any paint or wallpaper to destroy.
When they do fly the nest you’ll be left with a very tasteful room needing minimal decoration to convert into that gym or craft room you’ve always wanted!
Having somewhere to relax and unwind is so important, especially as our lives get busier and more demanding.
The bedroom is the ultimate retreat, it’s a space that’s just yours and therefore worth investing some time in.
But rather than searching for bedroom inspiration down the paint aisle, why not give brick slips a try. For a timeless, classic look that you’ll never get tired of there really is no competition!
