The surfaces of Metallic Illusion tiles have a cement-like structure, with pleasant warming rust tone shimmering through them.

Beautiful Bespoke Bedrooms, from Top to Bottom

Creating your perfect bespoke bedroom means bringing the entire design together in a cohesive way – incorporating an effective layout with quality furniture and all the little details that make your room unique. Your bedroom should be a tranquil and luxurious place where you can relax at the end of the day, but it’s needn’t be just for sleeping! Your bedroom can also be your dressing room, a place to read or watch films, or even act as a home-office. To design your ideal bedroom, you need to decide exactly what purpose the room will serve. If you’re a developer designing several different types of bedroom, think about the type of buyer you want to appeal to – young professionals, families, people looking for a retirement home – and consider the types of bedroom fixtures and furnishings that would be most useful to them.

bespoke bedrooms

When we work with architects, developers and project managers to design bespoke bedrooms, we look at the whole design as well as its composite parts, from top to bottom. Our A3 colour design and setting out service means that you are able to refer to a detailed plan of the room at every stage of construction and decoration, including individual elements like lighting and electrics, door positioning, and dimensions of bespoke furniture like built-in wardrobes. This allows each trade to work efficiently with each other and reduces the risk of delays or mistakes.

So, what are the elements that make a beautiful bespoke bedroom?

First, it’s essential to create the right floor plan. Traffic flow will move move mostly between the bedroom and the bathroom, so you may wish to incorporate an en-suite or wet room into your plans if you have the space. Similarly, walk-in wardrobes or dressing rooms can elevate a bedroom into an exclusive area that makes getting ready each morning a joyful experience.

bespoke bedrooms

If you have any existing large pieces of furniture that you want to include in your plans, like a bed, storage, shelving, artwork, or seating, make sure you take accurate measurements so that you can make the best decision about positioning each piece.

Try to keep your bedroom design as simple as possible, with enough storage to ensure that the room stays de-cluttered and clear. Bookshelves, under-bed drawers, floor-to-ceiling wardrobes, and storage chests are all options that allow you to keep your bedroom tidy while complementing with your overall aesthetic – choose materials, colours and textiles that suit your design to co-ordinate with other elements in your room.

Define a few choice focal points such as a stunning statement bed or headboard, a beautiful built-in wardrobe or a vintage piece of furniture. Complement these with timeless and stylish design choices like hardwood floors, shuttered windows or a luxurious rug.

Add your own unique style with individual details such as artwork, feature walls, bed linen, cushions, or even by incorporating luxury tiling into your bedroom decoration. As discussed in one of our previous blog posts, interesting tiling can create an amazing look for bedroom walls, and even work as a headboard.

Walk-in wardrobes or bespoke fitted wardrobes are a must in any luxury bedroom, providing you with the space and organisation to store and display your clothes and accessories while keeping in line with your overall bedroom design. The great thing about built-in wardrobes is the ability to pick and choose different storage elements; from rails to drawers to shelves to specially designed shoe racks and tie holders!

And finally, don’t forget about lighting. To set different moods in your bedroom, you’ll need the ability to choose between a variety of lighting styles: from bright and welcoming to warm and romantic. Discuss lighting options with your interior designer and architect to incorporate fixed lights into your bedroom, and consider additional lamps and lights to be positioned around the room.

Designer Tiles for New Developments

Designer tiles needn’t be restricted to bathrooms and shower rooms. Beautiful interior design is about finding the right aesthetic for every room, and designer tiling can be applied to a great variety of locations, from headboards to dividing walls, stairs to mantelpieces. This style of luxury interior design is perfect for new developments, as you are able to work with a blank canvas to create exactly the look you’re after. Designer tiles can elevate a new development into a unique and luxurious space that will entice clients to make themselves at home.

This stunning use of tiling creates a subtle textured headboard for a bespoke bedroom, making use of the reflective detail in the tiles to bring interest and light to an intimate space. Tiles can be used for bedrooms in many ways, including linking flooring into an en-suite or walk-in wardrobe, embellishing storage areas or providing a feature wall.

Designer tiles can be used to great effect in exclusive public spaces too, such as the chic spa changing room below. The designer tiling here has been used to highlight a dividing wall as well as giving interest to walls and providing a clean and functional floor. Intelligent lighting design has also been used to create an open and inviting atmosphere. This seamless look is so simple but is a fantastic example of effective use of designer tiling.

Designer Tiling for Luxury Development Interior Design

designer tiling for luxury developments

Luxury developments can create a sense of exclusivity with interior design – a coherence that moves from room to room. A simple, practical and elegant way to achieve this is by using designer tiling.

Designer tiles can be used to create a flow from one room to another, whether they are placed on the floor, walls, or used to provide interest or highlight feature areas. A popular choice for this method is to coordinate an en suite with an adjoining walk-in wardrobe or dressing room. Since these rooms will be positioned next to or close by one another, incorporating designer tiling into the décor can bring a chic and seamless look to your interior design.

Similarly, bathrooms, wet rooms, shower areas and steam rooms can all be coordinated using matching or complementary designer tiles. These can be incorporated into dividing walls, flooring, built-in storage areas, and feature walls. Luxury spa developments can also make great use of coordinating designer tiles to turn communal areas and treatment rooms into spaces that reflect the brand and atmosphere of the business.

You can even use designer tiling to match rooms that aren’t adjacent to each other, bringing a sense of your bedroom style into your en suite, or coordinating your kitchen with your bathroom.

Other methods of creating a ‘flow’ between different rooms include lighting, storage, fixtures and soft furnishings. Our setting out and interior design service will help you to make decisions on all aspects of your luxury development, from the positioning of wall switches to the style of designer tile you choose for  your bathroom floor. Get in touch to find out how our A3 colour design service can streamline your development schedule and coordinate every room for a stunning and coherent design aesthetic.

Winners of their monthly mystery shopper reviews are automatically shortlisted for the KKB Review Awards, which will be held in Birmingham in March, 2014. The reviewer who visited the Concept Virtual Design showroom said she had never given a 10/10 rating before and that our attention to detail was evident in our displays and the customer service she received during her visit.

Here’s the KBB review in full:

From its black painted exterior to its imaginative window displays, this Villeroy & Boch bathroom showroom enticed me in.

There was a circular bath in the window with a gold mosaic walk-in spiral shower behind. Further in, I found more examples of showers and baths, plus a separate room showcasing Art Linea basin options, including console and wall-hung models all set against silver crocodile skin wallpaper. Frank Sinatra crooning softly in the background underlined the classy presentation.

The Showroom manager joined me and couldn’t have been more helpful or friendly. She explained how V&B basins, furniture and tiles all came in a variety of sizes so that I would be guaranteed to find something to fit. “Also, prices range from £89 for a basin to over £800, so it is very easy for us to meet your budget.”

Designing a Bespoke Bedroom – Choosing Your Furniture

bespoke bedroom design

When you want to design a bespoke bedroom, the furniture you choose must serve several purposes: it must have a functional use, match your interior design style and possibly also provide additional storage or a second practical purpose. As William Morris once said:

“Have nothing in your homes that you do not know to be useful and believe to be beautiful.”

Before you begin to plan your bedroom, make a list of essential pieces (beds, wardrobes and clothes storage), secondary elements (flooring, seating, lighting and shelving), and finally decorative items (mirrors and artwork). Browse online, look through magazines, and in stores to gain a sense of your preferred style – think about materials, fabrics, tones, colours, textures and finishes. You can then start to put together a mood board or folder containing the types of furniture and styling that suits you best. It’s also important to consider the rest of your home’s décor to ensure that your interior design is consistent. Look at what you already have in your home and look for complementary pieces that will give a sense of flow throughout the house.

When choosing your bedroom furniture, think about what you will use each piece for. Can a desk double as storage? Can a bench house media storage or a hidden television? Can you adjust your space to make room for a walk-in wardrobe or en-suite? Find out what is most important to you in a bedroom and take the time to consider every option to make your design perfect.

Before you make any final decisions you will need an accurate floor plan of your bedroom. Concept Virtual Design’s virtual setting out service can be a valuable tool at this point and can help you to visualise your bedroom furniture in place. Our A3 colour design service allows you to see exactly what your bespoke bedroom will look like, including the positioning of electrical sockets, doorways, windows and any other specific dimensions of your room. Once you are sure your chosen pieces fit well – or have the dimensions you need to commission bespoke furniture – you can start to put together your design and purchase your furniture!

Creating a Period Style Bathroom

If you love period style, create a beautiful vintage bathroom by combining high quality fixtures with unique pieces of furniture to bring a mix of old and new together in harmony.

Firstly, decide on the type of vintage style you’d like to create – from iconic Art Deco or classic Victorian, there’s a wealth of inspiration to be had from years gone by. Do some research into the type of look your favourite era produced and think about which elements you’d like to incorporate into your bathroom. You don’t need to be completely authentic or bring period style to every aspect of your bathroom in order to create the look you want – sometimes it’s a case of choosing just a few central elements to give a sense of the era you’d like to emulate, for example: a stunning roll-top bath, striking black and white tiling or wallpaper.

period bathroom style

Mixing and matching can have a great effect, bringing together luxurious fittings, interesting antiques, artwork and modern elements to create a truly unique bathroom. If you’re going for genuine vintage pieces you may need to be patient in order to find the right piece of furniture for your space, but if you’re impatient you can always look for reproductions or modern units that emulate your chosen style.

If you already have period features in your bathroom try to make them the focal point of the room. Fireplaces, alcoves, bare floorboards and original tiles all deserve to be flaunted! You can also find original pieces that bring extra character into your bathroom at antique dealers, reclamation yards and even online – why not add a cast iron radiator, fit wooden shutters to the window, turn an old ladder into a shelving unit or restore a beautiful framed mirror?
