There’s no room more personal than the bedroom and yet, when you live with the person you love, it has to suit two people. Here are some ideas for creating a shared bedroom to help both people get the rest they need in the comfort they want. Reading yourself to sleep might be your bedtime routine but not theirs, so choose a lamp that can angle in on your side only. But it doesn’t stop there. Bedside tables, pillows, duvets - why not tailor your side of the bed to suit you? It
is yours after all.
Not everyone has the same bedtime routine. One way to avoid tip-toeing around in the dark is to surround the bed with curtains, like a cocoon. That way you can just sneak out through the curtains and any lights you switch on won’t disturb the one who’s still in bed.
